Victoria Beckham- Bird Poop
As disgusting as it sounds bird poop skin treatment turns out to be a holy grail for skin leaving it soft and glowing. Aging Hollywood fashion star Victoria Beckham has hugged on to this facial and is absolutely overjoyed with the results as it tightens the pores of skin thereby reducing acne, wrinkles and fine lines. The poop facial is made from dehydrated Nightingale poop mixed with water and rice barn.
Gwyneth Paltrow- Snake Venom
The Iron Man star is reportedly using a synthetic snake-venom based product called ‘Syn-ake’ that supposedly acts as a topical Botox. The theory behind this product is that when a snake attacks, it paralyzes its victim with the venom. Hence, using a product with the same specimen will smooth out wrinkles and relax face muscles.
Kim Kardashian- Vampire Facial
Kim spends it all to maintain her highly photographed face with the help of this treatment. The Vampire Facelift is basically blood drawn from the client’s arm, where the platelets are extracted and then injected in the face to prevent wrinkles. What can we say, beauty hurts!
Demi Moore- Leech Therapy
The Charlie’s Angels villain goes extreme even with her looks. She travelled to Europe to experience the detoxifying treatment of leech therapy. Leeches are slimy blood-sucking parasites that some of us would rather run away from. The leeches suck blood from your skin while releasing enzymes that are meant to remove toxins from your blood.
Kate Hudson- Ice Water Dunk
Kate Hudson’s flawless beauty is a chilling experience. She says “A makeup artist who has worked with dozens of people said ‘I used to work with this actor and every day he would stick his face in an ice bath. A little water and a lot of ice. And he would just stick his face in and try to be in there as long as he could, sort of dab off, and go back in.’ I started doing it.”
And how long does Kate keep her head in the freezing water? “It depends how badly I want it,” she smiles.
The benefits of this treatment are minimization of pores, effective blood circulation of skin and prevention of excessive sebum build up.
