When celebrities give out tips on their skin care regimes we usually listen very carefully, because who wouldn’t want the clear and healthy skin of someone who is constantly looking camera ready.
Take Sandra Bullock for example. A MEGA hollywood star who never seems to have a single pimple pop up on her beautifully bright face. But how does he keeps her skin in such great shape? Well the answer may shock you.
Apparently Sandra Bullock gets something called a “penis facial” when she visits a beauty spa! Yep you read that correctly, a PENIS facial.
Cate Blanchette revealed that her Oceans 8 co-star gets the odd spa treatment in an interview with Vogue Australia and said that Sandra actually dragged her along to one!
“Sandy [Sandra] Bullock and I saw this facials in New York, Georgia Louise, and she gives what we call the penis facials and it’s something,” said Cate. “I don’t know what is is, or whether it’s just ‘cause it smells a bit like sperm – there’s some enzyme in it so Sandy refers to it as the penis facial.”
Well it turns out that this enzyme that Cate mentions is actually Epidermal Growth Factor. Now if you don’t know what that is, and just a warning this is about to get extremely weird, according to the facialist’s website the enzyme is taken “from the progenitor cells of the human fibroblast taken from Korean newborn baby foreskin.”
So yep, penis facial would be a correct description there Sandra… Apparently it’s great for your skin because it “helps to generate collagen and elastin.”
We have no idea why the facial specifically requires Korean baby foreskin but the facialist revealed that it’s collected “during circumcision and the stem cells are then harvested and extracted through a centrifuge.”
Of course we all want skin like Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchette but if you’re thinking ‘sign me up for one of these bad boys’ we should warn you that the perfect celeb-worthy skin is a bit out of reach.
It’ll cost you a whopping $650 for the treatment and you’ll have to go a two-year waiting list. That’s just a money, time and effort than us normal folk are willing to spend on our skin care we think…
