If you are prone to acne, wearing a mask may cause a breakout. The acne is likely occurring as a result of the blockage or closing of the hair follicles (pilosebaceous duct) treating acne with medications containing benzolyl peroxide and retinoids can take months to take effect and these treatments under a mask can become more irritating then they arw helpful.
Hot and humid temperatures can also flare red pimples and blood vessels on your cheeks and nose known as rosacea. A few preventative measures to take include avoiding caffeine, alcohol, sunlight, and as much as possible cooling your face throughout the day when you're able to safely do so.
