It can also be an effective natural anti-aging agent if it is rubbed on the face every day. Today, some women massage urine on different parts of their body to keep it smooth and silky. They also apply urine on their scalp to help condition their hair and maintain its glow.

2)  Snake Massage
Snake massage is famous in Israel. Israelites benefit from snake massage by taking a non-poisonous snake for their back. It is believed that the snake’s twisting and shivering helps relax muscles and support blood circulation. It also gives them a deep-tissue massage. There are two types of snakes used for massaging –the small and large snake. Small snakes are used for delicate massage while the bigger ones are for deep tissue therapy. This might be scary and creepy but it was proven that it’s safe and effective. For those who are afraid of snakes, they let them touch or hold the snake first before using it for massage.

3)  Chinese Fire Treatment
Aside from acupuncture, fire treatment is also a well-known medical procedure in China. The process starts by placing a wet towel on the client’s face or body, sprinkling some alcohol and then lighting the towel up. Chinese people believe that fire treatment cures swelling, aches and different illnesses. After the treatment, oil is usually applied on the part of the body where the fire was lit up. Individuals who have an empty stomach are not advised to have the fire treatment. The clients are also given warm water to drink while having the procedure. Also, the client must not take a bath until 12 hours have passed after having the treatment.

4)  Fish Pedicure
Garra rufa fish, also known as doctor fish is used to bite off the dead skin from a person’s feet.

Aside from removing the dead skin, the doctor fish also eliminates calluses from the bottom of the feet. Major foot problems like corns and heel fissures can be removed by fish pedicure. Aside from keeping the feet soft and clean, some believe that the fish can enliven acupuncture points on the feet. As a result, a person’s nervous system will be regulated. The procedure can also release fatigue and relax the body. It takes 150 or more fish to clear away the dead skin from one customer.

6)  Toothpaste for Pimples
Experts say that toothpaste is like an astringent. People who want a quick pimple treatment place a small amount of toothpaste directly on the pimple and leave it overnight. The affected area will then be less inflamed and less noticeable. However, toothpaste can also dry the skin when it is used for spot treatment.

Tip: If you are using toothpaste for spot treatment, avoid applying moisturizers after washing it off because it will irritate the skin. Also, make sure you apply just a small amount of toothpaste on your pimple.

The mixture feels cool on the face making it good for relaxing. Opposite from what everyone expects, the mixture does not smell fishy at all. In fact, some caviar facials do not have a strong scent, just a mild soapy smell.

9)  Leech Therapy
The use of leeches for beauty treatment started in China. Horrible as it may seem, but these leeches are used to get rid of acne. Freshwater leeches are used for this treatment. At first, the person will feel an icy feeling as the leeches are placed on the skin. It will then feel as if the leeches are poking the skin like tiny needles. It is believed that leeches help in stimulating blood flow. The leeches will be removed from the face after two hours, when they are already bloated with blood. Therapists would advise the client not to scratch the face because it increases the likilhood of bacteria entering through the skin.

After the therapy, the same leeches can be used for a lifting mask. This time, the blood of the client, which the leeches have sucked during the therapy, together with leech substance will be applied all over the face. Nowadays, there are cosmetics that contain leech extracts. However, some believe that the extract would be more beneficial when directly applied on the skin. Leech is rich with lipids, which is known to lift the face and reduce pimples. After the mask is washed off, its effects can already be seen. The face is lifted, the complexion looks younger and visibility of acne is greatly reduced.
