Proper Mask Wearing 

Your mask straps should be snug, not too tight or loose, to lessen skin friction and pore blockage.

Health care workers and frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic have found that this helps save their skin, only remove your mask when it is safe to do so, and after washing your hands (always wash your hands).  Remove your masks outdoors while practicing safe social distancing protocols, maintaining at least six feet away from other people. Inside your car when you are alone. 

Healthy Balance Diet and Exercise 

Leafy green vegetables, berries are all beneficial for acne skin. Most importantly keeping an active lifestyle. Sweating can help lessen breakouts by flushing out clogged pores. When you sweat, your pores open up, dirt, oil, and congestion are easily washed away post-workout. Sweating also detoxifies the body, helping you to feel more charged and energized.
