While wearing a face mask might not be an entirely comfortable experience, you can make it a little easier by wearing masks that include wire in the nose area. By popping a little piece of wire over the bridge of the nose, it allows you to mould the mask to your face, ensuring a more snug fit.
This makes it more comfortable when wearing glasses (and should result in less fog in your glasses!), while also helping to protect you by keeping any nasties out of your mask. The closer the mask sits to your face, the better. And, to make sure you’re considering the environment when purchasing new masks, try to opt for reusable masks that can be washed and worn again and again.
Masks will continue to be a part of our lives for a while yet, so if you’re lacking in the mask department (because old fabric masks can become a bit ratty after a while), here are some of the best reusable, washable masks on the market that also include the all important nose wire.
