If you think you have already heard about weird facial treatments, think again because I am going to talk about some of the most cringe worthy beauty treatments that women tend to go for. It’s interesting what we do for beauty; we are up for trying anything, even if it doesn’t seem rational. I am all for using natural ingredients for beauty but these treatments are not what I had in mind. Read on for seven of the most unbelievably weird facial treatments that you will probably ever learn about.
This is probably one of the mildest out of all weird facial treatments in the degree of its strangeness, but it is still unconventional. Several spas around the world believe that fish eggs might soon replace Botox because of their effectiveness. They believe that freeze-dried caviar can repair UV damage and ameliorate the appearance of wrinkles. Caviar is very rich in Vitamins A, B and D, making caviar facials great if you are looking for healthy and radiant skin. Would you be up for it?
Just the sound of venom is very unsettling but this beauty facial is actually another natural alternative to Botox. Don’t worry, this mask doesn’t require any actual bee stinging. Instead the venom is put into a cream, which is applied on the face twice a week. The bee venom contains melittin, which is responsible for the pain when a bee stings you, and because your body thinks that it is under attack, it sends circulation and skin tightening collagen for help. This mask is actually famous among celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Kate Middleton.
There are some people who choose to eat placenta but there are others who use it as a mask. Believe it or not, lamb placental extract is used to formulate a face cream which is rich in bio-stimulant and nutrients. It is often used to moisturize and bring your skin to life. It’s a very odd concept but it is widely accepted by people around the world.
Always wanted to brighten your complexion and cleanse your skin? Then don’t shy away from bird poo facials! This beauty treatment has been used for centuries by none others than Japanese Geishas, who are known for their porcelain complexions. They actually used nightingale droppings as cleansers and now several spas are following their footsteps, and offering bird boo facials for a brighter and clearer skin.
Again I am not a big fan of snakes or venom so you can only imagine how I feel about this mask. Just the thought of it makes me cringe. On the contrary, many celebrities likes Gwyneth Paltrow swear by this cream, saying that it is very similar to Botox in plumping the skin. Gwyneth Paltrow does seem to have youthful skin, but I am sure there are other alternatives that achieve the same results!
Gold is not just pretty to look at; it can also prevent aging and stave off cellulite, which is why it used as an ingredient for facials. As weird as it sounds, some spas in Florida actually paint your whole body with 24-carat gold! So if you have extra cash lying around somewhere, try out this luxurious beauty treatment!
As if placentas and venoms weren’t enough to put on your face, people can actually get their blood applied as a facial. Some say that the platelets from your blood are rich in plasma, which can rejuvenate your face with growth factors and deposit more collagen. So if you prefer to go natural with your beauty facials, you can consider this treatment!
All of these facial treatments are pretty bizarre for my taste. They are just ridiculously expensive and unconventional to apply on your face. However, if you had the chance, which facial treatment would you try out?
