For generations, people have been going to extreme lengths to achieve younger-looking skin. From expensive lotions and potions to risky cosmetic surgery - it seems people will do anything to look young. Even smothering their face in sperm.
No, you heard me correctly. According to a professional facialist to the stars, celebs are now lathering their face with semen in order to reduce wrinkles and look younger.
Celebrity beauty expert Chelsee Lewis - who has worked with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney (although, it is unknown if these two stars have actually opted for this, ahem, "treatment") - claims that not only are people very willing to undergo the treatment, but that its effects are one of the best options out there!
Speaking to the MailOnline, Chelsee said:
"It's one of the best ways to boost oxygen and improve circulation to the skin, which will give you an immediate glow.
"Sexual intercourse helps the stress hormone but also helps to balance the hormones and improve collagen production. But you can go one step further with a sperm mask. Yes, you heard right!
"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."If you think that's weird? Check out these ancient beauty hacks:
But, if you're like most people out there and you don't fancy rubbing your partner's 'layonnaise' on your face, Chelsee does suggest a few - shall we say - less intimate methods for achieving a flawless complexion.
For example, you could try this rather bizarre method of invigorating the facial muscles:
"Take a teaspoon of coconut oil first thing in the morning before brushing your teeth on an empty stomach. Swish this around the mouth for 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.
"But this also has other benefits, including antibacterial and antioxidant - it also boosts energy, gives you whiter, stronger teeth and helps clear the skin of impurities, acne, and rashes."
But if swishing a greasy oil around your mouth first thing in the morning isn't your idea of a beauty regime, then fear not! Because Chelsee also suggests rooting around your freezer for some regular ice cubes, as she explains:
"This is one of my favourites for waking up tired-looking skin. 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."
And finally, if semen, coconut oil, and ice cubes aren't your idea of a therapeutic night in, you can always try opting for an ultrasound treatment to ward off those aging lines:
"It's growing increasingly popular for tightening and for anti-ageing and is one of the latest pieces of technology on the market right now.
"HIFU face is a non-surgical facelift treatment using high-intensity focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose or sagging skin on the neck and face without any downtime.
"It works by focusing energy to help stimulate the deep support layers of the skin without causing damage to the skin surface. The treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen, resulting in a lifted, firmer and more toned appearance of the skin.
"Results will develop over the course of two to three months with some clients experiencing continued improvement for up to six months."
So, you don't need the fountain of eternal youth is stay looking young - you just need an ultrasound machine, ice, coconut oil, and a very understanding man nearby!
