The mascacné

Use masks it has now become a necessity. The health pandemic with the wave of infections in recent months makes its use necessary, both due to the obligation of the authorities and due to their own responsibility to stop the infections. However, in addition to the inconveniences that the use of disposable masks can present for some people, from difficulty in breathing to those hygienic masks that damage the ears, another has been added: mascacné.

What is the mascacné?

When a mask is worn for many hours and does not have adequate ventilation properties as well as protection, several problems are caused. There is irritation, humidity and heat, it is not uncommon for the skin of the face to suffer and acne caused by the continuous use of certain face masks, the mascacné. The friction produced by the chinstrap due to its continued use, together with poor ventilation, sweat, oil produced by the skin and others, favors the growth of the mascacné.

All this, together with the clogging of the pores, impurities and others, form the mascacné, which are different types of pimples up to the fearsome cystic acne. If you suffer from this type of acne caused by the use of chinstraps, you do not have to resign yourself. Here we will give you some tips to avoid the dreaded mascacné.


How to avoid the mascacné?

  1. Let your skin breathe (in safe environments):

    It is mandatory to use the mouth guard in public places and where you cannot keep a safety distance. But if you are outdoors and there are no people around, you can remove the cover to give the skin of your face a break.

  2. Have spare masks:

    Although there is respiratory protection, the chinstraps that can be worn for a whole day and reused, consider that under certain conditions of heat, contamination, etc., the one you are wearing can be in unacceptable conditions in a few hours. If, for example, you sneezed into it or it got wet because you practiced running with the mask on, you need to change it for a new or clean one.

  3. Wear approved masks that allow breathing:

    There are those who recommend the use of cloth masks, especially cotton. Although this type of natural fiber is favorable to the skin, you should know that it is not recommended to protect you from the coronavirus. In addition to this, it gets wet easily and becomes a breeding ground for germs. When moistened, it can promote mascacne. Avoid cloth masks because, in addition, many of them do not have a filter and are not approved, so they are not entirely effective against COVID.

  4. Follow a facial cleansing routine to avoid mascara:

    Do not wash your skin with normal soaps, but buy specific soaps for acne. Apply mild toners and then a moisturizing cream according to your skin type. Also, check that the compounds in skin products are rich in antioxidants. Wait a few minutes for your skin to absorb everything and not stain the mask. Then you can put on your face shield.

  5. Anti-mascacne night routine:

    Do not go to bed without first thoroughly cleaning the skin of your face from contamination, germs and impurities. Use cleansing products according to your skin type and if you already have mascacne, which contain salicylic acid, AHA acids or benzoyl peroxide. Verify of course that they do not increase the problem, but that they calm and hydrate your skin.
