Besides hand sanitizers, wearing face masks became the new norm among Filipinos in hopes of preventing catching the disease or (for those who are already infected) stop the spread of it.

As the supply of disposable face masks decreased and the demand high, local businesses created alternatives with washable face masks with creative designs that improve our #NewNormal a little better. Here's a little roundup of affordable face masks we found on Instagram.

The brand introduced a silicone made face mask shaped like the N-95, however, unlike the straightforward mask, theirs comes in different colors from browns, pinks, and blacks. The silicone mask can be availed alone but we highly recommend going for their 800php combo that comes with the mask, 10 pieces of filter, and 2 brackets.

If you look at it, face masks are more of an urban style than chic. And if your looks are the latter then Zoo Label’s Breathe Trio Mask may turn the tables for you.

There’s nothing wrong with stylish face maks as long as its function the way face masks does. It’s also a great way to support local brands and shops who are affected by the quarantine. Shop away!
