Its that time of the year again… Back to school! This year will be different than any other year. Our kids will need to add a face mask to their school supply list. I found some of the best face masks that will add personality to any outfit and protection for their little faces. I even bought them for my teens!
Does it matter what kind of mask you wear?
Absolutely it does!
When it comes to the highest level of protection, N95 respirators win. Surgical grade masks follow closely behind. However, these are mostly used and needed by healthcare workers who need them. Since the supply is limited, we should find other alternatives that are just as protective.
That’s why I wanted to write this blog post!
We found the best reusable face mask for your teen that is also inexpensive and eco friendly.
Want a little life hack to know if your face mask will protect you? Put on the face mask and try to blow out a flame. If you CAN NOT blow it out while wearing it, you have the right one!
There are so many different face masks on the market right now. Different styles, materials, shapes and sizes. It’s hard to know which ones to get for optimal protection.
Take a look at my favorites! They are all:
- 100% cotton face mask
- Soft cotton material
- Washable & reusable
- Comfortable & easy to wear
- One size fits most
- Offers protection indoors and outdoors.

Black is so simple and classic. You know what they say… black make you look slimmer. I wonder if that applies to your face as well??
Last but not least, this is a great choice for guys or teens who want a solid classic variety pack. Some people don’t want the color and designs. They just want to grab and go. I can totally understand that!
Here are some informational articles from the CDC about face masks. Make sure you discuss these topics with your children before they go back to school so they understand why they need to wear a mask in some situations and how they can protect themselves and others.
