Kinesiology tape is a thin, cotton material with an adhesive on one side that is meant to mimic the human skin both in elasticity and thickness. It is made to support joints and muscles in order to encourage and promote the body’s natural healing processes. For 50 years, kinesiology tape has been used all over the body and commonly used facially for headaches, sinus pain to protect the skin from extreme cold winds and prevent cold damage while skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, etc. Still, many people are unaware of the innovative uses for kinesiology tape that can benefit health and improve quality of life. Below, we give you some benefits of using kinesiology tape on your face.

Kinesiology tape can be comfortably used as a face mask that acts as a physical barrier between your mouth/nose and the outside world. Our kinesiology tape, when used as a face mask, provides a breathable, cotton filter that forms perfectly to any face, regardless of size or shape with a latex-free acrylic adhesive that seals effectively and comfortably around the nose and mouth.

Kinesiology Tape Air System Schematics

(Schematics from the original patent)

Kinesiology tape has built-in air vents between the glue lines, which can be altered for the desired breathability.

The tape has the same elasticity as human skin and moves frictionlessly with the skin in every direction for comfort and effectiveness. The tape is inexpensive, can be easily applied and removed, and you can cut into any shape you like that is comfortable for you. Build unique and fun designs that define you!

Kinesiology Tape And Wrinkles

Habitual facial expression over time can lead to wrinkles as the skin loses elasticity. Frown lines and crow’s feet are common examples and result from repetitive and sustained facial postures.
