Benefits of Face Masks or Mask Sheets
Sheet masks have become a huge craze during the COVID-19 pandemic. Almost everyone on Instagram has posted a “sheet mask selfie” at some point, and if you see a popular celebrity do it, you know it’s on trend. But anyway, do sheet masks actually provide our faces with anything but a photo op? Here’s what you need to know before you go out and buy a pack for yourself.
What Are Sheet Masks?
The sheet masks from SpiderTech are designed from our original kinesiology tape, so it is elastic, breathable and 100% cotton. Our sheet masks are comfortable to wear for long hours and are flexible, so you can go through your day with little to no irritation.
Compared to other face masks, you won’t have to struggle with straps or worry about your glasses constantly fogging up. All you need to do is peel off the outer liner, place a filter in the middle of the mask (optional), then stick it over your mouth and nose.
Their best feature is that it provides a full seal, unlike regular cotton masks. This is great because it prevents your glasses from fogging up and it keeps out almost all bacteria. When you use a SpiderTech sheet mask with a filter, it has a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency of over 99%. Another great feature of our strapless face masks is that you can use them all day and reuse them if you take it off for less than 10 minutes. If you do reuse them, the glue may become less sticky, depending on how often you touch it and the condition of your skin (for example, if your skin is oily or if you wear make-up).
How Do SpiderTech Face Masks Compare To A N95 Mask?
A lot of people ask us about how our face masks compare to the N95 and other respirator masks. Our mask and respirator masks are completely different, they cannot be compared. When you wear a SpiderTech mask, it acts like a “shield” that adds a protective barrier for your mouth and nose. An N95 or other respirator mask filters air when you breathe in and out.
If you are having any difficulty with normal breathing when the face mask is fully closed, you can leave the seal at the bottom open. Although this will allow potentially more air to enter the mask, it still provides excellent protection and you will be able to breathe easier.
Applying our strapless face mask is very easy, even if it’s your first time using one! And keep in mind that you can reuse the masks throughout the day, but the glue can lose its stickiness every time you take off and reapply your mask.
