Now that face masks are an everyday accessory, acne around the mouth has become increasingly common.
Wearing protective face masks and coverings has become the new norm to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, but with the new accessory comes a new skincare concern that’s been dubbed by the internet as “maskne” — acne breakouts around the mouth underneath the face mask.
Wearing a mask all day creates heat and humidity that, when mixed with the bacteria we breathe out in the mask, can easily result in clogged pores and acne.
One thing you can do is try to select a mask made from soft, breathable cotton so you won’t sweat as much underneath it. Or even splurge on a satin or silk one which won’t irritate the skin. Also consider the fit of your mask — the tighter it is, the more likely acne will occur.
Make sure to wash the masks after every single use. This way they won’t accumulate sweat, dirt and bacteria which could cause more breakouts. Also, thoroughly wash your face both before and after wearing a face covering. To ensure you don’t strip the skin, select cleansers made with gentle surfactants which protect your natural moisture barrier.
Omaha Face is here to help you with a skincare protocol that will help not only with this issue, but for your continued routine that promotes overall skin health. We encourage you to stop in or give us a call and we can help you tackle your current skincare needs!
WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE ARE OFFERING Morpheus8!
WHAT IS Morpheus8?
It is a skin treatment that combines radio frequency energy with micro needling to stimulate collagen and elastin production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, our natural building blocks will reorganize themselves to help tighten and brighten the skin.
Fractionated Radio Frequency energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles or acne scars and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
*Since the Morpheus uses radio frequency technology instead of laser, it is safe for all skin types and can be done in any season!
What makes ours different? We fully anesthetize the face so we target those deeper layers or “trouble spots” for more effective results. Call our office today for a complimentary consultation to see if it is right for you!
