Sun Protection Measures to the Extreme: Sun Masks?

Posted on August 8, 2012


Asian women take the most measures out of any race to avoid the sun. This is because a white colored face is a sign of nobility in their culture.

I’m pretty sure many of you have seen Asian females driving cars wearing some unique glove wear that starts at their hands and covers their skin up past their elbows and those ridiculous severely oversized head visors. These are just unique ways Asian women take to shield them from any harmful UVA & UVB sun radiation to help keep their skin feeling and looking super young.

I decided to write this post because I stumbled upon a crazy picture in my opinion that shows the HIGH importance of avoiding the sun in Asian society and what extremes people do to follow it — SUN MASKS. Check out these two pictures for some Asian skin care tips:

It sure is a crazy sight! Wearing ski masks at the beach! But heck this is probably the best sun protection and skincare preventative measure any man or woman can follow aside from putting on some SPF 60+ sunscreen. On the other hand I’m not sure how many Miss China hot models you will be able to ogle at on the shores of Bo’ao Yudai Beach since you won’t be able to see how their faces look like under those sun masks!
