The facekini looks more like a balaclava than essential beachwear. But in China, that’s exactly what it has become.
Beachgoers in the eastern city of Qingdao have been sporting facekinis to protect their faces from the sun, and even jellyfish. The swimming gear is made of stretchy, swimsuit like material and covers the entire head. Holes are cut for the eyes, nose and mouth (well, you've got to be able to eat that sandy sandwich somehow).
