Even if the government restrictions aren’t as limiting in movement as they were a few months ago, it’s never a bad idea to be as doubly sure about safety and protection. After all, COVID-19 is still a very real threat. Some might say it’s just paranoia, but honestly, the numbers speak for themselves, so get yourself these items to protect yourself when you go outside. Of course, don’t forget to wear your face mask!
This might seem overboard when you’re already wearing a face mask, but think about it again. Your face mask only covers your nose and mouth. What about your eyes? Any droplets that might get into your eyes if you’re not wearing protection for your eyes could put you at risk risk. You can get yourself a pair of goggles at Shopee.
If you wear prescription glasses, safety goggles might not be the most comfortable option. In this case, you could get a face shield. This bucket hat and face shield combo is extra convenient. It’s easy to put on, plus, the bucket hat protects you from the sun, too! Get yours at Penshoppe or Shopee.
One of the things you’re probably sick of hearing those three words that start with W, Y, and H. But when you just casually touch so many things in your daily life — from the door handle to the stair railing to your phone — well, you also don’t know how much dirt your hands collect. Which means it’s better to be safe than sorry by wearing disposable latex gloves. Get yours at Shopee.
Hate the feeling of gloves but can’t avoid touching things? This no-touch tool might just be the thing for you. You can put it beside your keys or tie it to your bag like a keychain. And when you’re holding it, it’s like you’ve got a little reminder telling you to stop touching random things, self. Get yours at NelwoodPH.
Sure, you wear your face masks and wash your hands religiously, but then you bring in your outside shoes into your home and who knows what kind of dirt and bacteria have clung to them from your walk from the MRT to your office? You could get a shoe cover to use for when you’re out. Plus they also double as shoe protection from mud and rainfall! Gets yours at Shopee.
While health experts tell us that we only need to protect ourselves from droplets and particles getting into our mouth, nose, or eyes, what if you habitually touch your arms and rub your nose or eyes? Big yikes. So it’s really just better to be prepared for any and all situations if you can afford it, which means getting yourself a protective jacket to guard your upper body from whatever you might end up encountering when you go out. Get yours at Gameville Sportswear.
When you’re wearing a face mask from 9 to 5 (or even longer), your ears probably suffer trying to hold the mask to your face. Why not save your ears with this smart product? Get yours from EarsaversPH.
This might not be as obvious as the others, but bringing a set of utensils and tumbler when you go out would allow you to avoid using things other people have already used. This means you can also avoid the risks of shared utensils (i.e. droplets or particles that might have been left on the utensils). If you can bring your own baon, too, that would be even better. Get yours at EcoWarriorPH or Shopee.
