The 32-year-old actress, who is dating Brad Pitt, is said to be worried the veins in her arms, hands and forehead have become more visible because of the amount of weight she has lost in recent months.
To combat the problem, Angelina has started having a special £200-a-time beauty treatment which uses a cream made from the eggs of the Baerii sturgeon which is reared on farms in the South of France to produce the culinary delicacy of fish eggs. <b1>
The treatment, which can last up to three hours, involves the actress being wrapped up in tight bandages so her body sweats out toxins before she is slathered in the youth-restoring body cream which claims to fight "slackened skin and loss of firmness".
The high oil and protein content of the sturgeon eggs is believed to be very good for the skin.
As well as the full body treatments, Angelina is also having lengthy facials using caviar-based moisturisers made by cosmetic company La Prairie.
The Beowulf star is not the only celebrity who has discovered the skin benefits of caviar.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Rolling Stones star Sir Mick Jagger, supermodel Kate Moss and fashion designer Stella McCartney are all allegedly fans of caviar-based facial treatments.
Angelina recently revealed her mother's death triggered her dramatic weight loss.
The actress who lost her mother Marcheline Bertrand to ovarian cancer in January said last week: "I've always been lean and this year I lost my mom and I've gone through a lot.
"I have four kids and I finished breastfeeding - it's been hard to get my nutrition back on track."
