ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM MASK-
Almost two thirds (63%) of people with self-reported rosacea are experiencing worsening of symptoms as a result of wearing a mask.*
During Covid-19, reports of mask-related skin conditions were on the rise. Unfortunately, mask wearing can also cause mask-related rosacea
A number of people living with rosacea have said that mask wearing has significantly increased the severity of their rosacea, and has had a negative impact on their quality of life†
DON’T LET A MASK GET IN YOUR WAY!
If you’re still wearing a mask, here are some tips on how you can help manage your rosacea:
Apply a fragrance-free moisturizer under your mask
Try to use a new or clean mask every time
Experiment with different masks to find one that fits, and doesn’t cause you to overheat
It is important that your dermatologist understands how wearing a mask has affected your rosacea. We’ve developed an interactive guide to help you record and discuss your experiences with rosacea, for you to take to your next consultation
