Beauty blogger Tracy Kiss' number one 'secret' to glowing skin is probably something you won't be likely to try anytime soon. 

According to AsianTown, the 28-year-old from Wendover, Bucks, has unveiled her beauty secret -- semen facials every day.

Yes, you read that right.

The single mother-of-two posted a video to her YouTube page, describing it as a cooling, natural skin treatment to soothe sensitive skin.

A male friend delivers his semen to her in plastic containers, which she then rubs into her skin and leaves to sink in for up to 20 minutes.

She says this extreme approach has cured her of h er skin condition rosacea.

She said: 'I think people are concerned with the thought of putting semen on their face but actually it's a very natural and healthy thing to do.'

The single mother suffers from the skin condition rosacea, which causes redness and flushing, and says her daily facial has done wonders for improving her complexion.

'I know there are no added chemicals. It's as natural and active and live as you could possibly get,' she explained.

After describing her skin condition to viewers, she held up a small pot containing the sperm donated by her friend.

She stressed that she's 'not involved' in the donation, and that it's a result of something her friend would be doing on a daily basis anyway. 

She reminds viewers who are in relationships that they can call on their partners for help.

Tracy then dips her fingers into the pot and wipes the substance onto her cheeks.

She describes the sensation it gives as 'cooling and soothing' and likens it to eating minty chewing gum.  

'I would put it in comparison to when you have chewing gum in your mouth and you breathe in, it's a cold, cooling, refreshing feeling,' she said. 'It just sucks into the skin. It's absolutely beautiful.'

Tracy explains that she doesn't mind the smell, and says that if the donor eats a healthy, balanced diet the sperm will have a fresher odour.

But she advises anyone who wants to try it to burn some incense or keep a diffuser nearby if they are squeamish.

Tracy leaves the substance on her face for between five and 20 minutes before wiping it off and washing her face with warm water.  

'It feels so glossy to wipe it off. It feels like having a kind of oil on the face,' she explained. 'It just glides beautifully.

'The condition of the skin feels so much better already.' 

She said the idea came about during a conversation about natural remedies with her beauty therapist. 

'The topic of semen facials came up,' she said. 'And I began researching the use of semen as a facial ingredient.

'I found that many experts had confirmed its benefits. 

'Semen builds babies, they come out very soft and have beautiful skin, and it leaves my skin nice and soft so I'm very happy to use this as a facial.'

As crazy as this seems, it is said that semen contains proteolytic enzymes, which are designed to dissolve proteins.

When applied to the skin on a regular basis, these enzymes may help to break down dead layers and leave the skin feeling smoother. 

It also contains zinc, magnesium, calcium, potassium and fructose, which could nourish the skin, although they are only present in very small amounts.
