051If you want to protect your face from the sun this summer, there's a new terrifying trend in China that might just do the job.

The face-kini, which is a bikini for your face, offers full-face protection from harmful UV rays. It's becoming particularly popular in Asia, where skin colour often represents socio-economic status. Whiter skin is often associated with wealth and beauty.

While the unnerving water balaclava was invented in the early 2000s, more than 30,000 have been sold in the past year, so don't be alarmed if you hit the beach and see dozens of multi-coloured faces staring back at you.

The designer of the face-kini, Zhang Shifan said that they were intentionally invented to protect swimmers from jellyfish stings.

While the trend is mainly concentrated in China, they are available to buy online. Just make sure you take it off before you head to the shops.
