A celebrity facialist says that putting a sperm mask on your face is key to a super glowy, youthful complexion.
Beautician to the stars Chelsee Lewis - whose clients include Stella McCartney, Suki Waterhouse and Gwyneth Paltrow - says semen is one of the best ways to boost oxygen and improve skin circulation for a radiant glow.
It's unclear whether Stella, Suki and Gwyneth have opted for these treatments, but Chelsee told Mail Online: "It's one of the best ways to boost oxygen and improve circulation to the skin, which will give you an immediate glow.
"Sexual intercourse helps the stress hormone but also helps to balance the hormones and improve collagen production. But you can go one step further with a sperm mask. Yes, you heard right!"
Chelsee, who is based in Mayfair, London, and has over 22 years of experience in the beauty industry, says semen contains anti-oxidants which can help reduce wrinkles and keep your skin clear from spots.
She explained: "Using your partner's sperm as a mask is full of a compound called spermine, which is an antioxidant which can help reduce wrinkles, smooth the skin, prevent acne or spots and give you overall healthy-looking skin."
Reports on the effectiveness of using sperm skincare are conflicting, as it seems like beauticians can't agree on whether spermine has any effect on your skin at all.
The celebrity beautician shared lots of other tips and tricks to get the best skin of your life, including splashing your face with ice cold water between 15 and 20 times before applying your make-up.
"It will leave your skin feeling tighter and brighter, and your makeup will sit beautifully," Chelsee added.
She also recommends ultrasound as a way to fight the signs of ageing. "It's growing increasingly popular for tightening and for anti-ageing and is one of the latest pieces of technology on the market right now," Chelsee said.
"HIFU face is a non-surgical facelift treatment using high-intensity focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose or sagging skin on the neck and face without any downtime."
According to the beauty expert, the technology works by stimulating the deep supporting layers of the skin, without causing damage to the surface.
In turn, this stimulates the growth of new collagen, "resulting in a lifted, firmer and more toned appearance of the skin".
We think we'll pass on the sperm mask though, thanks.
