How do I know if the mask will fit me?
Currently, Remask Air masks are available in two sizes: M/L and S. To find out if the mask will fit you, measure from the base of your eye to your chin (as shown in the Size guide in the Products page). If the measurement is between 11-14 cm, you require the M/L size and if between 7-11 cm, it is the S size. ReMask Air Masks have silicone adjusters on both ear loops and an adjustable metal wire on the nose bridge to help achieve a secure fit on the face.
RexxMask 2.0 and RexxMask Junior masks do not have adjustable earloops.
RexxMask Junior masks come in one size: 7–9cm.
How long can I wear the mask for?
It is recommended that the mask is changed every 4 hours or when it becomes wet.
How do I look after the mask?
Wash after each use at 60 °C using fabric detergent. Air dry or use a tumble dryer or hair dryer. Masks can be ironed using a low heat setting. Do not use fabric softener. Do not dry clean. Store clean mask in a clean container until next use.
