Fire Facial Treatment ‘Burns’ Wrinkles off – and Maybe Your Face – in the Process

Now here’s another weird beauty treatment that might just overshadow Kim Kardashian’s gruesome-looking blood facials. No blood is going to be drawn or injected when these facials are done, although your face will be covered with a towel and set on fire in the middle of the whole process.

Flaming Facial

I kid you not. It’s called the Huǒ liáo treatment and it’s currently gaining a lot of traction in China. The procedure involves covering the victim’s person’s face, legs, and other treatment areas with a towel soaked in alcohol and a ‘special elixir.’ It is then set ablaze for a few seconds before it dies out.

According to the people behind it, the burning process stimulates the skin and treats dullness, sagging, and wrinkles. It doesn’t look like the safest or sanest thing to do, but then again, when have women been sane when it comes to beauty?
