Is there anything better to protect my face

I am blasting my Trans Am frame, firewall, and floor with my harbor Freight 110 pound blaster. The face shield lense gets destroyed in a span of 20 minutes. The lenses are not cheap either. My dad is an old audiophile so he has a crapload of old cd cases. I been using those instead of those lenses they sell with the face shields. It actually works well and lasts just as long too.

Is there anything better? I was thinking a glass plate but then that might not be good either considering how glass is a really hard material, might make it more prone to scuffs.

What is the most scratch resistant material?

Cut a tennis ball in half , punch a hole in 1 half the size of your blaster nozzle, slip it over the nozzle w/ the cup side towards your work, really cuts back on blow-back..
