The pandemic has inspired expressions that are now part of everyday conversation: “social distancing”, “curbside pickup,” “lockdown”, and “maskne,” a name to describe how the frequent wearing of masks affects the skin and complexion.
“The moist, enclosed environment created by a face mask can trap dirt, oils and makeup leading to ‘maskne’, or mask-induced acne,” says Dr. Sajic. “Patients can avoid this problem by washing or changing masks often and avoiding heavy makeup.”
“Zoom Face” is a phrase that has become popular as personal meetings are replaced with remote video conversations. “People constantly see themselves on computer screens and notice imperfections,” says Dr. Sajic. “Patients are telling me that they are doing all these Zoom meetings. They focus on themselves in the camera.”
Dr. Sajic also shows Aleia how to protect your skin from blue light emitted by computer and phone screens. “For example, always use blue light blocking filters,” says Dr. Sajic.
