How do I determine my size?

When measuring your face, we recommend the following:

Vertical measurement:

From nose bridge to the end of your chin bone.  Make sure your measuring tape runs straight down and over the tip of your nose.  Choose the vertical length that is slightly longer than your measurement.  We suggest about 1/4 to 1/2 inch.

Horizontal measurement:

Start measuring from the top of your cheekbone (about 2″ away from your ear) and run the measuring tape over the tip of your nose to the other cheek side.  If you like more vertical coverage, you can choose a size up.

Both models below are wearing a size medium.

Are Made by Karina masks approved for medical purposes?

Even though the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now include face masks in their recommendations for slowing the spread of the virus, our masks are not designed for medical purposes and should not be treated as such.

 The CDC recommends cloth face masks for the public and not the surgical and N95 masks needed by health care providers.
