The Face-Kini Is All The Rage In China!

Dayum, the Chinese are SERIOUS about not catching rays on their face.

The Face-Kini is the hottest new trend coming out of Qingdao, a resort town in China.

The head mask is usually worn with a body suit to protect the beach-goer's skin from the sun because a tan is associated with those who do labor work, whereas fair skin is a sign of higher status.

A woman on the beach said:

"A woman should always have fair skin. Otherwise people will think you’re a peasant."

Guess we know where the cast of the Jersey Shore won't be vacationing.

We just wish the masks were more chic like the ones Maison Martin Margiela had their models wear at Couture Fashion Week.

Now that would be a FABULOUS way to swim!
