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.”
Bare Pits has created the perfect blend of organic oils that are high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, antiinflammatory, and antibacterial properties that heal and treat skin irritantions, acne, and dermatitis. Our products can also be used daily for glowing, rejuvenated, and moisturized skin.
Apply Bare Pits Organic Face mask healing oil 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)
Ingredients: organic apricot kernel oil, organic grapeseed oil, organic fractionated coconut oil, organic sea buckthorn oil
Organic Apricot Kernel Oil: Apricot kernel oil is cold pressed and refined from the dried kernels of the apricot fruit. Sought out for its high vitamin E content and skin softening properties, apricot kernel oil is known for its ability to penetrate the skin without leaving an oily feel. Rich in essential fatty acids like oleic and linoleic acid, apricot kernel oil is high in vitamin A. Since it easily penetrates the skin, it is good oil for prematurely aged, dry or irritated skin. Vitamins A & C are good for mature dry or sensitive skin. The apricot kernel oil helps skin retain elasticity, clarity, and suppleness. It helps to calm the inflammation / irritation of eczema and dermatitis.
Organic Grape Seed Oil
The oil is extracted without solvents or any kind of chemical processing and is obtained by cold pressing followed by a thorough filtration, maintaining the components of the oil.
This oil is an important source of antioxidants, nutrients that traps the free radicals generated by the skin lipids. The high contents of omega 6 fatty acids can assist with skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. It is rapidly absorbed by the skin.
Grape-seed oil is therefore particularly useful for those who struggle with inflammatory skin conditions such as rosacea or eczema, or who simply have sensitive skin.
Organic Fractionated Coconut Oil:
It has antibacterial properties, which help in strengthening the skin barrier and fight many types of skin infections including acne, cellulitis, folliculitis and athlete’s foot caused by bacteria or fungi.
Its antimicrobial properties deem it a helpful medium for killing bacteria on the skin and reducing inflammation. Its high concentration of linoleic acid, an unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid, also renders it an emollient and skin soother.
Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil:
From the salty sea coasts of the European Atlantic, to the semi-deserts of Central Asia and North America, to the subalpine mountains of the Himalayas, sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides)grows around the globe.
The plant’s long silvery leaves and bright orange berries are loaded with essential fatty acids and vitamins, along with an abundant of active ingredients including:
Vitamin C, E, B, Beta carotene, Citric acid, Malic acid, Anthocyanins (a type of flavonoid and class of compound with antioxidant effects),Palmitoleic acid (a component of skin lipids which stimulates the regenerative processes in the epidermis layer of the skin)

Sea Buckthorn contains over 20 minerals and 60 antioxidants, 3 times more Vitamin A than Carrots and a potent amount of Vitamin E too. In case that wasn't enough goodness packed into the one ingredient, Sea Buckthorn also contains fatty acids and Omegas 3, 6, 9 and 7.
