Have you ever seen a facekini? You’re sure to remember as this bizarre fashion trend isn’t dying but gaining more popularity on Chinese beaches this summer.

Summer in China has seen temperatures soar to 30 degrees Celsius, prompting residents to seek out the beach.

Many netizens on Weibo have grown accustomed to the sight of these “face-kinis”, but are more concerned with the crowds than the heat:

“Look at how dirty the beach is! I would prefer my bathroom to this public beach!” one wrote.

“You call 30 degrees Celsius hot? How about 40 degrees in Xi’an?” another chimed in.
