Now that many of us are wearing face masks regularly, we’re having to deal with a dreaded side effect: “maskne.” It’s the term for mask-related breakouts and blemishes that crop up on our faces and it can be tricky to get rid of if you’re constantly wearing a mask. But reality TV skincare expertSandra Lee- you know her as Dr. Pimple Popper - has a hack to keep maskne away.
The dermatologist shares her tip in aTikTokvideo and it’s all about salicylic acid. She uses a body spray that contains the skin-calming ingredient and suggests you spray a little on the inside of your face mask, then fan it a little to dry it.
“Salicylic acid cleans out the oil and debris within your pores preventing acne,” she explains. And according toWebMD, the ingredient works by increasing the amount of moisture in the skin and making it easier to shed skin cells. And if there’s anyone who knows how to get rid of acne, it’s Dr. Pimple Popper.
