According to medical professionals, silk masks protect even better than other fabric face masks and it easier to breathe with them. In addition, wearing a silk face mask is better for the skin. Considering that wearing a mask exposes your skin to a fabric that rubs against it and that breathing causes heat and moisture, skin irritation can occur. Hence, silk masks are better because silk is a very cooling material that does not dry out the skin, and is less likely to cause an allergic reaction than any other material. So, for people with problematic skin, silk face masks are definitely a better alternative. Plus, once washed they can be reused.
