What is “Maskne”?

The term Maskne originated in this era due to the disclosure of COVID- 19 protection SOP’s, and the term describes the acne caused by irritation from fabric or surgical masks. Maskne usually appears in smaller whiteheads where the mask fabric rubs against the skin around the mouth, bridge of nose, cheeks, and jawline. Stress is the critical factor for developing deeper irritated pimples produced by irritation of the top skin layer. Masks, along with the heat and humidity clog pores with dirt, sebum, and bacteria.
