Acne From Wearing A Surgical Mask

Recommended Posts

I started wearing a surgical mask at work (covers nose and mouth) and I always break out now.

I did a Google search that suggested I may have a skin allergy or irritant causing the acne but I think more likely it's just the humidity and trapped moisture or dirt that is causing it.

Does anyone have any suggestions about fixing the acne or preventing it?


I use the regimen and have recently started sleeping with a clay drying face mask that has helped a lot. I've finished two rounds of accutane that helped for several months until relapses. I use isotretinoin for some.severe breakouts.
