Face-Kini Is a Craze on China's Beaches: Sun Burn or Face-Kini?

If given the choice between getting a sunburn on your face or wearing a Face-Kini, like the ones pictured below, which option would you choose? Apparently, the Chinese don't trust their suntan lotions, which make the best choice for avoiding a facial sunburn.

Forget staying indoors, applying sun cream or wearing wide-brimmed hats. Face masks are the must-have beachwear items sweeping China.

    What? Are we all Mexican professional wrestlers now? I mean really. How could those things be comfortable?
    Nope, not for me, I'll stick with good, old fashion, sun screen.

    So why do these idiots go to the beach? If I was that nuts about the sun I would just go too a pool.

    Not really! I've had enough of those.
    You have to understand the culture, their obsession with having white skin and not brown/red and why that is.
    They carry umbrellas in the sunshine, they wear protective clothing when traveling on bikes and scooters, and they use 'whitening' cream one their skin all the time. They do not like being tan. It means you are of a different class (lower).

    I live in the Sunshine State; and have already had skin cancer removed once.
  • addie Cricket 2012/08/23 06:32:38
    That is scary, but isn't better to avoid the sun then be in it wearing one of these things?
  • Cricket addie 2012/08/23 09:03:05
    Absolutely, and I do! I also wear about half a gallon of 85 SPF sunscreen for UVA and UVB rays when I venture outside.
  • addie Cricket 2012/08/23 18:14:55
    Yes, being safe does not mean you have to dress in a colourful terrorist-like head cover, thankfully. lol
    But I understand your answering pro, face-kini.
  • Cricket addie 2012/08/23 18:19:14
    I think face-kinis are hilarious! I wouldn't realllly wear one, however.
  • addie Cricket 2012/08/23 23:10:20
    I know. I understood what you meant. Avoiding the sun and good sun block are enough and If we were going to the beach, I would make you cover up pretty good! At least stick a big hat on you, but not that face-kini, don't worry.
  • Cricket addie 2012/08/24 18:06:09
    Thanks :-)

    If you're afraid of the sun, stay in the house. I'm IRISH, don't come to me whining about sunburn. If I was any paler I'd be clear and I LOVE swimming and cannot afford to go to indoor pools and such. I get to burn multiple times every summer and don't mind it a bit.
  • addie Call me... 2012/08/23 23:12:28
    If this is too much coverage for someone who is Irish it is too much and do not come whining to me either!

    That sounds really uncomfortable. Just use sun screan sure it will cost a little extra, but summer doesn't last for ever.

    I'd rather THEM wear a Face-Kini. I think it is a great device that allows the terminally ugly to go places in public without scaring small children or making adults nauseous. It figures that they wold develop it in China first because they have a huge population of horribly ugly people there. I hope it catches on. Maybe they can come out with a US version called Body-Awning for those that can't seem to put their fork down. It would come with a circus tent type material and a framework underneath that would prevent unsightly bulges from the rolls of blubber from being seen by the normal people.

    This just made me think of a great question to ask...

  • hannah Kenneth... 2012/08/24 15:23:40
    lolziez. she would look a little weird having a lili-white face but the rest of her tan. maybe their just fooling around though (id only wear one of those things if i was gonna be a weirdo and joke around, but i would NEVER wear it seriously). and the dude in the corner is looking over probably thinking "what the hell are they wearing? and seriously how do people come up with this stuff much less actually WEAR it." im sure he wouldnt be caught DEAD wearing that thing. it makes people look like aliens. lolziez

    WTF really?
  • ChiTownGirl 2012/08/22 20:03:15
    I'd rather get a sunburn
    Just take a look at most Asian and Indian face creams, most of which claim to make you "whiter" by gradual skin bleaching. It's a social thing with these cultures, the whiter your skin, the more beautiful they think you look, as well as more educated and the fact that you have more $$$. It's ridiculous. Sunscreen is the way to go!!
  • addie ChiTown... 2012/08/23 23:16:36
    Asian's have lightening creams? I had no idea. That racist bull was once available here in the US for black people, sold as whitening creams.
    i will never understand people.

    Not to mention that they will probably be made illegal soon. Government paranoia. They couldn't possibly be thinking of their health. They must be terrorist.
