Yup. You read that correctly.
This is one of those trends that I might consider filing in my imaginary “hell no” folder, along with treatments that contain placenta or bull sperm.
Evidently, British skincare brand Rodial has launched a new product called Glamoxy Snake Serum. It claims to work like Botox, aka Botulism Toxin (oh yeah, add that to my folder, too) by relaxing wrinkles. The fact that it is applied topically, makes me rather skeptical of the company’s claims. The only way to “relax” wrinkles is by relaxing the muscles, and no topical serum can be absorbed into the muscles.
The people at Sonya Dakar in Beverly Hills would probably disagree with me, because they claim to be responsible for bringing snake venom to the left coast with their Snake Venom Facial and cream. Maybe I am unfairly skeptical. When it comes to beauty, I will try almost anything once. That said, I think I will wait for the next great beauty trend to explore.
I was so amused by the lengths people have gone to for beauty, that I thought I would share a few these gems with you. My personal fave is the fish pedicure. It’s just so creepy…and probably quite ticklish.
Would you try any of these?:
