Regardless whether you're male or female, healthy skin is something we all strive for. There are hundreds of different skin treatments and face masks out there: yogurt masks, lemon juice rinses, mud masks ... the list goes on. However, 28-year-old Tracy Kiss from Wendover, UK, has probably got the strangest suggestion of them all: sperm. That's right, this single mother and beauty blogger treats her skin with human sperm every day.
The thought alone makes some people cringe, but Tracy swears by her unconventional skincare method. She claims that sperm is the only thing that's really tackled her chronic skin issues. She's struggled with the skin condition rosacea her entire life. Rosacea causes acne-esque inflammation of the skin, particularly on the face.
Instead of turning to antibiotics, a common treatment for serious cases of rosacea, Tracy wanted to experiment with something a bit more natural. She came across someone's suggestion for semen in her research and decided to give it a go. Her skin improved almost immediately.
Tracy quickly started to notice her complexion changing; her skin looked smoother and more even and her inflamed sores softened into tender, healthy-looking skin. Overcome with the positive results, she was determined to keep up the regime. Since her initial trial, Tracy has applied sperm to her face every single day.
Every morning Tracy spreads fresh semen on her face and lets it sit for 20 minutes before rinsing it off.
She recognizes it's a bit strange, but she can't deny the positive results she's experienced. She always uses "fresh" sperm that she sources from a (healthy) friend and she insists that she doesn't take part in the collection process. She said her skincare routine will likely become a bit simpler once she's found a steady boyfriend.
There is nothing that speaks against the external use of semen from a biological or chemical standpoint. In addition to lipids, proteins, and enzymes, sperm also contains citric acid, lactic acid, urea, zinc, magnesium, and calcium, most of which are ingredients that can be found in many skincare products.
Tracy doesn't mind that some people are grossed out by her organic skincare treatment. She's completely convinced that it works for her and proudly shares photos of her soft, rosy cheeks online.

Do you think this technique will catch on? It's already quite common to use urea in skincare products, so maybe the cosmetic industry will get wind of Tracy's new method ... who knows?! [H/T:Hefty.co]
