Mask-ne: eczema, dry patches, stinging, burning & inflammation.
Real skin solutions for irritation issues your skin may have never before experienced.
"Why is my skin breaking out?"
Acne Mechanica, or the new coined name "Mask-ne", happens due to rubbing and irritation. Masks can worsen skin issues that already exist or cause new ones. Wearing a re-usable mask is ideal for avoiding waste, but make sure you consider what it is made of. Think of your mask like you would your underwear! A reusable mask should be made of cotton to allow your skin to breath. You should also be washing it often (ideally after every use). Built up bacteria on a mask can lead to further breakouts.
"What can I do about it? Im not used to my skin acting like this"
It is completely normal to not know what to do when you begin experiencing skin conditions like acne, if you've never struggled before. The first step is simplifying your skincare routine and choosing ingredients and products that are going to properly cleanse, heal and protect your skin from further damage. Look for ingredients such as: Turmeric, Almond & Hemp Oils, Rosehip, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E & Witch Hazel.
Using a daily moisturizing barrier such as Zyderma HS Clarifying Creme under your mask will protect from further breakouts and stop the spread of bacteria. Studies have shown that micronized silver cleanses the skin of microbes and reduces the appearance of problem skin.

If you must wear a mask
Follow these Mask Washing Tips
If you are wearing a reusable mask, make sure to wash after every single use. This will help stop the spread of built up bacteria. Have a few masks on hand so you have time to wash them.
Choose a gentle, mild or unscented laundry detergent or soap to wash your masks. Harsh chemicals, perfumes or scents can lead to additional irritation.
