What is the maskné?

Maskné is the acne produced by the use of masks. The constant friction and pressure, which some types of masks produce, can irritate the delicate skin of the face and cause the appearance of the dreaded acne.

The acne is caused by the accumulation of sebum and dead skin in the hair follicles, and can take the form of blackheads, whiteheads, comedones, pimples, and rashes. This accumulation of sebum can cause an unwanted proliferation of the microbiota naturally present on the skin and lead to the hair follicle becoming infected.


How to prevent the maskné?

To prevent maskné, it is important to use the masks correctly. Whether they are disposable or reusable, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for use, touch them as little as possible and always with clean hands. Reusable masks must be washed properly and allowed to dry completely before using them again. We recommend the organic cotton masks that we have designed in Rewinder, they are extra soft, comfortable and available in various sizes and colors.

It is important to maintain correct facial hygiene, but it must also be taken into account that rubbing the face and washing excessively can worsen the maskné.

We recommend that you reduce the use of makeup and that when you use it, remove it gently and without rubbing. Very important, avoid using greasy cosmetics for proper skin hydration.

The acne can cause anguish in those who suffer from it, trying to relax and take time to breathe outdoors, it usually works in the relief of symptoms of overwhelm or stress.

We also recommend facial masks to combat the maskné:

  1. The Hydro Care facial mask that provides the skin of your face with extra hydration and freshness.
  2. The Detox Care facial mask, with its anti-pollution effect, purifies and vivifies the skin of your face.
  3. Kneipp’s Chill out Sheet Mask soothes and softens the skin in a relaxing care ritual.

Remember that any doubt that arises, you can always solve it by entering the official pages of the brands and asking.
