Even before the pandemic, you would always see me wearing a face mask every time I took the commute. I had a humiliating cough allergy, but I also had a bad case of acne. So, a decade pre-COVID, I was already ruminating on where to get masks that prevent acne or maskne.
I rarely go out now, but I’m thankful for the evolution of masks. Recently, a favorite family & first-aid brand, Mediplast, launched its washable and “breathable” mask that promises to have 99.9% antibacterial property, as well as antifungal and antiviral properties because of its “copper and alloy material, backed up by quality test results from reputable and authorized testing centers”—the MEDIPLAST 30 Days Copper Mask.
Now, people are debating on the effectivity of copper mask, but what I really love about these new masks—aside from the pretty pastel colors—is the comfort they bring to your face. They don’t cause ear pain and you can choose the right size for you; it’s available in small, medium and large sizes. These masks are suitable for those who do strenuous activities, such as heavy exercises, but still need protection. Those who still say “they can’t breathe” thus lowering their masks the whole time.
My family is too paranoid that we always do double mask, though.
The MEDIPLAST Copper Mask is washable and can be used up to 30 times, with 90% excellent performance even after 30 washes—making it a sustainable option among the plethora of mask choices in the market.
It costs P259 SRP and comes in five cute colors: Black, White, Pink, Yellow, and Blue Mint. It’s now available in Mercury Drug Stores nationwide, as well as online via the Philusa Flagship Store in Lazmall (LAZADA) and Shopeemall (Shopee). To ensure safety and authenticity, make sure to buy from the authorized and verified stores.
