Is your facemask fogging up your glasses? Here are some tips to stop them fogging up

  1. wash your glasses with soap and water,  then dry them with a microfibre cloth. Soap reduces surface tension, preventing fog from sticking to the lenses.
  2. apply a thin layer of shaving cream to the inside of your glasses, then gently wipe it off.
  3. use a commercial de-misting spray.
  4. Improving the fit around the curve of the nose and cheeks is the best approach – mould the nose bridge at the top of your surgical mask to your face to reduce the gap that allows warm moist air up to the glasses.
  5. Apply some tape (eg: Micropore that’s designed for skin) to the top edge of the mask to close the gap.
  6. slightly moistening a tissue, folding it and placing it under the top edge of the mask.
