Flare-ups and clogged pores due to the increased humidity under the close fitting masks which can trap oil and subum released from skin pores

The balm will provide a fine layer of waxes and oils on the skin helping to reduce the friction and chafing from the mask, and the essential oils of Clary Sage, Geranium and Rosemary will help tto keep the mask feeling fresh and hygienic, with the Clary Sage's anti-bacterial qualities helping to keep skin clean.
