Celebrities are known for always looking amazing on the red carpet and their primping routines are anything but minimalistic. Some celebrities even have beauty tricks that are completely out of the ordinary. From beer to toothpaste, these secrets will have you rethinking how you get yourself ready each morning.
1. Catherine Zeta-Jones
Catherine Zeta-Jones is known for keeping her hair looking amazing by dousing it in beer. The alcohol removes build up that sits on the surface of the hair. Beer contains proteins and vitamins naturally through the barley and hops which are the primary nutrients for developing healthy hair. It helps produce thicker and fuller hair but doesn’t actually make hair grow any faster. After you shampoo your hair, towel-dry it and then use about a cup or so of beer on your hair and wrap it in plastic wrap and let it sit for 5 minutes and then rinse. Any type of beer will do, so don’t feel the need to splurge on the expensive kind! Grab a cheap can of beer or grab the beer that has been sitting at the back of your fridge for a while – it will work just as well!
Snooki uses kitty litter to exfoliate her skin. It’s not recommended, even though the texture may resemble a mud mask, the particles in the kitty litter are much larger than what you’d find in a regular product formulated for the skin. The particles can produce micro-scratches on the face and body causing inflammation and blotchiness of the skin. A lot of kitty litter also includes silica in the formulation, which is a moisture wicking chemical and will do the exact same thing on the skin leading to skin dehydration. For a better alternative, if you’re looking to create a DIY face scrub, mix some baking soda into your regular cleanser and it help clean deep into pores without causing irritation to the skin.
