How to Choose the qualification Face Mask.
There are so many kinds face mask in the market
How to Choose the right face mask.
There are some important elements to consider
These masks are usually very comfortable on the face. But their straps go behind the head and not around the ears, which is less practical for many users.so if you have this worried, you should choose one earloop masks
This mask is usually very comfortable but the plastic edges can leave skin indentations which last longer than other softer masks.
- Air leaking
There is very little leaking if the metal nose bridge is properly pinched together.
This mask is not quite as snug as some others and I did occasionally smell street odors.
I found it very comfortable to breathe while biking, especially if the model has an exhalation valve.
The fabric gets soggy during exercise. I also found it harder to take deeper breaths.
I had no problems during biking or jogging with this mask and still felt able to catch a breath.
- Fog factor
I had very little fogging of my glasses with a good seal around the nose.
Sometimes the nose fit isn’t perfect and my eyeglasses fog up.
The mask can last at least a few days of use before losing effectiveness.
The mask itself can last for years, and you just pop in a new filter every few days.
I only strongly recommend truly N95-certified masks such as 3M and Vogmask.
The only masks that are worth buying are the N95 type.
If you want to protect yourself against the minuscule particles you’ll need professional masks. Very pricy and inconvenient to wear.
After about 2-3 weeks of use, the mask looks horribly grey!!
Many masks aren’t good for heavy breathing such as I would do while running.
It sometimes takes a bit of fine tuning the metal nose clip for a good seal.
Air pollution is such a serious issue that we really need to stick with the best masks — with proven results from independent labs, not just TV advertorials and website testimonials.
Can I buy N95 masks on Amazon?
N95 masks are no longer available to the public on Amazon.
Instead, they’re saved for exclusive use by hospital and government agencies. You can find cloth masks on Amazon,
which are an alternative for everyday use by the public.
But it is not useful to anti-virus
