Chinese women with masks - level 3, A12

Chinese women with masks - level 3, A12

23-08-2012 18:00

A new fashion trend has emerged in north-eastern China, the facekini.

Unlike many westerners that take pride in their sun-kissed skin, most Chinese women are eager to keep their porcelain look. So they’ve come up with these colourful face masks, dubbed facekinis.

They cover up the entire head and neck, protecting them from the sun.


Interesting words: emerge (come out), are eager (want something strongly), porcelain (white material for making expensive plates), dubbed (named).
