MASKNE: Which skincare routine works on breakouts from wearing a mask?

MASKNE: Which skincare routine works on breakouts from wearing a mask?

Through these trial times of Covid-19, wearing a face mask is one of the many beautiful demonstrations of community and collective efforts. After all, we wear our masks in order to protect others, not just ourselves.

But with a new lifestyle, comes new skin challenges. And the amount of questions we here at Decléor get asked about “maskne”, is truly off the charts. Literally. And we’re not the only ones.

Google search for the phrase “maskne” has increased by 811% these past months and keeps rising. Even the hashtag #Maskne is reaching 100,000 posts on Instagram as we write this.

Maskne is a play on the two words ‘mask’ and ‘acne’ and has been coined as many now experience an increase in oil, breakouts and clogged pores after wearing facial masks. Especially those with a skin type which is already prone to impurities. For some it may be due to heat and humidity being trapped beneath the mask. While for others the physical friction from the mask can aggravate existing breakouts. This can cause the skin to produce more sebum which ultimately can lead to a type of rash.

Adding this to the general stress of our world's current situation, we’re not surprised that so many of you want to know how to prevent maskne.

So we’ve gathered our best heads here at Decléor, from scientists to skin therapists and aromatherapists, to give you our 4 tips to avoid maskne and adopt a maskne routine.

#1: DO THE DOUBLE CLEANSE

By using the soft double cleansing routine you will not only remove impurities but thoroughly prepare your skin for the protective ingredients from your essence, serum and cream. Which is much needed right now.
The Rosemary Officinalis Black Clay Cleansing Gel has a texture which transforms into a soft foam when mixed with water to remove impurities in a gentle yet effective way. A perfect cleanser for oily skin and the double cleanse routine. Seal the double cleanse with the Rosemary Officinalis Active Essence to further reduceinflammatory lesions by -42%*. This thanks to the professional formulation of the Rosemary Officinalis skincare line, with just the right amount of Salicylic Acid; effective enough to genuinely reduce impurities and balanced enough to suit every skin type.

#2: PROTECT AND REINFORCE

Your skin’s barrier is your best ally in the protection of the layers of the skin. However, this barrier is put to a hard test on a daily basis because of external aggressions. Here at Decléor we recommend using the Antidote serum every morning. Powered by Natural-origin Hyaluronic Acid this serum will reinforce your skin and protect it against the external aggressions which can be responsible for the imperfections you may experience.


#3: NOT TOO SHINY, NOT TOO MATT

When you have an oily to combination skin type you might feel the need to use only mattifying creams. Which is completely understandable; we know how it feels when excess shine is all you can see. But without the proper type of moisture that an oily skin still needs, it will ultimately produce more oil. By using the Rosemary Officinalis White Clay Daily Care your skin will receive the right amount of moisture, while leaving the areas that would normally be too shiny mattified. It’s basically the best of both worlds when it comes to hydration of an oily to combination skin.

But remember, a diagnosis with an expert assures the correct cream for you and your skin, so make sure to book an appointment with a Decléor expert near you.

#4: TLC SKINCARE FOR MASKNE

These are stressful times, and the maskne is not making it any easier. You and your skin deserves some TLC and dedicated time for nurture and care. Set aside 10 minutes – once or twice a week – to apply the Rosemary Officinalis Black Clay Mask. To reduce excess of sebum and purify the skin. Leaving it clean, yet sufficiently moisturized.

With a 98% natural-origin formula, of Rosemary Essential Oil with natural-origin Salicylic Acid & Black Clay, you can expect blackheads to be reduced by up to -28%** and breakouts by up to -40%**.

Remember: Not all imperfections underneath the mask are maskne

Hopefully these tips will help you you know what to do against maskne. To experience a skin with less impurities and better balance while wearing the important Covid-19 mask.
And remember, if your skin is prone to impurities, it can be completely normal to experience maskne. But if your skin condition isn’t normally oily or with impurities, you might be experiencing a reaction to the mask which is not necessarily maskne.

According to the Journal of the American Acamedy of Dermatology, maskne is likely due to follicular occlusion directly related to mechanical stress (friction), and microbiome dysbiosis from heat, pH and moisture from biofluids. Both of which are affected by increased duration of wearing masks.


So please, keep wearing your mask when needed and required. And we here at Decléor will continue to take care of your skin through our skincare tips, products and skin experts in our stores, pharmacy, institutes and spas.
