...But no one's beauty regime is as extreme as Cate Blanchett's, who recently revealed that she and her Ocean's 8 co-star Sandra Bullock are a fan of getting penis facials.
Yep, you read that right.
"[We] saw this facialist in New York, Georgia Louise, and she gives what we call the penis facial," Cate told Vogue Australia.
"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."
Disclaimer: the facial Cate is referring to doesn't ACTUALLY contain sperm, but it is however, derived from cells from the removed foreskin of newborn Korean babies.
To be more specific:
"EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) is derived from the progenitor cells of the human fibroblast taken from Korean newborn baby foreskin - which helps to generate collagen and elastin. FDA approved stem cells and peptides are penetrated deep into the skin using a special electric micro-needling wand. This process allows the active ingredients to be transported deep in the skin by creating temporary micro-channel," according to Georgia Louise's website.
Can't say we'll be forking out $650 for a baby foreskin facial any time soon, but you do you, ladies.
