Face masks are now crucial to wear in public to help stop the spread of coronavirus. But if yours is too big, you won’t be able to protect yourself and others effectively. Not only are oversized masks a nuisance (you’ll likely be fidgeting with them every few minutes to try to stay covered), but they also pose a safety risk, as infected droplets can easily pass through any gaps between your face and mask.

Many masks are “one size fits most,” but may not fit properly for those with more narrow faces. If you have a smaller face, look for styles that come in petite sizes. If you do decide to purchase a one-size-fits-most mask, look for slim cut, contoured designs and those with adjustable ear ties to help you achieve a closer fit.

Considering all this, we rounded up some of the best face masks for people with smaller faces. Discover them all ahead.
