While Canadians are starting to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, it's evident that face masks will still be a requirement for summer and beyond.

As vital as they are, face masks can sometimes feel uncomfortable especially if you're wearing one when it's 35 degrees outside.

But you can opt for a mask that's lightweight, breathable and moisture-wicking to avoid sweaty situations.
