Heather’s Bizarre Beauty Tip

Expert Comments On Semen As Skincare
Expert cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Oscar Hevia tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that there is some truth behind this bizarre beauty tip.
“Semen contains proteolytic enzymes, which are designed to break down proteins. In theory, if applied to the skin, these enzymes could help to break down the uneven and thickened dead layer of older, sun-damaged skin. This could make the skin feel smoother.”
Being that this is such an extreme, users must know that their skin won’t look as youthful as Heather’s overnight. This skin-renewal process can take weeks to show promising results.
“However, this might only be achieved with daily application for days or weeks,” said Dr. Hevia. “It would also not be practical as a “mask,” since it is a body fluid and will not remain stable outside the body. It would lose its beneficial effect, if any, very quickly after application.”
