In modern history, people have been trying to stay young as much as they could. Medicine, pharmaceutical products, surgery, and many other sciences all work together in order to extend human life, and make us immortal. However, immortality seems to be unreachable, at least for now, but we have made a significant progress in that direction by changing the looks of our skin and helping it stay young and intact. Different treatments, facials with freaky ingredients and other natural products have proved to give us some hope that immortality is actually attainable. In the following few paragraphs you will read about some facials that you would never in your life believe existed.
1. Fire Facial
This ancient treatment comes from China, a nation that does not seem to show signs of ageing. This treatment consists of lighting up a towel soaked with alcohol. Literally, setting it on fire, yes. If you are not afraid of putting a burning towel on your face, try this rejuvenating facial that cured tired-looking skin. It can also spark weight loss and even help you fight colds. And do not worry, the towel is removed from your face before it gets burned, so no worries on getting fried.
2. Sheep Placenta Facial
Who would think people would put sheep placenta on their skin? Well, people who want to stay young, such as Victoria Beckham. After a lamb is born, its placenta is taken and from it a serum is made. This serum ends up in your face and it helps in reversing the signs of ageing. If you are not really sure if it works, take another look at Posh.
3. Bee Venom
If you are not allergic to bee venom, you should definitely try this treatment. It consists in pumping up bee venom into your skin so as to induce the creation of collagen and straighten the lines and wrinkles in your skin. This facial is actually one of the secrets of Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue. Who knew?
4. Bird Poop Facial
Another ancient Eastern treatment, bird poop facial comes from ancient Japan where Geishas used to put nightingale droppings on their faces (in powdered form, of course) in order to take off their makeup and bring back lustre in their cheeks. This treatment is available in many beauty salons, with the difference that the droppings are actually sanitised before they reach your face.
5. Vampire Facelift
Another quirky one, this one simply beats bird poop and semen. Probably you have heard about the Hungarian Duchess Erzsebeth Bathory who used to bathe in the blood of virgins. Well, this treatment has something to do with her case, and that is – blood. This treatment consists of drawing out your own blood (which an aesthetician draws out from your veins) and putting in back into your face. This process sparks the creation of collagen and gives your face more elasticity and youthful glow.
Even though these treatments look a bit silly or bizarre, the fact is that they actually help us in maintaining the youthful look of our skin. If you are not a fan of experimenting, you can simply stick to the microdermabrasion procedure. After all, it is done by experts in the field and nothing can go wrong. And as long as it helps us stay young, we shall use it.
