Maskne is real, and so are dry hands
7 ways Oulis can help you
So I’ve heard from a lot of you recently regarding Ouli's Ointment Balm saving your hands and faces from Covid related anti bacterial hand sanitizers and masks.
I’m so happy to hear our balm is helping! I wanted to highlight a few ways you can maximize on the hydration and help speed up recover of your skin.
- Apply frequently and while skin is still wet
- Apply before bed and put socks on your hands for as long as you can sleep like that to add an extra layer of protection
- File dry skin on your hands to stop you picking your fingers and to help maximise on moisture
- Mix some honey with your balm and apply to your face as a mask, leave on for about 20 mins then sit a warm damp cloth on your face for a few minutes then wipe off (check out this instagram video I did using it as a mask)
- Don't wear makeup under your mask and add a layer of our balm to add a protective layer and block out nasties
- Steam your face to open pores before washing.
- Make sure you wash your face with warm water. Warm enough to wash away the day. If it's too hot it will dry your skin out more.
Honey our miracle worker
Raw honey helps balance the bacteria on your skin, which makes it a great product to use for acne. Manuka honey has been studied as an anti-acne product and found to be significantly more effective than other popular products. Honey speeds up your skin cells' healing processes.
Honey has anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and promotes rapid and improved healing of skin which is what makes it so great for maskne or dry skin. These effects are due to honey's anti-bacterial action, secondary to its high acidity, osmotic effect, anti-oxidant content and hydrogen peroxide content. Pretty amazing miracle worker and another reason we need to protect our bees.
