Let’s Talk “Maskne”

Who can relate? You work all day wearing a N95 only to end your shift and remove your mask to find the dreaded “maskne” —the under mask breakout that reminds you of being a teenager again. Any tips or tricks to avoid “maskne”? What’s your skin regiment to help? Are you going make-up free under your mask? What products do your recommend? Help a fellow nurse out and share how to deal with angry mask skin! Add your comments below and check back to see recommendations from your fellow nurses.


  1. My friend who is an Aesthetician recommended the use of a benzoyl peroxide mask followed by the use of a salicylic acid toner every night. After just a week the maskne was gone and has stayed away! Highly recommended regimen. Whatever lines you prefer as long as they contain these ingredients to deep cleanse the skin 🙂
