5 Tips To Stop Your Glasses Fogging Up While Wearing A Mask

It can be annoying when your glasses keep getting foggy due to your mask but don’t stop wearing your mask. Here are tips for wearing a mask without fogging up your glasses.

Among other things that we’ve had to adapt to this year is wearing masks when in public. Unless you’re a medical doctor or any other profession that requires protection in the form of a mask, the whole experience has been quite something to adapt to.

Masks can get on your nerves, be it the heat, ‘maskne,’ and if you’re a regular glasses wearer, foggy glasses. Luckily, you can solve the foggy glasses problem easily. Here are five tips on how to wear a mask with fogging up your glasses

Fit your mask to your face

When putting on your mask, pinch the top of the mask to fit the shape of your nose. If your mask is well fitted on your face, it’s less likely for air to escape fogging up your glasses.

If crafting is your thing, you may want to make a mask or customize yours to fit your face better and help deal with your foggy glasses problem.

Evidence from a 2011 study published in the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons showed if you wash your lenses with soapy water, shake off the excess moisture, and then let them air-dry, they’ll resist fogging.

This works similarly to the soapy water trick and will allow your lenses to resist fog and keep water droplets from building up and fogging your lenses.

Pushing your glasses slightly further down your nose will allow more air to circulate. This will keep your breath from fogging up your vision.

Pull your mask up over your nose, and rest your glasses on top. Try and block the air from escaping and prevent fogging.
