At this time, we suggest taking a break from SOOTHE Rescue Mask until breakouts are under control. If these breakouts are acne related, please keep in mind when changing a skincare routine this can trigger an acne breakout. In addition, acne can be triggered by stress, hormonal changes, or even friction such as wearing a hat or helmet. Bacteria may be introduced by a cellphone or your hands, sweating from exercise or a change in medications or skincare products. However, if these breakouts are occurring immediately after introducing SOOTHE Rescue Mask, this may be more of an irritation, and we recommend discontinuing use.
