When the coronavirus hit the globe back in 2020, we as an entire population did not know what had hit us. Countless lives were lost, which could have potentially be saved, only if people were more prepared. It took us a little over 2 years to fully understand what this pandemic was and how it could be fought. The only hope that people had were face masks. The entire population was told by scientists and doctors that wearing face masks and regularly using sanitizers is the only hope that any of them have, of preventing covid. One could see a long line in front of any and every face mask store and face mask online store. These lines were filled with people looking to stock up.
How did masks convert from a life saving necessity to a fashion accessory?
Pre pandemic, masks were used only by people who worked with industrial grade chemicals or were engaged in the medical field. This is why the demands for masks were low, and one could find only plain mundane surgical masks, if they ever needed them. However, during the pandemic almost everyone started wearing masks. They were supposed to wear one, irrespective of the place they would be visiting. Hence, a face mask shop soon became another stop for Accessory fanatics. People were no longer satisfied with plain boring blue. They wanted style colours and fashion.
Today, when it comes to masks, people no longer settle for just safety. They wish to have safety, comfort as well as style. This is why today, one can find a plethora of masks in different styles and colours.
