How to wash your mask to avoid damaging your skin

How is your skin after wearing a mask for eight hours? Maybe, even more, depending on your occupation. Meet the soap that will save your life. 

There are days when the skin can be oilier, more sensitive, and others even drier. Yes, protecting ourselves from viruses and protecting others has a cost to our face that can be translated into maskne, the acne that appears from wearing a mask.

However, there is a way to minimize the damage that can be caused by using certain detergents and fabric softeners to wash reusable items. This is the soap that not only cleans effectively but is ecological, multi-use and that leaves your skin much better. 

The neutral, ecological soap that will serve you for everything

"For the cleaning and disinfection of reusable hygienic masks, any of the following methods may be followed," according to Ana Serrano:

1.Washing and disinfecting the masks with normal detergent and water at a temperature between 60º-90º (normal washing machine cycle).

2. Immerse the masks in a 1:50 dilution of bleach with warm water for 30 minutes. Then wash with soap and water and rinse well to remove any residual bleach and let it dry, whether by hand or by machine. Soap is what you need either to wash at a high temperature or to remove the remains of bleach.

An example of this can be the Castilla soap

This wonder is, in fact, the base of all soaps. It is neutral, ecological, and free of chemicals (parabens, silicones, perfumes, dyes, sulfates, etc.), vegan, and organic. It is gentle and not very aggressive to the skin, which is ideal for washing a piece that will be in contact with the face, even if your skin is sensitive or delicate.
