Caviar is one of those delicacies that has a reputation for catering only to the upper echelon of society. If you don’t have access to the fishy treat or perhaps can’t stomach it, you can still indulge in caviar via your beauty products.
Why would you want to smear your face with the upscale dish? Well, caviar is actually a great moisturizer due to its omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. It also boasts antioxidant properties that protect skin. And if you’re looking to maintain elasticity, caviar should be your skin care go-to. In fact, spas have long been offering caviar-based treatments to smooth wrinkles, promote collagen production and protect skin from air pollutants.
When it comes to at-home treatments, every beauty lover worth her moisturizer knows about La Prairie’s super luxe caviar line, but you don’t necessarily have to shell out hundreds for the delicacy. Alterna has added caviar to hair care, Korean beauty brands offer up BB creams and masks containing the ingredient and Nails inc. even infused a top coat with caviar extract. Low-cost supermarket chain ALDI also has a coveted Lacura Caviar skin line, but you’ll have to head to the U.K. to get it since it’s only available in stores across the pond. Just be careful to check and make sure the products you pick actually contain caviar or caviar extract since sometimes the term is used to symbolize a supposedly luxury treatment, not the actual fish eggs.
