The Kardashian-Jenner's will pretty much try anything when it comes to beauty. Last year, Kylie Jenner made her lip filler habit public. (Although, we were already well aware, thanks to anecdotal evidence.) And recently, Kendall admitted to painting her bedroom walls pink to supress hunger.
Now, thanks to Khloe Kardashian's new show Revenge Body, we know that Kendall and Kylie often visit celebrity dermatologist Christie Kidd for an acne fighting facial, involving dry ice and acetone.
Introducing the slush facial.
Usually, a slush treatments starts with an exfoliation of the skin using dry ice wrapped in gauze and dipped in acetone. [NB: If acetone sounds familiar, that's because it's usually found in nail polish remover.]
Dr. Ronald Moy, founder of DNA Renewal, is sceptical about these slush facials. "These are old treatments often used in young patients for acne treatment, especially before we had effective acne medications," he says. "These dry ice/acetone treatments exfoliate and peel. They can unclog some pores and remove some dead skin."
"They work best on young patients who do not need very effective treatments because they do little. They are dramatic in that the dry ice acetone combination causes a cloud of smoke. (Smoke but No mirrors). The secret to their glowing skin is their young age and unlikely due to this old treatment."
Well… it may not be an effective way of fighting acne but at least it sounds cool?
