What happens if you wear the mask reversely


 Mainly have the following effects. Many people in life feel that wearing a mask reversed is not a problem, and there is no need to worry, but in fact, wearing a mask reversed to a medical mask is a problem, which will cause the mask to fail to protect and increase the possibility of respiratory tract infections. The main reason is that masks are generally divided into inner layer, middle layer, and outer layer. The material of each layer of mask is different. Generally, the outer layer is made of waterproof material, the inner layer is made of filtering and isolating material, and the inner layer is skin-friendly. The skin-friendly material with the reversed outer layer can not provide protection, so it will slowly penetrate in, and the mask loses its protective effect. Secondly, wearing a mask will make the human body feel that breathing is not smooth, that is, airtight and uncomfortable, because the outer material is not water-absorbing, and the water exhaled by the person will condense, which may cause respiratory diseases.


White disposable mask with rope facing in or out


 Outward facing. Generally, white disposable mask ropes are designed to face outwards, because the outward-facing design is convenient to wear, and will not cause hand stains to infect the inside of the mask during wearing, which will affect the protective effect of the mask; secondly, the mask rope is relatively rough and long. Wearing it over time can cause damage to human facial skin and cause allergies such as redness and rash on human skin. Therefore, the rope of white disposable masks is generally outside. Tips: In almost all masks on the market, the rope is designed on the outside of the mask, which is easier to distinguish.
