In his ongoing quest to look youthful, Simon Cowell is getting regular sheep placenta facials, it has been revealed.

So convinced is the media mogul by the skin-rejuvenating properties of livestock afterbirth that the 52-year-old TV personality has become a devotee of the 330-pound-treatment, the Mirror reported.

The special facial is carried out at the Beverly Hills Lancer dermatology clinic that is reportedly also frequented by Victoria Beckham.

In the facial, a therapist applies the stem cells from special, New Zealand-reared sheep, which is then spread over Cowell's face.

But before this happens, Cowell's face is given a thorough 30-minute exfoliation and beamed with an LED light to open up his pores.

From here, the stem cells are smeared on in a gel mixed with 24 carat gold flakes.

Finally, a "galvanised metal probe" is prodded over the skin to ensure that the product penetrates deeply.
