As we all slowly adapt to the new normal, wearing face masks has been our daily routine especially when we need to leave the house for work, for grocery shopping or for food takeaway. While we are very accustomed to wearing face masks on a daily basis, these face masks tend to create little problems to our skin such as “Mask Acne”.
What is “Mask Acne” and how it happened?
“Mask Acne” is an arising skin problem nowadays which is caused by prolonged wearing of face masks. So, let’s dive deeper to fully understand how this can happen to our skin.
Face masks, whether it is a disposable surgical mask or a washable cotton mask, all these masks are made out of thick layers with the purpose to protect oneself and prevent the spread of germs and bacteria.

When the face mask rubs against our skin, it creates heat and friction which slowly sheds off our skin’s protective barrier leaving our skin even more vulnerable to external contaminants. On the other hand, the Malaysian weather is always hot and humid throughout the year which will aggravate the mask acne even more! As we breathe, talk and sweat with our masks on, it will induce the occurrence of these pesky breakouts.
