  2. Samer Jaber:

    Just be careful, as your skin in that area will likely be sensitive and topical acne treatments can make this more irritated and even worse. FOGGY GLASSES Since face masks trap the breath and foster moist, humid environments, glasses wearersmay have noticed that wearing a face mask can cause your lenses to fog. In a 2011 study from the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, researchers advised washing the glasses with soapy water immediately before wearing a face mask. Face masks trap the breath and foster humidity so glasses wearers may have noticed that wearing a face mask can cause the lenses to fog. (iStock) After shaking off any excess water, let the spectacles air dry or gently dry off the lenses with a soft tissue before putting them back on. Now the spectacle lenses should not mist up when the face mask is worn, they wrote. Glasses fog because humidity can escape the mask and move upward, coming into contact with the lenses and causing them to fog. Placing a tissue under the top of your face mask can also help absorb some of the droplets, leading to clear lenses. Wearing a mask that can form to the bridge of your nose one with wire, for instance can help prevent the warm air from your mouth from reaching your lenses.

But Jaber also recommends carrying hand moisturizer for use after washing and drying your hands, suggesting a cream or an ointment rather than a lotion, as lotions are usually thinner and often contain alcohol. Experts advise carrying hand moisturizer for use after washing and drying your hands. (iStock) Lotions can be great, but creams or ointments are thicker. Vaseline is an ointment, and it really locks things in.
