    Mask Recommendedations

    Does anyone have a type of mask or face covering material that they recommend for the heat in Aruba? Materials, brands, web links, whatever you have used in extreme heat and recommend?

    The masks we have been wearing were purchased on amazon. While comfortable for our summer here I don’t think they would be great in Aruba because they are black and I think they would feel hotter. I just purchased some online at Nordstrom.com that I haven’t worn yet. They do have some in lighter colors that may work. I look for two layers then check the reviews for whether or not people say they are comfortable.

    I believe that either plain 100% cotton or paper will be best.
    Here in Fla where it is still 90 degrees days the paper and cotton are the most tolerable for me.

    My safe and sustain flamingo masks
    are HOT.

    Honestly, any mask in Aruba is hot. The humidity more than anything, but I do see a lot of folks wearing the paper disposable masks. I would guess those might be the best option. I have a couple different ones with me and they all suck. Lol. Soooo hot...

    I was talking to a coworker about this and she recommended Old Navy, so I am going to check theirs out some time this week. She bought a bunch for her kids because they were inexpensive. She said they are light and have adjustable ear straps.
