Wearing masks has become less of a hassle. We’re used to it by now — a wardrobe staple. But the struggle with skin breakouts and flare-ups remains real. According to Dr. Joanne Bustamante-Gonzalez, MD, FPDS, “Maskne is the acne on the area of the face that the mask covers: the cosmetic casualty of protecting ourselves and others during this pandemic. This irritation is caused by the constant friction of fabric against the skin.”
Maskne can be treated and prevented. Derma 360 lets us in on how to deal with these unsightly bumps. Here are some essentials to add to your skincare routine, as well as the most effective treatments, so you’ll be ready to face 2021, safe and maskne-free.
Derma 360’s Gentle Skin Cleanser may be used by all skin types, especially those with dry, sensitive skin or those who are using strong anti-acne medications. Their Gentle Cleanser leaves the skin feeling clean, with no feeling of tightness or dryness
The Acne Defense Daily Maintenance Toner has all your daily needs in one product. It is made with ingredients that help your skin defend pimple-causing bacteria, lighten dark spots, and manage all production. It also refines and deeply cleanses the pores.
3. Exfoliating Treatment
One of Derma 360’s best-selling products, the Skin Revealing Treatment Lotion combines two types of Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Mandelic and Malic Acid, to accelerate the turn over of the skin and also to encourage healthier and fresh-looking skin.

The BC Lotion is an effective treatment without excessively drying the skin. It combines two acne-fighting ingredients, 5% benzoyl peroxide and 2% erythromycin, to dry up those flare ups. This treatment also blends into the skin, so you won’t need to worry about any residue.
