There are ways to ameliorate the effects of wearing a mask in the heat.

As anyone who's spent time under a mask recently can tell you, the practice isn't often enjoyable. And as the weather warms up, face masks could become particularly sweaty and uncomfortable.

"Summers are tough," said Nicole Jochym, a third-year medical student at Cooper Medical School at Rowan University in New Jersey who works with the Sew Face Masks Philadelphia organization.

Even as temperatures rise, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) still recommends wearing face masks, and in some cases, it is required. The good news is that there are some strategies to help make masks more bearable in warm weather.
