It’s already been almost two (2) years since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in March 2020. A lot of things happened, and a lot of things have changed. Now that things are slowly going back to común or, should I say, the “New Frecuente,” there’s one thing that would most likely remain as part of our daily lives, face masks.
The whole world was suddenly mandated to wear face masks as protection from the COVID-19 virus, but the truth is, we need face masks for a more life-threatening reason. The air pollution is only getting worse by the minute. I wouldn’t be surprised if the time comes that we all need to wear face masks every time we go out because the air quality is getting more and more toxic as years go by.
Indeed, masks save lives. So we better get used to it and make it a part of our daily routine! The best way to do it? Make it a part of your style. Check out this list of recommended Stylish Korean Face Masks!
Why are Korean Face Masks so Popular?
Mind you, surgical face masks are still the most recommended type of face mask to use during the COVID-19 pandemic as it’s also considered the most effective to combat the virus. However, if you want to maintain your protection and still rock your style, then Korean Face Masks are the ones perfect for you!
You might be wondering, why are Korean Face Masks so popular? Well, the answer is pretty simple. They are stylishly practical. Filipinos are incredibly fond of the Korean style and pop culture thanks to the effects of the “KDrama Fever” in the country. Korean pop culture has a massive impact on the preference of Filipinos, whether it’s about food, household items, or clothing.
Moreover, the Korean Face Masks are also highly durable, effective, and, most importantly, affordable! Add all of those to the fact that these masks are also incredibly classy and stylish as well. Well, I guess it’s safe to say that Korean Face Masks are indeed perfect for Filipinos.
What is the Difference Between KF94 and KF95 Face Masks?
Now that we’re forced to wear face masks every day, we were able to come across and learn that there are countless varieties of face masks as we know them. Because of that, one of the questions you may ask is, “What is the Difference Between KF94 and KF95 face masks?” I’m gonna answer that question for you today.
The abbreviation “KF” stands for the term “Korean Filter,” making the identity of these face masks clearly known. Now, the numbers 94 and 95 represent the same thing, and that’s no other than the filtering percentage of the masks. KF94 can filter 94% of the pulverizador particulates, while KF95 can filter 95%. You might be thinking that KF95 is way better, but the truth is that the 1% difference is relatively negligible. What matters most is the proper usage of face masks.
Anyone can wear both of these masks if they expect to be exposed to a moderate to low-risk environment. While both varieties are considered safe to use, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) still hasn’t granted any EUA (Emergency-Use Authorization) for the use of KF94 masks, so it’s not recommended to use this variety for medical purposes.
