What is Maskné and how to avoid it?
Apparently, the use of a mask is here to stay, at least for now, for a long time. For this reason, if you see that the use of a mask is irritating your skin or causing some type of allergy, apart from consulting your doctor or dermatologist, you may be suffering from what is called Maskné. What is maskne? Maskné is acne produced by the use of masks. The constant friction and pressure produced by some types of masks can irritate the delicate skin of the face and cause the appearance of the dreaded acne. Acne is caused by a buildup of sebum and dead skin in hair follicles, and can take the form of blackheads, whiteheads, comedones, pimples, and rashes. This accumulation of sebum can cause an unwanted proliferation of the microbiota naturally present in the skin and lead to the hair follicle becoming infected. How to prevent maskne? To prevent maskné, it is important to wear masks correctly. Whether they are disposable or reusable, you must follow the manufacturer's recommendations for use, touch them as little as possible and always with clean hands. Reusable masks must be washed properly and allowed to dry completely before reuse. We recommend the masks that we have designed at Rewinder , made of organic cotton, they are extra soft, comfortable and available in various sizes and colours. It is important to maintain proper facial hygiene, but also keep in mind that excessive rubbing and washing can make maskné worse. We recommend you reduce the use of makeup and that when you use it, remove it gently and without rubbing. Very important, avoid using greasy cosmetics for the correct hydration of the skin. Acne can cause anguish in those who suffer from it, try to relax and take time to breathe in the fresh air, it usually works in relieving symptoms of overwhelm or stress.
