We all hope that this pandemic will be coming to an end very soon and that we can toss our face masks for good but it looks like they’ll be here to stay for a while. If you have problems with your face mask, here are some suggestions for making your face mask more comfortable, pleasant and hygienic to wear. Plus, a reader emailed in with a tip I wanted to share with you all. Here’s his message to me:

Johnny Jet-
Love your newsletter and repartee with Leo Laporte. I ordered some foldable N95 masks through your newsletter Amazon link and they work great. I’ve also got some reusable SoftFoot brand 3D Mask Bracket Internal Support Frames.  These support frames make the N95 far more comfortable to use.  This 3D version has side clips which makes it necessary to be loose inside the N95.  It still works great but it can fall out if the N95 is removed.  There are other support frames that can be secured to the N95. You might include a secure able support frame along with your N95 recommendation.

Thanks again and cheers,
Tom P

Thanks for the tip, Tom! I’ve heard lots of people recommend face mask brackets to help keep your face mask lifted slightly off of your face for easier breathing. They can also be helpful to prevent makeup from smudging and if you have sensitive skin and are prone to breakouts, these can help as well. You can buy a package of five mask brackets here on Amazon for $8 (at the time of publication.)
