What if you were promised fewer wrinkles, younger-looking skin, even slimmer thighs … if you set your body on fire?
While that sounds totally dangerous, and sort of counter-productive to us, the Huǒ liáo treatment, or “fire facial,” is gaining serious traction in China, where the spa service originated.
