How Face Mask Accessories Help You Stay Cool
Face masks have been used for centuries for various facial skin care purposes. They have remained popular through the years mainly because of their effectiveness. Face masks have evolved from the use of oils, herbs and spices. Currently, they are available in a variety of styles, patterns and textures.
A cloth face mask, also known as a facial mask, is a thin mask placed over the nose and mouth, composed primarily of common cooking oil, sometimes with other ingredients. Typically, when available, face masks are made with natural or synthetic materials, and are often uncomfortable to wear, due to distancing from the face. However, when comfortable, they provide good cleansing and healing effects on the skin. While cloth masks aren’t as comfortable as spa or salon masks, they are a much more economical solution.
In recent years, new materials for masks have appeared on the market, including natural fibers such as cotton or hemp. Many of these new materials are very comfortable to wear, due to the breathable qualities of the fabric used. Also, some brands now include exhalation valves that allow you to release air from your nose by blowing through a valve at the back of the mask. These exhalation valves provide the most ventilation possible for the wearer. The majority of modern masks still contain one or two exhalation valves. These should be inspected regularly for any leaks or other problems, in order to maintain proper breathing conditions.
Wash cloth masks can be reused after being used on dirty or irritated skin, but most will not. Some brands of face washes and masks include a feature that allows you to easily rinse the mask off, with warm water. However, in most cases, washing the mask off with warm water will remove the best cleaning agents. If using a washing machine, make sure that it is a gentle cycle, using the gentle cycle only on fabric made from natural fibers, such as cotton.
When selecting a brand of mask, look for one that features an automatic shut-off mechanism. This will ensure that the mask can be removed from your face without the risk of it becoming caught in hair, trapping your head in an uncomfortable position. Check that the mask has an opening on its side that will allow you to manually release the mask from your face, without puncturing it. In addition, if you frequently breathe through your nose, check that the mask’s opening is large enough to allow you to comfortably breathe through your nose, without creating a blockage.
Some manufacturers have gone to the extreme and have developed a sweat guard that attaches to the face masks themselves. This attachment can be removed easily and quickly, while maintaining an airtight seal. A popular use for this type of accessory is during sports where you sweat a lot, for example, during a game. When you are wearing a sweat guard, the sweat just beads up against the guard, allowing your skin underneath to dry. As an added benefit, many of these accessories have built-in air circulation systems that will let you enjoy a cool, comfortable, and refreshing airflow. Wearing these accessories while participating in sports allows you to stay as cool as the game requires, even while you are sweating!
