Bizarre Beauty Trends: Snake Venom

It seems like youth seekers are willing to travel further and further in search of that infamous fountain these days.   Want proof? One of the more popular beauty trends for 2012 involves snake venom. While the one coming straight from the snake is poisonous, this compound is not but it is identical. The venom works by paralyzing certain areas of your face reducing fine lines and wrinkles over time. Believe it or not, those willing to slither on over and give it a shot have plenty of options including products from the celebrity favorite line, Rodial.
