Why should you keep a mask on your face?

CNN’s The Seven Seven explores new evidence that shows the prevalence of face masks among Asian people, and that they provide the best protection against ailments caused by skin cancer and aging.

The seven-part series, from CNN International’s Science and Nature Editor David de Garis, explores how mask fashion and science do more than concealaging; they also protect us from some of the most adverse consequences of our rough and wrinkly faces.

In a five-part web series, de Garis demonstrates how several popular brands, including the French company Sisley and Japanese-based Shu Uemura, help the skin be more vibrant and flexible. The series includes the most recent studies in technology and science and the latest research on how masks combat hyperpigmentation and prevent skin aging.
