Dr. Halawi who is a certified medical and aesthetic dermatologist at Obagi MediSpa in The Dubai Mall has over 6 years’ experience in treating skin conditions (melasma, acne, eczema, psoriasis), injectables (botox, fillers, mesotherapy, sclerotherapy), and skin rejuvenation (microneedling, radiofrequency, chemical peels, and lasers). Here he discusses one of the largest issues many are facing today.
Several patients have been suffering from acne in the lower third of the face over the past few weeks with face masks being the new normal. These masks rub against the skin around the mouth and occlude the pores with oil, sweat, and dirt thereby causing breakouts. As more people start to head back to the office, here are a few tips to reduce mask-related acne, or mask-ne:
5. Give your face a short break from the mask every few hours when it is safe to do so (if you’re alone in your office or car for example). Wash your hands before you take off the mask and before you put it back on.
6. Wash your cloth mask after each use. Avoid masks made from nylon, polyester, and other synthetic fabrics as can contribute to breakouts.
