How To Treat Maskne Holistically
There are a few reasons why this occurs, the most common is ‘acne mechanica,’ the result of friction from the mask rubbing against the skin causing irritation. This friction can cause inflammation and interrupt regular cellular turnover and create clogged pores and breakouts. Here are a few of our recommendations to keep maskne at bay.
Daily facial dry brushing: Try adding our Daily Glow Facial Dry Brush to your routine. Dry brushing stimulates gentle exfoliation and cellular turnover to help avoid maskne and keep pores healthy!
Oil Cleansing: Try adding our Moisturizing Oil Cleanser + Makeup Remover to your skincare routine. If you aren’t familiar with oil cleansing it can seem counterintuitive but it works! Oil cleansing helps to gently cleanse the skin, clear away blackheads and protect the skin’s barrier. This gentle approach is great for calming irritated skin and removing dirt and debris.
Clay masking: When your skin is feeling clogged and irritated, try including a calming clay mask 1-2x per week to help. The clay acts as a magnet and deep cleans pores, reducing redness and encouraging brighter, more radiant skin. With Kaolin Clay, Bentonite Clay and Canadian seaweed, our Detoxifying + Clarifying Clay Mask formula works well mixed with water, yogurt, raw honey or whatever you have on hand. For a gentle summer exfoliating mask I love smashing a few fresh strawberries into the mask.
One of the best ways to prevent maskne is to make sure you're wearing the right type of face mask. Try to choose light-weight, natural fibre fabric masks like cotton, linen or bamboo. These fabric masks are gentle on the skin, create less friction and allow airflow. Avoid synthetic fabrics that often irritate the skin and trap oil and condensation like polyester and rayon.
Make sure to wash and rotate your masks daily to avoid them getting uncomfortable or sweaty and reduce breakouts. Make sure to use a sensitive, fragrance-free detergent to avoid and build up in the masks, these fragrances often cause skin irritation.
If you’re in a pinch add a spritz of our Invigorating + Balancing Toner to help refresh your mask. The essential oils like clary sage and geranium help to kill bacteria and the rose and lavender hydrosols naturally cool and calm the skin.
