Breathe easier in the heat
The last thing you want to do is wear more things than you need to! Living with this virus, places are encouraging the public to wear a mask. If you haven’t found your perfect one, look no further! Our mask is one that you’ll want to wear.
The luxurious mulberry silk doesn’t exacerbate skin issues and is a pleasure to wear–and fashionable, to boot!
What makes a good mask?
The modelling shows that the N95 mask gives the best protection, but any face covering you use consistently is a good mask. When looking for a mask to best protect you, look at the fit, materials and its ability to carry a filter!
Look for fit
A mask should fully cover your nose and mouth and provide a tight seal to protect yourself and others from droplets carrying COVID-19. Our mulberry silk face mask has a metal fitting on the nose bridge to create a better fit as well as adjustable ear straps to shape the mask for a close fit.
A better fit decreases the chances you’ll have of touching the mask, which may be contaminated while you’re using it throughout the day.
To put on the mask, position your nose and mouth into the covering and use the loops to fasten it onto your face. Adjust at the nose bridge and ear loops for a better fit and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer when you’re finished. Grab hold of the ear loops and sliding the mask off your face when you want to take it off.
Be picky about materials
Ensure that the materials in your non-medical mask are breathable. This is especially important for those who are immunocompromised or have respiratory conditions, such as asthma or COPD. Natural fabrics are great to use and don’t impede breathing as much as synthetic materials. Our silk non-medical face mask is a great choice especially for summer.
Silk’s lightweight breathability will make it a material that you’ll want to wear, even on the hottest days. Not only does it complement an outfit, but it also doesn’t hurt your skin or cause maskne!
Make sure your non-medical masks are easy to wash and wash it after every use. The silk in our non-medical face mask can be easily washed either by hand or by machine! Drying is a breeze too–air dry or tumble dry on low for 10 minutes!
Get a filter
Filters can provide an extra level of protection for your mask. Our non-medical face mask has an inner pocket to allow for a filter.A great filter will strike a balance of protecting you from particles while still allowing for easy breathing. If you don’t want to buy a filter, you don’t need to. To save money, look at what you have at home: a fitted coffee filter or paper towel will add an extra layer of protection. Whatever filter you choose to use, make sure to replace your filter often!
