The longest amount of straight time I wear a mask is when I'm at the grocery store for up to an hour. Always after about 30-ish minutes I start to sweat and find it harder to breathe. It doesn't matter which of the many masks I wear or what the temp. is in the store. I figure its caused from breathing CO2-rich air for uninterrupted, extended periods. Then I know it's time to start wrapping up the shopping and get out of there soon. It's such a relief to rip off that mask when I get to the car!

You are exhaling moisture laden air into a mask. That is going to introduce moisture and the mask will trap any oils in your skin and rub them right back into your face. Eventually the mask will become saturated and stop flowing well.

I have found myself having acne outbreaks that I have not seen in 30 years, back when I worked in a clean room and wore a mask and a suit and glasses all day long.
