Celebrities Simon Cowell, Donatella Versace and Victoria Beckham all are reported to have tried a new treatment to help maintain a youthful glow — the sheep placenta facial. Dermatologist Dr. Annie Chiu explains how the unusual special ingredient helps the skin. “It’s chock-full of nutrients from the placenta, things like growth factors, nutrients, amino acids,” she says. Dr. Chiu combines the sheep placenta treatment with a light chemical peel so the skin is more receptive to nourishment. The special formulation mixes the sheep placenta extract with 24-karat gold flakes, to give clients a golden glow.
