Maskne, The Struggle is Real

Sep 21st, 2020 In: Skin Care, General, Did You Know?

The new normal requires us to wear masks daily. We are covering up our mouths and noses and some of us are developing a new problem - maskne, or mask related acne. When you breath or talk your mask traps in a lot of hot air creating a warm, humid environment that is ideal for yeast and bacteria to grow. These bacteria imbalances and the friction from wearing masks can cause acne breakouts.

Some ways to prevent this is wearing 100% cotton masks, changing your mask frequently especially after perspiring, and washing masks with fragrance free detergents. Use only lightweight lotion or sunscreen and skip the makeup. If you don’t want to skip the makeup make sure it is lightweight and nonocclusive.

Cleansing your face regularly will also help. Cleanse right before putting on your mask and right after taking it off for the day. For long term prevention of breakouts a consistent acne regimen is important. Dr. Anne White can help you develop a custom tailored routine for the prevention of breakouts and to reduce acne scars. Call today to schedule a consultation for the best treatment options available for you.

Dear Dr. Anne,

My friends all rave about Botox® and how great it is for women like myself. I have never had a cosmetic injection or procedure before. I would love for you to tell me a little bit more about Botox®  ... I think it's time I gave it a try.

Botox® would likely be my first choice for treating your lines.

Dr. Anne White Talks Winter Skin Care 2015

Winter Skin Care

The dry air of winter, both indoor and outside, can make it difficult to keep skin from getting dry, chapped, and itchy. Harsh wind, low humidity, and indoor heating are common factors that sap moisture from the skin. This time of year, it’s especially important to protect your skin, keeping it healthy, moisturized, and youthful. The following tips will help.

Skin is healthier when all of the natural oils are not stripped by too aggressive or too frequent bathing regimens. Below are some suggestions to treat your skin kindly while at the same time effectively... Read more
