Excuse Me, But You Have Something on Your Face: Strange Beauty Treatments
It seems that some women will do just about anything to try to turn back the hands of time. Our grandmothers used natural things like egg whites and honey to keep their skin soft and glowing, and beer for shining hair, but you may be surprised at some of the natural ingredients that are showing up in high end beauty products these days.
Snail Goo Moisturizer
Elicina Europe has developed a cream that users claim that not only does this cream that is 80% Snail Goo keep their skin soft and radiant, but has helped to erase fine lines and acne scars. The miarcle properties of Snail Goo were discovered in 1980 by a Chilean family who raised snails for the French food market. The workers noticed that not only were their hands unnaturally soft, but small cuts seemed to heal very quickly. In 1995 after fifteen years of study, Elicina Cream was made available to the South American cosmetic market.
Bull Semen Facials
London hairdresser to the stars hari Salem has developed a product made of pedigree Aberdeen Angus bull semen and Katera, a protein rich plant root grown in Iran that he calls “Viagra for hair” For £85 your hair will be covered in the solutionand left for thirty minutes. After it is rinsed and blow dried you are out the door, aparently with a head of nourished, healthy, unbelievably shiny hair.
Bird Poo Facial
If you stop by Hari`s Salon in London for a Bull Semen hair masque, you might as well stay for a Nightingale Poo Facial. The guanine in Nightingale Poo is packed with illuminating amino acids that brighten the skin and have been used for centuries by the Japanese.
Breast Milk Soap
At Mothersmoon.com you can order products made with, you guessed it: Mothers Milk. Available in a variety of scents and healing properties, all of the products are made from the breast milk of the company`s owner. She made her first batch for her son`s first birthday and gave the bars away as gifts to her guests. She started her her company soon after. Bars cost $4-$5 for a three oz bar. Her son is seven years old now. Makes you wonder how long she can stay in business. This one is not for me thanks.
These are just a few of the strange things that people are willing to use in the name of beauty. Would you be willing to try them?
