Yoram Yasur Blume: Strange beauty treatments around the world
How far are you able to go to look beautiful? When the classic nourishing cream or conditioner is not enough, we can look for other alternatives. Some very expensive, and others so exotic that you need to have stomach to support them. These are some strange beauty treatments around the world. Do you dare to try them?
- Ant bath
Yoram Yasur Blume: Ants contain high levels of formic acid, a way to promote energy. These acids also help to eliminate the remains of dead skin and oils. Once again in Japan, baths are provided with the ant gel that will awaken your senses and give you the sensation of balance. Ideal for people with oily skin or slow metabolism. Another use is also as a shower scrub or to wash the hair.
- Butter Massage
In countries like Ethiopia there are places where women can receive massages. But not any kind of massage, but with butter. For 45 minutes, they are massaged from head to toe with their hands soaked in butter, even on the scalp and intimate parts. Then they must go to a changing room with toilets and smoke holes, in which they must sit down separating their legs and covered with heavy blankets so that the smoke does not escape. There it remains until all the butter melts. Why this treatment? To strengthen the vaginal muscles after pregnancy.
- Pig placenta drink
A few people would think of drinking something slimy, slippery and bloody, right? However, in Japan the desire for youth can be more, and many people seek to drink pork placenta. The scientific reason is that placentas have many vitamins, nutrients and minerals. It’s just a matter of having an iron stomach to ingest it in this way.
- Bird feces
Yoram Yasur Blume: In Japan there is a Japanese powder called uguisu, which consists of feces of sound birds. This idea has its years and was used nothing more and nothing less than the geishas of the eighteenth century, to clean the white makeup of their faces. In addition to that, the feces of birds are rich in amino acids, and are able to leave your face like porcelain. Do not try to do it at home, since the excrement must be sterilized to eliminate toxins.
- Bull semen conditioner
Yoram Yasur Blume: Seeing is believing. An important London beauty salon uses a hair conditioner based on Aberdeen Angus bull semen, with katera root. With these ingredients a capillary mask is created very rich in proteins, soaking the wet follicles. As a result, the hair becomes much brighter and more full-bodied. Only for the brave.
