As the world is gripped with the Covid-19 fear, the importance of hand sanitizers, masks and gloves have gone up massively.

It has therefore been deemed that wearing masks when outside is of utmost importance.

But selecting a mask from the plethora of options available in the market is easier than it sounds, only if certain points are taken into consideration. In this blog we’ll help you buy the best mask for yourself and your family to help you fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Multiple Layers

The most basic and simplest tip- More the layers, better protection it provides. Higher the number of layers present, it would be more difficult for pollutant particles to enter your mask and infect you. So try and shop for masks that have multiple layers present in them, more preferably if it has filtration layers in it.
