Use this UV-protection face mask this summer to stay fresh

13 Comments

The sudden transition from spring to summer makes it easier to catch colds. In Japan, people wear masks regularly to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. During summer, however, the appeal of wearing masks lessens due to the heat and humidity. It can be stuffy and constricting to wear a mask, especially if it’s 30 degrees Celsius outside.

If you’re looking for a mask to wear this summer, consider buying the Pocket Mask by Hiro Corporation. Launching at the end of June, this mask not only helps you stop the spread of germs but also protects you from harmful UV rays. Additionally, these masks are made with a cool-to-the-touch material to keep the sweat away. The Pocket Mask comes in 10 “tubes” a pack so that you can take it with you anywhere this summer.

Unnecessary and a waste of money.

Unnecessary 

Is it your medical opinion?

I don't need medical experience to know this is not necessary and a waste of money.

The mask is being promoted by a company without the endorsement of any medical organization or association.

I frequently wear a mask when I've got cold or when the air is thick (Canada burned and the smoke made it all the way to my state). But they are hard to wear when it's 95 degrees (F.). So I'd give this a try. As a courtesy to others or protection from various types of pollution (as a courtesy to my self) I would wear a mask anyway. A mask that doesn't make it hard to breathe is something I'd want. If it doesn't work, why, then I wouldn't buy it anymore. Hey, it's looks like it would be stylin' .

Ok, your opinion is noted but I am afraid it will not be very important for the general public -or me- :-)

Don't all masks provide a level of UV protection?

There’s still a lot of unnecessary masks everywhere. I can’t believe that still many students are wearing masks during school. The reason of wearing masks seems not because of preventing viruses but because of belonging to the majority.

No.

I would never wear mask even if they gave it to me for free.

One less thing for you to worry about then. Just move on.

Why you would cover your mouth and restrict breathing in this heat is beyond me

Oh, I do.
