Maskne… It’s a thing now.  With the addition of our newest fashion accessories has also brought an addition of some unwanted skin irregularities.  Maskne. It’s frustrating and annoying, but… we have some solutions to help you win the battle over this new not so fun skin issue. Read below to find out our 5 recommendations for fighting maskne.

Ditch the Makeup

We all feel better with a little makeup on, but seriously- ditch it!  While wearing a mask, the moisture + friction + makeup is a recipe for disaster.  Plus, you can’t see the lower half of your face.  You could always apply a little makeup or concealer on the upper part of your face, and throw on a little mascara to help. We have great options for a tinted SPF from ZO® Skin Health and Skin Ceuticals to give you a little coverage, while protecting your skin.

Diamond Glow

You’ve heard us talk about the Diamond Glow Facial, a lot!  It is our most popular monthly facial.  With the options of 5 different infusion serums to customize the treatment to each persons skin, our Estheticians, Heather and Natalie will pick the perfect serum for you.

The Pore Clarifying pro-infusion serum is perfect for treating breakouts and congestion.  In the case that you’re suffering from the dreaded maskne and dry flaky skin due to the weather, a hybrid treatment with the pore clarifying and ultra hydrating serums will leave your skin feeling and looking amazing.

Change Your Mask

Sounds like a no brainer, but seriously, change it!  Make sure you’re not wearing your masks multiple times.  If you’re wearing a disposable mask, throw it away! If you’re wearing a cloth reusable mask, make sure you’re washing them regularly with a gentle detergent and no fabric softener.  The build up of bacteria in the masks can lead to some pretty bad skin conditions.  If you are in the position of wearing a mask all day and have the option, change to a new one whenever you can! A fresh mask is always a good idea.  Keep your oral hygiene good and try a bacteria killing mouthwash whenever you can.

Professional Products

If you’re noticing a big change in your skin with wearing the mask, it may be time to switch your skin care products.  We have several options of professional products to target acne, congestion and dryness.  Our licensed estheticians, Natalie and Heather always offer complimentary skin analysis consultations.  They will chat with you about which products you’re currently using, examine your skin and give recommendations.  It could be as easy as changing your cleanser and moisturizer, or you may need a complete product over haul.

Forever Clear BBL

For drastic cases of acne, Forever Clear BBL is always a hit.  This medical skin care treatment uses light energy to heat and destroy the p acne bacteria, red acne marks, and prevent the formation of new breakouts.  Treatment times are quick and 4 treatments are recommended over 2 months.  These treatments are very comfortable, and have no downtime, just a little redness. Results are often seen after just one treatment with the final result seen up to 3 months after.

Say Goodbye to Maskne

It doesn’t seem that the masks will be going away anytime soon, but your maskne can.  Doing a combination of the tips listed above can help rid your skin of the unwanted breakouts, help with your overall skin health and boost your confidence.  Contact our Kansas City MedSpa today to schedule your complimentary skin care consultation.


Dr. Chhatre is an amazing plastic surgeon in KC. He is very straightforward and extremely skilled. I considered my procedure for over a decade, and consulted with multiple area surgeons. I am so happy I chose to go with Dr. Chhatre. I had a very smooth surgery and recovery, and two years post-surgery, I’ve still had no complications and my results look amazing. If you are looking into abdominoplasty with muscle repair in the KC area, go to Summit Plastic Surgery and Medspa.

I can not say enough good things about Dr Chhatre, his nurses and staff. Over a span of about 20 years, Dr. Chhatre has done 3 surgeries for me and several sutures on my face from a serious car accident. He has ALWAYS been so pleasant and kind, understanding and listens to what you want and need. He has nurses and staff that have been with him for years which really says a lot. They are all so amazing. Cara in particular has been absolutely amazing this last go round. Dr. is so lucky to have them all and I’m very happy and thankful for them as well. Highly recommend this practice to everyone in need of any cosmetic or medical issues. ❤️

I am very pleased with Dr. Chhatre and his staff. His knowledge and expertise are priceless; he is honest and not just about consuming money - straight forward consults. I am beyond pleased with the progress of my procedure and the follow-up care received. The nursing staff are all very knowledgeable, which helps put you at ease. I would recommend Dr. Chhatre to anyone considering making a surgical choice - the level of knowledge he has is greatly appreciated. This was not a decision that I took lightly - I searched and considered for over 10 years, finally making my decision to trust my care to Dr. Chhatre, extremely grateful.
