Beauty trends can range from the really ridiculous to the really, really ridiculous…
And just when you think you’ve heard it all and nothing would you surprise you anymore? Something like this comes along…
Chelsee Lewis is a “facialist” to the stars. Lewis has been doing her facial thang to celebs including Stella McCartney and Gwenyth Paltrow. Recently, in an interview with MailOnline, she aired some interesting ideas on how to maintain that youthful look for longer…
Lewis claims rubbing sperm into the skin can “boost oxygen and improve circulation to the skin, which will give you an immediate glow.”
Lewis went on to say,
“Using your partner’s sperm as a mask is full of a compound called spermine, which is an antioxidant which can help reduce wrinkles, smooth the skin, prevent acne or spots and give you overall healthy-looking skin.”
Don’t give Walt any ideas! I’m quite happy looking dull as can be if this is the alternative! Get them sequins on, gals! We’re not about this life!
Okay, so she argues a lot of pretty valid points about improved skin but, honestly? Even if this method of skin care had the added benefit of solving global warming, world peace and making me a rich as heck woman, I still wouldn’t be opting in!
You’d think, given the wealthy clientele Lewis is dealing with, they’d be happy to splash the cash on skincare that didn’t involve gross man gunk? Right?!
Come on Gwenyth! You can afford better than this! (Disclaimer; there’s no evidence to suggest Ms. Paltrow has enjoyed this particular facial…)
If you didn’t fancy massaging questionable substances into your face then, fortunately, Chelsee has some alternatives for you!! But be warned, they’re not exactly… low maintenance… Chelsee instructs us;
“Fill the sink with ice cubes and cold water and splash the face 15 to 20 times before applying your makeup. It will leave your skin feeling tighter and brighter, and your makeup will sit beautifully.”
Hm. Yeah, I don’t have time to be giving my noggin’ an ice bath every morning, I’d rather have the extra half hour in bed…
She’s pretty nuts about Coconuts and recommends:
Taking “a teaspoon of coconut oil first thing in the morning before brushing your teeth on an empty stomach. Swish this around the mouth 15 to 20 minutes. You will feel your lower face starting to ache as it’s exercising the lower muscles in the face. If you stick to the same regime on a regular basis you will feel your face starting to get tighter.
