Benefits of a 100% Silk Mask
Wearing a mask on a daily basis has been the norm for many Asian countries for quite some time now and it's now becoming the new norm worldwide. Masks have shown to be effective in protecting ourselves and others from the spread of disease. For some it may have taken some time to get used to this new accessory, but it makes it easier when there are so many cute options on the market!
Something many of us have experienced due to so much mask wearing is Maskne (acne caused by face masks). That's why investing in a 100% silk mask has been so popular as there are many benefits that come with using this fabric. Silk is cooling, breathable, and naturally hypoallergenic, and therefore, great for sensitive skin. In the past, silk has been recommended for pillow cases, scrunchies, and hair turbans to protect our skin and hair.
Some important features to look for when purchasing a reusable mask are a nose wire to properly close any gaps, double or triple layered with the option of inserting a filter, and adjustable ear loops to ensure a better fit. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), proper storage, use, and cleaning/disposal are all equally important to ensure you're getting the most out of your mask.
How to Use/Clean A Silk Mask:
-Wash your hands before putting on your mask
-When putting on your mask make sure your nose, mouth, and chin are fully covered and that there are little to no gaps letting excess air through
-Store your mask in a clean bag
-Hand wash your mask daily with a gentle soap and water and hang to dry
