It’s a little late in the season to be talking about sun protection products for the beach but we couldn’t resist commenting on this latest trend from China.
Meet the face Face-Kini (think “bikini” for your face) a cover all for your face and head to protect you from UV radiation. Apparently it’s the latest rage on the beaches in China. You have got to check out these images from the Daily Mail!

Is this product a good idea? Well, besides two obvious reasons not to wear it (it looks ridiculous and the name is silly) we can think of at least three reasons why it may not be good for you.
Three ways the Face-Kini could break bad
Zit booster: Comedogenic properties of the plasticizers used in the masks could increase acne.
Rash decision: Prolonged contact with rubbery materials can cause skin rashes.
Stinky hair: Heat and moisture could increase your chances of the fungus that is believed to cause Smelly Hair Syndrome.
The Beauty Brains bottom line
Protecting yourself from UV rays is very important but we’ll stick to sunscreen and a wide brimmed hat, thank you very much.
