Top 5 Weird Celebrity Beauty Treatments

In a world where youth trumps everything, many celebrities are eager to push the boundaries when it comes to beauty treatments.

When money is no object, there’s plenty of anti-aging treatments to spend money on that are, mildly put, bizarre. 

Here’s a glance at some of the weirdest beauty rituals practiced by the rich and famous, but rituals you might want to pass:

Breast Milk Facial Serums – Jodie Turner-Smith

British actress and model Jodie Turner-Smith has taken “DIY skincare” to a whole new level. Rather than make her own face peels, she uses her own breast milk to make face serums. 

She does this based on the belief that the lactic acid in breast milk can brighten and smooth the skin. While lactic acid is indeed a recognized skincare ingredient for its exfoliating properties, the idea of using breast milk in facials remains largely unexplored, unproven, and a little too bizarre for most people to try.

Vampire Facials – Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian shocked the beauty world when she revealed she’d had a  ‘vampire facial’ to maintain her stunningly youthful looks.

Vampire facials involve extracting your own blood, processing it to increase the platelet count, and reapplying the plasma to your face. 

The procedure aims to stimulate skin healing and renewal. But the vampire facial carries risks such as infections, and the scientific evidence backing its benefits is sparse.

Bee Sting Therapy – Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow, a trailblazer in experimenting with unconventional beauty treatments, has dabbled in bee sting therapy. 

This practice, known as apitherapy, involves intentional bee stings to reduce inflammation and scarring. 

However, besides being painful and potentially lethal to those with allergies, there’s little scientific support for its skincare benefits.

Hemorrhoid Cream for Eye Bags – Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock’s secret weapon against under-eye puffiness isn’t cold compress, limiting salt, or even sleep… but hemorrhoid cream. 

Supposedly, the cream reduces inflammation and tightens the skin. But experts warn against its regular use on delicate skin under the eyes, as it can lead to dryness and irritation over time.

Placenta Facials – Jennifer Lopez

According to reports, Jennifer Lopez’s age-defying skin might be the result of facials that use placenta. 

Promoted for its supposed growth factors and hormones, placenta facials are believed to rejuvenate the skin. But there’s a glaring lack of scientific evidence to support these claims, making this expensive treatment more of a luxury placebo than a skincare necessity.

Blood Moisturizer – Victoria Beckham

Taking personalized skincare to the literal level, Victoria Beckham is rumored to have spent $1,500 on a moisturizer formulated with her own blood. The idea is that growth factors in the blood can revive the skin from within. 

While it sounds like the ultimate tailor-made solution, the effectiveness of blood moisturizers for anti-aging purposes remains controversial and largely unverified.

Rather than celebrity fueled trends, focus on skincare treatments backed by science


In their pursuit of perfection, celebrities are happy to be the guinea pigs of the beauty world, trying out treatments that are as extravagant as they are questionable. 

Although it’s tempting to follow in the footsteps of our favorite stars, it’s essential to approach unusual beauty rituals with skepticism. Few of them are backed by science, and all of them cost a fortune.

Which is why, when it comes to skincare, focus on using treatments and products backed by proven science, like those in the Del Mar Labs range. 

This maximizes your chance of getting the age defying results you desire. And without the risk of throwing your money away on unproven treatments based on celebrity hype.
