Fire Facials: Crazy Chinese Fire Treatment which sets your face on fire

Women have always had to endure a certain amount of pain to make themselves beautiful. But how far is actually considered too far? Apparently, there isn't a limit to what Chinese women would do to look good, even if it means setting themselves on fire.

The photograph below shows a woman with a thick yellow face-pack, a towel covering half her face and two balls of fire over her eyes. Yet she looks completely unperturbed. Taken by a Chinese girl when she accompanied her mother to the beauty parlor, the pic has been doing the rounds of several websites ever since it was posted on a Chinese message board last month. Along with the pic the girl posted this message: “My mom went to get her face done at the beauty salon so I went with her. What I saw… instantly shocked me… I couldn't look.” Well, she did look long enough to get a nice shot of her mom’s eyes on fire.
Chinese salons claim that the fire treatment is completely safe and harmless, if performed very carefully by highly trained therapists. According to Huo Liao therapist Suzie Lyng, “When administered by a trained therapist, the skin does not get burned but is warmed. Therefore, the procedure is safe.” But an article in the Mail Online says beauticians in the UK are calling it an extremely dangerous treatment.
