My daughter showed me yesterday that she had maskne. I told her to spray Wonder Spray on her face, and she said it was the greatest thing! It was gone this morning. Thanks for the mini-foggers. I have been putting them to good use while waiting for my larger foggers.

‘Maskne’: Why your face is breaking out under your mask and how to Wonder Spray can help relieve it

Breakouts that occur after wearing a mask have become so common that mask acne’s been dubbed “maskne” on social media.

Wearing these masks, combined with stress from the pandemic, is causing an increased moisture-rich environment for bacteria and organisms to proliferate, causing a breakdown of the skin and flaring of some of these conditions.

Nurses and other health care professionals on the front line of the battle against Covid-19 are hardest hit due to the seal needed from personal protective equipment in order to keep the virus at bay.

For non-front line workers, the wearing of a mask every day when attending work or conducting errands can cause skin irritations and blemishes much like acne. Wonder Spray with HOCL will help with the relief of these irritations and blemishes!

– Acne mechanica –

The technical term for maskne is “acne mechanica,” and is the result of the mechanical friction of a fabric against the skin. It’s not new — sports figures who wear helmets and chin guards are quite familiar with such breakouts.

We all have these tiny little hair follicles on our face, chest and back, and wearing any kind of a mask or protective equipment that’s creating friction and pressure can irritate the hair follicles and result in an acne flare. That is compounded by moisture trapped underneath the fabric, which gets worse with humidity, with heat and with exercise.

If you haven’t already experienced maskne, you very likely could as you spend more time outdoors this summer, due to the heat, humidity, sunscreen and facial products. And treatment is tricky, experts say. You can’t use powerful products like alpha hydroxy acids, chemical peels or Retin A to blast the acne because they will further damage the fragile skin barrier, making it more sensitive to the mask’s irritating effects.

If you do use those products, you may not have blemishes, but you may end up with patches of eczema, dry patches, stinging, burning, inflammation, all signs of an impaired skin barrier.
