Women, and men for that matter, do some crazy things for beauty. We’ve compiled a list of the three most bizarre salon treatments that may have you running in the opposite direction and glad you only pay $50 for your facial cream.

2. Snake Venom Cream

Just when you think they couldn’t come up with anything more strange to stop the signs of aging, they found snake venom and incorporated it into lotion to paralyze the skin without killing you.
