Bizarre worldwide beauty treatments

From venom creams, to semen hair treatments, nothing seems to be too much when it comes to making yourself beautiful and young. Here’s some of the most bizarre beauty tricks ever:

An aggressive procedure seems to be the latest weird anti-aging beauty trick. In San Francisco, Tata Massage saloon is offering a $350 slap in the face. The owner says this is a natural alternative to Botox. The treatment includes intense slapping, pinching and smoothing to lift and firm one’s complexion.



The Ada Barak spa in northern Israel promises to take away all the stress from your muscles and joints, in a bit stranger way: putting six non-venomous snakes on your back. The owner says that if you succeed to overcome your fears, you will benefit of a really distressing massage. All the fun costs $70.

Snails seem to have magical regenerative properties, according to the brand that produces a Snail Serum line, which is meant to soften your skin like no other. Based on the secretions of the Chilean snail “Helix Aspersa Muller”, the brand says the extraordinary combination of protein and vitamins is good for your complexion. The average price for a product is $70.

A UK saloon does some type of hair masks way different than the classic ones. They combine bovine sperm with a plant a plant root called katera, and they rub it into your hair. The mask is supposed to deeply nourish and revitalize your hair. If you decide to try it, prepare yourself to stay in the saloon for about 45 minutes, and pay around  $100.

Snakes are not to be feared too much in the cosmetic industry. If you don’t like the idea of a snake massage, then maybe you could try a cream with snake venom. The Ultraluxe skincare line of cosmetic say the Syn-ake synthetic venom cream is meant to inhibit muscle contractions in the face and give it a healthier, younger look, in a way similar to what botox does. So would you “paralyze” your face with a $185 anti-aging cream?


Garra Rufa fish treatments are popular around the world as they give your feet a different type of pedicure. After you put your feet in a tank with water and fishes, they will star eating away the dead skin cells that make your skin feel rough. A 30-minute session costs about $25.

Why bother with layering caviar creams on your face when you can go for the raw caviar instead? At Channing’s Day Spa in Chicago, freeze-dried caviar, imported from Switzerland, is put on the face and it’s absorbed into the skin by way of an electric current, which treats fine lines and wrinkles under the surface. Caviar is full of amino acids, vitamins and antioxidants that help the skin repair faster, and give an instant glow. 60 minutes of treatment cost $185.


You already know that wine is good for your heart, but it’s also good for your skin. At theYunessun Spa in Hakone, Japan, you can lie a whole day in a huge bath of red wine, for your skin to suck all the antioxidants from it. A day at the spa will cost you around $36.
