DUBIOUS BEAUTY TREND: CRADLE ROBBERS
First came the placenta creams and stem-cell serums. Now youth-seeking British beauties are paying £755 (about $1000) for Vavelta, fibroblast injections made from baby foreskins (collected after circumcision). Since fibroblasts make collagen and elastin, Vavelta patients are hoping it will give them smoother, firmer skin. But do you really want a forehead full of foreskin? Avon Anew Clinical Derma-Full X3 Facial Filling Serum ($54), H2O Plus Sea Results Wrinkle Release Pen ($30), and L'Oréal Advanced Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate ($16.59) contain proven plumping ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides, and retinol.
