Caviar - We've all heard of exquisite fish eggs called caviar that supposedly taste like heaven. But did you know that they're also used in skincare products? They can help improve your skin's texture by reducing wrinkles, making your skin more elastic and also regenerating your skin. You can either apply caviar to your skin directly or you could opt for skincare products that contain it as an ingredient.
Bird poop - Before you go all eww what are they talking about, hear us out. Bird poop contains urea and this ingredient is used in face wash and moisturisers. It contains properties that can help your skin retain its moisture and it can also help add shine to dull skin.
