What is this new challenge?
The new salt and ice challenge is a challenge of pain and endurance. In this challenge participants keep salt and ice on their skin and see who can keep it for the longest amount of time. Salt on the skin causes ice to melt that much faster making the temperature on the skin rapidly decreases causing the skin to burn almost like frost bite does.
This challenge usually leaves the participants with severe injuries on hands and limbs or whatever body part they choose to do the challenge on. It causes blisters and first to second degree burns on the skins of the participants depending on the amount of time the ice was kept on the skin. This is the newest fad on the internet and has numerous videos on YouTube of people performing this idiotic and harmful challenge.
