While masks have their benefits, they can also be hard on your skin, causing problems that range from acne and peeling skin to rashes and itchiness.

To help prevent skin problems from developing under your mask, here are some preventive tips to get rid of maskne:

Change your mask, clean your mask

One of the best ways to protect your skin from unwanted breakouts is to ensure that the mask you are using is clean.

If you are using disposable masks, changing them throughout the day can reduce dirt and oils that may build up on your face.

Make sure you are changing your masks at least daily if they are disposable.

Keeping your mask clean will help keep your face clear of blemishes and maintain healthy skin.

It will also help you protect against cross-contamination.

Keep your skin clean

Using a gentle cleanser to wash your face first thing in the morning and right before bed is a great habit for clear, healthy skin.

Dirt and oil on your skin will get trapped under the mask and can cause breakouts. Always put your mask on over a clean face.

Choose a gentle cleanser that is fragrance-free and oil-free. Rinse with lukewarm water, not hot. Avoid scrubbing or rubbing the skin.

Skip the makeup

Skip the makeup while you’re treating maskne. Beauty products such as foundation, concealer, highlighter, and blush can block your pores and prevent your acne from healing.

Scented face products may also be delaying your acne from healing, so consider switching to an unscented face product.

Masks act like occlusive barriers, which mean trapped makeup can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. Also, residue from makeup can soil your mask fabric.

Avoid touching or picking

Try your best to not touch your face or pick at your maskne.

This may be one of the harder tips to put into practice; touching your face or picking at acne is an easy habit to get into.

But touching your face transfers oils from your hands to your face, which can block pores and create acne; and picking at your acne can make the appearance of the acne worse in the long term.

So while it may be tough to avoid the urge to touch and pick, a hands-off approach is best for your skin.

Skincare myths you wish you knew it before

5th January 2022
"The fact is that a lot of skincare advice just doesn’t work, and some skincare myths can even cause harm."

Everyone wants a clear, radiant complexion. But getting there might depend more on your ability to recognize fact from fiction than how much you follow a cleansing regimen or how much you spend on products. The fact is that a lot of skincare advice just doesn’t work, and some skincare myths can even cause harm.

Let’s have a look behind common skincare myths you should stop believing:

Drinking water keeps your skin hydrated

There is no evidence that drinking more or less water is helpful or harmful to your skin.

While drinking more water can be beneficial for other health conditions, water does not automatically get absorbed by your skin when you drink it.

It hydrates our cells as it is absorbed by the bloodstream and filtered by the kidneys, which does help hydrate our bodies overall.

The best way to keep your skin hydrated is to avoid dry air (or use a humidifier), use a gentle cleanser, and use a moisturizer daily or ingredients that help keep moisture locked in your skin barrier, like hyaluronic acid

Not washing your face causes acne

Hygiene doesn't play a role in the development of acne.

Acne involves oil production, bacteria, clogged pores, and inflammation, with hormones and stress playing a significant role and diet for some people.

Not washing your face doesn't help your situation but it certainly doesn't cause acne.

You Don’t Need Sunscreen If It’s Not Sunny Outside

While we know that SPF isn’t only a necessity for long days hanging out in the sun, it turns out that broad-spectrum SPF is even necessary when the skies are gray.

You can get burned even on cloudy days. Spending time out in the suntans protection can lead to damage over time and can show up down the road as visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dark spots.

So yes, you need to wear sunscreen year-round no matter your skin tone.

You Don’t Need Moisturizer If You Have Oily Skin

No matter what your skin type—oily and acne-prone or dry and dehydrated—you need to be using some kind of moisturizer to keep your skin balanced and nourished.

The differences lie in the type and amount of moisturizer your skin needs.

While oily skin requires the least amount of moisture, a moisturizer is still vital for nourishing and hydrating the skin.

There’s No Such Thing as Over-Exfoliating

Yes, exfoliating does have its benefits, including helping to slough away dead skin cells—which could be responsible for your dull-looking complexion—that have built up on your skin’s surface over time.

But you can overdo it and irritate your skin. The answer to how many times a week you should exfoliate varies from person to person.

Some can handle daily exfoliation, while others may only need to do it once or twice a week.
