If you're looking to stock up on KN95 face masks, Maskc, one of Hollywood's favorite face mask brands, is now selling ones that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration  — and they come in tons of bright colors.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other experts now recommend double-masking (wearing a reusable mask over a disposable one) and wearing high-filtration options, such as KN95 masks, for your best chance at preventing the transmission of COVID-19. These protective coverings are equivalent to the N95 masks that healthcare workers use and often made in China. The FDA has authorized select Chinese manufacturers to import KN95 masks for emergency use, and many of them can be purchased from places like Amazon, ShopVida, and now, Maskc.

Maskc came to market last year with stylish disposable options to help with the mask shortage. Its original non-medical masks quickly became a go-to for many Hollywood A-listers, including Jennifer Lopez, Mandy Moore, Chrissy Teigen, Lucy Hale, and Alessandra Ambrosio.

According to the brand, its newly released KN95 masks come from Dongguan Pan American Electronics Co., Ltd. — one of the approved manufacturers from the FDA's list. This means Masckc's KN95 masks filter at least 95 percent of airborne particles.

Each one is made from the brand's premium hypoallergenic materials using a five-ply construction. They feature three center layers that work together to block bacteria, along with a non-woven exterior and a soft, skin-friendly inner layer. Like its non-medical masks, they come with an adjustable nose bridge for a more secure fit and gentle ear loops that won't tug.

To buy: Maskc Almond KN95 Face Mask 10 Pack, shopmaskc.com, $36

Masks should be discarded after 10 hours of continuous use, which is why Maskc masks come in packs of 10 for $36. Its original black KN95 masks sold out less than one month after launching, but luckily the brand just released them in a neutral almond color, along with variety packs in blush tones, earth tones, and spring hues.

While the KN95s are not intended for double-masking (you should only use one KN95 at a time), you can also get Maskc's non-medical masks that are intended for that. Purchase of either includes a resealable bag for safe storage of coverings between use.

Whether you're looking for high-filtration, FDA-approved KN95 masks or going the double-masking route, Maskc is a good place to stock up.
