Face masks have become a global necessity since the outbreak of Covid-19 nearly four months ago. Now, in mid-Summer, breathability is at the top of the list when you’re looking for a safe, comfortable, and cute — let’s be honest — mask to wear on the regular. But an added complication? Exercise. If you thought that it was hard enough to breathe in the stifling heat of Summer, sitting at an outdoor café, consider going out for a run in that very same weather. But don't stress: here are 8 face masks you can exercise in.
