Rarely will you find people not giving you attention when you mention you have a ‘beauty secret’. Its natural, ever since we evolved tons and tons of stuff has been done around the world, researches conducted, experiments done, all to find a newer and faster way to look prettier. I am totally for it, like who doesn’t want to look good. Here the question is till what extent you will go, what all will you tolerate to have smoother skin, healthier hair and a glowing complexion.
So, here are the weirdest, wackiest beauty rituals from across the world I came across.
So ladies, are you game for some snail excretions and bull sperms .Made a face already? I dare you to read further.
1. England: Bull-Sperm Hair Treatment
Hari’s Salon in London offers a bull-sperm conditioning treatment for troubled tresses. Mixed with katera root, an Iranian plant, the protein-packed concoction is believed to reinvigorate colored, overprocessed, and/or frizzy hair types. This ejaculation will make you lighter by around eighty to hundred pounds for a 40 minute treatment.
2. Japan: Bird-Droppings Facial
Offered in spas across the U.S., facials with bird droppings originated in Japan centuries ago. Actors would use the famed nightingale droppings to remove their thick white makeup: The enzyme- and guanine-packed paste proved to be an expert exfoliator. Additionally, the high nitrogen content of nightingale droppings removes bacteria and dead skin cells from the dermis more gently than acid peels. Wary of applying bird excrement to your face? Unlike in ancient Japanese culture, today’s nightingale facials are performed using a sterilized powder form of droppings
3. Chile: Snail Secretions
When it was discovered that handlers on a Chilean snail farm had exceptionally smooth hands, the beauty industry took notice. Many believe that the snail secretions (released by snails to repair and protect) are beneficial to human skin as well. As a result, a variety of face creams containing this supposedly therapeutic fluid have become available.
4. Austria: Leech Detox
If you thought the leech detox went out of style centuries ago, think again: Despite health risks, blood-sucking leeches are still used in Austrian spas today, and they even have a celebrity fan. Actress Demi Moore spoke of her “leech therapy”, telling the host that the experience helped detoxify her blood (whatever that means). Moore went on to describe how four leeches got drunk on her blood (the feasting began at her belly button), how they don’t like hair and prefer waxed or shaved skin, and, yes—how she plans to go back for more. Gross!
5. Mexico: Cactus Massage and Tequila Body Scrub
Think Mexico, Think Tequila. But as a spa treatment, incorporating these two entities seems pretty unusual. While the body massage involves being massaged with actual cactus paddies, the margarita body scrub is made from tequila, salt, and fresh lime juice. The reasoning behind these two procedures? Cactus is thought to be healing and detoxifying, while the sea salts impart minerals, lime acts as a natural astringent and conditioner, and tequila purifies.
So which one are you going to try???? I am all game for the last one. Minus the cactus, of course 😉 😉 😉
I know the pictures are not quite relevant, but the actual pictures were quite gross to be published here. 🙂
