Celebrity esthetician Sonya Dakar helps her famous clients, like Gwyneth Paltrow, Fergie, and Sofia Vergara, get perfect skin for the red carpet. In this BellaSugarTV segment, Sonya shares some of her tips that include how to reduce puffiness with an acupressure massage, how to make an easy zit-zapping remedy, and our favorite: a DIY exfoliating mask.
Is Gwyneth Paltrow a ssssecret ssssupporter of Slytherin? Page Six reports that she recently made an interesting purchase at the Sonya Dakar clinic: a $185 bottle of Ultraluxe anti-aging lotion. Ultraluxe contains Syn-ake, a synthetic version of the Temple Viper's venom. The actual venom paralyzes people (sounds like fun!), so Syn-ake uses its main peptide to produce a topical Botox-like effect.
Sounds like it would make sense, but there's something about this stuff that creeps me out a little. Maybe it's my crippling fear of snakes, or maybe it's my paradoxical concern for the well-being of the wee Temple Viper. Or perhaps it's just my crippling fear of the $185 price tag. Who knows? Would you try this "snake oil" treatment?
