China is clearly more fashion forward than I ever hope to be. The Chinese have developed a new piece of beachwear to keep the sun from ever touching their face. It is called the Facekini. Yes, I did just write the â€œFacekini,â€ like a bikini for your face but with a lot more material to it.
In the United States, getting a tan is one of the main reasons for going to the beach. I remember every summer as a teen, spending my summers at the beach with my friends; laying out in the sun, wearing bikinis and boy watching. By the end of the summer, we usually had a great tan and a boyfriend.
But in China, the Chinese are going to extraordinary lengths to avoid getting a bit of sun. The masks completely cover the swimmers’ heads, revealing only their eyes, noses, and mouths. I hear it also serves as prevention against teen dating.
From what Iâ€™ve seen, many of the Chinese beach goers are happily adopting the new look. I think they all look like the cast of Lucha Libre or really flamboyant burglars, either way, I donâ€™t think this fashion forward fad will make it across the Pacific.
A bright Luchador mask might protect the alabaster skin on your face, but it would look pretty ridiculous with your two-piece bikini and no one’s picking up a boyfriend in one of those home invasion masks.
I donâ€™t care if they are in every happy color of your Crayola box, if you wear them, there is only one thing I can guarantee; your skin will be alabaster and you will be surrounded by laughter.
What do you think about the facekini?
