Olivia Rodrigo Blames COVID Face Mask for Daily Battle With Acne

In a new magazine piece, the ‘Deja Vu’ singer opens up about her having the worst case of dermatitis as she discusses her skincare regime and her use of ancient Chinese method gua sha.

AceShowbiz -Face masks are wreaking havoc on Olivia Rodrigo‘s skin. The “Traitor” hitmaker, 18, has opened up about her skincare regime in a new Vogue piece, and she admits the need to mask up to help prevent the spread of COVID has left her with a daily acne battle.

“I had the worst case of dermatitis, where I just broke out all around my mouth, and it was awful,” she says. “I think it was wearing masks a lot, and also, using a bunch of products that irritated my skin.”

“So my dermatologist said, ‘OK, cut everything out of your skincare routine, just wash your face.’ And that’s sort of why my skincare and makeup routine and stuff is so simple. I think less is more with skincare, a lot of the time,” she divulges.

The “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” star admits, “I cannot expect to have perfect skin all the time. My skin loves breaking out on my chin and on my nose. The masks definitely do not help.”

Rodrigo reveals she uses a gua sha – an ancient Chinese method of increasing circulation in your face with a flat stone – adding, “I kind of just started recently doing this this year, and it’s really relaxing.”

In addition, the “Deja Vu” singer uses a serum from the Ordinary, a Burt’s Bees lip balm, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturiser, Glossier Stretch Concealer, Glossier Boy Brow, Glossier Pro Tip and Glossier Ultralip, that has not yet hit the market.
