Are you willing to spend $1,000 on a facial or $5,000 on special bath water? What about a million dollars on nail polish? We’ve heard time and again that beauty comes at a price, a costly one at that. But you’ll probably get the shock of your lifetime when you find out how much some of the world’s most expensive beauty treatments actually cost.
The star of the hit reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians has been known for her ridiculously luxurious lifestyle. So it wasn’t such a big surprise when Kim Kardashian had her face injected with her own blood to make it appear more youthful.
At $1,500 per session, vampire facial, also called Dermapen facial, is one of the priciest facial treatments in the world. It is usually complemented with filler to make wrinkles disappear. The blood used is stripped off red blood cells so all that are left are platelets that stimulate growth of collagen.
Evian Water Bath
Why bathe in tap water when you can afford 350 gallons of Evian mineral water? According to proponents of this lavish bathing style, tap water doesn’t have the same therapeutic properties of Evian water. Bathing in this special water is said to stimulate growth of new skin cells and promote skin repair.
But in order to enjoy these perks, you’ll need to shell out $5,000 for the water alone. That’s not all. You’ll also have to spend another $6,000 for a luxury suite at the Hotel Victor in Miami, the only place offering this service at the moment.
20-Hands Duo Massage
With 10 massage therapists kneading your muscles, you can expect a pampering experience like no other. As you can imagine, this is no ordinary massage. For one, it sets you back for $4,000. For that price, you get 20 hands manipulating the stiff and painful muscles of your body.
Massage has been known to have therapeutic effects, relaxing both the mind and body. Because it reduces stress levels, it also has some kind of anti-aging effect, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
HD Diamond and Ruby Facial
Mila Kunis made headlines when she had a diamond and ruby facial for $7,000. This treatment involves crushing these precious gems into fine powder, which will then be rubbed gently on your skin. It also comes with a paraffin silk fiber mask treatment and LED red lighting. The result is a unique kind of glow that no other facial can provide. You’ll literally shine like a diamond!
Ted Gibson Hair Cut
Haircuts usually cost from $20 to $50. But for a Ted Gibson hair cut, you need to spend $1,200! Sounds crazy? Hollywood A-listers like Anne Hathaway and Angelina Jolie do not think so. For this amount, the renowned hairstylist will personally shampoo your hair, cut it and style it. You’ll even get a therapeutic massage and hot towel treatment right after.
White Diamond Manicure
TV personality Kelly Osbourne did not stop at the $250,000 black diamond manicure she had a few years ago. This time, she had a white diamond manicure that costs $1 million. Azature’s white diamond polish has 98 carats of crushed diamonds.
Unless you’re a Hollywood celebrity or a multi-millionaire, you’ll probably want to tone it down a bit when it comes to spending on beauty treatments. It’s no news that there are natural and homemade beauty recipes that won’t even cost you a hundred dollars.
Most of what you’ll need, you can already find in your kitchen or pantry. Take a jar of honey and use it as facial cleanser. Mash some bananas and mix it with brown sugar, and you have instant body scrub. Put some slices of cucumber to reduce eye puffiness. All these are safe, effective and easy on the pockets.
See, there really is no need to spend a lot of money to maintain beautiful youthful glow.
