Snake serum and bee venom may have been 2011's revolutionary beauty products but this year it's all about 'Dragon's Blood.'
Dubbed the ‘Liquid Facelift‘ Dragon’s Blood works by adding essential volume to hollow skin. It promises to plump, sculpt and lift the complexion but it effectively protects against ageing, forming a skin-like film around the face for a dramatically more youthful complexion - without the needles.The gel, which reduces skin sagging while boosts elasticity, is actually made from the red sap of the sangre de drago tree.
And Lady Gaga has allegedly been using the cream to prepare for the Golden Globes.
The controversial singer is the latest fan of the beauty product which carries the unusual name. Before now the only way to counteract sagging skin was to inject fillers into the cheek to restore the original plumpness of the face.
This extreme procedure leads to the common problem known as 'pillow face', where the cheeks look 'inflated' and this can have the adverse effect of closing the eye, making them appear smaller. With Dragon's Blood serum, women including celebrities, are able to regain the youthful fullness in their face.
