Types of Face Masks
A medical face mask is also called a medical facial mask and is usually designed to be worn only by medical professionals during health procedures. The term masks may refer to all medical face masks or it may have to do with the type of mask that the wearer wears. For example, a face shield can be used in conjunction with a full face mask for protection of the nose, eyes, mouth, and cheeks.
The face shield is the simplest type of facial mask. It consists of two pieces of plastic with a thick, thin, elastic band placed over the upper and lower parts of the face to provide adequate coverage. Some face shields also come equipped with a chin strap and a mouth guard. Most face shields are made from polyethylene, but they may also be made of vinyl or neoprene.
A full face mask consists of a face shield and an eye mask. The face shield is either attached directly to the face with an elastic band or is worn on the face by putting it over the nose, cheek, and mouth. Some full face masks also contain a chin strap and mouth guard.
An eye mask is a type of mask that covers the eyes. There are two different types of eye masks, an air mask and a plastic-backed mask. Plastic-backed masks are most popular because they do not need a mouth guard and cannot be removed.
One form of mask is a face-shaped mask. This mask looks like a mouth piece that is placed on the top half of the face. Some are square and others are oblong or heart-shaped. The nose is usually covered with a clear plastic shield. Some masks may include an eye mask that covers the eye.
When choosing a full face mask or a face shield, look for one that fits your facial features well. For instance, if you have a round face, a square or oval shape will fit better than one that is more rectangular. It is also a good idea to choose one that is easy to clean since you will be putting it on your face for a long period of time.
The full face mask and the eye mask may also be combined with a full face helmet, face shield and mouth guard. The full face helmet or face shield can be attached to the helmet or mask, while the mouth guard is worn on the top of the cheekbone and around the mouth. The full face helmet is considered to be a safety equipment, whereas the eye mask may not be for aesthetic reasons but serves as protection from the sun.
Face mask is an important protection when taking part in extreme sports or activities such as skiing or snowboarding. They are available in several different styles and colors. For women, it may be a good idea to wear a pink, blue or green face shield while men may wear a red, orange or yellow. The face shield and helmet must not make a woman’s look feminine and should not clash with her clothing.
