“Since the onset of masks, there's been an increased awareness of facial breakouts, referred to as ‘maskne,’ said Arizona licensed aesthetician Noelani Ganz. “I am seeing more instances of acne and dermatitis on skin that was previously unaffected. It's related to dirty masks and materials that irritate the skin along with the effects of heat and moisture.”
CoQau’s products are antimicrobial, repelling germs and bacteria. Additionally, the fabric is super soft, breathable, and lightweight. “I’m excited for my clients to try these alternative face coverings to help keep their skin clear while keeping them safe.” Ganz added.
Jenna Hilton, MPAS, PA-C, Co-Founder of Vibrant Vitality Clinic at Vibrant Skin Bar and Anti-Aging Specialist says, “Ubiquinone, or Coenzyme Q10, is a vital antioxidant that becomes depleted in our skin cells as we age. If we can replenish those cells with CoQ10 topically we can repair our damaged cells and support a healthy skin barrier. Additionally, utilizing smart fabrics as a physical sunscreen avoids the irritation that can be caused by many chemical-based sunscreens. Finally, because we are all wearing face coverings more frequently, it is important that they are resistant to the growth of bacteria. I love that CoQau’s fabrics are antimicrobial and anti-aging, but do not disrupt the delicate balance of our own microbiome.”
Masks and face coverings are a known way we can all help to slow the spread of COVID-19. “As a physician, I know that masks are important in the fight against COVID-19. Any face covering, even cloth masks, are effective. So, if a stylish cloth mask encourages use, I’m all for it.” says Dr. Wayne Franklin, Co-Director of the Heart Center at Phoenix Children’s and Professor at University of Arizona-College of Medicine-Phoenix.
