Flaming Facials Are The Latest Beauty Trend In China

Who knew that the true key to beauty was to literally set your face on fire?

Apparently it’s the latest trend in China, as women in beauty salons are turning up the heat with flaming facials.

Known as Huǒ liáo, open flames are used to stimulate cell regeneration and make the complexion look younger.

The therapists apply a towel soaked in alcohol and a “special elixir” to the skin before setting fire to the face. 

The Huffington “Post says the treatment “stimulates the skin and addresses dullness, sagging and wrinkles.”

Others have gone so far as to claim it can cure everything from obesity to the common cold.

Would you set your face on fire to look younger?

Unicorn In Tutu Gracefully Videobombs News Reporter Live Broadcast

I cannot give this reporter enough credit for handling this situation the way he did. I’m glad I was warned that he was going to be video-bombed by a unicorn because I would have just thought I was hallucinating based on his utter lack of reaction. That’s the mark of a true master of local […]


The SWAG Pill Is Everything Wrong With The Sexual Culture Of America

This country has gone to sh*t apparently, with the release of a sex supplement called S.W.A.G. — the not-so-smart acronym for “Sex With A Grudge.” Sold in certain New York bodegas, this little white pill alleges that consumers will be empowered to “hurt it” and “kill it” — “it” being the woman the guy in […]
