Campaign Treats Surgical Mask-Damaged Skin

DermYoung and Eden Medspa announce their campaign to offer a free 60-minute clinical facial and 2-week take-home kit for COVID-19 first responders.

Skincare company, DermYoung, in partnership with Eden Medspa, are continuing their COVID-19 support efforts by introducing complimentary recovery facials and product kits for first responders.

The “Together We Love, Together We Heal” campaign will offer a 60-minute clinical facial and 2-week take home kits to medical professionals, healthcare volunteers and the New York City Police Department (NYPD). The kit includes the DermYoung I-Genesis collection, Hydrating Mist, Youth Serum, Illume Oil, Hydrating and Pore Refining Fluid and the Vibrant Boosting Facial Mask.

The negative effects masks can have on the skin have been well reported and seen firsthand by many health professionals. The necessary use of masks to protect against possible COVID-19 contamination can also lead to friction and irritation to the face, along with oil build-up and even acne, according to a recent article.

Medical professionals have seen that in serious cases, the almost constant use of N95 masks have led to skin breakdown and bruising.

DermYoung says the recovery facial is an ideal way to counteract some of this skin damage and help soothe the skin from excessive PPE use.

“DermYoung’s recovery facial and products are ideal for first responders’ stressed skin. All of DermYoung treatment products are infused with our proprietary cellular-activating ingredients and a thoughtful and validated selection of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to complement anti-inflammatory functions,” says DermYoung CEO, Yang Brooks, M.D., in the press release announcing the campaign. “These products offer an instant calming and soothing effect on irritated skin, reducing signs of redness, bruising and dehydration. With two week’s consistent use, these products will help to fight against stress-induced inflammation and discoloration, rebuild collagen fibers, reinforce damaged skin barrier and bring a youthful glow to the overstressed face.”

Eden Medspa says their estheticians will give personalized instructions on how to treat each first responders skin concerns.

This campaign comes on the heels of the donation of over 1,000 surgical and N95 masks from DermYoung and Eden Medspa, which were sent to Massachusetts General Hospital, and other local hospitals.

DermYoung also donated $6,000 of Illumine Oil to the Cerner Corporation to distribute to medical professionals experiencing eczema and skin rashes.

“Eden has been committed to their community for almost 20 years now. During the 9/11 crisis, we opened our doors to offer firefighters and the NYPD free massages. I was heartbroken when I saw the scars and bruising on the first responders faces, and knew Eden MedSpa had to do something to give back,” says Eden Medspa owner Yvette Jiang. “We were already working with DermYoung on an initiative to donate PPE to local hospitals, so it made perfect sense to partner on this charitable effort. As a licensed medical esthetician, I also know the DermYoung products will create an immediate glow as well as the deep healing their skin so desperately needs. The first responders have been fighting to take care of us, now is the time for us to take care of them.”
