People will do just about anything in the pursuit of beauty, and we’re talking about some pretty crazy extremes—it’s fairly common for people inject fat into their faces to look youthful, after all. But the craziest new beauty trend on our radar has people literally freezing themselves—at temperatures as low as negative 292 degrees—to look young.
Cryotherapy apparently produces a natural high.
During the three-minute sessions, clients are placed in a 6-foot-tall tubular machine pumping out air hovering between an icy minus 184 and minus 292 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s the treatment du jour for people who want to boost their metabolism, loosen their muscles, flatten their stomachs, reduce cellulite and allegedly burn up to 800 calories without moving a muscle.
Lindsay Lohan, Derek Hough, Mandy Moore, Yoko Ono, Bobbi Brown and Daniel Craig all use cryotherapy.
