A Guide to Treat and Prevent Maskne

Things that are currently unclear: our skin and how much longer we have to wear face masks for. Some of us who haven't struggled with acne in years have recently experienced sudden eruptions caused by wearing a cloth or paper mask.

Our medical esthetician Kennedy has been fighting maskne and has found a product combination that has helped her to clear up her breakouts caused by wearing a mask regularly.

The secret?


“I only use one active ingredient, and really focus on hydration”, says Kennedy. “I think that overloading the active ingredients can be more irritating than helpful. This can overdry your skin, and cause breakouts. Keeping the pores open, and hydrated maintains the integrity of the skin and reduces breakouts."

We recommend using this regimen to fight and prevent maskne. To customize for specific skin concerns, come into the Skin Solutions store to discuss with one of our product experts.
