Try this simple trick to make your mask fit better




Wearing a mask has become an essential part of our lives, so much so that people have started to match them with their outfit. It seems like they have finally accepted that it will take a while for things to go back to normal and this is the only possible way to protect oneself from getting infected.


Being a respiratory disease, coronavirus spreads through respiratory droplets which are suspended in the air by an infected person while coughing, sneezing or talking. Masks prevent you from inhaling the droplets, thereby reducing the risk of infection by 50 per cent.

The only thing you need to be careful about while wearing a mask is that it should cover your nose and mouth properly. Several times it has been noticed that people's masks are too tight, making them feel suffocated or too loose, increasing the risk of infection. This is more common if you are using a surgical mask. However, there is a way to fix your loose mask to make them fit your face properly.
