Maskne is a combination of the words “Mask” and “Acne”. This is a new skin breakout by COVID-19.
Why does Maskne occur on your skin? One of the main reasons is the friction between face and mask and eventually, it leads your skin to be irritated and stressed out. If you reuse a dirty mask for several days, your skin can get breakouts by the contaminated mask. As well, the damp and hot environment under the mask creates a perfect place for multiplying bacteria, causing Maskne.
How to prevent MASKNE

My Recommendation: NEOGEN Dermalogy A-Clear Soothing Foam Cleanser
