We’ve all heard of maskne (aka, acne caused by wearing a mask) and unfortunately, that’s definitely a thing. But mask mouth? Yep. Also a thing. When you’re wearing a mask for any length of time, you’re breathing your own breath, the moisture in your breath gets damp which goes into the fabric of your mask, which in turn is a breeding ground for bacteria such as candida — you may get a rash and your lips may get extremely dry. Hello, mask mouth.
The antidote for dry-lip mask mouth is creating a barrier of moisture on our lips with a nourishing Lip Balm to prevent the constant dryness. Forget lipstick and lip gloss unless you want it sticking to your mask — and the rest of your face. Raw Sugar Natural Lip Balm is the perfect layer of protection, because not only does it moisturize lips with a blend that is made with Cold Pressed ingredients, it has Vitamin E, safflower and jojoba oils to lock in moisture, creating the protection you need while nourishing them at the same time. The added bonus of using Natural Lip Balm in delicious flavors is that the extracts act as a mini aromatherapy session so your brain signals a happy, calm sense of well being. And yet another bonus? Every Lip Balm comes with a tub of exfoliating Lip Scrub.
Lip Scrub is key to exfoliation of sensitive skin on and around your lips, treating dry, chapped lips and adding softness. It will help keep lips primed and pretty and infuses them with a protective veil of moisture to prevent mask irritation. So exfoliate with Lip Scrub. Apply Lip Balm with wild, reckless abandon or at least once an hour. Let’s make mask mouth a thing of the past. Shop below!
