What is maskne?

Combat blemishes easily at home with the right skincare regime

There’s no doubting the importance of wearing a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time doing so has left many of us around the world second-guessing our skin. This is due to the rising prevalence of maskne: mask-induced acne. Maskne, or mascne as it’s also known, is caused by excessive heat, friction and/or pressure to the areas of your face that come into contact with your mask, and subsequently causing blemishes. 

Eucerin’s DERMOPURE range is proven to reduce blemishes by 64%*, using a skincare regime including Eucerin DERMOPURE Cleansing Gel, DERMOPURE Mattifying Fluid, and DERMOPURE Skin Renewal Treatment.
