As the scientific world slowly slogs along towards developing a coronavirus vaccine, it's important that in the meantime, everyone practices the correct social distancing measures and mask use.

Unfortunately, not everyone is practicing the pandemic's preventative measures correctly, which not only puts themselves at risk of contracting the virus, but also puts everyone else at risk of contracting the virus from them. Some of the most common ways people can spread the virus are through incorrect use of their face mask, and while these failures of mask use might seem trivial, the impact of them is hardly as such.

Since the pandemic began, we have had it been drilled into us that the main way the virus spread is through droplets in the air, which is why having a face mask is so vital as it not only stops your own droplets from spreading outwards into the air around you, but also stops you from inhaling anyone else's droplets. Some would argue that the face masks are useless, but multiple scientific studies have shown that face mask use can significantly reduce, and in some cases even prevent the amount of viral load a person inhales.

Here are the 8 common mask styles that are ineffective:

The Anti-Sneeze-Guard: If you feel the need to sneeze, don't decide to pull your mask down, the purpose of the mask is to catch things like sneezes and coughs.

The Droopy Dog: If your mask is too loose, stretched out, or overall just a saggy mess, throw it out and get a new one. The old one is ineffective.
