WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – It’s summertime and that means millions of Americans will be heading down to the beach to beat the warm temperatures. But this is also causing great alarm among U.S. health officials because of the fact that skin cancer, mostly from sun exposure, is the most common of all cancers. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of their lifetime.
But not to worry. The U.S. has placed an order of 50 crates of ‘facekinis’ expected to arrive from China in time for peak summer season. The government will distribute the crates equally among the 50 states.
Facekinis are face masks that have become popular among middle-aged women in China who enjoy going to the beach on a regular basis. The mask covers the entire head and face except for small openings for the eyes, nose and mouth. It is considered more durable, economical and effective than sunscreens and other protective creams.
A word of caution, however: if wearing the facekini, make sure to still apply sunscreen around your eyes, and on your nose and lips, otherwise you will end up looking like Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer or having black eyes and lips like Edward Scissorhands.
Also, Americans are being warned about fake facekinis that are manufactured by fly-by-night entrepreneurs. In other words, Fakekinis.
