When you are a celebrity who spends most of their time either on screen or on the red carpet, you ALWAYS have to look your best. And as a celebrity, you can never keep secrets, especially when it comes to staying young and beautiful! From Angelina Jolie’s caviar skin cream to Gwyneth Paltrow’s snake venom facial, we will find it all out. So sit back and relax as we list down the 7 unusual celebrity beauty secrets you are dying to know.
But wouldn’t dare try or would you?
#1 Lady GAGA’s Face Tape
You are definitely going GAGA once you find out how the Perfect Illusion singer manages to make her face tight and lifted. And no it is NOT Botox.
In an interview, she said that she is an avid fan of facelift tape and uses it to pull the skin around her cheekbones and neck tight in a bid to look younger. Even if she is not even 30 yet, she admitted that she still uses the “sticky stuff” most days to shape her incredibly youthful face. Ouch.
She also mentioned something about her morning ritual: “When I have my wig cap on and I am taping my face, it’s a sort of meditation for me. Every day, it starts the same way like it’s a mantra.”
#2 Angelina Jolie’s Caviar Skin Cream
Angelina Jolie is probably one of the most famous celebrities on the A-List department. So you might be wondering what kind of facial cream she uses to keep her face looking flawless and beautiful.
Oh turns out, she is just using some caviar skin cream from Switzerland, you know, nothing special. (Sarcasm, in case you couldn’t tell)..
If you are a celebrity mom of six, you really have to think of a way to look fabulous at all times, and with Jolie’s case, it is using an ALMOST-A-THOUSAND DOLLAR for a 100ml skin cream that contains the eggs of Baerii sturgeon. Apparently, this product is rich in protein that is said to be good for moisturizing and firming the skin. This process can last up to 3 HOURS.
Does anyone want to try?
#3 Demi Moore’s Leeching Therapy
When the 54-year-old actress went to Austria, she discovered a very unusual kind of therapy – Leeching.
In an interview with David Letterman, Ms. Moore revealed that she is a fan of leeching.
“I was in Austria doing a cleanse and part of the treatment was leech therapy. These aren’t just swamp part leeches though – we are talking about highly trained medical leeches” (Wow, who knew leeches could be trained too?…)
Ashton Kutcher, her husband at the time, said that the actress went to the leech doctor to “detoxify her blood.”
According to ancient Egyptian doctors, leeches are somewhat a “cure-all”. In the modern days, they are used in plastic surgeries to assist the reattachment of severed body parts.
Now this is something you don’t hear every day.
#4 Miranda Kerr’s Eyelash Spoon Curler
As a model, you always have to be ready in case something goes missing on your make-up purse. In this case, it is an alternative for an eyelash curler.
This former Victoria’s Secret model shared her secret on having curled lashes in a flash:
Yes, it is just the spoon that you use for eating. Kerr told Lucky magazine how she quickly manages to curl her lashes with a use of a spoon. She also said that motherhood has forced her to rely on quick fix beauty solutions.
#5 Gabrielle Union’s Ice Cube Regimen
This is probably the cheapest (besides Miranda’s Spoon trick) beauty secret ever. Yep, ever seems such a long time but so is this trick. Definitely an oldie but a goodie.
Gabrielle Union is known for slaying the red carpet at all times. But in an interview, she said that she still suffers from puffy eyes and breakouts. So how come she always looks so fabulous?
Her secret is none other than ice cubes!
Ice cubes can do a lot more than chill your drink, it is actually good for your skin. D-Wade’s wife shared that ice cubes tightens her pores, de-puff her eyes and calms down breakouts resulting to a glowy picture perfect skin.
Now this is something unique and a definite must try!
#6 Gwyneth Paltrow’s Snake Venom Facial
If you are not a fan of snakes, we suggest not reading this one. But we know you’ll still read it anyways. Have you ever heard of a snake venom cream?
Academy award winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow bought a cream from Sonya Dakar Spa in Beverly Hills that contains snake venom. Yikes!
It apparently keeps her skin looking “fresh and youthful”.
A spa insider said: “She bought loads of the Ultra Lux 9 products, including a cream which contains the spit of a snake. It is NOT Botox, just a cream that has some venom in it. We use it as part of the facials here”
Wonder how they get snakes to spit…?
#7 Victoria Beckham’s Bird Poop Facial
Would you ever put “bird poop” on your face? Well, the former Spice Girl sure loves it. Talk about ewww.
Mrs. Beckham gets a “Geisha Facial” or also known as “bird poop facial” at New York’s Shizuka Day Spa. Because of the powdered nightingale droppings used in the treatment, the Geisha Facial costs about $200 an hour session and promises to “soften, brighten and nourish the complexion”. Is that so?
It must really be working since there are reports that Mr. Beckham also gets it.
How sweet, getting their faces covered with bird poop.
