Everyone is obsessed with skincare, even when half our faces are covered most of the time we go out. This begs the question: do face masks cause bad skin?

In short, no. If you do happen to put on a mask and get an allergic reaction, please don't take the easy way out and blame the mask. What's more likely is that the mask is placed over the mouth and nose.

Sometimes, particulate matter gets trapped in between your mask and face. Because the mask is so good at keeping particulate matter out, it also keeps whatever was trapped when you put on your mask in.

If you're wearing a lesser mask, there's a good chance that some particulate matter got into the mask during the manufacturing process. Armbrust USA, a Texas based mask manufacturer goes the extra mile when it comes to keeping the mask making process as clean as possible. A good way to help cut down on potential skin reactions is to ensure your face is as clean as possible before putting on your mask.

What separates Armbrust masks from the rest of the pack is that it manufactures its masks in a clean room. FDA regulations don’t actually call for this. However, doing this ensures our masks its masks are a step above the rest, offering as much cleanliness and protection as possible to our customers.

Funny enough, surgical masks are actually made of plastic. And plastic is hypoallergenic, naturally. What that means is, if you put on a mask and you get a reaction from it, that’s not actually from the mask. That’s something that the mask picked up in the environment. Typically, the manufacturing environment it was made in.

Best of all, Armbrust USA mails masks directly to your doors. Each mask is FDA-listed and carries ASTM Level three certification. This means they filter out all viruses and particulate matter down to 0.1 microns. That's enough to keep you safe from COVID-19 with room to spare.
