Just when you thought youâ€™d heard it all, thereâ€™s a new beauty trend on the up and up: butt facials.
â€œI got this idea last May, when I had a client come in expressing concern about some acne on her butt,â€ says Molly Lamb, owner of Skin by Molly in Brooklyn, N.Y. â€œI just put the treatment up on my spa menu, and I was deluged.â€
The 30-minute Shiny Hiney facial, which costs USD85 or RM 303, includes a wash with a purifying cleanse, followed by a toner that contains salicylic acid; next comes a manual exfoliation, a steam and a purifying clay mask. (For an extra $20, you can add a mild glycolic peel to further do away with dead skin cells and penetrate deep into those clogged pores.)
But if you donâ€™t have a spa thatâ€™s offering a butt facial near you, donâ€™t despair: You can perform your own bum beauty treatment at home by using a salicylic acid body wash followed by a tea tree oil scrub and a clay mask.
â€œAnything that you would use on your face or back is perfectly safe to put on your behind,â€ Lamb says.MYNEWSHUB
