Maskne is acne breakouts along the jaw, cheeks, and mouth caused by wearing a face mask—get it? Mask, acne, maskne!

The maker of a 70 percent concentration of glycolic acid peel purchased by “GMA” said its product is safe to use at home, as long as the consumer follows the instructions — which would include a patch test to test skin sensitivity — and has gradually increased levels of glycolic acid in prior chemical peels.
