wearing masksSome people wearing masks for extended periods of time, a form of acne is caused by the friction and pressure of the mask on the skin.  This has become an unwanted problem.  It is called Maskne.

You shouldn’t have to suffer with:

  • Pimples
  • Whiteheads
  • Spots and bumps
  • Blackheads
  • Redness
  • Skin rash

If you are suffering with skin problems caused by wearing a mask you may have spent hours researching solutions and tried different products in the hope of finding something that would improve your skin.

You may have felt embarrassed because of your skin condition and it may have affected your self-esteem and quality of life.

There is hope for Maskne.

The scientific name for Maskne is Acne Mechanica. It’s well known to people in professions that require wearing a mask. Combined with the friction and pressure of the mask, sweat and oil trapped under the mask can clog pores and facilitate the growth of bacteria, leading to blackheads, whiteheads, or pimples on the areas of the face covered by a mask (chin, nose, checks, and around the mouth.)

More and more people are now finding they have Maskne.

What most people don’t know about acne?
Inflammation is an underlying cause of acne

Inflammation is at the core of most health issues. Unresolved, chronic inflammation is a feature of a wide range of health conditions, particularly skin conditions, including acne and Maskne.

Acute inflammation is a necessary, protective response of the body to adverse stimuli, like irritants, or damaged cells due to injury. Acute inflammation lessens when the stimulus is removed. In contrast, chronic inflammation is an ongoing response to stimuli that doesn’t end and the longer it continues the more it causes cellular damage.

The secret to handling skin conditions is to address the chronic inflammation of the body at the cellular level.

Skin conditions need to be addressed from the inside as that’s where the chronic inflammation is happening.
