Acne formed from wearing masks has a direct connection with an increase in the temperature of the skin.

Masks trap warm, exhaled air between the skin and the mask, thus acting as an insulator. Our breath adds moisture and humidity to the warmth. This is the perfect breeding ground for microbes to live and thrive, causing bacterial and yeast infections.
