Hello heroes!

 

We use that term – heroes – frequently here, but today I’m talking about our healthcare heroes, the heroes fighting Covid-19 on the frontlines. 

 

These are stressful times for all of us. Because of coronavirus and the disease it causes, Covid-19, millions of Americans are constantly worrying - about their loved ones, their health, their jobs, and their inability to balance work and homeschooling and keeping it all together.

 

Nurses, doctors and other healthcare workers are not only facing these same stressors, but also the anxiety of caring for sick patients and exposing themselves (and their families) to risk, all while facing a shortage of surgical face masks and other personal protective equipment. Some of my friends have even mentioned new hospital protocols that require them to reuse face masks, placing them in ziploc bags to use for their next shift. It’s a whole different level of stress from what most of us are dealing with.

 

Here at Hero HQ (virtual, of course), we’ve been racking our brains to figure out what we could do to help the heroes of this pandemic. Last week, we donated Mighty Patch Surface patches to Monmouth Medical Center, NYU Langone, UT Southwestern, and MidHudson Regional Hospital. We also gave 20% of our website sales to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s (CDP) COVID-19 Response Fund, which supports local healthcare workers, quarantined and vulnerable individuals, and hygiene promotion activities. 

 

But we wanted to do more. Luckily, we came across this video (see below) and realized exactly what we could do. Right before this man puts on his face masks and other protective gear, he applies patches to his nose and cheeks, most likely to protect his skin from the irritation that can be caused by rubbing, friction or extended wear.

It makes perfect sense. Even before the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve heard from our customers in healthcare fields who experience frequent breakouts in the mask area. Their skin is trapped under a tight face mask – along with moisture, sweat, excess sebum from pores and oil from cosmetic products. And all of these breakout triggers stay in contact with their skin for the entire time they are wearing a mask. Add to that the tremendous stress that healthcare workers are under right now, and it’s definitely a recipe for overactive sebaceous glands, clogged pores and acne.

 

That’s why we’re offering all healthcare professionals a free Mighty Patch Variety Pack and Rescue Balm 👉 right here. Let us take one worry off your plate – acne and irritated skin. 

 

The Surface patch is the perfect size for protection under your face mask and Mighty Patch Original and Invisible+ will eliminate any pimples in just a few hours. Then, Rescue Balm can help post-pimple skin recover quickly. And even if you aren’t experiencing breakouts right now, Rescue Balm is a soothing multitasker that can help with dry skin, minor skin irritations, redness, razor burn, and small burns from flat irons, straighteners or curling irons.

 

If you know a healthcare professional who might need Mighty Patch or Rescue Balm, please share this post.

 

Healthcare workers deserve our thanks and admiration, now more than ever. We hope this small offer of our gratitude can help you power through these tough times.

 

Take care,

Ju
