So you’ve got yourself an awesome OxyArmour mask - we’re so excited for you! Here are some things to keep in mind when wearing your mask.
Do’s and Don’ts of face masks:
One of the main goals of wearing a mask is to stop you from touching your face. We didn’t realise how much we subconsciously touched our face until we started wearing masks - it’s a lot! Don’t worry if you find it difficult at first, it’ll take some time to get used to.
If you are going to touch your mask, make sure to wash your hands or sanitise thoroughly beforehand. Try to only touch the ear loops of the mask if possible.
Have your face mask adjusted to fit your face snuggly - don’t leave it loose, or with gaps around the sides of your face. Keep your nose, mouth and chin inside your mask.
Don’t pull your mask down to talk - you’ve got it on for a reason!
Avoid wearing masks that are soiled, or have damage like holes. Don’t share masks between people, even if you think they are washed and clean.
How to care for your OxyArmour mask:
When you’re not wearing your mask, keep it in a clean ziploc bag or plastic container.
As a general rule of thumb, we recommend washing your mask after each daily use. You can wash your mask by hand using warm water, or through a warm machine wash cycle in a delicates bag.
Once you’ve washed your mask, it’s best to let it dry in a warm environment or out in the sun.
It’s a good idea to have more than one mask - that way, you can rotate between the washing/drying and the wearing of your masks. We like to keep a spare mask in our bags at all times, just in case!
It looks like masks are here to stay, so stay safe and stylish!
