The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mandates the use of N95 masks and personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers to protect from exposure to COVID-19. Nurses and doctors from around the world have posted the effects of wearing goggles and masks for extensive periods of time inclusive of redness, creases, and facial bruising. Freeman Beauty hopes the donation will provide some self-care and relief to the effects of extensive hours of care during this global pandemic.
"COVID-19 has impacted the world and divided us into two groups: those on the front lines and those exercising their civic duties by staying home. With the current state of the world, self-care and skincare have become a key pillar of normalcy for both groups. We are proud to donate 1 million face masks to nurses and medical workers who have been vigorously going to battle day in and day out as our way to say thank you with our deepest gratitude," said Bill George, CEO of Paris Presents Inc.
Freeman Beauty’s donation will include Melting Sugar Moisturizing Rose Gummy Bear Face Masks, Melting Sugar Oil Absorbing Lemon Meringue Face Masks, and Melting Sugar Pore Clearing Match Ice Cream Face Masks.
Recipients of the Freeman Beauty Face Mask donation span cross-country across hospitals and associations of all sizes and include Mercy Medical, Memorial Healthcare System, Houston Methodist Hospital and New York State Nurses Association.
