Would you wear a 'face-kini' to the beach? Creepy craze taking off
- Filed under:
Beachgoers in China have taken to protecting their skin wearing head masks, dubbed 'face-kinis'.
The crowded public beach in Qingdao, northeast China's Shandong province, was choc-a-block with scary-looking skin protectors, making every holidaymaker look like a potential bank robber.
They handily come in all styles, shapes and sizes; whether you need one for your kids or for... a camouflage exercise?
The face masks were initially designed to protect from sunburn as many people in China dislike getting a tan, especially on the face.
But it turns out they are also quite handy at repelling insects and jellyfish.
And making you look ridiculous...
