Journey Medical Corp Announces New Journey with the Experts Video Featuring Diane Berson, MD
Dr. Berson discusses "maskne" (mask plus acne), a skin condition affecting more and more people daily in the United States
Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting up to 50 million Americans annually. While acne usually begins in puberty and affects many adolescents and young adults, it can occur at any stage of life and may continue into one's 30s and 40s.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic may be making acne problems worse, as friction caused by masks may exacerbate skin irritation and become what is now known as "maskne".
The American Academy of Dermatology explains that while masks play a vital role in reducing the spread of the coronavirus, they can also present challenges to your skin. This may cause problems that range from acne and peeling to rashes and itchiness or worse.
