Skin-care clothing could become a fashion trend in the future. At least this year, a number of fashion brands have launched skincare collections.
This is known as ‘well fashion,’ where clothing serves a purpose other than just covering the skin or looking stylish. However, it is also beneficial to one’s health and appearance.
Comfiknit, a Hong Kong-based company that creates textiles with special features for people who have atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema. The T-shirt material employs technology that can remove sweat while also maintaining the skin’s moisture and pH balance, ensuring that the skin remains healthy and strong.
“Three-layer knitting works specifically and gradually to create a good environment for the skin in order to maintain its health. Its function is permanent, and its benefits are indefinite “According to the South China Morning Post, textile entrepreneur and Comfiknit founder Kenneth Lau.
Lumiton, a start-up from the United States, also sells clothing that converts sunlight into infrared light, which has a variety of skin benefits. One of them shields the skin from the harmful effects of UV rays while also cooling it.
“Red light therapy is not a new concept; it has been used for medical purposes for many years. The great thing is that we can use sunlight to boost the effectiveness of our clothing “said Lumiton co-founder Gates Hinds.
Meanwhile, Buki, a brand that makes casual and home wear, uses fabrics that contain sea collagen. This collagen can hold moisture on the skin, making it feel softer and more hydrated.
PH5 is another fashion brand that can also care for your skin. This knitted material brand creates pajamas from cotton infused with hyaluronic acid molecules.
The fabric’s hyaluronic acid content is said to increase the feeling of comfort on the skin. Aside from that, it offers the same benefits as facial care masks and other skincare products by releasing these acid molecules onto the skin when applied.
