Why not treat yourself to the same skincare routine as the Duchess of Sussex?


Tracy Kiss is a beauty blogger who suffers from a skin condition. Unlike other people who live with rosacea, she has a very unusual method of treating her skin whenever it flares up.

She gives herself semen facials. 

Tracey has shared her interesting technique on her YouTube channel where she posted a tutorial that explains her out of the ordinary technique.

She first describes her condition, which causes her face to look and feel warm and sensitive.

She then explains the process of the semen facial. 

She gets her semen from a male friend who deposits the goodies into a Chinese takeout sauce tub and delivers it to her door. So you know, nothing out of the ordinary there.

Apparently, what he eats and drinks has a big effect on the consistency, texture, and (most importantly) the amount she receives. In order to ensure he’s deposits are up to standard, Tracey monitors his diet to make sure he doesn't drink or smoke or take drugs beforehand.

Well, alright then. 

Tracey does point out that she is in no way involved in the actual “harvesting” process. Which we aren’t sure how we feel about, but we do think ‘harvesting’ is a very intriguing verb to use in this context.

The reasoning behind the semen treatment is described as follows:

"I think a lot of people are concerned with the thought of putting semen on their face, but actually it's a very natural and healthy thing to do. I know exactly what goes into this. I know there are no added chemicals, no harshness.” 

A former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief, Helen Gurley Brown, also recommended spreading semen on the face because it's "probably full of protein as sperm can eventually become babies." 

Tracey adds: "Semen builds babies, they come out very soft and have beautiful skin, and it leaves my skin nice and soft."​

Dermatologist Doris Day, MD, told Cosmopolitan that while there are some benefits to the unorthodox method. She notes it is “designed to support the essence of life.”

However, she herself would not be fully convinced. She is also wary of STIs.
