When it comes to beauty treatments, celebrities have tried it all. Here’s a look at some of the most surprising celebrity beauty treatments. But please, don’t try this at home!
5 Most Surprising Celebrity Beauty Treatments
#1 Bee Stings
Directly quoted in a New York Times story in April 2016, Gwyneth Paltrow said: “I’ve been stung by bees. It’s a thousands of year old treatment called apitherapy.” Also, “But man’s it’s painful.” Uh yes, we can see how that could “sting” a little. Well now! We checked with skin care researchers and they were very clear that there is no evidence that bee stings improve skin or overall health in any way. So we’ll just stick to moisturizers, thanks.
Blake Lively told Byrdie that she adds some mayonnaise to her hair to avoid dry hair after shampooing. Sounds…tasty?
Back in 2008, Demi Moore told talk show host David Letterman that she went to Austria to use leech therapy to “detoxify” her blood. “These aren’t just swamp leeches though – we are talking about highly trained medical leeches.” Oh well, now that we know they are trained leeches (maybe board-certified?), we feel better. Or not.
#4 Bird Poo
Apparently originating in Japan, nightingale facials made from the birds’ poo is a thing for brightening the complexion. Victoria Beckham uses it. We get it, since nightingales all seem pretty young-looking, right? David Beckham uses it too. Good for them, we suppose.
#5 Their Own Blood
So Kim Kardashian spent $1,500 to have blood drawn from her arm, blended with Restylane or Juvederm and then injected into her face to remove fine lines. It’s called “The Vampire Facelift.” Um, we have no words other than “Yipe!” How about you?
