Have to wear a mask everyday! Start to break out! What should I do?

Hello Everyone!

Do you wear a mask everyday??!! Does your face start to break out? Lately, I have that problem. Do you have recommendations to prevent breaking out? 

 

Thanks,

Lina Nguyen

Hi @hellokitty94!

 

These are some things to do to avoid maskne:

  • Don't wear makeup under your mask
  • Apply salicylic acid to your face before putting your mask on.  If you're using a cloth mask, you can spray it on the mask as well
  • Wash your face/ shower and moisturize as soon as you can

Hi, I had this as well. Looked online and a dermatologist said to use a spray cleanser on the mask b4 wear. I've been using the dermalogoica and it's been working. Also change masks at break times.

@hellokitty94  For me what’s been working is minimal makeup and trying to stick more to my eyes! I’ve also added in SEPHORA COLLECTION Clarifying Peel Pads 60 Pads  have also helped me as well.

@hellokitty94 This subject has come up a lot recently, as I'm sure you can imagine, so I'd recommend using the search bar to search "maskne" to see some the suggestions for handling it.
