Frontline workers, including nurses, are some of the most important people fighting the spread of COVID-19. When nurse turned model Maggie Rawlins saw the need for additional support, she left her modeling career on hold in L.A. to help hospitals in NYC with the treatment of COVID-19.
Since then, Maggie has been wearing a mask for 12 hours a day while working at the hospital. Long hours and a change in routine can wreak havoc on your skin. This is especially true for sensitive areas like lips, hands, and behind the ears. So when Harper’s BAZAAR caught up with Maggie about her nightly skincare routine, it was no surprise that Bag Balm is one of her essential daily products.
“I use this on not only on my lips, but on my cuticles, and then behind my ears as well. My skin behind my ears the first couple of weeks got really irritated,” says Maggie of wearing her personal protective equipment (PPE) 12+ hours every day.
The full-time model has been volunteering with the OneWorld Health organization for the past five years and although she was scouted to model at just 16 years old, Maggie chose to continue her education by working in hematology-oncology before taking on modeling full time.
“My routine has changed a little bit over the last few months. I’ve spent the last three weeks working in New York as a nurse. I thought this was kind of the perfect time for me to get back to New York and help out the city that has been so good to me.”

Not only does it help with keeping hands from getting overly dry from washing, but it helps protect skin from excessive friction caused by masks and other PPE equipment.
