Apr 1 2021 - 11:15am

By now, we all know how important face masks are [1] in stopping the spread of COVID-19. In fact, experts say it's not only safe but recommended [2] that you wear a face mask even while exercising, including tough workouts like running.

However, as fun as it is to collect cute, patterned face masks [3] the way we collect hair ties — after all, they're essentially part of your outfit these days — not all of them are great for your next training session [4]. If you want to avoid discomfort, sweat stains, and breakouts, a moisture-wicking mask is the way to go. We've rounded up a few of our favorites that can help keep sweat and germs at bay.

Under Armour Sportsmask

The Under Armour Sportsmask [6] ($30) is structured to sit up off your face and lips for extra comfort and breathability. It's moisture-wicking, with an antimicrobial-treated inner layer and a water-resistant outer shell, as well as UPF 50+ sun protection.

Aerie Reusable Face Mask

The Aerie Reusable Face Mask [7] ($15) is water-resistant and finished with an antibacterial treatment to help prevent the growth of germs. It comes in three pretty patterns.

The inner and outer layers of the Bedgear Performance Mask [14] ($15) are made from the brand's Dri-Tec moisture-wicking fabric, which helps reduce sweat and heat buildup while combatting humidity. The middle layer provides filtration.
