Best face masks to buy in India
Mask up - it's the first step to fight the Covid-19 virus. From scientists, researchers to healthcare authorities, all advise wearing a face mask if you're out and around people, and it's a widely known fact now. What's still not known to many is if their mask is effective enough to serve the purpose.

How to select a mask that protects you from Covid-19?

Starting with the basics, you must go for a mask that covers your nose and mouth completely and fits snugly against your face leaving no gaps on the sides.

Choose a mask that has a nose wire to cover the top and sides of the nose properly. Also, don't buy masks made of hard-to-breather material like vinyl, go for a mask with two or more layers of breathable and washable fabric. Don't get the ones that have valves or vents to allow air passage.
