Spermine Facial description

Share this

Beg your pardon? An announcement that you’re off to experience a sperm facial might be a real conversation killer at the dinner table, but trust us – this rejuvenating treatment isn’t what it seems. Rather than using real sperm, the facial relies upon the active ingredient spermine – a protein synthesized in laboratories. We’ve got to admit, we’re pretty relieved to hear that...

How does it work?

Although spermine may be most commonly associated with little swimmers, it can in fact be found in our skin cells, too. Thought to be helpful in stabilising the helical structure of DNA, as well as in preserving collagen and strengthening muscle fibres, this interesting ingredient can help to slow the effects of time. We’re not sure you’ll be able to convince your Gran of that, though...

A spermine facial is mostly administered like an ordinary facial – although your therapist may also use infrared light to help the protein penetrate the skin cells. You should be able to see the effects right away – great if you’re looking to freshen up before an event or special occasion. Just make sure you’re careful when explaining your gorgeous new glow...

Is it for me?

If you’re looking to moisturise, strengthen and smooth your skin, a sperm facial could be the answer. This unusual treatment can also reduce the effects of sun damage, and encourage a clear complexion. Like all facials, it’s bound to be a relaxing experience – making it ideal for those times when your circuits are a bit fried.

Good to know

Studies in which spermine was applied to yeast, flies, worms and human cells have all proven its rejuvenating properties.
