The most stylish face masks from your favourite brands.
After several months of lockdown and a nationwide feeling of cabin fever, the world is finally starting to reopen. Not long ago, bars, hairdressers and shops opened their doors to the public, and soon – to the delight of many fitness fans – gyms will be following suit.
The World Health Organisation have said that exercising with a mask on makes it damp and harder to breathe. In most UK gyms, including PureGym and David Lloyd, you don’t need to wear a mask but you can if you want to.
The beauty of buying a mask from a fitness brand is that many of them use the same sweat-wicking material that is in their clothes to remove dampness, so whether you’re headed out running or looking for an extra comfy covering for your trip to the shops, here are our favourite.
Falke Face Mask
An elasticated and quick-drying mask for comfort, this Falke covering has moisture repelling layer on the outside and a moisture absorbing layer on the inside for peace of mind.
Under Armour Sportsmask
The Under Armour Sportsmask’s unique three-layer model is designed for maximum breathability and comfort while training. It is reusable, water-resistant, and cool to the touch, and features a unique anti-microbial technology called PROTX2™ that prevents the growth and spread of bacteria.
