There's no other way to put it, except that "maskne" stinks.
As if dealing with existing breakouts wasn't enough, experiencing a new and seemingly random crop of pesky pimples or skn irritation from your personal protection gear can be quite annoying.
Being your clear-skin expert, rest assured I'm here to help with our first Skin by Brownlee & Co. tool and a few tips!

TIP #1: BUY A REUSABLE MASK & KEEP IT CLEAN
The best face masks for acne are ones made from silk or cotton. Before wearing, wash them in a free and clear laundry detergent to avoid more irritation from fragrance and dyes. Remember to wash between uses, too!
TIP #2: REDUCE FRICTION WITH A BARRIER
Apply a thin layer of Vaseline jelly where your mask tends to rub to best help reduce friction, trap moisture and slow the growth of bacteria between frequent mask washes.
TIP #3: WASH YOUR FACE MORE REGULARLY
During this time when wearing face masks is important and required, practice extra cleanliness by washing the skin at least twice a day — plus after any type of workout.
TIP #4: SKIP OUT ON WEARING ANY MAKEUP
Wearing makeup under your mask is a no-no. #1, most makeup angers existing acne. #2, the space between your face and mask is a breeding ground for bacteria that can lead to new breakouts.
TIP #5: "ICE" AWAY INFLAMMATION
Icing your pimples is a good way to notice shrinkage faster. The all-new Skin by Brownlee & Co. Cyrotherapy Ball works as a zero-mess, stainless steel facial massager that takes the place of ice to calm inflammation and speed up your skin's recovery process. Pretty cool, huh?!
