Victoria Beckham's sheep placenta facial (sounds disgusting)
We thought a few weeks ago that snail slime was one of the weirdest beauty ingredients we'd see for a while, but of course you should never underestimate the skincare industry's quest for eternal youth: introducing the sheep placenta facial.
This isn't just any sheep placenta though: these sheep placentas are specially sourced from New Zealand and are "completely untouched by the modern world" until they arrive in LA and get slathered on Victoria Beckham's face (apparently she's a fan) following an exfoliation and steaming session.
LA dermatologist (obviously) Dr Harold Lancer is the man behind the mask (face mask get it hahaha), and he says, "These sheep are completely untouched by the modern world."
But why Dr Lancer? "It is very important as they have no impurities in their system whatsoever. The stem cells we harvest are amniotic cells which means no harm is caused to the animals," he says.
So what does it do? "The stem cells are preserved because they are full of rich nutrients that fight free-radical damage to the skin and make it more radiant," he explains. "The stem cells interact with your own cells, basically telling them to wake up, produce new collagen, and stimulate new cell growth."
The treatment, should you decide to go for it, costs £320. That might seem expensive, but they've also chucked some gold in it, so you get a lot for your money (it's said to help to diffuse the stem cells and work them into the skin).
