Celebrities are the one who are the epitome of beauty and elegance. We all are curious to know their beauty secrets but less we know about their weird facial treatments. Many celebrities to rejuvenate and make their skin glow use some of the weirdest and craziest facial treatments. From bee venom, to their own blood and "penises", it seems like there's no end to the crazy celeb beauty fads. Here are the craziest things celebrities are putting on their faces to get younger looking skin.
1. Cate Blanchett and her “Penis Facial”
It seems quite freaking and weird to treat your face with something phallic. This facial treatment was however named as “penis facial” because it is done by extracting stem cells from the circumcised foreskin of Korean babies. It is quite difficult to understand how is that supposed to make us feel better about it but both Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock have treated their facial skin with it got great help with elastin and collagen regeneration.
2. Kim Kardashian and Her Vampire Facial Treatment
In Vampire Facial treatment, your own blood is used which is centrifuged to gain the platelets. This is then mixed in with hyaluronic acid based fillers like Juvederm or Restylane and then is injected back into the face. This treatment is best known to boost skin’s regenerative powers and recover the appearance of wrinkles.
3. Victoria Beckham and The Nightingale Facial
The Nightingale Facial is a treatment done with bird poo- nightingale poo. The practice dated back to the 17th century Japan, to the Edo period, where geishas discovered that the enzymes found in the excrement are used to repair the skin damaged from makeup containing high concentrations of mercury (yikes). Victoria Beckham in her visit to Japan was intrigued by the use of nightingale poo and found a place in New York which offers her this very strange treatment.
4. Gwyneth Paltrow and Bee Venom
Gwyneth uses unconventional beauty tips to get clear skin. She gets stung by bees and this is definitely the top on her weird beauty list. In an interview with The New York Times in 2016, Gwyneth told about the bee venom facial treatments, or Apitherapy. She used it to help with inflammation and scarring.
5. Jennifer Lopez and the Placenta Facial
Beautiful JLo doesn’t has the perfect facial skin one wish for. She doesn’t seem to have aged at all in the last decade and the secret behind it may be the placenta facial treatment. Like the “Penis Facial”, we have no idea where these human placentas are found or harvested from, but it is known that they are rich in protein and iron, and reportedly useful in skin regeneration.
