The first thing you can do is try to find face masks that are the most comfortable for you. Certain drugstore masks feel high-end despite their affordable prices, so this might be a nice place to begin your search. Double masking may help protect you, too, especially with cloth masks, so investing in comfortable ones will ensure you wear them!
According to E! News, the key to being comfortable may simply lie in extender straps. These attach to your masks and allow you to better fit them to your face. E! even notes that they prevent your makeup from smudging. A win-win in our book! Similarly, the publication recommends investing in face-protective mask liners. These most notably prevent you from developing maskne, so your skincare routine isn’t for naught.
If you don’t want to purchase extender straps, BestLife recommends tying the ear loops on your mask to better fit your face. This is a free way to make your masks more comfortable, and if they’re tighter, you’re better protected. For extra protection, make a filter for your mask out of coffee filters or similar materials. Once inserted, it’s an extra layer of protection between you and the virus. Change these out every now and then to ensure you’re properly protected.
Finally, for everyone with glasses, this one’s for you. According to BestLife, you can take a single drop of dish soap and rub it onto both sides of your glasses. Then, once rinsed off, an invisible shield will be present on your glasses, causing them to not fog up for a while. Who knew?
