I suggest having or at least trying different styles until you find what you like. I prefer cotton masks. My daughter prefers thin masks made from some kind of synthetic fiber. My husband prefers the disposable ones like in your picture.

I have a cotton surgical mask that ties. I like how it fits and it is easy to breathe with it on. I want some with earloops instead because the ties get tangled in my hair. I like that when I'm not wearing it, I can hang it around my neck. If I'd wear my hair back, it wouldn't get tangled in my hair. We should probably all have some masks that tie or go around our head to give our ears a break now and then.

I have one fitted mask that suffocates me. I have another fitted mask that falls off my nose. I saw a mask with vertical pleats I'd like to try.

Cotton masks do get wet after a while, so I will probably need two masks per school day. The plus though is my face is usually dry. With the disposable masks, my face sweats terrible

Hope my rambling helps somehow.
