Default Paltrow Uses Snake Venom?!?

As per TREND HUNTER - #1 in Trends - Fashion Trends, Technology, Style, Design, Pop Culture and Marketing

"As I reported the other day in “Bye Bye Botox” aging celebrities are being forced to look beyond the perma freeze in order to get cast for a role. Now it seems stars are definitely going “Beyond Botox” for their anti-aging solutions. In fact 34 year-old Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow undergoes a beauty regimen that includes a cream…made from snake venom. It seems the actress was recently spotted at the Sonya Dakkar Spa in Beverly Hills and according to Page Six of the NY Post “Paltrow, a frequent customer, walked out with a line of Ultra Lux 9 products - including a cream that contains the spit of a snake. “It’s not Botox,” said one insider. “Just a cream that has the venom in it . . . [the cream] is part of the facials.”
But Paltrow isn’t the first celeb to experiment with interesting age defying techniques; 62 year-old Debbie Harry recently told Female First, “she has been injecting herself with sheep embryos since she was 35. The Blondie singer said: “I thought, ‘Wow, this is so logical - you have fresh cells’. I was the youngest person that had ever done it”".

The snake venom skin care to me sounds like just marketing rather than science They would never be allowed to sell it if there was a high concentration in that bottle.

But sheep embryos? Doesn't she know that sheep stem cells are not the same as human stem cells?

George Hamilton has been getting sheep embryo injections for many years. Gross.

Not only is it gross, but I don't understand how sheep cells could possibly be effective on humans

Somehow it temporarily plumps the tissue.

Well I suppose almost anything they inject will temporarily plump the skin. So I don't know why these celebs are flocking to sheep stem cell injections They must have the wrong impression that some how the stem cells are doing something when they really aren't.
