The S.O.S (Save Our Skin) range of skin care products can provide effective relief from the negative effects caused by excessive mask-wearing and environmental factors. S.O.S day barrier and evening creams are specifically formulated to provide relief from acne, excessive dryness, redness, and irritated skin.



Your skin requires a natural balance of hydration and moisture to keep it feeling soft and supple. When hydration and moisture have evaporated, that’s when your skin’s natural barrier starts to break down. When your skin’s barrier fails, it becomes more prone to infections, acne-causing bacteria, and even the effects of premature ageing.


Wearing a mask has become the new norm for our daily routines. While masks are being used to help stop the spread of COVID-19, few people are talking about the damage that mask-wearing can do to our skin.

Masks can create a humid environment where uncirculated air gets trapped. These conditions under the mask can cause the formation of red pimples and blood vessels on your cheeks and nose. To protect your skin from the effects of mask wearing, it’s vital to boost your natural skin barrier.

A common treatment recommended is the use of moisturiser creams and SPF sunscreens with ceramides. These formulations can help boost your skin’s natural barrier by helping skin cells bond together. The S.O.S (Save Our Skin) range from Dermal Hub has been specially formulated to treat and prevent the symptoms of mask wearing. Applying S.O.S products can help form a protective barrier on your skin against the excessive friction of daily mask wearing.

S.O.S products provide simple solutions in the form of day and night creams to help restore your skin’s natural barrier.
