Can this year get even worse? “Yes,” say online searches
For many people, acne is an issue dealt with during a few years as teenagers, but those with sensitive skin know very well that acne-free skin can be elusive.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many countries and states have passed laws mandating the use of face masks in most public places. As a result, countless people around the world quickly started experiencing blemishes, inflammation, and clogged pores. As they rushed to social media and search engines to find solutions to their conditions, “Maskne” soon became the rising star of the most searched beauty terms, going quickly from nothing to thousands.
Acne typically occurs when skin cell turnover does not occur the way they should, and dead cells end up obstructing pores, creating the right conditions for acne bacteria to thrive and proliferate, ultimately leading to skin inflammation. The hot and humid environment behind face masks creates an even more ideal climate for these bacteria to grow. Also, the constant rubbing of masks against the skin further contributes to weakening its natural barrier, making the skin more prone to irritation and inflammation.
