Face masks are more than fun accessories; you need them to keep yourself safe from viruses and illnesses that are transmitted from person to person. When you’re buying a cotton face mask, make sure you’re investing in something that’s functional and fits well. Then, you can have some fun with different patterns, colors, and styles.

Look for a mask that will fit your entire face from the nose to the chin. It’s important to keep your nostrils and your mouth covered completely. You also want to buy a mask that will fit. Those with elastic bands that fit around the ears will provide for flexibility and securely sit on different face sizes.

Once you know the face covering you’ve selected will fit well and provide the protection you’re looking for, it’s time to get creative. Choose your favorite colors, invest in eclectic patterns, or wear masks that match your clothes.
