Tips for dealing with Maskne | Sayville Patchogue Moms

Between the stress of the pandemic and all the mask wearing, if your skin has been freaking out- you are not alone. Maskne (acne caused by masks) is caused by blocked pores. So, to combat it you can do a few things:

  1. Try to change your mask every few hours. If you are working for 8 hours with a mask on, try to change the mask at least once during the 8 hours- and if possible, wash your face or wipe with a cleansing cloth, etc
  2. If you are wearing a cloth mask, be sure to clean them after each use.
