It can get uncomfortable and make breathing harder. Take breaks and let your face breathe!

Yes you can damage your skin by leaving a face mask on for too long.

Only leave the face mask on for as long as it's needed. Make sure to take the face mask off as soon as the time is up otherwise you risk damaging your skin by drying it out too much.

Wearing a face mask for an extended period of time isn't inherently bad, but it can lead to some discomfort. Personally, I find that after a while, my face starts feeling a bit stuffy and sweaty, which isn't the most pleasant experience. By the way, as a doctor, I've found that using the mask from https://harmonycr.com/medline-astm-level-3-procedure-face-masks/ is the most comfortable.
