What Five things to consider when choosing a face mask?

“There’s nothing more important than our good health – that’s our principal capital asset,” said Arlen Specter, an American lawyer, author and politician who served as a United States Senator from Pennsylvania from 1981 to 2011.

With the outbreak of COVID-19, lots of people got affected and it also put a bad impact on the country’s economy. Well, the government has suggested that you should wear a mask to prevent yourself from virus transmission. UV Face Mask is ideal for anyone who wants to keep their breathing safe from any potential viruses or bacteria. UV Face Mask is a mask that uses ultraviolet light to sterilize air. It has been developed to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of a mask in protecting consumers from harmful pollutants and viruses that are easily spread.

Here are five things to consider when choosing a face mask:

Best Fitting:

Find a mask that can easily fit your face properly. Well, if you are going to choose a respirator mask, just make sure that when to get the mask it should snugly over your nose and under your chin. One thing to keep in mind is that the disposable respirators come in a fixed size so it is suggested to not let small children wear them.

If are going to use a surgical mask, they are not completely fit your face they leave some gap over your nose bridge but if find a way to close the air gap over your nose bridge then you can use them easily.

Breathability:

Well, try to buy a mask that allows you to breathe easily. If the mask does not offer you better breathability while wearing them then avoid using such types of masks or else it will cause trouble to you.

You can use woven cotton, cotton-polyester blends, or linen fabric face masks that offer nice breathing while wearing them and you can wash them and reuse them anytime. If you have a mask made of fleece avoid using them as they will not provide better filtering like other masks.

Ear Loops or Elastic Bands:

If you want to get more coverage are without buying any additional masks then the best thing to do will be to get a mask with a strap extender, it’s the best idea. These masks are made in such a design that will not put much pressure on your ears and you will be able to cover a lot more area of your face.

Moisture Wicking:

Well, if you use the fabrics like spandex or polyester, they are made up of soft stretch materials and these types of masks can help you to remove the moisture from your skin and helps you to stay cool every time. But the most important thing is to stay away from getting infected is to wear a mask and maintain social distancing.

Durability:

If you are trying to make your own mask then make sure to choose a soft and strong fabric like cotton because it will provide you better fitting, comfort and it can stay for a longer time. Also, you can reuse them after washing them.
