It May Look Weird, But the Facekini Will Do Wonders for Your Skin

By  | 

Let’s face it… after depriving your skin of vitamin D all year long, you’re probably now feeling desperate to get outside and turn your face directly towards the sun. Unfortunately, we all know the damage the sun can do to our skin, so even though we’re yearning for that sunkissed glow, it’s important to remember that too much sun isn’t good either. Plus, there’s pretty much nothing worse than a sunburn to the face.

We’re going to take a wild guess and say that you typically use sunscreen to protect your face from those harmful UV rays, and GOOD; that’s what you should be doing! However, you should also know that that’s not your only option. Enter: The Facekini.

Okay, so we know it looks kind of ridiculous, but hear us out! The Facekini, though ~interesting~ in appearance, will protect you so that you can stay out in the sun for a longer period of time without doing severe damage to your skin. Weird, but brilliant!

From what we know of the product so far, it is made out of a lighter spandex material so as not to feel too heavy when you’re sitting in direct sunlight. The best part is, it comes in a variety of different colors and designs, so you can really have fun with it! Check out this one, for example:

If you haven’t seen anyone rocking this bizarre beach trend yet, don’t worry… it’s still early in the season. However, it’s already a popular trend in China and other Asian countries, so it’s just a matter of time until we’re all rocking the Facekini.
