That's a cute mask, right? It's a pity Disney couldn't be bothered to put proper contouring strips into the bridge of its masks, but that's OK. I can fix them, and it doesn't even take a sewing machine or a seamripper to do it. Before I head out, I just grab one of these aluminum strips, slap it across the top of my mask, and then shape it to fit my nose and cheeks. The mask stops slipping around on my face and I'm not fogging up my glasses with every other breath.

And with this Prime Day deal, you can get them at three pennies apiece in a multi-pack that should (hopefully) last you and your family until a vaccine becomes available.

It also helps limit air from escaping around the top of your mask and thus helps limit the spreading of any germs or active viruses in your respiratory tract. So do it for your friends, do it for your neighbors, and do it for yourself because a comfy mask is easier to keep on for longer periods of time. And while you're at it, stock up on hand sanitizer.
