After much sampling and testing I've finally found a mask that I can wear for the whole day.
The smooth polyester lining is soft against the skin and does not give off fluff that could irritate your nose and throat. It is fused with a stiff cotton fusing that creates a domed breathing space and traps any moisture away from the face.
For the outer layer I've tried selecting prints that are interesting yet neutral so that you can pair them with many different outfits.
A padded wire runs across the cheekbones. This allows you to shape the mask to your face to keep safe and prevent your glasses from misting up.
Because we are all a bit different I've included different ties and elastics for you to experiment with. I will be posting tutorial videos on my social media, but they are fairly self-explanatory.
There are wide and narrow elastics that loop around the head and are adjustable to fit your head perfectly.
Round elastic that loop around your ears and can be adjusted with a slipknot.
Wash your mask, before use and after every wear. Smoosh it around in a bit of warm soapy water and rinse, or just chuck it in the washing machine, dry it in a sunny spot. Cool iron if required, but don’t touch the elastic as it will melt
