As we continue to wear face masks for our safety against different strains of viruses, acne mechanica or more commonly known as "maskne" is also bound to recur.
"Masks impose heat, friction and occlusion on the skin and when combined with a moist environment from breathing, talking or sweating, this is a recipe for breakouts,”
Harry Dao, MD, FAAD, a dermatologist for Loma Linda University Health explains.
