2012 was nothing if not interesting in the spa and beauty world. This year’s spa synopsis reveals the most bizarre behaviors and beauty trends from the Japanese bagel head to the New Jersey “Tanning Mom’s” sun booth obsession, with new innovations in the cosmetics world attempting to tap into the Fountain of Youth in the eternal quest to defy Mother Nature.
Bizarre Spa and Beauty Trends
2012 saw a bit of the strange and bizarre in the spa and beauty world with trends that may not last well into 2013. Fans of “The Real Housewives of New York” were not surprised that one of their own, Cindy Barshop, began to peddle decorative merkins for the freshly waxed vagina.
A body art trend took off in Japan, bagel heads, that thankfully has not caught on in the United States, but the spa procedure has left many wondering, why?
The NJ “Tanning Mom” made an old leather baseball mitt look good when she was arrested for allegedly taking her daughter into a tanning booth with her. She is credited for shedding some UV light into the tanning obsession, however her five minutes of fame is now over, even after she tried to extend it to ten by posing pale for ‘In Touch” magazine.
Not bizarre enough, then perhaps slapping the wrinkles off of your face, a spa technique born in Asia, another strange beauty trend, that has caught on in California to fight the signs of aging, will cause your lips to curl.
The Fountain of Youth
Behold, the Fountain of Youth lies within you, especially if you have about $3,000 to initially dispose of, then another $1,500 monthly stipend to utilize the fat from your own body to plump up your face. Interesting? Then you will love the “Vampire Facelift” procedure, again using your own DNA to fight Mother Nature against the battle of the aging.
In the eternal quest to look young, 2012 saw bizarre, innovative and expensive spa treatments come to life, however, this Examiner is not sure if the above beauty trends are likely to catch on. But 2013 does indeed hold hope, with facial creams and moisturizers that have been developed and continue to be perfected to fight the signs of aging using more natural and organic ingredients.
If 2012 saw strange and bizarre spa and beauty trends, 2013 will undoubtedly not be any different, but a beauty trend for the New Year that will not change is the fight to stay young, battle the aging process and have glowing, youthful skin.
