(Newser) – As it turns out, the fountain of youth is flowing with all sorts of strange ingredients, and Forbes reveals the best of a bunch that could keep you looking young and radiant:

  • Caviar isn’t just for your palate: La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Crystalline Concentre uses the fish extract to make the skin more elastic and keep it wrinkle-free.

  • The stem cells of a rare Swiss apple found in M Cream Ultimate Lift slow down the aging process.
  • All that glitters might not be gold, but your skin will gain flexibility from Carita’s Perfect Gold Serum.
  • If Botox isn’t your thing, synthetic snake venom in UltraLuxe-9 Age Control Complex could be just the thing to get smooth skin.
