Video: How to prevent face mask skin problems



These tips keep your skin looking it’s best even when wearing masks every day.

Wearing a mask can be hard on your skin.

This video provides 7 tips that help prevent skin problems when wearing a mask, including:

  1. Comfortable fabric. Choose a mask made from a soft, breathable fabric like cotton.
  2. Find a good fit. Your mask can irritate your skin if it’s too tight or slides around.
  3. Wash after wear. Cloth masks should be washed after each use.
  4. Keep your face clean. Use a mild cleanser appropriate for your skin type.
  5. Moisturize. Masks can dry out your skin so apply lotion daily.
  6. Limit makeup. Wearing makeup under a mask can clog pores and lead to breakouts.
  7. Pick the right products. Masks can increase skin sensitivity, causing some products to irritate skin.
