Over the past year and a half, the face mask has become a staple in countries across the world, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Labelled as one of the best preventative measures for stopping the spread of the virus, the humble face mask is now a necessity for everyday life. With so many different reusable face masks on the market, how do you choose the right one for you? We help you make this very important decision by highlighting our top four best face masks in terms of popularity, comfort, personalisation and fit. 

What Do The Best Face Masks Have In Common?

1. The first element is safety. To effectively protect yourself, your mask must have layers of material and fits over your nose and mouth. You may also want to look at face masks with a filter.

2. Second is comfort. If you are going to be wearing these masks all day, you need to ensure that they are comfortable, especially where the straps around your ears are concerned. 

3. The third is usability. You want to look for reusable face masks that are of a high quality, have filtration efficiency and are washable face masks. The best face masks are comfortable, fit over your nose and mouth, have more than one layer, are reusable and breathable.

Choosing The Best Face Masks And Coverings For Your Needs

When choosing the best face mask brand for you, you need to consider a few things. 

For example, if you are looking for face masks for your staff or employees, they would need to to be of a high quality, available in the quantity required and brandable. 

If you are looking for a face mask for personal use, you may want to look at options that fit your lifestyle and comfort levels. For example, if you wear glasses, you would need a face mask with a nose wire that you could adjust, so your glasses do not fog up. 

If you are prone to acne, you would want to look at the face masks that help prevent acne – such as a cotton face mask which is breathable and less abrasive on the skin. 

If you are around many people, for example, needing to catch public transport, you would want to ensure your safety with a mask that has a filter and more than one layer of material for that extra protection. 

Many people across Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England have also been looking at different types of masks from N95’s, fashionable face masks, adjustable face masks and more. When choosing the best face masks for your needs, you need to take into consideration who will be wearing them and where they will be wearing them. 

Making this decision can often feel a bit overwhelming, which is why at Garment Printing, we have put together a list of our most popular face masks.
