Gyms and fitness studios are slowly beginning to reopen (at reduced capacity) across the country. But before you go back, you’ll need one new piece of workout gear: a face mask fit for a workout.
Safety should always been the number one priority, but the idea of working out while wearing a mask is bound to trigger two concerns: sweat and smell. They’re both valid and luckily, both easy to address with a workout mask designed to ensure you don’t feel like you’re going for a run with someone’s sweaty palm clamped over your mouth.
Picking up a separate mask to wear while working out will not only help ensure you’re more comfortable but will also help prevent skin irritation and “maskne” that can come from having sweat and bacteria trapped against your skin. Always wash your mask — and your face — after every workout.
Here are nine masks to help keep you safe during your next sweat session.
