Lately there has been much discussion about the effectiveness of face masks. Considering many people have been wearing face coverings for decades, the idea is all around justifiable. Humans have polluted the air to extreme levels and protecting your lungs and mouth from harmful allergens, bacteria, chemicals, etc. has many benefits.

People who are more active would therefore breathe more intensely whilst outside may find wearing a face mask long term to inhibit proper breathing. It may take some time to get used to regularly wearing a covering. Using protective face masks indoors can also protect you from mold which is difficult to detect and can also cause lasting damage to your lungs.

Therefore we recommend you wear a face mask at all times in public but make sure to choose reusable and regularly dispense of them or rotate washable face masks. Protecting the air you breathe is a good idea.
