When talking and breathing with a mask in place, there is a good amount of humidity that builds up between your mouth and the mask.
The heat and humidity concentrated around the mouth can alter the pH of your skin and make you more prone to multiple issues.
While face masks are the new ‘normal’ using serums can help as they are lightweight and non-greasy. Face oils can be helpful if dry patches are persistent. Non-alcohol based toners can help soothe the skin, especially ones containing rose water.
Those who must wear masks for longer stretches of time or in hot humid conditions are particularly prone to maskne. Those with sensitive skin or rosacea prone skin are particularly susceptible.
