Gone are the days when our top face mask search was one that was conducted in order to find the best face mask for self-care Sunday or recipes for homemade concoctions to help keep our skin glowing... Ok, maybe we still search for those things too. But, like it or not, face masks that help keep us safe from airborne diseases and infections are now a part of our everyday lives.
So for those of us who now find ourself in the position of having to procure a mask and wear it (in some cases for hours on end) what are the best options out there?
We have rounded up our top picks for re-usable masks below! (note these are NON-SURGICAL face masks)
(and please don't wear it under your nose... it defeats the object of the mask)
