How to Prevent Face Mask Acne...Maskne

Mask'ne! We now have something else to take care of...but seriously, face mask acne is real - particularly for anyone who is physically active while having to wear a face mask. 
Breathing into a face mask creates a hot and moist environment that leads to a build-up of sweat, oil, and bacteria, which is the perfect setting for acne to develop. 

I am a mom to teens who play soccer (socially distanced), and face mask acne has become a real problem. I set out to fix that.

Tea Tree Oil is the go-to botanical for treating the bacteria that causes acne; it's powerful enough to create an effective barrier yet gentle enough not to irritate the skin. 

Lavender helps to reduce redness and calm angry skin. Oh, and they both smell pretty fab too. Essential oils are extremely potent and should be handled with respect, it is best to use a formula that has been measured to be safe on the skin.
