We all know masks reduce the transmission of COVID, but they also have some other life-changing benefits.
Ok, surely by now we all know that wearing a mask helps lower the chances of transferring viruses and infections with a growing number of studies proving its effectiveness in slowing the spread of coronavirus.
"There's no question; it's indisputable that wearing even a cloth face covering cuts down substantially on the amount of virus that's shared by an individual,” says Professor Ron Waldman from George Washington University (GWU) Milken Institute School of Public Health.
Masks create a simple physical barrier that reduces respiratory droplets from reaching others.
The thing is though, there's a bunch of other benefits of wearing a mask. Read on, my friend.
You don't have to do full face of makeup!
Slap on some mascara and brush out your brows, and you're in business! You're not only saving time BUT saving money too cos' you're not using as much product.
You can mouth profanities at your boss without them knowing.
Stuck in a meeting with your stupid boss and his stupid face? Release your frustrations by tell them EXACTLY what you think under your breath. They won't know - hopefully - and you'll feel mega empowered!
It doesn't matter if you've got stuff in your teeth.
Say goodbye to the awkwardness of having a full conversation with someone and then glancing at your reflection to see you've got a chunk of spinach making itself at home in your chompers. With a mask, you can strategically keep little specs of food scattered through your teeth for an emergency snack and NO ONE will know.
Colleagues can't smell the alcohol on your breath...
Who said that? Drink responsibly.
Your pesky hayfever symptoms will subside.
Just as a mask acts as a defensive barrier against infection, it also creates a wall between your sensitive sinus system and those tiny pollen and dust particles. Experts have noted since mask wearing became commonplace due to COVID, many people have fewer symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
