Move over placenta loaf. Bye bye placenta pill. The new way to remain ultra close with the sac your baby lived off is by smearing it on your face!
Well, sort of.
The placenta facials that are catching on are made up mostly of regular old face creams. There’s just one added ingredient: somebody else’s afterbirth.
We’ve got a lot of mega fans around here on the healing powers of the placenta – they came out in droves to support the consumption of post-natal pill made up of placenta pureed and served in capsule form.
But this isn’t your own placenta going on your face. It’s someone else’s. Or how about this side of the coin: would you want to send your placenta off to a factory to be made into a facial cream for other people’s day at the spa?
For the latter, I can’t say that it would bother me entirely. It’s outlasted its usefulness for me, so have at ladies and gents.
