The best face masks to combat maskne

Last updated:

AS WE transition into the colder months, and find ourselves wearing masks for longer periods, our skin is suffering. The term ‘maskne’ has been coined in response to the breakouts and skin complaints developed as a result of increased and prolonged mask wearing, and Joyce Beauty suggest face masks as a means to combat this.

Here are a host of face masks designed to sooth, boost and clarify skin.
