#MASKNE: HOW TO FIGHT AGAINST PIMPLES CAUSED BY WEARING A MASK?

Depuis quelques mois, le port prolongé du masque de protection contre la COVID-19 fait fleurir les boutons sur le bas du visage (nez, joues, menton). Les peaux grasses à tendance acnéique sont les plus touchées et observent une augmentation de l’acné en fréquence et en intensité sur le bas du visage. Mais pas seulement ! Nous sommes tous plus ou moins concernés, même celles et ceux qui n’avaient jamais eu d’acné auparavant. Ce phénomène cutané, le mascné ou maskné (contraction de masque et acné) est un effet secondaire dont on se serait bien passés. Derrière les masques, une véritable guerre des boutons est en train d’être menée…

Why does the mask give you pimples?
The mask forms an occlusive barrier on the skin that prevents the passage of viruses, but also impedes air circulation. This small piece of fabric increases local heat and creates a warm, moist environment that bacteria love. In addition to this, the rubbing of the mask on the skin attacks the skin barrier.
Aggressed, irritated, suffocated, our skin capitulates. Bacteria proliferate, perspiration and sebum are not evacuated: pimples and blackheads settle in and multiply.

What products should I use to control #maskne?

2. In the evening, on clean skin, the application of a moisturizing and anti-blemish cream is essential to maintain your skin and limit the appearance of pimples.
