I have struggled with my skin since I was young. In my childhood it meant eczema, in my teenage years it meant acne, in my early adulthood it meant dermatitis and in 2020 it means acne caused by my face mask (aka maskne). Or that’s what I thought. My search for the perfect face mask was not easy. In March, when grocery stores and pharmacies were emptied, I used anything from old scarves to a forgotten ski hood that was in the back of my closet. When I was finally able to get my hands on it, I switched to classic light blue surgical masks and some of the many sheet masks that have appeared on the market. But what these masks had in common was that they were all terrible on my skin. The combination of sebum and stress created the perfect environment for emerging acne, which appeared on my cheeks, nose, and chin, which hadn’t happened since I was in high school. It was only when I found this 100% mulberry silk mask that my “maskne” disappeared.
This mask is made of the highest quality silk and is gentle enough even for my extremely sensitive skin. Unlike other masks I’ve tried, the fit is great. It uses earrings, but they have adjustable cords. This way the mask doesn’t pull on my ears, which minimizes irritation. The only downside (if you can call it that) is that it has to be washed, but you should wash your mask anyway. Luckily they’re machine washable, so once a week I put my mask in the washing machine on a cool, gentle setting and let it air dry afterwards. With proper care, the breathable material of this mask is gentler on my skin than any other I have tried, including cotton. And if you need the extra protection, they’ve got you covered, too. The hypoallergenic mask is designed with a discreet pocket for optional filter inserts.
Best of all, the silky sheen of the mask enhances every outfit, even if it’s just sweatpants I wear for a quick run to the grocery store. I’m seriously considering buying one in each color (and they have an amazing selection) so I’m always protected in style. The best part is that when I’m not wearing my favorite mask my face is as clear as it gets.
