Mrs. Lee’s top priority with masks is that people will wear them properly to avoid discomfort.
He says that if you have trouble breathing in a mask, you may be wearing the wrong type for yourself.
“Choose a mask made from breathable fabrics such as 100% good quality cotton, bamboo or performance polyester that is more breathable,” said Ms Lee.
It is also recommended to use essential oils like peppermint or lavender with the mask to make breathing easier.
It is important that your mask fits properly around the bridge of your nose, otherwise your glasses may get more foggy.

If your ear is injured when you wear a mask, then according to the mother-two, it is also important to fix the problem.
‘Instead of the more common elastic ear loops, use a mask that has an adjustable ear band.’
It also recommends that people who wear glasses pay attention to the way their masks fit their nose bridge.
This will reduce the amount of hot air released and in turn how much fog comes into your glasses.

What are the best tips for keeping yourself and others safe when wearing a mask?
Masks currently have to be worn inside the entire NSW. A fine of $ 200 is to be paid for those caught. The NSW health worker says the mask is a precautionary measure, but hand hygiene and social distance should not be forgotten.
1- Surgical mask has two sides, one white side and one blue side. The outside must show the blue side.
2- Surgical mask also has a top and bottom. However, if the mask is worn properly, you should put wire on top. This is because you can mold the mask into the shape of your nose.
– Ideally, wear them for a maximum of four hours – if they get wet or dull in any way, replace them immediately.
– Try not to touch the mask – you are potentially spreading insects to yourself and others.
They- They should comfortably cover the bottom of your chin.
When taking a mas- mask, do it before hand hygiene and remove the stripes (from the back of your ear) and then immediately remove the mask. Then clean your hands immediately. It sounds pretty easy pulling forward, but then you’re spreading insects.
While the health worker wants people to stay safe, maintain hygiene and understand the basic ‘do’s and don’ts’ of mask wear.
‘It is very important that we emphasize social distance and hand hygiene. The masks have been introduced as an additional measure, ‘he said.
He told the Daily Mail Australia that the way the mask fits is imperative, and explained that it should pass from the bridge of your nose to the bottom of your chin.
He also said that the mask needs to be changed every four hours, if it is wet or ‘dirty’ or if you take it off for some reason.
If the washable mask has also been removed it needs to be replaced. Touching them can spread the virus anywhere else on the mask.
It can infect you if it is on the outside, or it can infect others if you are sick.
