The concept of the plasma able to work against wrinkles and signs of aging but currently there are no sufficient evidence that this procedure works.
3. Urine Facial
Since we come to the idea of applying our bodily fluids to the face reduces wrinkles, why not use our own pee or urine to act as toner for your face since urine contains 95% water and 5% urea. Dermatologists says that urea has natural and gentle exfoliators that scapes acne and dead skin cells.
4. Snail Facial

Japan and Korea, two of the most beauty-consious countries finally caught on the snail beauty technology and came bottling snail filtrate for an instant beauty business.
Snails have built-in skin care consisting of hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein, proteoglycans and antimicrobial properties naturally protecting snail's skin from sun's damage such as UV rays and dryness.
5. Bird Poop Facial
Geishas are the ones with flawless skin as their job requires for it and their facial cream was made with nightingale poop.

6. Bee Venom Facial
Kate Middleton’s beauty secret is none other than bee venom. Users of these so-called venom suddenly became princess wannabees trying hard to imitate the duches's fresh and radiant look.
Bee venom treatment claims to rejuvenate the skin, reduce scars, heal acne and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. No harm done to the bees thanks to a metal plate which was placed inside the hive. The metal plate secretes a small electrical charge enough to threaten the bee which releases the venom which is like natural botox for beauty enthusiasts.
