Harry Styles of One Direction allegedly gets sheep placenta facials to keep up that youthful, radiant boy bander complexion. Harry Styles is a stylish guy in his own Mick Jagger kind of way. The 21-year-old One Direction superstar is definitely not dying of old age, so why does he pay $600.00 for a sheep placenta facial? Because Harry wants to “maintain his youthful good looks” for as long as humanly possible. Highlander decapitated people and Meryl Streep lost her legs in Death Becomes Her, so Harry, I’m sorry to inform you, but immortality comes at a price. Ask John Travolta. He had to sell his soul to L. Ron Hubbard for a nip, a tuck and a blue-eyed-horror-mask.
This rather unorthodox skin treatment is all the rage amongst Hollywood’s rich and famous. Simon Cowell, Donatella Versace (how is she still alive?), and Victoria Beckham (of course), have all tried the crimson facial labyrinth. According to dermatologist Dr Annie Chiu, “It’s chock-full of nutrients from the placenta, things like growth factors, nutrients, amino acids.” Dr Chiu “combines the sheep placenta treatment with a light chemical peel so the skin is more receptive to nourishment.”
As if smearing a sheep’s reproductive organs on one’s face wasn’t enough, the placenta is also imbued with 24 karat gold. There might also be some Gary Busey thrown in there for good measure, but we wouldn’t know because we would never smear our faces with bloody (no pun intended) birth-blood!
Directioners shouldn’t gag and vomit in the bushes just yet, because it turns out that Handsome Harry never had a drop of placenta on his awkwardly smooth face. The singer denied the allegations on ‘On Air With Ryan Seacrest’. “Yes, I wash my face, but I don’t use any part of sheep, I don’t think. I don’t know what you’re talking about,” said the pop star. The bizarre interview – Ryan Seacrest has a way of making people feel uncomfortable – led to less important questions, such as the future of One Direction, Harry’s role in the band, personal success, etc.
I always knew Simon Cowell was a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
