As I reported the other day in â€œBye Bye Botoxâ€ aging celebrities are being forced to look beyond the perma freeze in order to get cast for a role. Now it seems stars are definitely going â€œBeyond Botoxâ€ for their anti-aging solutions. In fact 34 year-old Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow undergoes a beauty regimen that includes a cream:made from snake venom. It seems the actress was recently spotted at the Sonya Dakkar Spa in Beverly Hills and according to Page Six of the NY Post â€œPaltrow, a frequent customer, walked out with a line of Ultra Lux 9 products - including a cream that contains the spit of a snake. "It's not Botox," said one insider. "Just a cream that has the venom in it . . . [the cream] is part of the facials."
But Paltrow isn't the first celeb to experiment with interesting age defying techniques; 62 year-old Debbie Harry recently told Female First, â€œshe has been injecting herself with sheep embryos since she was 35. The Blondie singer said: "I thought, 'Wow, this is so logical - you have fresh cells'. I was the youngest person that had ever done itâ€
