Face Masks: Do They Work And Which To Get?

Stay Safe, Stay Steezy.


Face masks are the accessory pretty much everyone has been sporting. Wearing a face mask cannot completely protect you from the COVID-19, as the virus can penetrate through masks and is still able to enter through the eyes, however, they do offer an extra layer of protection when making essential trips. 

At Prague’s Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design Studios, students made hundreds of face masks to send out to hospitals, retirement homes and volunteers. People are even getting creative at home, making their own face masks. If you’re stuck for ideas, here are a few of our favorites: 


The Dyspy Drip Mask by Dyspnea

These face masks are super cute but are more of a statement piece than protective wear. They come with the warning ‘Highly recommended for being siic AF but not recommended for medical procedures.’ These definitely won’t protect you from COVID-19 but would be the ultimate finish to a festival look.
