For several years, on and off, I’ve used Breathe Right Strips (or a similar knockoff brand) to open my airways and help me breathe at night and, hopefully, cut down on my snoring. 

The one thing I’ve always hated was taking them off the next morning. Not so much because they hurt being peeled off your nose, which is why I usually do that in the shower. But mostly because then my sinuses get congested again. 

I’ve always wished that it would be acceptable to wear something like these in public. Alas, I’ve never seen it done, therefore I have not either. 

Until today, when I realized that I would be in public with my mask on so why not give it a go!


I breathed so much better with it on. 

Another benefit of mask wearing!
