Fighting “Maskne” On The Front Lines

Fighting "Maskne" On The Front Lines

Naturopathy Canonsburg PA Maskne

Essential health workers are reporting skin irritations caused by the increased use of the N95 mask. More than a third of these workers are experiencing acne and itchy facial rashes now referred to as "maskne."

To calm redness and soothe rashes, try using Calendula Cream. Calendula is made from the petals of the common garden marigold. These golden petals are full of flavonoids and other natural substances that help restore the skin barrier.

I recommend Boiron's high-quality Calendula Cream to protect skin and gently soothe cuts, skin irritations, and rashes. I use it in my practice for mask acne, razor burns, insect bites, and to help manage skin symptoms in patients receiving radiation therapy.
