Face Masks and Skin Sensitivity

In the age of social distancing, what can I do to keep my cloth mask from irritating my skin?

  • First of all, before wearing, wash your mask to remove starch and other harsh chemicals.
  • Avoid makeup under the mask.
  • Apply a protective balm to areas that rub.
  • At night, use a gentle cleanser like Obagi, and apply epidermal repair cream (Skinceuticals).
  • Pamper your face!
