Coronavirus is a disease that affects mainly the upper respiratory tract, but in many cases, it can also affect the skin. However, many people are still unaware of the effects of the pandemic on their skin. Skin gets affected easily because coronavirus first comes into contact with the skin and mucous membrane. Numerous studies are investigating the symptoms of coronavirus appearing on the skin in different forms like rashes, blisters, irritation, dermatitis, etc.

Why is skincare so important now?

“Skin is a first protective barrier from outside. Skin layers work hard to protect us. Skin’s most important role is as the first line of defense between our bodies and the world we live in. Obviously, it keeps us healthy. And in times of social media, everybody is working from home. Everything seems to be happening on Facebook and Instagram.
