How to deal with Mask Acne

 

You must have been using a face mask during the coronavirus pandemic. If you have noticed acne around your mouth then it is because of the mask. Since masks are necessary, it’s important to do whatever we can to subdue concerns about wearing them. Sometimes, using a mask can cause breakouts, redness, and other skin problems on the face. So, here we are giving you the set of tips that will work for all of these pesky skin troubles caused by your mask. But, First things first. Let's get to the root cause of this Mask acne.

What causes Mask Acne?

Covering your mouth and nose with a cover traps your breath and builds a warm, dank setting for your skin. Sweat and oil can develop under the mask which will cause acne.
 
The rugged textures of medical masks and respirators can cause physical
inflammation when they rub the skin while cloth masks can take away our natural oils causing skin dryness. Residue leftovers from washing detergents and fabric softeners can also close pores. This will lead to building acne.

 

 

What Should We Do To Avoid Mask Acnes?

1- Try a silk mask

As we go into a warmer climate, we need to find a mask material that is breathable, moisture-wicking, and doesn’t cause too much harm to the skin’s protecting fence. If you are experiencing skin irritation, it's probably because your mask isn’t the appropriate type of fabric for their skin type. It is extremely important to decrease the amount of friction between your face and the mask.

2- Wash your face regularly

Dust and oil on your skin will get confined under the mask and can cause pimples and acne. Always place your mask on a clean face. Pick a gentle cleanser like Unloc Mixify Clarifying Foaming Face Wash Cleanser that is fragrance-free and oil-free. Wash it with lukewarm water and always avoid scraping or rubbing the skin.

    

3- Apply Moisturizer

Dry skin is a popular face-mask skin problem. Using moisturizer will add a protective coating that can decrease dryness. Apply moisturizer directly after cleansing your face. To get the most advantage from a moisturizer, use one with ingredients like Ceramides, Hyaluronic acid, and Dimethicone like Unloc Mixify Power Duo Day Night Cream.

   

 

4- Skip the makeup

Pandemic is not the right time to put on makeup. It is a good time to let your skin
breathe. Wearing too many makeup products under your mask can create a bacteria build-up on the skin and lead to further irritation and breakouts. 

 

5- Take care of your mask

If you are using a fabric mask, make sure to clean it daily in lukewarm water and dry it thoroughly. If you are wearing a disposable mask, replace it as frequently as
possible to withdraw a build-up of oil and sweat or leave it to dry out in between uses.

6- Avoid harsh products

Medicated products like retinol or benzoyl peroxide are more bothersome under a
mask. If you’re carrying a mask a lot, use less product with these ingredients or stop using them altogether.

The bottom line


These everyday fixes are placeholders. These crisis tactics are here to stay for long. If you are a front-line worker, you can get some products from Unloc Mixify which will provide relief. Also, we respect your courage and Hard work!


Because of the coronavirus, we might be using masks for a long time. The right
skincare habit can help reduce mask-related skin problems and breakouts.
