Can you put a price on youthful beauty? Endless companies have tried to answer that elusive question for decades, even centuries, that's for sure. Even back as far as Cleopatra, people were searching for products that could not only enhance natural beauty, but completely alter it. These days, big promises are made by beauty creams and serums, vowing to keep you looking like you're in your twenties or thirties forever. Studies show, however, that most of these products are complete frauds and the claims that are made by most of them don't even have to do as they say they will, thanks to loose regulations. Basically, that microderm, antioxidant-enriched luminous exfoliate rejuvenating lotion is just regular, old lotion with a longer name.

So, if creams can't keep you looking young forever, then what will? Many would argue that the standards of unrealistic beauty have become so extreme in recent decades, there's virtually nothing that some people wouldn't do. And although cosmetic surgery has become much more culturally acceptable, even the act of slicing into our own faces or enduring injections just to turn the hands back a few years, seems downright barbaric when you really think about it. But cosmetic surgery procedures have become just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to things people are willing to do to buy their very own fountain of youth. From peeling off layers of their own faces, to using parasites to suck all the “old” out, the beauty industry is nothing if not innovative. Here are 13 of the most bizarre things people intentionally do to themselves in the name of maintaining that youthful glow.

Stem cell research is all the rage in science these days, with claims that it has the ability to reverse the effects of all kinds of healthy and mental problems and ailments. And now aging might just be added to the list of things that it can reverse. Plant stem cells have already helped burn victims in healing their scars by stimulating regeneration. Dior's Capture Wrinkle Cream supposedly contains plant stem cells which can show results on the face of the user in under an hour. A 1.7 ounce jar will set you back $105 and no studies have been done to back up any claims made by the company. Only time will tell in determining whether or not plant stem cells become the new botox.
