TIL that for the past year and a half, I've been putting synthetic snake venom on my face several times a week.
Skin care products — literal snake oil.
"Syn-ake is a patented anti-aging ingredient developed by the Swedish company, Pentapharm Ltd, designed to mimic the action of snake venom. It is designed to work on relaxing the muscles in the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines."
@erinbee not only snake venom but sounds like it's the unholy snakes who devour human sacrifices in an ancient underground shrine in some Conan comics
@solar It's a muscle relaxant, presumably so you can't scrunch your face hard enough to keep deepening the same wrinkles.
@Mayana It sounds ridiculous, but it does what it promises to do (reduce under eye puffiness, fine lines, and dark circles).
