FIVE THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN PROTECTIVE FACE MASKS

Tuesday 07 Jul 2020

Covid-19 has radically changed how we live our lives and one of the many adjustments has been the need to wear face masks

Whether going to work, picking up kids from school or just running to the grocery store, we always need to have them on us. It’s easy to get lost in the range of mask currently available, so here are 5 tips for choosing a good face mask for you.

1

Fit for purpose

First and foremost, the protective masks must comply with current health and safety standards. Nobody should favour a pretty mask over an effective one. Remember that the objective is to protect both you and others!

2

Breathable fabric

Summer is coming and wearing a mask can be warm, making breathing difficult. If possible, opt for a lightweight and breathable fabric that will reduce irritation and discomfort on the hottest days.

 

3

Tailor-made for you

Avoid touching the mask as much as possible, to avoid contaminating it. A mask that is too wide or too narrow may be uncomfortable and irritate our skin by moving constantly. Remember to choose the mask that best fits your facial features.

Cloth design

Walking through any shopping centre, you have probably noticed those store windows filled with colourful and creative masks. Try out designs that match your personality – but make sure they’re compliant!

OOTD (Outfit Of The Day)

Companies are quickly picking up on this trend, and now there’s a mask for every style and occasion, matching with different outfits. So, if you like your accessories to match your clothes, you can still look and feel cool while using your protective face mask!
