Face masks are now mandatory for all adults on all public transport here in Ireland.
And let’s be clear, from a perspective of health and slowing down the spread of Covid-19, it makes no difference what your face mask looks like as long as it covers your mouth, nose and chin. But if you are anything like us, we are seeing masks with new eyes these days, fully preparing to embrace them as a bit of a fashion statement, no?
And if this sounds like you too (and you are tired of the blue paper version), here are 5 seriously cute face masks to invest in now:
1. Non-Medical Face Covering 3pk – Multi-Coloured
This is a non-medical face covering and not PPE. Each set of three has a mystery mix of Boden vibrant colours and prints and a wire across the nose so you can fit them to your face. Even better? These masks are made these using the ends of fabric rolls so they’re planet-friendly, too.
2. Female Linen Face Mask
Made from sustainable 100% Irish linen, which is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-allergenic, these masks are soft and suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Comfortable and breathable, naturally dirt-repellent, these double-layered linen masks with elasticated loops will sit perfectly behind the ears.
