Sometimes trying to keep up with the new rules around COVID19 can feel like a never-ending task, and now, with the government's announcement that face mask regulations are amping up as of 30 November 2021, we're back to popping on a square of face fashion before we travel or shop.

Until further notice, face coverings must now be worn in shops (including banks, post offices etc.), supermarkets, beauty salons, public transport and transport terminals and during driving lessons and tests. 

You can read the full list of places where a face mask is mandatory on the Government's website here

So, with masks back on the menu, we've rounded up the best places to buy yours from.

We'd built up quite the collection but it's surely time for some new ones - just in time for Christmas. 

Where to buy a face mask UK

Accessorize | Shop here

From sequin face masks (bonus: they'll also help keep your face warm) to fun festive designs, Accessorize's face mask collection starts at £6. 

Amazon | Shop here

From packs of 100 disposable masks (ideal if you're buying for a shop or event) to sleek black cotton face masks, if you're looking to buy in bulk, you've come to the right place. 

ASOS | Shop here

As you'll likely be unsurprised to hear, ASOS has a whole range of super stylish face masks, from reclaimed vintage pieces to unisex wave prints and Topshop camouflage designs. 

Adidas | Shop here

Adidas' unisex face masks, which are made from soft, breathable fabric, have racked up thousands of reviews, with customers praising the non-medical face coverings for their quality, breathability and comfort.

Plus, they've currently got a sale on, so you save up to 50% across their entire face covering collection. 

Aldi | Shop here

Aldi's face mask range isn't huge - it spans just four products - but it's about quality over quantity and their three-mask range is certainly good value for money. 

The range also includes a printable mask four-pack, where you can design your own patterns so you can always match your mood or your outfit. 

Boots | Shop here

From face masks designed by some of the UK's most sought-after fashion houses to masks that are extra soft and comfy on the ears, Boots face masks range from the medical to the modern. 

Not On The High Street | Shop here

From a gorgeous array of satin silk face masks (and honestly, we do mean gorgeous) to handmade floral pieces and draw-your-own masks, NOTHS's marketplace of talented designers have really nailed the brief on thoughtful, stylish and comfortable face coverings. 

Etsy | Shop here

If you're going to shop for a face mask from Etsy, we'd block out some time in your diary because, though their range of no less than 640,000 different masks means you're likely to find one that suits your taste and budget, it also is likely to take you rather a long time to wade through. 

Oliver Bonas | Shop here

It looks like Oliver Bonas were just as unprepared for the new announcement as us, or they're particularly picky, as their range currently spans just three products - two for adults and one galaxy-themed mask for kids. 

SkinnyDip | Shop here

If you're not one to blend into the background, then SkinnyDip is the perfect place for you to mask up. Their whimsical, cosmical, colourful designs will certainly have you standing out in a crowd - and you can also nab this two-pack of festive candy cane masks for just 90p, talk about getting into the Christmas spirit. 

Plumo | Shop here

You might not have heard of Plumo before but we love their unique aesthetic, think chic interiors and materials, but worn on your face rather than decorating your home. You'll soon understand what we mean...
