Can Makeup, Lotions Or Sunscreen Make Maskne Worse?

You might assume that using makeup, lotions, or sunscreen under our masks can cause maskne to get out of control. That’s not always the case though.

Lotion, topical treatments, and sunscreen can help calm and balance our normal skin flora.

A layer of moisturizer (lighter if you are oily or acne-prone and thicker if you have sensitive or eczema-prone skin) or even a sunblock that contains zinc or titanium can help your skin by serving as a barrier against any friction or irritation that develops.

Keep in mind that thick layers of lotion or sunscreen on the face can aggravate breakouts with or without a mask, but occurs more easily when wearing one.

We can help you with your maskne problems. Give us a ring.
