But, then you’re going to encounter a dilemma – how can I wear a bland white surgical mask with this kickin’ outfit?

You can get tie-dye or bandanna masks, each that will filter out anything larger than .3 microns 95% of the time (a human hair is 100 microns).

Of course, you could play it DIY-style and just draw a big set of red lips on your plain mask with a marker. Or bathe in Lysol. Whatever gets you through the pandemic.
