Not Your Typical Anti-Aging Facial Treatments

There’s no such thing as miracle in a jar but there’s a wide variety of beauty products and spa treatments to help us stay beautiful and young.  Some are even unusual, strange AND expensive. If money isn’t an issue for you, here are 5 of the unusual spa and facial treatments that you can try to target the signs of aging.

1. Chocolate Facial Treatment

Raw cacao or cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolates, is rich in antioxidants and anti-aging properties.  Getting chocolate facial treatments or DIY chocolate facials at home will increase the production of collagen in your skin, resulting to a hydrated, radiant and firm skin.

2. Red Wine Spa Treatment

Calling all grape-connoisseurs, you can now bathe and lather red win on your face and maintain your youth at the same time (that’s what they said).  But on a serious note, red wine (in moderation) is good for your health as it contains resveratrol, an antioxidant that slows the oxidation process (which is responsible for aging), so applying it topically will also give you anti-aging results.

3. Caviar Facial

Those tiny fish eggs on your favorite sushi have become a power-house ingredient in skin care treatments and products.  It’s rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids that promote collagen production and regeneration.  It’s packed with selenium, potassium, Vitamins A and E that help with hydrating and increasing elasticity in the skin, preventing sagging skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

4. Gold Facial

Nothing is fancier than getting a GOLD facial.  This luxurious treatment involves applying 24-karat gold to your skin as it promises to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to make the skin more firm and hydrated.

5. Bee Venom Facial

The new buzz in the skin care industry is used by the Duchess herself, Kate Middleton.  The honey bee venom is used to “trick” the skin into thinking that it has been stung, causing the body to direct blood towards the area, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.

So, which one would you want to try?
