So, what effect does this have on your skin? Well, it starts feeling very strange very quickly. People report sensations of numbness and pain. However, the point of the challenge is to keep holding the ice down on the skin for as long as possible.
The longer the super-cold ice is pressed onto the skin, the more damage will occur and the “tougher” the person will look. However, the ice is so cold that it’s almost the same as placing dry ice directly onto your body.
