What Can I Do About Maskne?

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold

With mask wearing still a part of everyday life, skin irritation and blemishes have become a daily frustration for many. I have a few recommendations that could help alleviate some of the effects of long term mask wearing.


Maskne is caused by sweat and bacteria on the skin, moisture trapped inside the mask and the irritation from the cloth rubbing on the skin.

Thorough cleansing is key to minimizing the blemishes caused by mask wearing both as soon as possible after removing your mask for the day but also before putting on your mask to minimize the dirt and bacteria that is between your skin and mask

Dr Belmeur Amino Clear Bubble Foaming Cleanser has salicylic acid and amino-acid-based ingredients to help treat blemishes by unclogging pores and clearing away dead skin cells. If you want to avoid overuse of anti-acne ingredients, I recommend using this cleanser when you remove your mask at the end of the day and choosing an alternate cleanser for your morning cleanse.

My top picks for everyday cleansers are the belif Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser and the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser which both moisturize while cleansing.  When you just need a light refresh in the morning or the middle of the day, Anew Hydra Fusion Cleansing Micellar Water to gently lift dirt and oil with no need to rinse.


Next you’ll want to address any blemishes that you currently have.  Dr Belmeur Clarifying Spot Healing Patches are the perfect solution for healing blemishes and protecting them from further irritation while they heal. Made with calming tea tree leaf oil and a clear plaster band the patches protect skin from dirt and contaminants and stay in place under your mask. 
 You’ll also want to moisturize and soothe irritation.  Dr Belmeur Advanced Cica Recovery Cream will protect and heal the skin and is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. It features the ingredient Cica which is known to relieve irritated skin, strengthen the skin barrier and gently moisturize.

For added moisture or to combat redness follow your Cica Recovery Cream with Green Goddess Facial Oil in the evening. Green Goddess Facial Oil soothes skin with 100 mg of CBD. This THC-free facial oil also contains hemp seed oil and turmeric, botanicals that help naturally reduce redness and irritation, and sugarcane-derived squalane oil, which replenishes skin’s moisture and leaves it feeling smooth.

Don’t forget the lips! On top of all of the effects of mask wearing on your skin it can also be dehydrating for your lips. My favorite picks for lips are the Moisture Thearapy Intensive Moisturizing Lip Treatment, made with hydraboost technology to instantly moisturize and soften lips, and Dew Kiss Lip Dew, a pretty pink balm that moisturizes your pout with a soft, dewy finish.

Need a bit more nourishing? Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Treatment, nourishes lips with vitamins C and E for a smooth finish and leaves them feeling healthy.
