How to Keep Glasses from Fogging Up With Face Masks
Wearing face masks as we go out in public has become the norm – especially since many stores have begun requiring face masks. And the more we have them on, the more some of us are noticing that there's an issue…. our glasses keep fogging up!
It can be a real problem – but PPP Team Member Cheree has been working on finding a solution. Here's what she's found that works for her!
Cheree here! I have bought a few cute masks to wear during COVID-19, but some of them were just awful at getting fogged up. I did some research to help find the best face masks to use and also a handy coating you can apply to your glasses. So far so good!
1 . Get a Mask with a Nose Bridge
My number one tip would be to find a mask with a nose bridge. This is HUGE for helping keep warm air from escaping up through the top to fog your glasses.
My husband Russ purchased this face mask from Amazon.
This one works so well and glasses don't fog at all! I like the fact that it has the nose piece and it doesn't move around, but the snout is just too large for me. But if that doesn't bother you this one is a GREAT option to help with foggy glasses.
I got this 50ct Pack of Disposable Masks with nose bridges at Home Depot for $29.99. (You can get these similar ones on Amazon as well!)
2 . Try an Anti-Fog Coating
Now I've used this anti-fog spray a few times and I think it helps a little – but gosh some of the reviews are so bad I hate to even recommend it!
Home-made anti-fog coatings are FREE, so you might want to give these a try instead:
Soap & Water
Immediately before wearing your face mask, wash lenses with soapy water (choose a dish soap that does NOT include lotion) and shake off the excess. Then, let them air dry or gently dry with a soft tissue
Rub shaving cream on the lenses and wipe dry.
NOTE: If you have special coatings on your lenses, check with your optician before applying a coating so you don’t ruin them.
3 . Use the Bridge of Your Glasses to Seal Your Mask
If your mask doesn't have a nose piece – pull your mask fabric higher up onto your nose. Then OVER the mask, use the bridge on your glasses to push down the fabric of your mask and mold it to the bridge of your nose better.
Have you discovered any clever hacks to keep your glasses from fogging up while wearing a face mask? I'd love to hear your ideas!
