Do you know? Maskne is a real acne related skin condition! And new acne problems require new acne solutions😉 

It is type of acne breakout directly caused by prolonged mask-wearing. It happens mostly on the areas covered by the facial mask. The consequences are frequent acnes on the nose, cheeks, and chin. The cases of maskne have been on the rise since wearing a face mask in public became normal last year when Covid-19 broke out. As of now, mandatory mask wearing remains in a lot of areas in North American, that affects many people that include students who are recently back to school and people are unable to work from home.  

Here are 4 tips to effectively reduce your chances of developing maskne:  

 1. Simplify your skincare routine.  

Less is more when it comes to acne prevention skincare. Also, make sure to use products that are made with natural ingredients that doesn’t irritate your skin.  

Try DermaMed Acne Prone Skin Gel. It helps clearing up acne and reduces redness with natural organic ingredients like Aloe Vera, herbs, Vitamin E, Salicylic Acid, Rosehip oil, Grapefruit seed extract, and Tea tree essential oil. 


  2. Be careful with the mask you wear.  

If you have to wear a mask at work or at school, use masks that are made with 100% cotton.  Cotton made masks not only allow you to breathe better, they give your skin a better chance to breathe too.

Oil and sweat builds up easily inside the mask, so make sure to change to a clean mask regularly. Just treat your mask like how you treat your underwear😊 

 3. Use a natural anti-acne face wash.  

Cleaning is a crucial part of keeping your face free of acne, and choosing the right face wash product is prominent in fighting maskne! 

DermaMed Acne Wash with Tea Tree Extract is an excellent choice to prevent new acne from forming. It removes Debris, impurities, and excess sebum and imparts a clean, refreshing sensation to your face.   

 4. Wear sunscreen

This might be counterintuitive, but wearing a layer of zinc dioxide or titanium dioxide based sunscreen does provide protection for your skin against friction or irritation that might lead to acne breakout.  

Plus, wearing sunscreen protects you against ultraviolet rays and prevents premature photoaging. It is a good habit to wear sunscreen everyday regardless of the weather and season.
