What is wrong with using face masks?
Air pollution has long been a major public health threat. Increasing public awareness on the harmful air pollutants we breathe outdoors led to the idea of using face masks for protection.With the current emergence of Covid 19, more people were compelled to use face masks more than ever.
However, some of us find discomfort when using face masks. First, prolonged use of mask can irritate sensitive skin. Second, face mask looped around the ears can cause blistering of the skin behind the ears due to friction. Third, some people just don’t like how they look in a face mask.
If these issues bother you, then you should consider an anti-air pollution scarf as an alternative way of protecting yourself from air pollution.
What are the benefits of an anti-air pollution scarf?
An anti-air pollution scarf is a tube scarf that covers the nose and mouth. It has a built-in nanofiber filter that effectively filters harmful air pollutants such as fine particulates, dust, virus and bacteria. Anti-air pollution scarves normally come with an adjustable nose strip. A rear cord provides a good fit for any face size, ensuring that air leaks will be minimal.
Unlike face masks, that can slide down when you move or talk, a scarf stays in place better. Hence, an anti-air pollution scarf is ideal whether your sitting inside an airplane or actively cycling or jogging.The scarf also save your ears from blistering. Furthermore, nanofiber filter exhibits excellent breathability.
