What is the craziest beauty treatment you have ever tried?
I have wrapped myself in plastic wrap, put tea bags under my eyes, put mayonnaise on my hair and many, many more experiments with high hopes of fantastic results! My results were mixed but I keep on trying.
I read an article called, The 11 Weirdest Celebrity Beauty Secrets, from Women’s Health which proves that we are all trying crazy home remedies to hang onto our beauty.
As the title reveals, there are 11 weird secrets, but there is an “expert” that weighs in to let readers know if there is any benefit so you too can bring the crazy into your life!
Celebrity Beauty Do’s
Miranda Kerr uses lip balm as a highlighter around her eyes. So, while you are applying your chapstick to your dry lips, just go ahead and put some in the corners of your eyes! At the very least, your eyes won’t get chapped.
Catherine Zeta-Jones uses beer on her hair. Apparently, this gets rid of any build up. You can use after you shampoo and any beer will do. So remember to save a cold one the next time you have a BBQ. (Do NOT tell the beer lover in your home of your intentions. They will no doubt think of this as alcohol abuse!)
Denise Roberts uses avocado to deep condition her hair. But really, weren’t avocados created for guacamole? Seems like a waste of a great dip.
Lady Gaga uses tape to remove eye makeup. This would be in the “don’t” section for most of us. It is only in the Do section for those of you wearing glitter. So in an effort to be inclusive to all our readers, we pass on this message: To those of you wearing glitter on your eyes, please learn from Gaga and use tape to remove.
Lisa Rinna uses cinnamon oil to plump up her lips. The expert says use with caution but seriously! Does anyone believe that this is why her lips are bursting with plumpness???
Miranda Kerr (again) uses a spoon as an eyelash curler. After you read the expert’s opinion on exactly how to do this (hot water and a blow dryer), I just want to say – GET AN EYELASH CURLER!
Celebrity Beauty Don’ts (According to the Beauty Experts)
Snookie uses kitty litter to exfoliate. Kitty litter? The real story is how did she even think of this???
Jennifer Love Hewitt uses toothpaste on zits. I did actually hear about this in high school so she must have gotten this tip from her mom or someone who went through the puberty years in the seventies/eighties – which was a desperate and crazy time!
Sienna Miller uses ketchup on her hair to fix color mistakes. If you happen to experience a hair color mistake, get yourself back to the salon. They can fix all kinds of flubs AND you won’t be craving french fries!
Teri Hatcher puts red wine in her bath to soften her skin. The expert says don’t do it because it would take a few bottles and could irritate cuts. I guess if you are willing to buy disposable red wine in a box and are free from cuts on your skin, go for it! (For the record, that is a joke, I am not condoning this. Any use of wine other than its intended use is furiously frowned upon and the real travesty here!!!)
January Jones took supplements made from her own placenta to recover from her pregnancy. All I have to say is Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!
What Have We Learned?
So, what have we, non-celebrities, learned? I don’t know about you, but I learned that we are all the same when it comes to trying new things and doing whatever we can, regardless of how crazy it sounds, to stay beautiful.
