Kate Beckinsale joins the 'penis facial' brigade and draws flak from fans for the 'perverse and sick' skin treatment
The star put up a post on Instagram showing her fresh, glowing skin owing to the 'penis facial'. She later took it down after a barrage of negative comments
Hollywood celebrities go out of their way to maintain a youthful glow on their skin. Actress Kate Beckinsale has found a unique new facial that is supposedly one of the best anti-aging treatments in the market. Kate took to Instagram to share with her fans that she had recently tried the 'penis facial', a specialized anti-aging treatment developed by aesthetician Georgia Louise.
ET Canada reports that the Instagram post, which has since been taken down, is a selfie with a focus on the actresses' glowing skin. The caption read, "After a long flight I do like to lie down and be covered in a mask of liquified cloned foreskins – frankly who doesn’t? Thank you @georgialouisek for an amazing facial. I especially liked you reassuring me it would be 'light on penis' as it was my first time x."

This skin treatment called Epidermal Growth Factor or the Hollywood EGF is remarkably popular among Hollywood actresses. The $650 EFG facial treatment "involved a peel and micro-needling, followed by a proprietary penis-infused serum." The serum is apparently derived from the foreskins of Korean babies. The process is supposed to generate elasticin and collagen to make your face newborn fresh. At the moment the treatment is only available in the US.
Once Beckinsale posted about her facial, Louise also posted on her own Instagram account about the star's treatment which is when fans reacted strongly against the facial.
"Kate is, has always been, and probably always will be gorgeous," one commenter wrote. "However, the thought of kissing anyone's face that has the foreskins of babies rubbed all over it is unpalatable." Another one wrote, "How vain do you have to be to do this kind of s**t?"
A third person commented saying, "I’m wondering how they are getting these babies foreskin and if the parents are just saying hey, We don’t want our son's skin. You can have it! That’s perverse and sick."
Other A-Listers like Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett seem to swear by this bizarre skin treatment. Both the stars even discussed how they tried out the facial together in New York. On an appearance on 'The Ellen Show', Bullock revealed that the 'penis facial' is her secret to looking young. She joked and said, "I think when you see how good it is to your face you to will run to your local facialist, and say 'give me the penis!'" To this, Ellen replied with, "I’m never going to say that!" reports News.com.au.
