Times have changed, and fast! A month ago, most of us probably didn’t consider face masks as part of our ensemble when getting dressed for the day. Now, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, they’re an indispensable item — at least, if you’d like to go into a store, ride public transportation, or engage in any other activities in proximity to people.
Social distancing and wearing masks are going to be part of our new reality for a while, so why not make the most of it? You might as well have the best face mask you can possibly find. To that end, we’ve rounded up a selection of masks for every member of your family — even mask-resistant husbands and fashion-conscious teenagers.
By wearing a mask, you not only protect yourself, you protect others, and help flatten the curve of this pandemic. Even better, you can look good and feel comfortable doing it! So keep scrolling to find the best face mask for you.

Best Mask for Glasses-Wearers
If you struggle with your glasses fogging up when you wear a mask, you need this Vida mask. It features a built-in metal nose piece, so it fits snugly on your face. This not only helps keep your glasses clear, it also keeps you from having to constantly touch your mask to adjust it. These are made with two layers of cotton and a filter between them, which should be changed every week. They fit adults and kids ages five and up, come in a variety of colors, and are super-affordable!

Best Masculine Mask
Does the man in your life need a mask that’s a little bit rugged, like him? This Sanctuary mask (which also features a nose wire, for a secure fit), comes in a pack with an assortment of masculine patterns: black camo, dark green camo, and a bandanna print (as seen on Ben Affleck!).

Best Fashion-Forward Mask
Animal prints are a classic look — we feel sure that Audrey Hepburn would have sported a leopard-print face mask along with her little black dress.

Your teenage daughters (and your inner teenager) will love these!
