It is recommended that we all wear face masks to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. In fact, many businesses will deny you entry if you are not wearing one.
Disposable masks can be itchy and irritate the face. It can be a problem for those with sensitive and problem skin as they keep in moisture and create a breeding ground for bacteria.
Effort’s Eco-Essentials has designed super soft and comfortable bamboo face masks that will not irritate your skin. Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and will help ward of harmful microbes that can exacerbate many skin conditions such as acne and eczema. The bamboo material is moisture wicking, preventing you from feeling hot and sweaty. It is breathable with good ventilation, so you will not feel the urge to remove it. Bamboo fabric is odor resistant which is a bonus when wearing something covering the nose and mouth!
The double layer design does not put pressure on your nose and the spandex bands fit comfortably behind the ears. The double layer creates a barrier helping to minimize the spread of droplets.
These masks are washable so you can use them repeatedly. The durable bamboo fabric keeps it shape after many washes and it is suggested that you wash the mask after each use. The great thing about this is that bamboo fabric gets softer with each wash! If your mask is comfortable, you will be more likely to wear it every time you leave the house.
With a shortage of N95 surgical grade masks, the best thing we can do is opt for a fabric mask and leave the others for the frontline workers. These masks will not prevent you from getting the virus, but they may help reduce the spread to others around you. Many people are asymptomatic and are not even aware that they have the virus. Wearing a mask shows you care about others safety as well as your own. The sooner we slow the spread of the virus the quicker we can get back to normal.
