Here are some of the most quirky rituals celebrities follow to keep their glow.

Leech therapy

This method of detoxification involves sitting in a pool of leeches and let them suck your blood, with the purpose of eliminating toxins from the body. Leech saliva contains anaesthetic and anti-clotting properties and they can expand blood vessels, which is why they have been used in medicine since ancient Egypt. It is doubtful, however, that they could detox the body better than the liver, the Daily Mail reports.

Demi Moore, 48, is a fan of this therapy and she deightedly shared about her experience: “You watch the leech swell up on your blood, getting fatter and fatter.”

Venom face masks

This type of cream contains the natural equivalent of Botox to reduce wrinkles. The venom from this skin cream slightly stings the complexion, which signals the brain to relax and strengthen facial muscles.

Gwyneth Paltrow, 38, is addicted to the snake venom treatment. Dannii, 39, and Kylie Minogue, 43, often use bee venom masks.

Human placenta facial

This treatment involves applying a face mask based on the human placenta (collected from Russian maternity wards). The skin remains smooth and shiny as the placenta is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and amino acid that help stretch the skin.

Jennifer Lopez applies this treatment twice a week. Reese Witherspoon and Madonna are also fans of this treatment.

Ice chambers

Kriotherapy involves subjecting the body to very low temperatures for three minutes to relieve the pain and reduce cellulite. Blood rushes around your extremities, causing the production of serotonin, the “happy hormone.”

Pamela Anderson and Tony Blair have been known to have the Ice Chamber treatment.

Bird poo facial

Bird excrement (nightingale droppings collected in Japan) is oiled over the face for a glowing effect, thanks to an enzyme that breaks down the top layers of skin.

Victoria Beckham is among the celebrities who are fans of the facial. She now uses a cream containing the bird droppings.
