Hypercholesterolemia and dyslipidemia: how to detect them?
There are no physical symptoms of hypercholesterolaemia and dyslipidemia and so it is difficult to detect them with the naked eye.

The occlusion caused by a mask increases the temperature and humidity around the face (“sauna effect”). These higher temperatures and humidity levels encourage growth of the bacteria found on our skin and stimulate the production of sebum by our sebaceous glands.
