During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Sandra Bullock sat down with the host and delivered her top facial regimen for looking great every single day, including while on set. The actress said that she undergoes, “penis facials.”
On Thursday, Sandra, who’s currently promoting Ocean’s 8, said she is “obsessed” with her beauty routine, and went on to try and avoid saying exactly what it was, for fear of embarrassment.
Bullock said her process is one involving “micro-needling,” and the “rupturing” of the collagen which apparently “boosts” it. Your skin looks terrible for a day but ends up looking great.
She doesn’t know what is inserted into the pores and admits the facialist puts “whatever” they want in there.
After a short interrogation period, Bullock went on to say it was a “piece of skin” from a young person from very far away. DeGeneres said, “it’s foreskin from a Korean baby.”
According to Bullock, the process is so good that once Ellen has experienced it herself, she’ll go running to the specialist asking for the “penis.”
And while some might think it’s a joke, it turns out the serum is actually made from the foreskin of a baby. The serum, EGF, is taken from “progenitor cells of the human fibroblast” from the foreskin of a penis.
One can’t help but wonder how hard the Korean beauty industry is laughing at this. Most people think the story is funny, however, some of the criticism on social media was brutal: “that is the most insanely idiotic thing I’ve ever heard in my life, and I’m not dumber for having to listen to it. What are they going to find to rub on their face yet?”
