Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a foot mask structure capable of fitting a foot of different sizes, and more particularly to a foot mask that uses a special structural design to attach the foot mask onto a foot of various different sizes, and thus the nutrients on the foot mask are absorbed by the foot to achieve a thorough maintenance effect.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

People nowadays not only pay attentions to their face maintenance, but also spare no effort to maintain other parts of their body. Particularly for women, it is often for women to expose a certain part of their body such as shoulders, arms, or feet to match with their clothing or add personal glamour. Therefore women place importance on the skin condition of their entire body. The skin condition of the feet is one of the key points for maintenance, since sandals or special stylish shoes exposing the toes and ankles are popular.

At present, one of the methods for maintaining our feet is to place one of our feet into a foot mask, and place our feet in the foot mask soaked with maintenance solution to achieve the effects of moisturizing, maintaining and nourishing our feet. The deep skin nourishing process can prevent the skin of our feet from aging or becoming coarse and dry for the reasons of the years, the environment, or wearing high heels. Traditional foot mask series generally comes with one size. Since the foot mask cannot fit the sizes of different users, therefore a user having a large foot cannot place his/her foot into the foot mask, or a user having a small foot finds his/her foot unable to be wrapped tightly by the foot mask, and thus adversely affecting the maintenance effect.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

In view of the shortcomings of the prior art foot mask, the inventor of the present invention based on years of experience in the related industry to conduct extensive researches to improve the situation and overcome the shortcoming, and finally invented a foot mask structure that uses a first wing of the foot mask to adjust the width of wrapping the sole in order to fit various different size of soles, and the foot mask can be attached tightly onto the sole.

Therefore, it is a primary objective of the present invention to provide a foot mask structure that uses a first wing of the foot mask to adjust the width of wrapping the sole in order to fit various different sizes of soles, and the foot mask can be attached tightly onto the sole.

To achieve the foregoing objective, a foot mask structure of the invention comprises an instep diaphragm covered onto an instep of a user and a sole diaphragm attached onto a sole of the user; wherein three lateral sides of the front ends of the instep diaphragm and the sole diaphragm are connected with each other to allow users to place their toes into a bag, and a first wing extended from a side of the sole diaphragm can be turned over to cover the surface of the instep diaphragm, and another sides of the instep diaphragm and the sole diaphragm corresponding to the first wing are connected with each other. Therefore, the first wing of the foot mask can be used to adjust the width for wrapping the sole to fit a sole of different sizes, and the foot mask can be attached tightly onto the sole.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

To make it easier for our examiner to understand the objective of the invention, its structure, innovative features, and performance, we use a preferred embodiment together with the attached drawings for the detailed description of the invention.

Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2 for the foot mask structure and its use according to a first preferred embodiment respectively, the foot mask 1 comprises an instep diaphragm 11 covered onto an instep of a user, and a sole diaphragm 12 attached onto a sole of the user for nourishing the instep and the sole respectively. Since a different sheet design is adopted, therefore the instep or sole can be nourished, maintained or moisturized according to different skin conditions of the instep or sole.

The instep diaphragm 11 further comprises an ankle diaphragm 111 disposed at a rear end and covered onto an ankle of the user, and a cutting line 112 is disposed on both sides between the instep diaphragm 11 and the ankle diaphragm 111, and thus not only can maintain the foot, but also can maintain the ankle as well. The design of the cutting line 112 allows the ankle diaphragm 111 to be attached closely onto the ankle to improve the effect of soaking the chemical solution into the skin, (the ankle diaphragm is not limited to the structure as illustrated in the figure, but the ankle diaphragm can further comprises an ankle diaphragm wing extended from one side of the ankle diaphragm for wrapping the ankle).

The sole diaphragm 12 includes a first wing 121 and a third wing 122 separately extended from both sides of the sole diaphragm 12 and turned over to cover the surface of the instep diaphragm 11. By the design of turning over the first wing 121 and the third wing 122, users can adjust the width of wrapping the first wing 121 and third wing 122 of the foot mask according to the thickness and width of the user's foot, so as to fully cover the foot mask onto the foot and eliminate any gap. The sole diaphragm 12 further includes a heel diaphragm 123 disposed at a rear end of the foot mask and attached onto a heel of the user for maintaining the whole sole.

Three lateral sides of the front ends of the instep diaphragm 11 and the sole diaphragm 12 are connected with each other to allow four toes to be placed into a bag 13, and the bag 13 has a second wing 131 extended from a side of the bag 13. The second wing 131 can be turned over to cover the first toe and the surface of the bag 13. For users having the first toe separated from the other four toes with a larger distance apart, this design can improve the effect of attaching the foot mask closely to each toe.

Referring to FIGS. 3 and 4 for the foot mask structure and its use according to a second preferred embodiment respectively, the structure of the foot mask 1 is similar to the first preferred embodiment, except that three lateral sides of the front ends of the instep diaphragm 11 and the sole diaphragm 12 can be connected with each other to allow five toes to be placed into the bag 13, so that users having five toes close to each other can directly place the five toes into the bag 13, and thus simplifying the second wing and the operation of turning it over.

Referring to FIGS. 5 and 6 for the foot mask structure and its use according to a third preferred embodiment respectively, the foot mask 1 comprises an instep diaphragm 11 covered onto an instep of a user and a sole diaphragm 12 attached onto a sole of the user for nourishing the instep and the sole respectively. Since a different sheet design is adopted, therefore the instep or sole can be nourished, maintained or moisturized according to different skin conditions of the instep or sole.

The instep diaphragm 11 further comprises an ankle diaphragm 111 disposed at the rear end and covered onto an ankle of the user, and a cutting line 112 is disposed at both sides between the instep diaphragm 11 and the ankle diaphragm 111, and thus not only can maintain the foot, but also can maintain the ankle as well. The design of the cutting line 112 allows the ankle diaphragm 111 to be attached tightly onto the ankle to improve the effect of soaking the chemical solution into the skin.

The sole diaphragm 12 comprises a first wing 121 extended from the right side of the sole diaphragm 12 and turned over to cover the surface of the instep diaphragm 11, and the left sides of both instep diaphragm 11 and sole diaphragm 12 are connected with each other. With the design of turning over the first wing 121, a user can adjust the width of wrapping the first wing 121 and the third wing 122 of the foot mask according to the thickness and width of the user's foot, so as to fully cover the foot mask onto the foot and eliminate any gap. Further, the sole diaphragm 12 is not extended backward to the heel, and thus the user can still walk, open a door, or receive a phone call while applying the foot mask to maintain their feet.

Three lateral sides of the front ends of the instep diaphragm 11 and the sole diaphragm 12 are connected with each other to allow four toes to be placed into a bag 13, and the bag 13 has a second wing 131 extended from a side of the bag 13. The second wing 131 can be turned over to cover the first toe and the surface of the bag 13. For users having the first toe separated from the other four toes with a larger distance apart, this design can improve the effect of attaching the foot mask closely to each toe.

Referring to FIGS. 7 and 8 for the foot mask structure and its use according to a fourth preferred embodiment respectively, the structure of the foot mask 1 is similar to the third preferred embodiment, except that three lateral sides of the front ends of the instep diaphragm 11 and the sole diaphragm 12 can be connected with each other to allow five toes to be placed into the bag 13, and the sole diaphragm 12 further comprises a heel diaphragm 123 disposed at a rear end of the sole diaphragm 12 and extended backward to be attached onto the heel for maintaining the entire sole. Users having five toes close to each other can directly place the five toes into the bag 13, and thus simplifying the second wing and the operation of turning it over.

Referring to FIGS. 9 and 10 for the foot mask structure and its use according to a fifth preferred embodiment respectively, the structure of the foot mask 1 is similar to the third preferred embodiment, except that three lateral sides of the front ends of the instep diaphragm 11 and the sole diaphragm 12 can be connected with each other to allow five toes to be placed into the bag 13, so that users having five toes close to each other can directly place the five toes into the bag 13, and thus simplifying the second wing and the operation of turning it over.

Referring to FIGS. 11 and 12 for the foot mask structure and its use according to a sixth preferred embodiment respectively, the structure of the foot mask 1 is similar to the third preferred embodiment, except that three lateral sides of the front ends of the instep diaphragm 11 and the sole diaphragm 12 are connected with each other to allow five toes to be placed into the bag 13, and the ankle diaphragm 111 includes an ankle diaphragm wing 113 extended from the right side of the ankle diaphragm 111 for wrapping the ankle, so that the front, back, left, and right sides of the ankle can be maintained. Users having five toes close to each other can directly place the five toes into the bag 13, and thus simplifying the second wing and the operation of turning it over. The ankle diaphragm wing 113 can be used to maintain the ankle.

Referring to FIGS. 13 and 14 for the foot mask structure and its use according to a seventh preferred embodiment respectively, the foot mask structure is derived from the structure according to the first preferred embodiment as illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 2. The foot mask 1 of the seventh preferred embodiment comprises a heel diaphragm 123 and a rear ankle diaphragm 124 extended from a rear end of the foot mask 1, and a rear ankle diaphragm wing 125 separately extended from both sides and the rear ankle diaphragm 124 blocks the rear side of the ankle, so that the two rear ankle diaphragm wings can be wrapped around a rear side of the ankle, and the ankle diaphragm 111 includes a longitudinal cutting line 114 disposed at the middle section of an end of the ankle diaphragm 111, and the longitudinal cutting line 114 can be separated for attaching the ankle diaphragm 111 according to the curve of the foot and giving a complete wrap for maintaining the foot.
