Beauty has become more of a science in the last few years. Pioneers in the cosmetic industry find different innovations in makeup and skincare seemingly every day. While some of these products are amazing and accepted with little to no questioning, other products raise eyebrows all across the Internet. Here are some of the strangest, but effective, beauty products:
Baby Quasar MD Plus Light Therapy Device
This weird, heat-lamp looking device harbors NASA grade technology. It uses infrared light therapy technology that astronauts used for cell regrowth on wounds. It turns out light therapy like this kind can aide in wrinkle reduction.
Most people get squeamish when thinking about eating escargot, so you can imagine the public reaction of putting snail secretions on your face. However, snail mucin contains a lot of beneficial properties for hydration, soothing damaged skin, and signs of aging.
Another weird ingredient with shocking benefits, but don’t worry these products aren’t made of actual placentas, just synthetic ones. SkinPro’s Bio-Placenta Revitalizing Serum uses five peptides that are identical to the “life-giving growth factors” in an actual placenta. It is tested to improve under eye wrinkles.
Tomato Face Mask
Tomato may be the second to last (snail cream takes the cake) thing you want to put on your face. But, it turns out that tomato water contains lycopene, which prevents damaged cells from growing, and other high antioxidant properties. However, this product may not be ideal for those with sensitive skin.
OMNI Nasolabial Iron
This product is an actual iron to smooth out wrinkles on your face. It uses radio waves to stimulate muscles to prevent wrinkles, laugh lines and other signs of aging, as well as heat to improve blood circulation.
Hair dye for… “down there”
The dye brand “Betty” launched an entire line of hair dye for pubic hairs, specifically to be used for your bikini area. They make a variety of colors for customers to choose from, including a kit with stencils for fun shapes. A very interesting way to spice up your Valentine’s Day.
Crystal Face Rollers
Face rollers were HUGE in 2018, especially ones made out of crystals. I don’t know too much about the healing properties of rocks too well, but I do know that a lot of people are all about crystals being infused into their beauty routines. However, I have to say I’m perplexed at how rolling a crystal on your face can be beneficial but it is! Amethyst face rollers, for example, help with blood flow and elasticity, boosting collagen, reducing puffs and wrinkles, and combats under eye circles.
