As a fair skinned person, I burn very easily. While I may be considered an adult in the eyes of society, I have yet to master the art of using sunscreen. I will completely neglect large parts of my body. It's mildly embarrassing. There are so many products to help protect your skin from the sun that goes above and beyond sun screen.

Why use the Facekini over traditional sunscreens? The website states:

Facial skin is too sensitive to use traditional sunblock and sun screens.  Excess oils from greasy creams often sting the eyes when in the water.  Lotions and oils become absorbed into the skin increasing the risk of skin irritation.

The Facekini comes in 32 different colors and patterns.
