Today’s wacky – and sometimes humorous – beauty tricks. Some of these are just too weird not to work. As always, use your own discretion and at your own risk. :)

beer

Beer isn’t just for breakfast anymore

Beer can clean up your locks and make them healthy and shiny. I know you’ve heard about it… but have you TRIED it? Before you wash your hair, pour some FLAT beer over it. Let it sit for 10 minutes or so and shampoo/condition as usual. If you have dry hair/scalp (common in the winter when the humidity is low), rinse out the beer and work some olive oil into your hair and scalp, then shampoo thoroughly and condition.

The funniest beauty secret you’ll ever hear… and never tell.

semen

WHY are you spending $100 or more on high-end eye cream and acne medications when semen works just as well?

That’s right. Semen.

semen for wrinkles

According to NYmag.com:

Spermine, a powerful anti-oxidant originally discovered in, yes, human sperm, is said to diminish wrinkles and smooth the skin. The substance is now being synthesized in laboratories and sold by a Norwegian company called (seriously) Bioforskning. Spermine facials (really) cost $250 at Townhouse Spa, where the substance is penetrated with ultrasound and infrared light (a more basic treatment can be found for $125 at the nearby Graceful Services).

According to online lore, Cleopatra used semen to combat aging. At first blush, after one gets over the “Ewwww!” factor, it might actually make sense...

Can you really whiten your teeth with a banana peel?

teeth whitening with banana peel

This is a home remedy beauty tip that’s been around for ages. You’re supposed to rub the inside of the banana peel on your teeth for about two minutes. Adding a little salt/water paste to the mix is supposed to help.

But does it really work?

According to our research, it might.
So what is it in banana peels that’s supposed to whiten your teeth?

Probably silica. Silica works as a polishing agent on the dentine surface of your teeth. A bonus? It’s used for the treatment of dentine hypersensitivity.

Some people swear by using a banana peel to whiten their teeth. Have you ever tried it? If so, what were your results? (Did it look anything like our hopeful before and after image above?)
