4, pay attention to skin moisture.Before wearing the mask, it is recommended to apply a layer of moisturizing cream on the facial skin to prevent oily, dry and itchy skin, especially the parts that rub against the mask, such as the nose rest and ear strap.

5, pay attention to facial skin cleaning.Clean your face morning and evening, oily skin or every day or every other day with a cleansing product, if there is the use of sunscreen, powder or grease cosmetics need to use a cleansing product, but only the use of oil color thick makeup or waterproof cosmetics is recommended to use makeup remover.Pay special attention not to overclean, to the skin after washing is not dry as the standard of moderate cleaning.

Special Reminder

1: Put paper inside the mask to absorb sweat.

Because the most commonly used medical mask has a water-blocking layer, which holds your breath and is not comfortable enough. In addition, when the weather is hot, it is easy to sweat. Some people wear a layer of cotton mask inside the medical mask, or pad a layer of paper towel, thinking that it can absorb sweat and strengthen protection.

Professor Yang Bin bluntly "do not recommend such a practice".She pointed out that, first of all, the closeness of the mask is the key to effectively blocking the virus. Wearing an extra layer of mask or paper towel can affect the closeness of the outside medical mask, which cannot be effectively protected.

Secondly, this will increase the resistance to breathing, people will instinctively increase and deepen breathing, not only affect the health of the body, but also affect the closeness of the mask;

Third, the skin itself contains moisture to achieve barrier function. Cotton cloth and paper towels absorb sweat and "soak" the skin all the time, or take away the moisture of the skin itself after a long time of drying. Both cases will destroy the barrier function, and dry skin with oil is more likely to cause problems.
