How to fight ‘maskne’ As more places are requiring face masks/coverings to be worn in public in order to fight the spread of COVID-19, individuals with sensitive skin are wondering how you fight what is under the mask - skin irritation and acne.  The reason this happens is because masks cause heat, friction and occlusion on the skin and when combined with a moist environment from breathing, talking or sweating, pores get clogged and spots appear.  How to prevent this...
