EVER Skincare Solutions: "Maskne" - It's a Real Skincare Problem!

Y'all, let's have some real talk about breakouts and "MASKNE"!

I have heard from friends and beauty bloggers in recent weeks that they're experiencing more breakouts than usual on and around the chin and jawline or around the mouth, which just isn't normal.

After hearing from an esthetician, she said that the culprit is likely THE MASK doing the dirty work on everyone's skin!

One tip she shared was that when you take off your mask, especially if it is fabric, leave it on your dashboard and let the sun kill off some of the germs - but also wash it frequently.

To treat your skin, start by washing it twice a day (morning and evening) with a gentle clarifying cleanser, like Rebalance, and treating the affected areas with a lightweight moisturizer with SPF, like Daylight, and Remedy spot treatment. Use micellar water, like Beauty Water, to clean off any sweat throughout the day.

For one of my friends, this was a system that worked well for her... but it was the mask causing issues and it IS a real thing!

Check out this article from the New York Times confirming this new skincare issue: https://www.nytimes.com/article/maskne-acne.html

I've created this quick and easy regimen for you to see what products our Ambassadors are using to fight "maskne" ('cause I'm still wearing the mask, too!) - and you can click this link to see the products I am using here: https://www.stelladot.com/c/03pt7 - (that, ironically, match up pretty well to what the dermatologist suggests in the NYT article).

I'd love to hear from you! Is anyone else finding their skin is changing from the mask-wearing?!
