Facekini sun protection mask with hood (aka face-kini, prounounced fas-ki-ni)
Protect your face from the sun’s damaging UV rays with the popular sun mask for your face – the Facekini. Facekinis are the latest in functional fashion for the beach.
These comfortable, breathable hoods, allow you to enjoy the sunny weather without worrying about tanning your most valuable asset – your face!
Facial skin is too sensitive to use traditional sunblock and sun screens. Excess oils from greasy creams drip down your face and can sting the eyes. Lotions and oils become absorbed into the skin increasing the risk of skin irritation and residue build-up.
Facekini became the international sensation when spotted on beaches in Asia where some cultures consider a face with fair skin more desirable than a face that is tan.
Facekini is made from a smooth stretchy material that fits over the head, face, and neck. There are openings for the eyes, nose and mouth to allow access for users to wear with other swim accessories such as eye goggles, breathing snorkels, or diving masks.
Facekinis are often worn in combination with other sun protective clothing such as long sleeved shirts, body suits, hats, sunglasses, and sun visors.
