Acne and Maskne

Painful red and inflamed pimples caused by bacteria and other factors.

What is it?

Painful and unattractive red and white bumps that arise, sometimes in clusters, on your face, neck, chest, shoulders and back.

How is it caused?:Adult acne can be caused by the same issue that causes acne in teens, excess oil and bacteria. Hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, menstruation, stress, poor diet and unhealthy lifestyles such as smoking, drugs, alcohol, are also factors in this condition arising, literally, from your skin! Did one or both of your parents have adult acne? Chances are you're at higher risk.

Maskne is caused by our prolonged use of masks during Covid-19. It’s a term for a few different real dermatologic conditions which can affect the face especially in the setting of heat (hot breath), humidity, blockage and friction.

How do you prevent?

Prevention is better than cure! Keep skin clean at all times. Enlist the help of a nutritionist or registered dietician who can help balance your gut. Meditate the stress of daily life away for 10 minutes every day and only choose effective products that help keep skin clear of dead skin cells and excess oils. Keep our handy Buzz off Bumps in your gym bag, glove compartment and inflight carry ons. Swipe up to 3 times a day to keep all areas exfoliated and free of dirt from daily pollution. Do not EVER pick your acne it can lead to infection and scarring.

How do you treat?

Some cases of acnes are so severe that they require the attention of a doctor. At Queen Bee we treat acne by using antibacterial washes, our Buzz off Bumps pads and high-frequency treatments. Products containing anti-inflammatory products such as aloe, chamomile, oats, comfrey etc. can also be used to help soothe inflamed skin. We never extract whiteheads and neither should you.

Prevention is better than cure!
