There’s no question that American and European beauty is often equated with a youthful, healthy glow—the kind you might get from enough holidays spent at the nearest beach. Our desired trips range from the shores of Malibu, to the stunning New England coastline, to the unrivaled glamour of the south of France. Some of our favorite pastimes are spent outdoors on the tennis courts, on green golf courses, or dining al fresco when the weather permits. Our latest summer story represents an opposing ideal of beauty altogether, with masked poolside models set out to soak up as little sun as possible.

While our summer beauty routines are devoted to bronzing, self-tanning, and tan-extending, in Asia, beauty-seekers are more likely to center theirs around lightening and brightening. A tan does not signify a chic trip to Capri, but it could mean hours of hard labor spent out in the harsh sun. Our last swimwear story of the season blends all of the glamour of a Helmut Newton-esque pool party with the idea that a deep tan is the enemy. As it is said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. These beautiful eyes are peering from behind a mask—still enjoying summer, but avoiding a summer glow at all costs.
