Skip The Maskne, Not The Mask

Nov 17, 2020

Maskne (or Mask Acne), everyone’s talking about it! Caused by the mechanical friction of fabric constantly rubbing against the skin.  The result being? Skin that can become irritated and inflamed, clogging the pores and causing breakouts to develop.

For anyone struggling, look no further, for we have all the answers right here! In the name of clearer skin, we share our top tips and tricks for both preventing Maskne and treating it…

How to avoid Maskne?

  1. Wash your mask and wash it frequently!
  2. Less is more! – The best way forward is to streamline your skincare routine. Stick to using fewer and more gentler products, following our 3 essential steps of cleansing, toning and moisturizing daily!
  3. Break up with make-up (at least temporarily) – So as to avoid congested pores! For those who absolutely can’t break the habit, we suggest a more lightweight formulation. Try using our Dr. Hauschka Tinted Day Cream instead, evening out any imperfections whilst creating a subtle sun-kissed glow.
