These days, one of the leading skin concerns is the new category of acne caused by wearing face masks and coverings referred to as Maskne. But how to tell if there is something else going on with your skin? We consulted with our Founders & Top Skin Experts, Dr. Ava Shamban as well as Christine Nell, FNP & Karri Ann Khalil, FNP on how to determine the difference between Maskne and Rosacea.

MASKNE (mask-nee)
For Maskne, that acne caused by face masks and coverings is primarily pimple breakouts in the areas where the mask is touching such as the chin, cheeks and at times, the bridge of nose. It is predominately caused by the friction and pressure of the mask rubbing constantly against your skin along with long periods of time breathing into the mask that creates a humid environment which is a breeding ground for those breakouts.   

In order to prevent maskne (or heal it) there are several tips to share. First, wash your mask daily after each use. Then, address the breakouts by exfoliation and hydration. Yes! Proper hydration is essential to avoid a dry flaky mess on your skin. We suggest visiting monthly for the Infuser by Hydrafacial treatment and adding on the Extractor service for those pesky pimples or Reducer service for any large cysts.  Additionally, wear sunscreen daily applied all over your face and neck. 

ROSACEA (rose-say-za)
Over 16 million people suffer from rosacea and most do not even know much about it. Rosacea is a skin condition that gives the skin an appearance of a blush or burn. In the beginning, it can simply start as a flush, but can last for long periods of time. Over time, it can develop bumps under the skin. There can also be itching, burning sensation and exposed blood vessels. 

How to treat rosacea? First, it is essential that you are using the appropriate skin care products. We suggest scheduling your Face Assessment with our SKIN FIVE skin experts to receive a customized Beauty Prescription, our personalized skin care program designed just for you. Additionally, we suggest monthly skin appointments for Spotless by Laser Genesis, a micropulse laser treatment that can reduce the redness while tightening pores and stimulating collagen. Treatment and anti-aging all in one. Yes, please! Finally, wear a sunscreen daily. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends sunscreen for those who suffer from rosacea to help control flare-ups and keep skin safe from UV rays that can trigger it.

How to Mask: At the end of the day, be sure to cleanse your skin thoroughly before applying your facial mask. Prefer the morning to mask?  Be sure to sweep your face with the Instytutum Resurfacing Glow Toner prior to applying your facial mask. Find a cozy spot. Take a deep breath in & exhale. Put on some relaxing music or pick up a good book & RELAX. After 30 minutes, remove the facial mask then massage the remaining serum into your skin. Ahh! How beautiful do you look and feel?! We like to follow up with the Instytutum Anti-Wrinkle Brightening C-Serum daily to keep our skin glowing.To purchase the Instytutum products, visit our E-Shop.
