Correct me if I am wrong, but I grew up with the notion that we would live, TRY AND AGE AS GRACEFULLY AS POSSIBLE grow old and die. Well, these days people do NOT want to grow old at all!
According to an article on Mailonline.com, there is a new fire facial that can help you stay young!
Women will always seek out the hottest new beauty treatments in the pursuit of youth. But a new fire facial being performed in Chinese beauty salons means treatments are literally hotter than ever.
Therapists at the salons are offering women the terrifying new treatment - dubbed the flame facial, also known as Huǒ liáo - where open flames are used to stimulate cell regeneration and youthify the complexion.
The therapists apply a towel soaked in alcohol and a so-called 'special elixir' to the skin before setting fire to the area.
Large flames lick up, spreading quickly around the area where the elixir has been applied.
According to the Huffington Post, the treatment 'stimulates the skin and addresses dullness, sagging and wrinkles', while other reports say it can cure everything from obesity to the common cold
One witness to the treatment posted a picture of what he or she said was his mother having the treatment to Chinese message board tt.mop.
His mother's face is bound in what look like towels and flannels while a thick unguent seems to have been applied to her skin.
The salons say that this is a perfectly safe treatment when performed carefully by a trained therapist and that thanks to the application of the elixir, the skin should be warmed, not burned.
But there are undoubtedly multiple risks involved when bare flames are in use, dangers that many women would rather not confront on a visit to the spa.
