Sunblock, apparently, isn't enough. So the Chinese have invented -- or, rather, borrowed from the wardrobe designers of slasher movies -- a unique item of sun protection.
Introducing, the Sun-kini. From the Daily Mail:
One way to avoid the dangerous rays of the sun is to stay indoors, another is to apply a healthy layer of sun cream and slap on a wide-brimmed hat.
If you’re in China, however, there is a third option - a 'Face-Kini' complete with a body suit.
The name describes a protective head mask that is being used in Shandong province's East China Sea coast by beach-goers who want to protect their skin from the sun.
Of course, if my local beach looked like this, I'd want to be fully covered by latex, too:
Say this for the Chinese: they make a mean iPhone, but they have a lot to learn about summer vacation.
