Choose The Right Mask
Choosing the right face mask can prevent acne from getting worse, or reduce spots caused by friction and allergies. To protect against friction, your mask should fit well. This should fit comfortably over your face, without being too tight that it's inconvenient. Choosing a mask that doesn't affect allergies or cause irritation is also important.This is often the case with disposable masks which are made from synthetic materials.
To avoid spots from face masks, we suggest using a sustainable, natural face mask, made from cotton or linen that can be reused. These soft materials will protect your skin from maskne, whilst also offering sustainable protection from COVID-19. Disposable masks are made from different variants of plastic, which are often incorrectly disposed of - and so add to global plastic pollution.
Being able to reuse fabric masks will decrease the amount of waste and plastic pollution, whilst keeping you safe from the virus. Discover more on Florena’s sustainability commitments to the environment and on sustainable skincare.
