There's no denying that we are all envious of celebrities with their fame and fortunes. As if it weren't enough, they have also seemed to have unlocked the fountain of youth because none of them look their age. While reaching star status isn't in the cards for most of us, we may finally be able to get their flawless complections, but it won't be pretty. From lathering themselves in olive oil to letting bees sting them to look younger, these are the most bizarre celebrity beauty secrets you might want to try once. You would be surprised how far they will go to stay youthful.
1. Gwyneth Paltrow Has Bees Sting Her Face To Stay Young
Gwyneth Paltrow is known for being into all kinds of weird beauty products and regimens. Her lifestyle brand, Goop, is filled with articles about the most bizarre treatments, and something that caught our eyes was her use of bees to keep her skin looking young.
Paltrow does a treatment called apitherapy, where bees sting her to get rid of inflammation and scarring. She said it's pretty painful, but people have been performing it for thousands of years, and it is apparently an incredible treatment.
2. Demi Moore Uses Leeches To Detoxify Her Blood
Demi Moore might be 58-years-old, but she doesn't look a day over 40. Therefore, we have to try whatever she has been doing because it is clearly working. One thing she revealed about her beauty regimen was a cleanse she did in Austria.
While in Austria, she tried leech therapy because it detoxifies your blood, and they have an enzyme when they bite you to make you bleed more. It seems like an extreme way to cleanse yourself, but leeches have been used in medicine for many centuries.
3. Kim Kardashian Takes Some Tips From Vampires
Kim Kardashian is no stranger to unusual beauty treatments, and she has made some of them quite popular on social media. Her famous vampire facial went viral after she posted a selfie on Instagram. However, she says she would never do it again.
The vampire facial has plenty of rejuvenating skin benefits that helps your skin's cell turnover. The only reason she said she wouldn't do it again was that she had just found out she was pregnant, so she couldn't use the numbing cream, which made for an uncomfortable experience.
4. Sienna Miller Used This Condiment To Fix Her Hair Color
Sienna Miller has gone through many hair colors in her career, from pink while trying to dye it red, and green when trying to dye it brown. She had trouble getting her hair color back to normal, so she decided to dig through her fridge to see what would fix her problem.
The only thing that worked for her was ketchup. For about a year and a half, Miller put ketchup on her hair and sat under heat until the color went back to normal. She thought it was funny that it wasn't even a childhood mistake and happened when she was already in the public eye.
5. Shailene Woodley Doesn't Use Toothpaste
While we would never think to try this trick because our dentist would be upset, Shailene Woodly doesn't brush her teeth with toothpaste anymore. She said one of her friends made clay toothpaste that you swallow, and she wanted to try it.
Woodley discovered that clay is good because your body doesn't absorb it. Also, it has a negative charge, so it bonds to negative isotopes. It can help clean heavy metals out of your body and detoxify you from the inside out.
6. Snooki Swears By Kitty Litter To Exfoliate
Have you ever wondered how to master the Jersey Shore look at home? In an interview, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi revealed how she keeps her skin smooth and prepped for a spray tan. It might seem strange, but she uses clean cat litter.
Snooki said she doesn't like to spend a lot of money on her beauty treatments, so she searched the internet and found that cat litter was an alternative. When asked how she felt rubbing a pet product on her face, she said it worked, and she hadn't broken out.
7. Teri Hatcher Bathes In Red Wine For Supple Skin
If you thought a wine bath consisted of relaxing in a tub while drinking a glass of wine, you would be wrong. Some celebs, like Teri Hatcher, take baths of red wine in the hope of absorbing the wine's polyphenols, which are effective antioxidants.
The wine bath is supposed to firm your skin and improve elasticity. We don't know about you, but that seems like a huge waste of wine, and who has that much wine in their home to fill a bathtub. It must be why it is a celebrity secret.
8. Jessica Simpson Uses Fish To Get Rid Of The Dead Skin On Her Feet
Jessica Simpson is known for experimenting with her beauty routine, and she isn't shy about showing it to the world. She even hosted a docu-series called The Price of Beauty. One of the strangest things she posted was a fish pedicure she raved about.
Simpson said you soak your feet in tanks of Garra Rufa fish, and they eat the dead skin. It sounds gross, but she swears by it. We think we will stick to our regular pedicures and foot file for now.
9. Victoria Beckham Keeps Her Skin Clear With A Geisha Facial
Asian skincare is known for being way ahead of its time. As far as Victoria Beckham is concerned, she would rather be ahead of a trend than behind it. That's why she decided to try out a Geisha facial, consisting of putting bird poop on your face.
Anything with the word poop seems disgusting, and we would be too grossed out to give it a try. The facial is basically dehydrated bird poop that is supposed to make you glow from within, and it's clearly working for her.
10. Jennifer Lopez Puts Human Placenta On Her Face
Just when we thought we had found the most bizarre facial treatment, Jennifer Lopez decided to make things grosser. J.Lo doesn't look her age, and it might be because of her human placenta facials. The mask encourages collagen production to make the skin look younger.
Basically, it helps her look ageless even though she is in her 50s. We're not sure how it feels to have this mask on, but it is doing the trick for her, so maybe we should be more open-minded to these bizarre treatments.
11. Hailey Baldwin Has Blood Infused Moisturizers
When it comes to looking perfect, Hailey Baldwin is known for turning heads. It might boil down to the fact that she uses a $1,400 face cream infused with her own blood. Baldwin said she is crazy about skincare and moisturizer is her holy grail.
Baldwin uses Sturm's MC1 Blood Moisturizer, which only costs more than a month of rent. You have to go to the doctor, let them take your blood, and they add the plasma to the cream. We are sure you could find something that works well for a fraction of the price.
12. Emma Stone Keeps Her Skin Moisturized With This Cooking Staple
Emma Stone is known for her natural good looks and hilarious personality. When she steps onto a red carpet, she knows how to turn heads, and she has a few tricks to keep her skin looking perfect every time she steps out of the house.
Stone says she has a giant bottle of olive oil on her sink that she uses for her face and body. She says she smells like focaccia, but her skin is always as soft as a baby. She also uses grapeseed oil after the shower and throughout the day.
13. Kate Hudson Uses A $300 Moisturizer
Kate Hudson is all about staying young, fit, and glowing. She has shared many of her favorite beauty products and tips in the past, and one of her most beloved products is the La Mer moisturizing cream, which retails for $300.
While most of us could never afford that, she swears by it. One of her other tricks is to dunk her face in a bowl of ice water for a minute because it brings out the color in her cheeks. That's definitely affordable but not very comfortable.
14. Blake Lively Puts Food In Her Hair To Keep It Shiny And Strong
Blake Lively is one half of Hollywood's hottest couple, and since she stepped into the spotlight in the early 2000s, we have wanted to know all her beauty secrets. Lively has the most gorgeous hair, and we always wondered how she kept it so healthy, and she finally shared her secret.
Lively shared that her mom taught her to put oil or mayonnaise on the ends of her hair before she showered so the shampoo couldn't strip the ends of her hair and dry it out. This is probably how she has such long hair without it looking dead and lifeless.
15. Margot Robbie Uses Nipple Cream On Her Lips
When asked about three products she always has in her makeup bag, Margot Robbie said she carries face wipes, a facial mask, and her favorite lip balm, which isn't actually lip balm. She always carries Bepanthen, a nipple cream for breastfeeding moms, or diaper rash cream for babies.
Robbie believes that normal chapsticks have additives that actually dry your lips out, so you have to keep buying them. But Bepanthen is just for dry skin, and she says it works better than anything she has ever tried.
16. Cameron Diaz Used A Drugstore Product To Cure Her Acne
While stars have access to the best beauty treatments available, some of them still struggle with breakouts. For a while, Cameron Diaz had uncontrollable acne on her cheeks and chin, but she found something that helped clear up her entire face.
You might be surprised to find out that Diaz's secret is Neosporin and Visine eye drops. The products take away redness and swelling, and it helps them heal faster. Her skin cleared up beautifully, and she is now glowing from the inside out.
17. Suki Waterhouse Uses Coca-Cola To Keep Her Hair Shiny And Fresh
Suki Waterhouse is one of the most gorgeous models we have ever seen. Even when she isn't wearing a stitch of makeup, she still looks absolutely flawless. One thing that sets her apart is her gleaming hair, and she has a trick to keep it looking fabulous.
Suki's trick is to rinse her hair with Coca-Cola because it gives her hair a tousled look. We have never thought about putting soft drinks in our hair before, but maybe there is a first time for everything.
18. Selma Hayek Puts Guacamole In Her Hair
If there is one thing Selma Hayek is known for, it's her stunning hair. She always looks perfectly put together because he hair is so nice. In an interview, she shared her secret, and you just have to open your fridge to recreate her magic hair mask.
Hayek said you take avocados and mayo and put them in your hair to moisturize it. She also uses egg yolk and lemon to bring out the shine as well. It seems like she is trying to make guacamole on her head, but the stuff clearly works.
19. Cindy Crawford Sprays Milk On Her Face As A Moisturizer
If there is one person to trust for beauty routines, it is Cindy Crawford. That woman is truly ageless, and we wish we could have her genetics. Since we can't steel her DNA, following her beauty routine is the closest we will probably get, and it's worth trying to look like her.
One of her staple products is a mixture of milk and water that she sprays on her face a few times a day to keep her skin moisturized. She says it has a refreshing result, and if that keeps her looking young, we are going to give it a try.
20. Miranda Kerr Uses A Kitchen Utensil To Curl Her Lashes
While most of us have been using a standard eyelash curler to curl our lashes, Miranda Kerr has been in her kitchen using something you can find in every house. Instead of a regular tool, Miranda Kerr said she uses a spoon to curl her lashes, and it seems bizarre.
It must be better because eyelash curlers have a tendency to rip out your lashes, and a spoon can't do that. However, we wonder if it does the same job and really curls your lashes. Based on her looks, we would say it does wonders, but she is naturally gorgeous.
21. Lauren Conrad Puts Potatoes On Her Eyes To De-Puff Them
Lauren Conrad might be known for her iconic winged liner, but she also has some pretty unique beauty secrets that keep her eyes looking young to compliment the eyeliner. To reduce puffiness, she grabs a few potatoes from the fridge and soaks a few slices in water.
After soaking them, she puts them on her eyes for 15 minutes. Conrad says it always works like a charm, and clearly, she doesn't have puffy eyes. If only mastering her winged liner was as easy as depuffing ours under eyes.
22. Catherine Zeta-Jones Doesn't Drink Beer, But Puts It In Her Hair
When asked what the secret was to preserve her youthful appearance, Catherine Zeta-Jones said the answer is in her garden and makeup bag. To keep her skin wrinkle-free, she exfoliates with salt and honey. She also cleanses her teeth with an apple or strawberries after a meal.
The most interesting part of her beauty routine was that she washes her hair with beer. While we would rather not have our heads smell like a frat party, she says the beer and honey mixture conditions her hair and leaves it shiny and healthy.
23. Sandra Bullock Uses Butt Cream Under Her Eyes
It might be an age-old beauty secret, but it is always funny to hear about people putting hemorrhoid cream on their eyes. Sandra Bullock swears by Preparation H because it keeps the fine lines away and reduces puffiness within a few mins.
While there isn't any proven science behind the cream helping to reduce wrinkles, many people still use it in their beauty routines. It has been shown to effectively promote wound and burn healing, which could be another use for this cream.
24. Zoe Saldana Keeps Her Locks Shiny With Mayonaise
We don't know what it is with celebrities putting condiments in their hair, but if they are doing it, we should probably try too. Zoe Saldana has gorgeous hair, and she revealed that she keeps it healthy and moisturized by putting mayonnaise in it once a year.
In an interview, she said, "Once a year, my family will get together and put mayonnaise in our hair for old times' sake. We'll do it on my niece, and we'll always try to get our partners to do it, but they refuse." We are just picturing everyone with their hair covered in mayo.
25. Nicole Kidman Keeps Her Hair Bright With This Alcohol Rinse
When we hear juice cleanse, we usually think of celebrities promoting unhealthy crash diets that involve only drinking juice for a few days. However, Nicole Kidman's juice cleanse is not what you would think because she isn't drinking the juice.
Kidman usually goes between red and blonde hair, and to keep it looking healthy and vibrant, she rinses with two things. For red hair, she uses cranberry juice, and for her blonde hair, she rinses with champagne.
26. Scarlett Johansson Uses Vinegar To Keep Her Skin Blemish Free
When Scarlet Johansson isn't working or walking a red carpet, she is reading about skincare. For a while, she struggled with breakouts, and it was uncomfortable. She started researching natural skincare and found one product that really helped with acne.
Johansson said apple cider vinegar is excellent if you have problematic skin because it naturally eliminates all the spots. It might be a little smelly, but it is worth the effects. She keeps things natural because the harsh chemicals don't go well with multiple makeup applications.
27. Gigi Hadid Has A Special Scrub To Keep Her Lips Moisturized
Gigi Hadid is one of the most in-demand models in the industry right now, and she always looks perfect with or without makeup. The new mom has slowly started to get back to work, so she has to keep her face glowing and ready for makeup.
To keep her lips soft and moisturized, Hadid uses a clean mascara tester wand to apply sugar scrub to her mouth. She says it is a great way to exfoliate her mouth in a gentle yet effective way. It seems like a reasonable thing to add to our routine.
28. Freida Pinto Keeps Her Eyelids Glossy With Vaseline
Best known for her role in Slumdog Millionaire, Freida Pinto is a stunning actress. Her makeup is always on point, and she looks flawless even when she is barefaced. One of her favorite trends is a dewy eyelid, which she achieves with a simple product.
Pinto gets her eyelids to stay dewy by using vaseline because it gives her an angelic look. She always has a very natural glow, and now we know how to recreate her flawless looks perfectly.
29. Madonna's Bruises Are For Her Beauty Routine
After Madonna posted about her hip surgery, fans wondered what the circular bruises were on her legs. The bruises are from cupping, the ancient Chinese treatment that uses suction to stimulate blood flow and encourage healing.
It is said to help people find Zen, and although we have never tried it, stars like Victoria Beckham and Michael Phelps swear by this. There are far crazier things that we could be doing besides this, so it might be one to try out.
30. Halle Berry Uses Coffee All Over Her Body
Although Halle Berry is 54-years-old, she looks much younger than her actual age. To keep her skin looking like she is still in her 30s, Berry has a few important tips. She loves any kind of face mask, especially the light therapy ones, because they show great results.
Berry also keeps her skin tights and smooth by exfoliating with coffee grounds. It is supposed to combat the appearance of cellulite, even though that is very normal for women because of the shape of the fat cells in our bodies.
31. Mariah Carey Keeps Her Lips Plump With Peppermint
While we know Mariah Carey has had surgery in the past to stay young; she does one natural thing to enhance her looks. As far as we know, Carey has naturally full lips, but to make them look a little fuller, she adds some peppermint oil to her lip gloss.
Peppermint oil is known to improve circulation and soothe dry skin. Even using it on your lips alone will give you the same plumped and tingling look that you desire. If it works for the diva herself, we should give it a try too.
32. Beyonce Uses A Glue Stick Instead Of Eyebrow Gel
When we hear about anything Beyonce does beauty-wise, we always want to give it a try. While some of her tips in the past have been questionable (the master cleanse), she does always look perfect, so she must be doing something right.
Beyonce's longtime makeup artist, Sir John, revealed that he uses Elmer's glue sticks to keep Beyonce's eyebrows in place. It is not toxic, so it is safe for the face, it won't clog pores, and it washes off easily. It's something drag queens also use to block out their eyebrows.
33. Jessica Chastain Uses This Trick To Keep Her Smile Perfect
While this is not a weird product or beauty hack, it might help improve your smile. Jessica Chastain always looks perfect on the red carpet, and she credits that to something another actress told her.
The trick to the perfect smile is to stick your tongue behind your teeth to keep you from over-smiling. If you smile without doing it, Chastain said you show too much gum, which is the best actor trick she has ever learned.
34. Chloe Grace Moretz Uses Oil To Wash Her Face
Growing up, Chloe Grace Moretz says she dealt with a lot of cystic acne, which not only hurt her confidence, but it was also painful. She tried to change her diet and then went on Acutane to fix it; however, she still does one important thing to keep her skin clear.
Moretz says she washes her face with olive oil and claims her skin is clearer because of it. While most of us try to avoid excess oil and use oil-free products, she decided to go in the polar opposite direction, and it's clearly working for her.
35. Julianne Hough Uses This Spice To Brush Her Teeth
There are hundreds of products that claim to whiten your teeth between whitening strips, laser procedures, toothpaste, and mouthwash. However, according to Julianna Hough, the solution to whiter teeth is most likely in your kitchen.
The dancer said in an interview that she uses turmeric to brush her teeth because it works as a whitening treatment. You would think the orange-yellow spice would stain your teeth, but it has the opposite effect.
36. Lady Gaga Gives Herself A Facelift Everyday
Lady Gaga has never been one to tone down her makeup because she takes inspiration from drag artists and others with exaggerated styles. In an interview, Gaga said she wakes up every day and decided what kind of person she wants to look like.
When she is wearing a wig, she puts her hair in a wig cap and uses tape to give herself a new eye shape or a mini facelift. She also pulls back her neck and decides how dramatic she wants her face to look for the day.
37. Laverne Cox Uses Baby Shampoo As Face Wash
It might seem bizarre with all the face wash options on the market today, but Laverne Cox prefers something different. She uses Jergen's baby shampoo because she said, "If it's gentle enough for babies, it should be good enough for my skin."
After cleansing with the baby shampoo, Cox uses a wipe and moisturizer. Her skin looks clear and healthy all the time, so maybe it's time for us to start using baby shampoo again. She says it is important to have clean skin to apply foundation perfectly.
38. Chrissy Teigen Keeps Her Eye Cream In The Freezer
Chrissy Teigan is not one to shy away from posting a bare-faced selfie. She is the queen of giving helpful beauty hacks and tricks that will make you glow even when you aren't wearing a layer of highlighter. The actress also keeps her products in specific places.
Teigan keeps her eye cream in the freezer because having it nice and chilled makes a big difference. It wakes you up and depuffs your under eyes. It's also great when she has to be on set early because the cold makes her look more awake.
39. Olivia Munn Uses Japanese Potatoes To Stay Young
If you have spent years searching for the ultimate anti-aging secret in your bathroom counter, you might want to turn your search to the kitchen. While there are dozens of creams and serums, Olivia Munn said the secret to her ageless looks is something she eats.
Munn relies on hyaluronic acid-rich Japanese sweet potatoes to keep her looking young and wrinkle-free. However, due to her love for them, they became so popular she couldn't find them at any store because they were sold out.
