Jennifer Aniston reveals she tried bizarre fish sperm beauty treatment as she shares secrets to ageless appearance

Many of us will already be well-acquainted with the vampire facial: a controversial blood-based beauty treatment popularised by Kim Kardashian. Then there was the celebrity facialist who claimed human semen was the secret to smooth, clear skin, and urged women to wear their significant other's spunk as a face mask. 

Now, Jennifer Aniston has opened up about the great lengths she has gone to in the past to maintain her famously ageless appearance, revealing in a new interview that she even resorted to salmon sperm. 

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal for a new profile, the 54-year-old divulged she is willing to try anything once when it comes to anti-ageing treatments and techniques, admitting she underwent a salmon sperm facial at the recommendation of an aesthetician.

"First of all, I said, 'Are you serious? How do you get salmon's sperm?'" she told the outlet. 

However, salmon sperm in skincare isn't unheard of, or even particularly unusual. Also known as salmon testicle DNA or professionally as 'salmon pdrn', the ingredient has become a staple of luxury Korean skincare, including the popular Kahi Wrinkle Bounce Multi Balm. Researchers claim the ingredient possesses regenerative, anti-inflammatory properties that can boost collagen production, improve pigmentation, combat inflammation, and increase skin elasticity and cell turnover. 

Despite this, Aniston admitted she didn't notice any significant improvements to her skin following the facial. Instead, she swears by weekly peptide injections to fight the effects of ageing - hailing the treatment as "the future" of anti-ageing procedures. 

The Friends star also shared some insight into how she maintains her famously fit physique, noting she steers clear of "thin fads" and enjoys treating herself on Sundays: to homemade In-N-Out burgers, in particular. She did admit in a Q&A-style video with the publication that her worst habit, however, is "over salting" her food.

Aniston has previously spoken about the healthy habits she incorporates into her lifestyle, which include a clean diet, drinking water, meditation, regular exercise and prioritising sleep. 

During an interview with the Today show earlier this year, she also shared her go-to salad recipe: a base of butter lettuce, topped with mushrooms, sprouts, tomato, avocado, kalamata olives, sliced almonds or sunflower seeds, a poached or boiled egg - and "always" cheese. 

"[I'm] never gonna give up my cheese. I’ll do sliced parmesan, pecorino… feta… or all of them," she said, noting she'll typically stick to oils or vinaigrettes for dressings, but will sometimes have ranch on weekends. 

In regards to her fitness routine, since 2021 Aniston has been a devotee of Pvolve: an exercise programme that pairs functional movement with resistance-based equipment, with workouts ranging from five minutes to over an hour. She now serves as an adviser for the company's online platform.
