Here’s how some people are trying to avoid sunburn in Japan

For those wanting to cover up in the warmer months, there’s a new item of clothing you might want added to your wish list. It’s called an anti-sunburn mask and it’s supposed to cut down on UV rays by up to 98%. But there’s a catch. You have to wear this over your face, so if you’re not a fan of looking like a complete idiot while on the beach, you should definitely look more into these.

My only worry about these anti-sunburn masks is that it doesn’t cover the whole face. So while the bottom half of your head is being protected against the elements, the rest of your face is going to get burnt and age twice as fast. That could be slightly awkward in the years to come. But hey, at least you’ll be staying on top of the fashion world while you’re young.
