7 Surprising Celebrity Self-Care Routines
We know, we know: You’ve tried every self-care tip in the book. But if Victoria Beckham can defy the laws of aging, so can the rest of us. And she just might have a secret you haven’t seen yet. From lip-collagen masks to 24-karat facials, check out these seven surprising celebrity self-care routines.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Lady-Parts Steam Clean
Paltrow is firm believer in feminine hygiene care, and the Mugwort V-Steam, which uses mugwort (a medicinal herb) to cleanse and balance your downstairs, is her go-to. “You sit on what is essentially a mini-throne, and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al.,” Paltrow writes. We’ll spare you our carpet jokes.
Shailene Woodley’s Clay Lunch
You read that right: Woodley occasionally consumes a teaspoon of clay to rid her body of toxins. “I've discovered that clay is great for you because your body doesn’t absorb it, and it apparently provides a negative charge, so it bonds to negative isotopes,” she says. Can you put Cholula on that?
Victoria Beckham’s Foil Mask
It doesn’t get more Posh Spice than this. In 2016, Beckham shared her secret beauty weapon on Instagram: Reynolds Wrap foil-backed sheet masks. The metallic layer creates an environmental barrier to help lock in moisture and smooth fine lines. Selfie game changer.
Emma Stone’s Red Carpet Lips
Prior to the 2017 Golden Globes, Stone’s lips received the full red-carpet treatment. In an Instagram posted by her makeup artist, Rachel Goodwin, the La La Land actress flaunted a KNC Beauty pout cover, which has an ultra-hydrating blend of nutrients that plumps and smoothes your lips. Painless, injection-less but very slippery.
Bar Refaeli’s 24-Karat Gold Facial
To maintain her picture-perfect complexion, Refaeli treats herself to liquid-gold facials. The oozing treatment is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-acne and anti-aging benefits, but it comes with a hefty price tag (shocker!) of $1,660. Well, there goes this month’s rent…
Kaley Cuoco’s Cupping Obsession
If you follow Cuoco on Instagram, then you know she’s an avid cupper. The Chinese treatment involves placing small glass cups on the skin, creating a vacuum and then pulling them away from the body. The process is designed to increase blood circulation, release muscle tension and hurt so good.
Jenna Dewan Tatum’s Sinus Acupuncture
When Tatum gets the sniffles, she turns to needles...and a lot of them. The World of Dance star frequently visits her acupuncturist, Jeannie Kang, and shares the good, the bad and the painful details on Snapchat. The treatment consists of several tiny little pricks on the face to increase energy, boost the immune system and relieve sinus pressure. Hellraiser or hot tea? Your choice.
