Enquirer: Demi Moore treats her skin with Peruvian goat blood at $100k a ml

On the Late Show a few years ago, Demi Moore told a story about how she’d seen a practitioner in Austria who put leeches on her as some sort of alleged detox treatment. This is based on old-school medicine as leeches have an anticoagulant in their blood and can help aid circulation. Of course they were applied indiscriminately for all sorts of ailments and could do more harm than good. We’ve also heard stories that Demi spends up to $700 a visit for her dog to get acupuncture, so this has the potential to be true. According to the National Enquirer, Demi spends a ton of money on blood from a special mountain goat in Peru which is supposed to eliminate wrinkles and keep you young-looking.

“Demi was told by a doctor during her recent Peruvian trip that there was a rare mountai goat whose blood was a 100 percent guarantee for eliminating wrinkles and keeping one’s body 30 years younger looking,” a good pal revealed to All the Buzz [National Enquirer].

The miracle blood costs $100,000 per milliliter, and “Demi has ponied up for five vials!” the friend admitted

“She already immersed herself in one and told friends she feels completely different, like she has a new lease on life! She’s saying that it is better than surgery and plans to visit the Peruvian mountains twice a year to stock up!”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, November 14, 2016]

The “doctor” who sold her this is probably amazed she fell for it. The Enquirer has these numbers wrong, right? Because you should be able to get an entire heard of goats for much less than $100,000. You could keep your own mountain goat, or hire a Peruvian sherpa to domesticate one and bleed it a little once a week, for just a couple of thousand dollars a year. There’s no way the blood from a mountain goat is worth $100k a ml, there are 5ml in a freaking teaspoon. Someone at The Enquirer is not good at math. Or Demi isn’t.

I tried to google to see if this was a thing, and I found only weird treatments for sports injuries involving injected goat blood (don’t do this!), unproven and potentially dangerous treatments for MS with goats blood, and goat blood given as an enema to treat thalassemia patients. None of these treatments are at all proven but I guess if you’re putting it on your face it’s not as bad. This reminds me of that “vampire facial” thing which was popular a few years back, but that used the person’s own blood injected back into their face with some kind of chemical. This story needs more details about how this mountain goat blood is applied exactly. Is it injected, applied or injested? (It sounds like it’s just topically applied, which would be useless, not that it would do anything either way.) Is it really hard to catch these goats and are they free range? I have so many questions about this.

    Why is she dressed as Heidi, is it an homage to the goats?

  2. Chantelup says:

    Think the Enquirer writer wrote this after a bad Halloween hallucination and hangover.
    Demi’s crazy, though, so they printed it anyway thinking, wth, people will believe it!

  3. ctgirl says:

    There’s a sucker born every minute.

  4. Alix says:

    Umm, if she’s really doing this, the condition of her skin doesn’t nearly make up for her hair and the monstrosity she’s wearing in those top pix.

  5. LiterallyaShambles says:

    Or Demi Moore treats her skin with Botox, fillers and chemical peels but wants to call it something else.

    • detritus says:

      it’s like Kendall – egg whites, honey and an excellent dermatologist and laser therapy.
      Yes. All of those have the same and equal effect….

  6. jerkface says:

    You trying to tell me she’s a CHUPACABRA?

  7. Beckysuz says:

    Is looking permanently startled a new thing for Demi? What did she do to her eyes?

  8. Grant says:

    I mean, she has nice skin but she better get a steady job stat if she wants to keep the blood flowing.

  9. Mp says:

    So thats why she was in Peru like 2 weeks ago! Lolz

  10. paolanqar says:

    That sounds like a whole lot of goat crap

  11. minx says:

    She’s a sad person.

  12. QQ says:

    she looks like a nutcracker with whatever those injectables are doing to her face

  13. Tara says:

    Crazy. Eyes. If this is true, I hate her and want to see a mud wrestle face off with her and Gwyneth… where goop wins.

  14. Lalu says:

    I just realized why Demi doesn’t look like most of the women that have had so much work done. Her lips. She didn’t blow her lips up.
    She gets good work done.

  15. Lolo86lf says:

    Poor Demi. I do believe she would try goat’s blood on her face to look younger. Getting dumped by Ashton really did a number on her mental health. Poor thing. I am not making fun of her!

  16. Chetta B. says:

    She has the pallor of a smoker. Does she smoke?

  17. Dr. Funkenstein says:

    Looks like she should demand a refund.

  18. aenflex says:

    All that effort and her hands look like Granny’s. Too bad.
    I think she would look better had she just aged naturally and relished in the beauty of her younger years by watching Ghost a few times a month.

  19. Lolo says:

    Vampire facial is actually a pretty good thing and it’s not “an alternative medicine”. it’s scientifically proven to improve skin’s condition. And it really helps if you have hair loss and alopecia

  20. Sara says:

    When she got her horse teeth it complete ly changed her looks.
