We ladies are steady obsessing about having flawless, glowing, never ageing skin. And that’s not a bad thing. I mean, look at Genevieve Nnaji and Toke Makinwa!
This need to stay forever young, with skin like a baby’s butt makes celebrities and models to be the first ones to try out new skin care products. They do need to always look great for the camera though, right?
Only recently 22 year old Hailey Baldwin revealed that the secret to her beautiful skin is a face moisturizer made from her blood! Obviously that’s new but surprisingly we wanna know about it (that’s an understatement we are screaming inside!)!
“When I explain this to people, they think I sound insane. I use a range of products by Barbara Sturm. She took blood from my arm and put it into a machine that spins it and separates the plasma from your blood before putting it into a lotion for your skin”
The entire idea is both gross and intriguing so we dug around a little to try to understand the science behind this whole blood moisturizer thingy.
Dr. Barbara Sturm who is the brain behind the vampire facial that Kim Kardashian made popular, has spent over a decade creating a scientific line of Molecular Cosmetics. These use our bodies own proteins to keep the skin looking fresh and healthy. Her products are clean and non-toxic, believing that synthetic chemicals can create inflammation and work against skin health.
Dr. Sturm explained that your white blood cells can be stimulated to produce two healing properties: a protein called Interleukin 1-antagonist, which reduces inflammation and TGF-beta, which is responsible for strengthening the skin tissue and stimulating collagen growth to reduce wrinkles.
Since your blood produces these healing proteins when there is a wound on the skin, Dr. Sturm created a syringe to draw her patients’ blood with. The upper chamber of the syringe contains irregularly shaped glass beads that mimic the surface of the skin when there is a wound (essentially tricking your blood into producing that Interleukin-1 antagonist and TGF-beta mentioned above). The blood that contains the healing proteins is what Dr. Sturm mixes into her cream, creating a totally unique product that is bio-compatible with your skin.
But of course, this “blood magic” skin care product won’t come at an affordable price. According to Well + Good, the Blood Moisturizer costs around $1,400 per jar. Apparently, smearing blood across the face is not for everyone.
What do you think about the blood moisturizer? If you had the chance, would you try it?
See how you can moisturize the right way and still have beautiful skin without using your blood in this post.
