Our Expert Tips on Combating Maskne

As we do our part to slow the spread by wearing a face mask or face covering, our skin is literally breaking out as a result: pimples, redness, and irritation now plague our faces, whether we’ve experienced acne before or not.

We asked our experts at Caci what their secret tips are for combating maskne.

Cara, Skin Therapist
"Murad's Daily Clarifying Peel is my favourite for fighting maskne and hormonal acne! It has saved my skin the last few months and is a hero product for sure."

Queza, Registered Nurse, Caci Thorndon
"Skinsmiths Resurfacing AHA/BHA Peel twice a week is my hero against maskne! That and my cocktail of Murad's Revitalixir Recovery Serum and Skinsmiths Rebalancing Moisturiser during the day, and Murad's Vita-C Glycolic Brightening Serum and Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream in the evenings."

Gretchen, Treatment Advisor, Caci Wynyard Quarter
"Every few days treat your spot with the Murad Clarifying Mask after your evening routine. Apply where necessary and sleep with it on over night, rinse off in the morning. It is definitely a game changer!"

Murad Clarifying Mask


Hannah, Clinic Owner & Registered Nurse, Caci Kumeu
"Murad's Outsmart Clarifying Treatment for any breakouts and a good double cleanse at night with Murad's Prebiotic 4-in-1 Cleanser."


Linda, Skincare Trainer
"After gloating that I never break out, imagine the horror when I got maskne! My go-to is the Murad Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel. This dissolves the oil surface in pores and by keeping high hydration levels, it will prevent over active sebaceous glands accelerating breakouts!"
