If there鈥檚 anyone who鈥檚 down to try a crazy beauty + health trend, it鈥檚 a celebrity. From cupping to getting stung by bees (on purpose!), there鈥檚 little we haven鈥檛 heard about. One trend that鈥檚 taken over LaLa Land as of late is cryotherapy. Basically, it鈥檚 a treatment in which you spend three-minutes in a freezing tank. It鈥檚 supposed to help with health issues like Alzheimer鈥檚, migraines, anxiety and chronic pain. It鈥檚 even rumored to boost metabolism. But according to the FDA, that鈥檚 all unproven and celebs may have basically been submitting themselves to frostbite conditions for nothing.

The FDA recently released a report stating that they have no evidence that WBC (whole body cryotherapy) can effectively treat all the diseases or conditions it says it can. The organization writes, 鈥淲e found very little evidence about its safety or effectiveness in treating the conditions for which it is being promoted.鈥 In fact, it says that submitting yourself to negative 240-degree temps could have a reverse effect.

鈥淧otential hazards include asphyxiation, especially when liquid nitrogen is used for cooling,鈥 says the FDA. 鈥淭he addition of nitrogen vapors to a closed room lowers the amount of oxygen in the room and can result in hypoxia, or oxygen deficiency, which could lead the user to lose consciousness. Moreover, subjects run the risk of frostbite, burns, and eye injury from the extreme temperatures.鈥

Yikes. Maybe we鈥檒l go ahead and sit this one out.
