Celebrities go through extreme cosmetic and skincare procedures to acquire and retain their beauty. Sometimes, these extremes include blood, poo, penises, sweat and a lot more weird than you may ever imagine.
So without further ado, let’s see what these beautiful stars go through to take care of their pretty faces.
1 Victoria Beckham and her Bird Poo Facials
Now this one sounds really bizarre. Victoria Beckham is an international celebrity and a global style icon. What is her secret beauty hack for spotless skin? Specialized facials with Nightingale excrement at its core. The poo is then dried under UV lights and applied on the face. It is said to have amazing beauty properties like clearing acne and rejuvenating skin.
So, would you apply special bird poo on yourself to achieve glowing skin?
2 Cate Blanchett’s Penis Facial
Stem cells harvested from Korean newborn baby boys' foreskins are used to create special facials that are all the rage in the Hollywood. Cate Blanchett is a regular customer of these facials and swears by the effectiveness of the procedure.
3 Selena Gomez’s Sweat Bed
Sweat beds are a real thing. These special lodges use infrared energy to increase body's core temperature and make you sweat for a whole 45 minutes. During this experience, your skin reportedly rids itself of all dirt, dust and toxins. You emerge with a softer, healthier skin. It also reportedly makes you slim and keeps the body firm.
4 Sandra Bullock's Hemorrhoid Cream Eye Treatment
Sandra Bullock reportedly applies haemorrhoid cream under her eyes to reduce their swelling or puffiness!
5 Jennifer Lopez's Placenta Facials
Jennifer Lopez can not age as long as she has access to her special placenta collagen masks. And considering she's an international success and a global phenomenon with loads of cash to spare, expensive placenta collagen treatments will keep giving her age-defying skin and rejuvenation.
6 Gwenyth Paltrow’s Vagina Steaming
The Hollywood A-lister is often in news due to, what many think, her bizzare and odd beauty and health recommendations. One of the processes that she regularly indulges in a steam bath for your vagina. You basically sit on a chair while a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus.
The star recommends it highly. So, you up for it?
7 Kim Kardashian's Vampire Facials
The beauty mogul is no stranger to controversy. So it wasn't a big deal when she documented herself getting 'vampire facials' during one of the episodes of KUWTK.
This beauty treatment involves taking blood from the patient and then injecting the platelets under the surface of the skin to achieve 'a healthy glow, improve skin texture and get rid of fine lines and wrinkles'.
8 Katie Holmes's Snail Slime Skin Care
Snail slime is reported to be a great source of a special fluid that fights wrinkles, acne and scars. In this strange beauty procedure that Katie Holmes favors, live snails are stimulated to produce that liquid which is then used as a moisturizer for the whole body, leaving it shinier, smoother and younger.
9 Jennifer Anniston's Cupping
This one sounds less shocking and more painful. Cupping is an ancient Chinese practice where suction cups are used and placed on the back to help detox the system. It also supposedly stimulates circulation and is known for curing different body aches. And those unsightly spots and circles that arise due to painful suction? Those are temporary and go away easily.
Another Hollywood celebrity who's into cupping? Gwenyth Paltrow and Justin Bieber among others.
10 Lauren Conrad's Oil Mouthwash
The star is a practitioner of a procedure called 'oil pulling'. The supporters of this procedure consider swishing a spoonful of coconut oil around in their mouths for 20 minutes an integral part of their oral care routine.
The Hollywood start believes that this process has not only gotten rid of all her oral hygiene issues but has also given her better skin around the mouth, chin and jawline. She agrees that the sensation of oil in her mouth for 20 minutes was odd at first (we bet!), she has now gotten used to it and in fact, looks forward to it every morning.
11 Eva Longoria’s Placenta Cream
Eva Longoria uses EMK’s placental-based cream that reportedly restores the skin's texture, keeps it baby-soft and even toned.
12 Demi Moore's Leech Therapy
This one is quite well known around the circles. To keep herself healthy and her body removed from all toxins, Demi Moore regularly opts for leech therapy'. This procedure uses medical leeches that suck on your blood and reportedly remove all toxins from it, leaving your body cleansed and healthy.
13 Kate Hudson's Ice Water Dunk
This one is not odd or bizarre, tbh, but it does make it to our list because of the sheer coldness of it. Kate Hudson, the forever young beauty, routinely submerges her face in ice cold water to get rid of any swelling or puffiness on the face and to improve circulation.
14 Bar Refaeli's 24-Carat Gold Facial
The supermodel once got a liquid gold facial. Molten gold was poured all over her face and it looked like a golden mask. But she swears by its effects which reportedly include acne clearing, even skin tone, improved pigmentation and eradication of bacteria.
15 Catherine Zeta-Jones Uses Fruits as Her Toothpaste
Well, she may be onto something. Catherine Zeta-Jones reportedly uses fresh fruits like strawberries and pineapples to brush her teeth. Both fruits are great sources of Vitamin C and can be great in combating different oral issues like plaque and bad breath etc.
So, not considering that removing strawberry seeds from out between the teeth can be a real struggle, would you try it?
16 Snooki's Kitty Litter Facial
If you ever wondered what is the secret of Snooki's beautiful skin, well, wonder no more. She uses regular kitty litter as a special ingredient for her facials to get rid of dead skin and to keep it healthy, glowing and even-toned.
She doesn't use any special kitties for that either, no. Just her regular kitties would do, thank you very much.
