What is "masсne" and how to deal with it?
Mascne is a new term formed by the combination of "mask" and "acne" - rashes that occur from frequent and prolonged mask wearing. The so-called "greenhouse effect" is created when you breathe in the mask for several hours. This creates a background which is a perfect habitat for pathogens of various skin diseases. All these unpleasant manifestations can be aggravated by the tissue friction on the face skin, which creates an increased irritation of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles.
So, a must do list of basic rules that will help you avoid "mascne":
▫️ The mask must be disposable (or freshly washed);
▫️ Better to avoid snug fit to the face;
▫️ Change the mask every 2 hours;
▫️ Simplify your daily skin care routine;
▫️ Wipe your face with a cotton pad moistened with chlorhexidine after using a mask. This solution does not dry the skin and has an antiseptic effect.
If the "mascne" still could not be avoided, then it should be treated the same way as the ordinary local rashes. Self-medication in this case is inappropriate, you must definitely consult a doctor and choose a comprehensive treatment for acne!
Unfortunately, the treatment of acne at home even using the pharmacy products rarely brings quick and high-quality results. Millions of teenage boys and girls face acne (pimples) problems to one degree or another. Sometimes this problem also occurs at a more mature age 35-40+.
In Kiev the medical aesthetic center SkinMedical applies the new Israeli technology of phototherapy called Inmode Lumecca (method of phototherapy with IPL rays) to treat acne and its consequences. It is the most effective acne treatment nowadays. The procedure is almost completely painless and safe. The laser beam is directed to the affected area of the dermis, killing pathogenic bacteria and stimulating the formation of new collagen fibers. The result of such treatment will be the normalization of blood circulation, restoration of metabolic processes in the skin, and the acquisition of a healthy appearance.
