No one would have predicted it this time last year, but the humble face mask has become 2020’s must-have (literally in most cases) fashion accessory. With face masks compulsory on all public transport and in all stores in the UK, if you have to wear one, you may as well do it in style.
Looking for a different type of reusable face mask?
While cloth masks don’t offer the same benefits as a P2 or N95 mask, they can stop the particles that are released when you cough or sneeze from travelling too far in the air.
They are also a great reminder to stop touching your face, which the World Health Organization has said is important in preventing the transfer of the virus from surfaces to your nose, eyes or mouth.
It’s important to remember that wearing a face mask will not make you immune from COVID-19 infection and that you should still adhere to social distancing requirements and hygiene practices.
How to wear a face mask safely
To ensure your safety and the safety of those around you, it’s important to wear your face mask properly. According to the World Health Organization, this means washing or sanitising your hands before touching your mask and adjusting the mask so that there are no gaps on the sides of your face.
You should also avoid touching the mask while you are wearing it and clean your hands before and after using it. The mask should be stored in a reusable bag until you are able to wash it with soap or detergent, which you should do once a day.
