Silk Face Masks are Better for Your Skin and Health

Since wearing face masks became a legal requirement in many indoor public settings worldwide to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, more people are on the way to find the most comfortable and effective fabrics to protect us against the virus. You'll find face masks made of cotton, polyester, or silk. Research shows that silk is the most effective at preventing small aerosol droplets(generated when people cough or sneeze) from penetrating masks compared to cotton and polyester. So among all the safe and stylish options, silk fabric is the most popular one.

Many people with sensitive skin have problems wearing face masks since day one and those who have never had issues with their skin before. You can easily imagine that wearing something tightly wrapped around your face for a long time is really irritating skin. More seriously, synthetic materials are harsher on your skin, and the constant rubbing can lead to mites and dust penetrating deeper into your skin. Resulting in blackheads and rashes.

With the many undeniable advantages of silk to hair, skin, and health, we have discovered another great use for natural silk fabric: a silk face mask. Here are a few of the benefits of silk face masks that you should know.


Some of us can feel uncomfortable touching certain fabrics. For instance, if you find that you’re prone to acne, skin rashes, or any other allergic reactions when wearing a face mask – opting for a silk face mask could be the best way.

The silk fiber contains natural sericin that can repel common allergens such as dust mites, bacteria, and mold. And it’s free of any potentially irritating added chemicals. Thus silk is known for its hypoallergenic property and gentle on your skin.


Since face masks must fit the face and have good sealing properties to prevent viruses from penetrating the gap and pouring into the human body, air permeability will be the biggest problem that masks meet.

While silk fabrics have cool and breathable properties; it’s also incredibly lightweight. Therefore it is more comfortable to wear without the problems of breathing hard. At the same time, silk will not trap the hot moisture from your breath inside it.


The study found that a silk mask was the most effective barrier to droplets thanks to silk's properties to be anti-bacterial and anti-microbial. This is very important to prevent or reduce virus transmission. In fact, silk has been widely used in the medical fields for stitches and other purposes for many years.
