Abstract

Background: On March 11 2020, WHO declared COVID-19 as a pandemic. One of the efforts to prevent, control and break the chain of transmission of COVID-19 in the community is to use a mask. However, apart from feeling uncomfortable, many complaints about acne due to the use of masks are found in the community. During the COVID-19 pandemic, a popular phenomenon appeared on social media, namely "Maskne", a combination of the words mask and acne. Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of acne due to the use of masks. Methods: The approach used in this research is quantitative, cross- sectional with data collection techniques through questionnaires. Data analysis using SPSS version 16.0 software. Results: The results showed that the longer use of masks, the higher incidence of acne; the more steps of cleaning the face, the smaller severity of acne. Conclusion: The incidence of acne due to wearing mask during the COVID-19 pandemic correlates with the length of time wearing a mask. The type of mask, the colour of the mask and the variety of beauty products used are not correlated with an increase in the incidence of acne during the use of masks.
