~ Helping our Skin Behind the Mask ~
How to help our skin that is reacting to stress,
and a common question we're getting...
"How can I help my sensitive skin
under my mask?"
🎥 A Q&A Video Sit-Down
from Me to You 💗
We might be smiling under our masks when we're offering a helping hand, but our skin might be frowning when the mask comes off.
As a whole, all of us are making a healthy difference in large and small ways! We're wearing our masks, wearing gloves when necessary, practicing physical distancing, staying safe, and we're staying home. We can do this! We'll be around the corner soon.
For those in the health care industry, after the day is done, the shift is over, and the mask comes off, there can be a physical change in the surface of the skin. Anything from acne flare-ups, a Rosacea outbreak, a spot of eczema, or even bruising.
We're thinking about all of you who are wearing your masks every day, ALL day. Thank you for being there, thank you for risking your own health, and your family's health, and thank you for caring like you do!!! 👨⚕️👩⚕️🏥😷
Whether we're at home, or in a hospital or clinic, all of us globally are feeling the changes and stress of the current pandemic. It will come to an end, and in the meantime, let's not fight it. Let's adjust and become more focused to stay fit, creative, positive, healthy, and then stronger because of it. 👊
The Images Say It out Loud
Men and women in the medical field are speaking out and sharing their skin irritation and sensitivities on social media.
Skin is very reactive to stress on the inside, as well as constant pressure and rubbing on the outside. Just like a blister on a heel, or chafing from a running bra or clothes, when the skin is constantly being rubbed in the same spot, it can become bruised, sensitive, scraped, and uncomfortable. It's temporary, but it can be painful and make us feel self-conscious.
These are images from a recent article. Here is the link via Yahoo news about this timely side effect that medical professionals and others are feeling and seeing.
This is an email we received. It's touched us, it's touched me, and we want to share it with you.
Thank you, Maria, and ALL of you who are on the front lines caring for those in need of medical assistance day-in and day-out.
It's no secret that stress and skin upset go hand-in-hand. Rosacea, eczema, many other skin reactions can often be a systemic reaction to increased stress inside the body. I experienced these things heavily on and off for years. The good news is, these conditions can often be managed in healthy, natural ways.
On the outside, when we add synthetics, fragrances that are artificially manufactured, parabens, phalates, and even fillers and thickeners, our sensitive skin might cry out for even more help. It's time to stop the madness ~ no more synthetics or harmful ingredients!
We're an oily bunch here at Qēt! I mean this in the very best way. 😊We formulate and fulfill all of our own proprietary treatments without even one drop of anything synthetic, toxic, harsh, artificially fragranced, or hormone disrupting.
We use oils to calm, hydrate, clean, and yes... we even use oils to help calm inflammation, acne, Rosacea, and skin upset.
Oils... can you believe it? Yes, believe it.
Not all oils are good for every skin condition, but the right oil and combination of plant actives can positively benefit every skin condition.
Let's Sit Together for a Spell ~
Our skin, body, and hair formulas in Qēt Botanicals were not developed because of good skin; they were an answer to my personal skin and health struggles. It was the answer to the need for better, fresher, and cleaner ingredients that we feel confident in using.
The last thing we want to worry about now are our ingredients in those care products that we reach for on a daily basis.
💗 This pandemic is a first for all of us; this video answer is a first for us, too. We know that skincare is personal and intimate; this is a Q&A personal video from me to you.
It answers a common question we’re getting about how our skin is reacting negatively to wearing our face masks, stress, and this season of change that we’re in.
How can we help our skin, our health, and our mindset?
Have a seat with me and take a listen.
