Would you cover your face in bee venom? Caviar? Urine? Some will go to the extreme in the quest for radiant skin. Check out some of the weirdest skincare procedures, according to Yahoo.

Raindrop facial

Angelina Jolie spends nearly 30,000 dollars per year on non-invasive laser treatments that give her youthful radiant skin.

“First, we prep skin with microdermabrasion so the laser penetrates better,” Dr. David Colbert told Grazia UK. “Then, we use a laser, which feels like warm raindrops on the skin. After that, we do a lavender acid exfoliation, then apply gentle wave lights.”

Bee venom facial

This facial, loved by Kate Middleton and Lisa Snowden, uses bee venom to fool your skin into thinking it’s been stung, which causes a rush of blood to the surface and stimulates elastin and collagen production.

Bird poo facial

Traditionally used by geishas to brighten and repair their skin, treated nightingale droppings are now a more common modern skin treatment.

Caviar facial

Great for acne-prone and mature skin, this natural non-invasive treatment gently exfoliates, cleanses and boosts collagen production with caviar, massage and marine extracts.

Face slapping

A San Francisco salon recently started offering this pricy procedure, slapping customers in the face to reduce wrinkles and shrink pores.

Gold facial

Starting at over 125 dollars, this London-based 24-carat gold facial uses a skin radiance gel with real gold particles to offer customers a glittering complexion.

Kitty litter facial

A skincare blogger recently made headlines when she suggested mixing cat litter with water to create a deep cleansing clay mask.

Facial acupuncture

Millie Mackintosh and Kim Kardashian both promote facial acupuncture, designed to improve blood flow and reduce stress to minimize wrinkles and fine lines.

Snail facial

This facial involves allowing snails, farmed and fed a diet of organic fruits and vegetables, to crawl across the face for a healthy radiant glow.

Urine facial

This facial stems from the theory that urine is similar to amniotic fluid found around babies in the womb. Since babies’ skin is soft, the theory suggests that the sterile substance can soften adult skin.

Vampire facial

Kim Kardashian, Anna Friel and Angelina Jolie have all used this treatment, which involves taking your own blood, separating out the platelets and injecting them into the face with tiny needles. The procedure is designed to reduce eye bags and boost collagen, but has been known to cause black eyes.

Want a more common skincare treatment that’s tried and true? Microdermabrasion is a great non-surgical way to rejuvenate skin. The treatment uses exfoliation to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells.
