Craziest celebrity beauty treatments

Looking good for the camera is one of the primary concerns for many famous people. That’s why it’s no surprise that they are willing to try almost anything in an effort to stay young and gorgeous. Check out some of the weirdest celebrity beauty treatments.

Demi Moore







Leeches have been used as a treatment to treat all kinds of conditions since ancient Egyptian times. These days it’s used as anti-age therapy and Demi Moore swears by it.  The leeches supposedly detoxify your blood and improve circulation, resulting in a youthful appearance. In a 2008 Letterman appearance, the actress admitted to indulging in a leech therapy detox. “It detoxifies your blood,” she explained. “And they have a little enzyme that when they’re biting down on you, gets released into your blood and generally you bleed for quite a bit. And your health is optimized. It detoxified the blood and I’m feeling detoxified right now.”

Oprah Winfrey







Oprah drew criticism for using SkinMedica’s cream, TNS Essential Serum – which she says is her “magic fountain of youth”. The pricey cream created by a Southern California company, contains human baby foreskins – an ingredient they claim make it “an unparalleled anti-aging cream”. The combination of high-tech ingredients helps “improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and the overall tone and texture of skin”.  The company reportedly grows the cells it needs from a single foreskin sample, after denying using harvested components.

Eva Longoria







The actress has admitted to using a placenta cream called “Placental” to get glowing, wrinkle-free skin. Placenta is full of iron-rich blood cells, vitamins, minerals, fats, and antibodies. Longoria, as well as some other famous ladies, applies this placenta cream, derived from real human organs, onto their faces to improve their skin and get an overall youthful look. The extravagant cream that reportedly sells for over $100 may sound like a fountain of youth, but there is actually very little evidence proving that product does what it claims.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth is a fan of Sonya Dakar’s Snake Venom Cream and the luxurious snake venom facial, which claims to have a ‘botox-effect’ by ‘softening the signs of aging on the skin’. The cream contains Syn-ake, a compound created to mimic a protein found in the venom of the temple viper snake with its strong muscle relaxing effect works like a neuromuscular block, giving the skin a ‘relaxed state’. Paltrow also undergoes a treatment called cupping – an ancient Asian practice supposed to stimulate circulation.

Victoria Beckham







Victoria Beckham has shared her skin secret: Bird Poo Facials. The facial includes collecting nightingale excrement from the Japanese Island of Kyushu. The New York facialist, Shizuka Berstein, who is behind this bizarre treatment, explains that the “nightingale poo acts as exfoliate that brings out the dirt and dust that builds up in the skin and leaves the customer feeling refreshed”. Beckham supposedly gets this facial twice a month.

Kim Kardashian







Kim will do pretty much anything for attention and for the sake of looking good. This includes having the so-called “blood facial”.
On an episode of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kim is seen having “skin-rejuvenating treatment”- which involves using one’s own blood. According to Dr. Lam, this ridiculous and painful treatment involves the patient’s own platelet rich plasma to be “applied to the skin, proceeded by a laser treatment and followed by a micro-needling process in which the skin is perforated.”

    Eurgh, some of these sound horrid! You’ve got to admit that people like Victoria Beckham tend to look good, though. Whether that’s due to these treatments or her army of make up artists etc is open for debate, though…
