Wearing a face mask has become part of our ‘new normal’ way of life

In fact, wearing a face mask can literally save your life as it can help protect you from COVID-19.

Face masks have become a huge trend and this fashion accessory is being made in a wide range of beautiful colours and prints that make an instant statement.

Many people, including me, have misplaced their face masks many times or just wished they had somewhere to put it when eating out. Well thank goodness for face mask chains!

What are face mask chains you may ask? Basically, they are face masks with chains attached to them. The great thing about them is that they help everyone, young and old, to keep track of their face mask.

According to today.com, experts are in favour of this new trend and believe it can encourage people to wear face masks for longer.

Daniel Morgan, M.D., a professor of epidemiology and public health and infectious disease at the University of Maryland School of Medicine told TODAY: “I’m in favor of any accessory that makes a mask more comfortable or appealing to wear. It will encourage people to wear their masks for longer periods of time and help prevent the spread of infection.”
