How to Prevent Maskne

Bacteria from our mouths and sweat from the airless covering of the mask creates a problem for the lower half of our faces, especially if you're acne prone. Here are a few ways to protect your skin from breakouts if you wear a mask for many hours, every day. 

1. Toss the current mask half-way through your day. 

2. Floss your teeth and swish with antibacterial mouthwash

3. Wipe the area with water or a toner. Carry a small amount of cleanser with you.

4. Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly on your face where the mask covers as a skin barrier.
