5. Fish Eggs

While fish eggs (or “caviar cream”) have been cosmetically used since the Dynasty era, in modern day, rumor has it that Angelina Jolie used it on her skin while pregnant! As you may have guessed, fish eggs are packed with nutrients, such as vitamins and amino acids that can strengthen the structure of skin, lift and firm, and re-texturize it.


6. Pig Collagen

Pig collagen is usually gel-like and sticky, which makes it good for overnight face masks. Since it delivers high levels of moisture onto the skin, it results in a plumper, more youthful appearance. Pig collagen is also used to increase firmness and elasticity and erase wrinkles.


7. Donkey Milk

Cleopatra is believed to have a stable of donkeys, primarily to produce milk for her to take baths in. It’s no wonder because donkey milk contains lots and lots of Vitamin C, which are essential for exfoliation to achieve that youthful *glow*. Donkey milk can tighten, smoothen, and regenerate the skin, thus preventing wrinkles.


8. Snake Venom

As its defence mechanism, snakes release poisonous venom that freezes or paralyzes its attacker. Snake venom is used in the same way on skin. It inhibits muscle activity, thus minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, but without having to prevent facial movement altogether. This is also why it’s considered a better Botox alternative!
