A new phenomenon reflecting the current global pandemic, ‘maskne’ refers to acne which irritatingly appears after wearing a face mask.

As Founder of Skin Alchemists, Theresa Edward explains, “Mask acne is predominantly caused by either dirty masks, or from the skin being irritated by the material so it produces extra sebum.”

Theresa continues, “We can help our skin cope by not using harsh or drying products which can further over stimulate and / or irritate the skin and in turn then produce acne.”
