A refreshing face mist infused with hydrating and calming extracts of Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Oats, Rosehip, Chamomile, Sage, Turmeric, Calendula. Furthermore, it might come very handy after wearing one of those pesky face coverings for a little too long. Spraying your face on a regular basis will help your skin stay hydrated while feeling fresh and cool under the face mask.
In fact, there are downsides for some people to wearing a face mask or any face covering. Especially those whom must keep them on for hours; healthcare workers, essential service workers, store, restaurant employees, or anyone with underlying skin problems.
“When you blend together trapped breath, sweat and oil, you end up with a hot and moist environment under your mask. This often leads to stress, irritation with or without red rashes, to tiny pimples around the nose and mouth”, Professor Friedman of George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences says.
The mask friction against the top layer of your skin releases water. As a result, your skin loses its natural moisture, and becomes a less effective protective barrier against the mask,” explains Friedman. “Your skin may start showing dry, cracked skin that then evolves into red patches.”
He recommends applying a moisturizer or face spray about every two hours to dampen, hydrate the skin well while providing skin-barrier replenishment. Choose non-comedogenic products that won’t clog pores.
In addition, it’s a good idea to wash your face before and after wearing a face covering. And moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
Same advice for your hands, which often become dry over time from constant washing. If your hands get severely dry and flaky, dry them with a linen or cotton towel rather than paper towel (more abrasive and harsh on skin). And moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
