Bizarre beauty treatments from around the world!

Does a frightful 'vampire facelift' turn your stomach? Weird and wonderful beauty treatments are becoming the norm, but sometimes it still amazes us how far people go for beauty... Take a look out Huffington Post’s round-up - would you try any of them?

Bull's Sperm Hair Care
Dubbed the, 'Viagra for hair', this hair conditioning treatment is derived from the sperm of a bull. Combined with a protein-rich Katera root, this treatment promises to help repair broken hair and give it a silky smooth look...

Cactus Massage
A cactus would be the last thing you think of when dreaming about a relaxing massage, but the spiky cactus leaf can be used as a massaging instrument. A prick-free cactus pad is used to rub down the skin and help bring out the toxins, whilst absorbing a blend of hydrating cactus meringue and cactus blossom into your skin.
Derriere Facial
It's not just your face that deserves a little TLC... In the US, the new 'butt facial' is a treatment that is designed to tone, de-blemish, massage, and polish your neglected derriere.
Placenta Face Cream
The placenta has another use other than feeding an unborn baby - as an anti-ageing beauty cream! For the cream, lamb placental extract is taken to create a potent lotion which rich in nutrients and bio-stimulants, promising to revitalise and moisturise your skin.
Hay Body Wrap
In Italy, you can indulge (if you could call it that) with a wet hay body wrap. But before you conjure images of a scratchy experience, this treatment has a twist - you soak in a water bed heated to over 100F degrees while you're wrapped in the hay. The unusual treatment is said to fortify your immune system and stimulate your metabolism.

  1. I guess this is how they got the idea of sperm gel for the movie Something About Mary. =)

    1. LOL .. that was good huh...

  2. The lengths some people will go to for beauty! Also, this does give you the impression that there are a lot of things out there that claim a lot of beauty benefits but it has not been proven. Enjoy the day!

  5. This is a very interesting post, Nava! But I don't think I'll ever go for Hay Body Wrap and Cactus Massage. :)

  6. LOL...I think I'll pass on these latest innovations! A regular old facial is fine with me.

    PS...I keep my bread/rolls in the freezer...even with the 5 of us, it does go stale quickly. I just pull out what we need for the day.

  7. Cactus Massage sounds pretty painful

  8. hi nava, i think i trust the ayurvedic and olive oil treatment anytime..already proven since ancient times.
    people have the tendencies to try out new things, but may not be good- just loud advertising..

  9. Walauwei all the treatments so weird....I am not dare to try especially the cactus...

  14. These things sound so crazy...but I swear I just heard about a US politican who uses something like the placenta facials.
