Face masks are essential to preventing the spread of the corona virus pandemic, but it’s taking a toll on skin. Because Bare Pits is a natural deodorant and skin care for sensitive skin company amd we understand high quality ingredients that work with the body to heal... so we have created Bare Pits Body Healing Face Mask Butter & Bare Pits Body Healing Healing Face Mask Oil
With the CDC's recent recommendation that everyone wear face masks in public, more people are looking for face coverings—or making their own —in order to help flatten the curve. However, wearing face masks for extended periods of time comes with a risk of its own, with many people experiencing uncomfortable skin issues.
Here’s the dilemma: Face masks need to fit snugly on the wearer’s face, and must close tightly around the nose to ensure that they offer maximum protection. While those characteristics make it effective at filtering out airborne particles, the tighter the mask, the more frictional pressure is placed on the skin. According to a recent study published in the Journal of Wound Care from the University of Huddersfield in the United Kingdom, medical masks are causing inflammation and even pressure ulcers, a phenomenon which can lead to pain and infection.
Because of the occlusive nature of the mask, your breathing is trapped, creating a humid environment for your skin. “The wearers are sweating underneath the masks, and this causes friction, leading to pressure damage on the nose and cheeks,” says Professor Karen Ousey, one of the authors of the paper. “There can be tears to the skin as a result, and these can lead to potential infection.”
So what should you do if you’re experiencing irritation? If possible, Ousey suggests pressure from the mask to be relieved every two hours, and if you feel your mask rubbing, take it off as soon as it is safely possible.
Caring for the skin can also reduce the chances of pressure sores developing and definitely use Bare Pits organic skin care products because it doesn’t contain potentially irritating topicals like acids and retinoids, as these can further irritate the skin. First and foremost, it’s important to keep both the mask and your face clean. Prior to putting on your mask, follow these 3 important steps:
naturally killls bacteria (removes odor)
cleanses like no other, removes build up of pores
soothes, heals, and moisturizes skin
2) Apply Bare Pits Body Organic Face mask healing butter at night and in the morning as much as needed ( for day use apply 30 minutes before wearing a mask to create a protective barrier between the mask and your face to reduce friction)

CDC on Homemade Cloth Face Coverings
CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance. The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance. Should cloth face coverings be washed or otherwise cleaned regularly? How regularly? Yes. They should be routinely washed depending on the frequency of use. How does one safely sterilize/clean a cloth face covering? A washing machine should suffice in properly washing a face covering. How does one safely remove a used cloth face covering? Individuals should be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their face covering and wash hands immediately after removing.
