For anyone who has ever asked themselves, how to prevent maskne, the answer is simple. A simple process that is effective in preventing the transmission of the MRSA virus to those around us. Studies show that simply wearing face masks and other preventative measures can help to slow down the spread of the disease and keep us all, and especially those around us, safer. In this particular article I’ll discuss what will do for our skin to better adapt to this new norm that for some of us comes as quite welcome news. The focus of this particular article is to discuss ways to keep our skin healthy, so that we can better cope with the conditions our immune system has to deal with.

Important Steps That Can Save Your Skin!

How to prevent maskne starts by understanding how it works. The mask, or masking tape, as it is more commonly known is a very effective barrier, or filter, that traps air borne pathogens (bacteria and viruses) and other irritants. The purpose of the mask is to prevent any pathogen from being able to come into contact with the surface of our skin. The problem arises when we then put on a face mask and expose the mask to air, and we do not remove it until we are ready to do so.

So how to prevent maskne can be summed up in 3 steps, we need to first stop masking ourselves, protect our skin, then protect our skin by removing the mask when we are ready to face the world. In conclusion, I suggest that you take each of these steps one at a time and try to incorporate them into your daily life. By doing this, you will find that you are able to prevent any contaminates that could get into your skin.
