Maskne is the new acne. Here’s how to deal with it.
2020 has thrown a lot at us this year. Global pandemics, murder hornets, TikTok possibly being shut down in the US and another thing we weren’t expecting: “maskne,” or acne caused by wearing a face mask.
And with our new mask-wearing normal comes a new acne-fighting routine to try to kick unwanted breakouts to the curb.
Struggling with maskne? Let us help you out with this foolproof acne-fighting routine featuring 3 skincare essentials.
Step 1: Peace Out Acne Serum
Start off by applying our daily serum that features some ingredient heavy-hitters like 2% Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide, Vitamin C, and Zinc. They all work together to not only clear blemishes but prevent them from returning.
ICYMI: when we put the serum to the test, it was proven to be non-irritating on skin - masks are already irritating enough!
Step 2: Peace Out Acne Dots
After the serum is applied and dried down on skin, stick an acne healing dot anywhere on your face that needs some extra attention. The hydrocolloid polymer technology is soaked with salicylic acid to minimize breakouts overnight.
Step 3: Peace Out Wrinkles
Last but not least, apply one of our microneedling anti-wrinkling retinol patches to any smile lines you may have. Hey, just because you’re wearing a mask doesn’t mean that those fine lines and wrinkles don’t need some TLC, too!
While maskne may be mighty annoying and it’s tempting to ditch your mask, remember that when it comes to stopping the spread of COVID-19 - wearing a mask and washing your hands is the best thing you can do!
