How to stop redness in the skin from face mask use

This blog post is going to change your life.

Ok, that might be a bit exaggerated, but I’m annoyed that I haven’t given you this tip sooner!

The (literally, speaking) must-wear item of 2021 is, without a doubt, the face mask. Some of you will hate wearing it; others feel safer & enjoy anonymity. Either way, our government (England) has announced that they are no longer mandatory, but we must wear face-covering on most public transport services.

When I first started wearing masks, my face was red and itchy. My ears also hurt from the thin straps. When Face Silk contacted me about their face masks range, I was sceptical. I questioned their durability and protection, but here’s why you should make the switch:

They are better for your skin.

Ever wondered why some people swear by silk pillows? The harsh fabric doesn’t brush up against your face, which is the same for face silks. They’re also moisture-resistant, so ideal for sensitive skin. They feel super lightweight, comfortable and luxurious. I’ve not suffered from itchiness and redness since. The ribbed straps fit nicely behind the ears. Well worth the treat for an everyday item!

They’re sustainable.

I’ve never been a fan of disposable masks, and I hate seeing them littered on the streets! Polyester, cotton and plastic can take thousands of years to biodegrade. Face Silks are handmade with 100% natural and sustainable materials. They are designed to be washable for sustained use.

They’re hypoallergenic.

Silk has natural hypoallergenic properties, so it’s resistant to dust mites, pollen and moulds — big shout out to my long-standing fellow hayfever sufferers!

They have a wide range of colours.

They’re very stylish; I’ve had bounds of compliments, even from strangers! They have lots of different colours, from espresso to rose gold which suits all skin types.
