They say that beauty is pain, but with these strange beauty products, beauty is peculiar.
In the never-ending quest for perfectly smooth, hydrated, and glowing skin, beauty junkies have stumbled across some seriously weird beauty products - take, for instance, the silk cocoon “fingerballs” that are about to take the place of your old washcloth or the anti-aging device that looks more like a modern art sculpture. But, as with everything, beauty is in the eye of the beholder with these strange beauty gadgets. They might not look cute in your bathroom cabinet, but damn, do they get the job done.
Get ready to add some odd beauty regimens to your daily routine. These are the weirdest beauty products that actually work!
These 100% silk "cocoons" won't look as simple and chic on your bathroom sink as a stack of cotton pads, but they will keep your skin cleaner and softer. Just slip a cocoon onto your fingertip, and use it to massage in your favorite cleanser, exfoliator, or makeup remover. The silk is much more gentle on your skin than a cotton pad or wash cloth, and it actually has moisturizing properties itself.
Medieval torture device? Only a little bit. Derma Rollers (or MicroNeedles) are a strange new beauty phenomenon that utilize thin needles to help serums absorb more effectively into the skin, leaving your face brighter, clearer, and younger-looking.
After applying your nightly serum, lightly roll the micro-needles over your face in a specific rolling pattern, covering your cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose (keep this away from your eyes!). Your serum will soak in like never before, and while your face may look a little red immediately after, you'll wake up with a glow you didn't know was possible.
Magnetic masks may not be the most glamorous-looking face masks (in other words, you won't want to post a #SelfCareSunday selfie wearing one of these), but you should definitely have one in your beauty repertoire. A magnetic mask - made with Dead Sea mud infused with iron particles - is wet at first, but after you smooth the formula onto your skin, it dries right up.
To remove the mask, wave the magnetic wand over your face to pick up all the iron particles (along with any dirt or impurities that were sitting on the surface). This creates a micro-current in the skin which restores function to aging cells and helps the skin repair itself, leading to super-clean, younger-looking skin.
Not all beauty products are meant to be applied to your face. Take Beauty Dust, for example; it's an adaptogenic blend of herbs and pearls from the company Moon Juice that you can mix into your morning tea or coffee to boost your beauty from the inside out! The mixture of pearl, goji, rehmannia, and schisandra berry works to boost collagen production and keep your skin, hair, and nails strong and healthy.
It's a must-have (just store it in your pantry instead of your vanity).
