    Angelina Jolie’s Skincare Secret Involves Needles!

    Some are inclined to think that Angelina Jolie possesses some kind of superhuman powers because no one manages to look that good with such a non-stop schedule. Most of us normals know that most life issues show up on our faces first, whether we’re tired, eating poorly or just plain stressed. So, how does she get the glow? Turns out Angie is allegedly into a bizarre (what else is new?) treatment called derma rolling that involves taking a roller of teeny needles to your face to make small punctures all over your skin. Not surprisingly, derma roller manufacturer, Environ, claims miracle results. The theory is that puncturing the skin stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that make your skin look smoother and more youthful. It’s also a way to help products to penetrate pores more deeply: “The principle of the Cosmetic Roll-Cit™️ is that the ‘micro-needles’ puncture the horny [huh, huh] layer of the epidermis, which is the main obstruction to penetration of active ingredients,” explains Environ’s website. The LA Times describes it as akin to “aerating your lawn when fertilizing.” Other supposed benefits include improving acne and scarring.

    The bad news: Environ kit starts out at $154, and costs an extra $80 to replace the needled head, which is a bit of a necessity considering it’s tough to sterilize. However, if the device does what it claims, might it be worth pinching pennies for the pain? Not that daredevil Angelina would be concerned with either. [LA Times, Environ.co.za]
