Bizarre Beauty Treatments

by Natural_Skin_Care

There are some bizarre beauty treatments out there. Amazingly, some of them actually work. Continue reading to see if some of these strange skin care remedies will work for you.

Many 'old wives tales' claim to work for difficult skin conditions, but are actually nonsense. I've heard things as crazy as using urine soaked diapers for acne -- by the way, I don't recommend doing that. I'm sure you've heard your share of odd beauty treatments as well.

However, there are some weird beauty treatments out there that actually work. The truth is that just because something sounds strange doesn't mean it won't work. You just need to do your research to find out if there is any science behind the claim. Some weird sounding beauty treatments are popular because they really work.

The beauty treatments I'm going to share may sound bizarre, but today there is real proof to show why they actually work.

World's 5 Most Bizarre Beauty Treatments

Snail Slime Cream

Snail Slime

If ever there was a creature known for being slimy, it's the snail. So why would anyone put slimy snail secretions on their face? Actually, there are a few good reasons to do this.

Snail cream helps with regeneration of skin cells and healing acne scars. It's also is an excellent moisturizer and brightens the skin. But why does it work so well?

Snails have skin and a shell that needs to be repaired too. The slime contains allantoin, elastin, and collagen which are good for our skin. It also has antibacterial and antioxidant properties. People who use this natural skin care remedy claim it restores elasticity, moisturizes, improves scar healing, and reduces acne. 

If you decide to incorporate snail slime cream into your natural skin care regimen, make sure to look for a product that is organic. You'll void any benefits of using it if the manufacturer has added toxic chemicals as preservatives.

Snake Venom

Snake Venom

The cobra family of snakes, along with some vipers and rattlesnakes, produces venom that contains neurotoxins which paralyze their prey.

The beauty industry realized that venom has a similar effect to Botox so it has developed a synthetic form of snake venom that can be applied to the face in a cream, rather than be injected.

Since it is not injected, it is less invasive. Venom used to create the synthetic form comes from snake farms in Brazil where the snakes are milked to collect their venom.

 Snake venom cream is supposed to work by blocking some receptors which relaxes the muscle and smoothes out wrinkles. Some users report that the cream also moisturizes their skin. It may not be as effective as Botox, but is a reasonable alternative for those who would rather not receive injections as an anti-wrinkle remedy.

Bird Poop Facial

Bird Poop FacialJapanese women have used nightingale poop--uguiso no fun--in facial masks for centuries. Long ago, Japanese geishas and Kabuki actors suffered from skin problems due to the use of makeup that contained zinc and lead. Using nightingale droppings helped to heal their skin.

But why does it work? Thanks to science we know that Japanese nightingale droppings contain the enzyme guanine which is part of human DNA. It speeds healing and gives the same result as having a light acid peel, but without the redness and burning sensation that often accompanies this type of treatment.

A few years ago when British Spice Girl Victoria Beckham finally cleared up her acne, she credited this treatment and it became trendy outside of Japan. Nowadays, New York spas charge as much as $180 for a bird poop facial, but you don't have to travel there or pay anywhere near that amount.Sterilized nightingale droppings can be purchased inexpensively online.

Simply lather up with your favorite facial cleanser and add some of the droppings into the palm of your hand. Wash your face as usual and over time you'll start to see the wonderful results of this bizarre but beneficial bird poop facial.

It does make you wonder about who would use bull semen on their hair. Good thing it worked.

Wow! Who would have guessed? It makes one wonder -- who were the first ones to try any of these remedies? It's amazing how many healing properties are out there in the natural world.

@WriterArtist I'm surprised anyone has heard of them at all. Thanks for commenting!

I had heard of the bird poop and the snails but not the snake venom cream. These are really weird ingredients that are effective.
