    Published on July 23, 2021

    Mumbai: Wearing a mask is mandatory nowadays, but this is obviously causing several skin issues as well. When you wear a mask it generally creates a hot and moist environment between your face and mask which provides an environment for the bacteria and germs to grow more. These bacteria make the skin itchy and acne-rashes prone.

    TO PREVENT SKIN PROBLEMS: ·       Make sure to clean and moisturize your skin properly with a water-based moisturizer as they are light and suitable for humid weather.·       You can also apply an antibacterial or anti-inflammatory cream for extra protection after moisturizing the face. This is effective in avoiding any chances for rashes and acne to occur. ·     

     Once you have removed the mask, wash your hands and then cleanse the face to remove the bacteria.·       Final step is to moisturize your face again after washing it properly irrespective of your skin type otherwise the skin will dry up and cause irritation and skin problems. 

    HOW TO CURE SKIN ISSUES CAUSED BY A MASK:·       Take care of your skin and if the skin condition worsens, visit a dermatologist for expert help.·       Apply anti-inflammatory cream with proper consultation on the affected areas. ·       The most important thing is do not pick your acne as it worsens its condition.
