At one point or another, most of us have experienced a pimple or two in our lives, or fully suffered through acne.
But, what’s Maskne?
Well, it may be new to us, as wearing masks becomes the new normal, but doctors and healthcare professionals have been dealing with maskne all along. Maskne, also known as mask-related acne, arises from wearing masks on a daily basis, as bacteria accumulates around your mouth, nose, and cheek region.
How does this happen really?
As you breathe and talk, your mask inevitably traps in a lot of warm air, creating a hot & humid environment underneath your mask. Naturally, this becomes an ideal setting for yeast, bacteria, and other flora to form and grow. (Fun fact: Flora, such as demodex, are types of skin mites that naturally live on our skin. Masks let them grow :/)
