When it comes to protection, we often neglect the basics. With the pandemic that paralyzed a number of economies, and with the health risk involve here and there, sometimes we settle for a reusable face mask as our regular face-covering without us knowing that it could also cause acne or discomfort later on. It should not be that way. There is an on-going campaign on the designer face mask that raved by a group of designer collectors. The likes of Lilly Pulitzer, Rent the Runway, Collina Strada, Akris, Roopa Pemmaraju, Michael Ngo and Phillip Lim are just a few of them. If there is one word that unites them all, it is about the fashion mask that uses “cotton” as the main fabric.
TYPES OF FACE MASK: HOW TO CHOOSE
Vented face mask, N95 mask, surgical mask, designer face mask, kids face mask and cotton face mask. Name it. We heard these types of masks or read them in the Google search engine. But how will we know the usage of these face masks or what type do we need for ourselves?
Different face masks function individually. They are all face-covering mask that shields our face against direct contact of transmission, but the difference will rely on the quality and the purpose of each.
N95 Mask – This name sends quite a fear like a world is chaotic or we are invaded by a powerful source. Forget about the fear or the invasion, but this is the most reliable mask used in medical settings.
This mask is an APR or air-purifying respirator that is certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The purpose of this facial covering is to eliminate 95% of smoke particles. It can cover us against microbes in the air. Nevertheless, it does not filter toxic gases, vapor, or even the smell of the smoke.
Surgical Mask – Have we examined the face covering worn by the doctors, nurses, or any medical professionals? It is normally in the shade of green and white on the opposite. A surgical mask is expected to be worn by these people during surgeries and any healthcare procedures.
Unlike the N95 mask, this disposable mask is created to prevent any infection between the patient and the health worker by the transmission of viruses and bacteria through the droplets discharged in the air. It shields the eyes and nose because these parts are the openings for these pathogens to access the body. Also, this is a PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) standard mask graded by the industry.
Face Mask – This mask is made from polyester fabrics to cotton and other textile fabrics. Most of these face coverings incorporated fashion and style in mind when they were created. With the fashion mask campaigns and the resurgence of facial masks due to the pandemic, this is indeed the most convenient, readily available mask that everyone can afford or personally do since it is an easy face mask DIY homemade project.
HOW TO WEAR AND WASH OUR FACE MASK TO AVOID ACNE
Most of the face mask we will obtain in the market are generic. They are so similar that we need to change it every day because of the stain and odor it left on the mask. Also:
Wearing a mask is like wearing protection. With the pandemic and asymptomatic people, we will not know who are the carriers and who are not.
When washing our face mask, it is important to use a germicidal detergent powder to protect our kids and family. The general rule is washing our face mask every day after every use. However, airDefender airMask® is using an antimicrobial coating solution, so we do not need to wash our face mask more often.
It gives us more time to focus on our family while providing us immediate protection, so we need not worry about rare occasions such as running an errand, grocery shopping, or going to the drugstore.
CDC FACE MASK RECOMMENDATION
With all the hype and campaigns that help in battling the pandemic, CDC as one of the forefronts in the proper wearing and usage of masks emphasized the importance of following their guidelines in order to avoid the transmission and help the community.
DIY HOMEMADE FACE MASK
During an outbreak, it is important to know the availability of any products. For instance, face masks have been essential during the pandemic. America is facing a shortage in PPEs like face masks, gowns, face shields, and other essential items. Health care workers are forced to reuse their PPEs which resulted in contamination and transmission for some.
With the scarcity of essential items like the face mask, there is an alternative way of producing this PPE and that is by making a DIY homemade facial mask. Using cotton fabric material, anyone can create and sew their personalized mask. This alternative mask can be used and worn by any ordinary individuals while giving priority to the doctors and nurses for the medical-grade supplies such as surgical masks.
OUR AIRDEFENDER AIRMASK®: HOW DOES IT DIFFER
Nowadays, the advantage of face mask compared to N95 and surgical facial mask is not just about the customization and comfort. Bioengineers have tweaked the regular face masks and improved it using the latest technologies available. That being said:
THE PERFECT TANDEM
Every day, the number of casualties in the pandemic is rising. What we can do is staying at home as much as possible. There are ways in order to be productive without working outside of our homes. There are online stores, courier services, and other errands that can be done online. This makes it easier for us with the certainty of not contracting any sicknesses.
Now that there are asymptomatic cases, it is impossible to not question the people within our neighborhood. Occasionally, there will be events that we will have to go out or unfavorable events that might occur like a broken car, backyard repairs, snow shoveling, lawn mowing, etc. but there is a perfect tandem that will deliver immediate protection.
Our airDefender® all-in-one antibacterial spray can be applied to the skin protecting our upper respiratory against germs. It provides us instant protection as it immediately kills the germs that were left by the patient. So, it kills these pathogens before we even touch it.
Topped it up by using our all-day wear airDefender airMask®, it will deliver a more proven 10+ hours of protection shield, without any discomfort and an acne-free skin.
