Jennifer Aniston reveals why she tried a salmon sperm facial

‘First of all, I said, ‘Are you serious? How do you get salmon’s sperm?’ the actress recalls

Jennifer Aniston has revealed why she once tried a facial with salmon sperm in it.

The actress, 54, recalled her experience with the beauty treatment during a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, as she appeared on the cover of the magazine’s fall issue. She noted to the publication that when it comes to looking young, she’s open to trying just about anything at least once in her life.

From there, Aniston confessed that when an aesthetician recommended the salmon sperm facial to her, she opted to give it a go, even though she wasn’t entirely sure what it was.

“First of all, I said, ‘Are you serious? How do you get salmon’s sperm?’” she recalled, regarding her response to the recommendation. However, according to Aniston, after she did the facial, she didn’t necessarily notice a difference in her appearance.

While the Friends star didn’t continue using the salmon sperm – a Korean beauty ingredient that has risen in popularity in the US – studies have found that the treatment can be beneficial for different skin types. According to research published in Pharmaceuticals in 2021, Polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN) – which is extracted from the sperm cells of salmon – has helped improve the healing of wounds on one’s skin, and lessen the inflammation of these wounds.
