Sealable Mask / Mask Design Concept

Sealable Mask
Sealable Mask

How do people keep the mask hygienic and safe in a simple and approachable way when they need to take off the mask in the public space? The concept is to build two concave and convex strips made of soft fabric material on the side of the mask to help people fully seal the mask by folding it in half. The design does not create an extra mask cover or accessories, but instead smartly utilizes the existing mask structure by adding an extra practical function to keep it hygienic.
