Is Using a Face Mask Causing Skin Irritations and Breakouts?

** Care for your skin with gentle, hand blended goodness from KJ Serums **

A lot of us have found that wearing the mandatory protective face mask for regular or long periods of time, especially during the hot season when humidity is high, leads to unwelcome skin irritations and breakouts.

The lack of air circulation and increased temperature around the nose and mouth causes excess perspiration and clogged pores, a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. In some cases, irritation can also be due to the chemicals used to treat the facemask reacting with sensitive skin.


To minimise the negative effects of wearing a face mask, it is recommended to remove it as soon as you reach home, or whenever you are not required to use it, and rinse your face with a mild cleanser to remove the sweat and any harmful buildup. Using a gentle moisturiser, such as KJ Serums’ SkinKarma, post cleansing is an added layer of protection you can afford your skin to avoid a problematic complexion. SkinKarma provides natural hydration in the form of Vegan Hyaluronic Acid, along with Niacinamide (vitamin B3) which improves skin texture and strengthens the

protective barrier function while reducing inflammation and redness. SkinKarma is also highly effective in your day-to-day skincare routine, offering anti-pimentation, anti-ageing, anti-acne, non-comedogenic and antioxidant properties.


KJ Serums’ SkinKarma is available to UAE customers on and is priced at AED 145 for 30ml or AED 195 for 60ml. To discover more and keep up with the latest news, visit KJ Serums on and @KJSerums on Instagram and Facebook.
