Would you wear a Facekini?

 What lengths would you go to to protect your face from harmful UV rays?

In some parts of China they will go to great lengths to ensure the sun's rays have no effect on the face or body.

Women wear long gloves and use umbrellas but the latest trend is the 'Facekini' a face mask with holes cut out for the eyes, nose and mouth! Dark skin is not wanted because it is associated with peasants in China and city dwellers go to extreme lengths to protect their skin from the sun and the production of melanin which produces a tan.

There are however some celebrities who want to protect their porcelain complexions too or are afraid of the ageing effects of the UVA rays and have been photographed on beaches wearing a full body suit!
