Hollywood is known for being a little ahead of the rest of the world when it comes to up and coming fashion and beauty trends, but I'm not entirely sure this one is ever gonna go mainstream.
Kate Beckinsale is the latest celebrity to get an EGF Facial, more commonly known as the "Penis Facial".
So what's a penis facial?
Well, as disgusting as it sounds, the actual process may even be weirder than you can imagine.
While Georgia Louise, the celebrity facialist that specializes in EGF facials, won't share too many secrets about what goes into her secret facial cream, but one of the ingredients is derived from newborn baby foreskin. She says that the enzyme is not taken directly from baby foreskins, but derived from a clone of the foreskin and developed in a lab.
Cate Blanchett leaked some info about it back in March, telling Vogue Australia, saying
Sandy Bullock and I saw this facialist in New York, Georgia Louise, and she gives what we call the penis facial and it’s something – I don’t know what it is, or whether it’s just cause it smells a bit like sperm – there’s some enzyme in it so Sandy refers to it as the penis facial.
According to her website,
The facial includes a cleanse, followed by an intensive yet painless TCA peel, micro-needling with stemcell application followed an electrifying galvanic alginate mask to calm, hydrate and cool the skin. The Serum? its a cocktail formula (Epidermal Growth Factor). EGF is derived from the progenitor cells of the human fibroblast cells – which helps to generate collagen and elastin, to tighten and firm the skin. This process allows the active ingredients to be transported deep in the skin by creating temporary micro- channel.
So, just to be clear, celebrities like Sandra Bullock are rubbing liquified cloned baby foreskins on their face in the name of looking younger.
Yep, seems TOTALLY normal.
