Bizarre Skincare Rituals That Celebrities Swear By

Bizarre Skincare Rituals That Celebrities Swear By

Celebrities tend to go to great lengths to maintain glowing skin, meaning that they often adopt some weird and wonderful skincare rituals. Considering they usually have a team of experts on hand who dish out the best beauty advice, many of these skincare rituals, some of which may initially seem downright bizarre, actually have some merit to them. 

Keep reading as Venofye explores some of the unusual skincare rituals that your favorite stars love, along with whether or not they’re worth trying.

Bee Sting Therapy

Apitherapy, which is also known as bee sting therapy, has been around for thousands of years. In essence, it involves being stung by bees in a controlled way, with bee venom revered for how it can do everything from reversing the look of aging to diminishing the appearance of acne.

From Kate Middleton to Gwyneth Paltrow, celebrities around the world have recently been raving about apitherapy, bringing this treatment into the spotlight once again. 

Is it Worth Trying?

There’s no denying the complexion-boosting benefits of bee venom – countless studies back these up. However, there’s also no getting away from the fact that apitherapy is painful – Gwyneth Paltrow herself confirmed this! Plus, once a bee stings your skin, it dies, meaning that this treatment isn’t exactly environmentally friendly either.

Fortunately, there’s an alternative – skincare infused with bee venom. The venom is harvested in a sustainable way that doesn’t harm the bees, after which it can then be used in everything from cleansers to serums to creams. It’s a fantastic topical ingredient, which is why it’s our signature ingredient here at Venofye. You’ll find it in all of our products, making it easy to add it to your skincare routine!

LED Light Therapy Masks and Devices

You’ve probably seen social media posts of celebrities using LED face masks. Julia Roberts, Chrissy Teigen, and Halle Berry are just a few of the stars who have indulged in these devices.

Again, this skincare ritual isn’t a new trend. LED light therapy has long since been known to benefit the skin in multiple ways, with its specific effects being dependent on the wavelength of light that’s used. For example, red LED light is great for reducing and preventing the appearance of aging, while blue will quickly zap away the visibility of acne and clear up your complexion.

Is it Worth Trying?


At-home LED skincare devices are well worth trying. The benefits of LED light therapy are impressive, and the fact that you now don’t need to visit your dermatologist to undergo this treatment is a big convenience.

While LED masks can be fun to use, people often find that they experience better results with a handheld LED device. Sure, this requires more effort on your part but it allows you to really target each session that you have. Try to pick a device that offers multiple modes, such as the Photonix-2 Eye Wand. This will enable you to continue using the device in the future for any new visible skin concerns that may arise.

Cleansing and Exfoliating With a Washcloth

Kim Kardashian is consistently making headlines because of the skincare rituals that she follows – people are still talking about her love for the vampire facial! However, another tradition that the star follows is using a hot washcloth to cleanse and then exfoliate her face.

According to Kim, this habit, which was passed down by her mother, not only feels relaxing but also provides great results.

Is it Worth Trying?

Blossom Bee Facial Peeling

Although Kim Kardashian is usually a goldmine for solid beauty advice, this would be one skincare ritual worth skipping, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, hot water is a big no-no. It’s way too harsh for the face, stripping away the skin’s natural protective barrier.

A washcloth is also not the best tool to exfoliate with. Sure, it works, and it often does so well, but there are better and safer options out there. If your skin could do with some exfoliation, we would recommend trying the Venofye Blossom Bee Facial Peeling. It will leave your skin looking so much brighter and smoother than a hot washcloth would!

Masking Before Makeup

Want to know one of the celebrity secrets behind getting your makeup to look fresh and vibrant for hours? Using a face mask before applying makeup.

This is a technique that’s championed by the likes of Gigi Hadid, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Priyanka Chopra, and more. They swear that giving their skin some TLC in the form of a face mask before they don their makeup gives their skin a major glow that their makeup then emphasizes.

Blossom Bee Wrinkle Smoothing Mask

Masking before makeup provides some very real benefits. You’ll be giving your skin a concentrated dose of hydration and nutrients. It will give you a smoother and firmer base to apply your makeup to while illuminating the skin in a way that leaves it looking healthy.

What type of face mask should you apply? Pick one that contains plenty of hydrating ingredients, along with ingredients that can brighten and revive the look of the skin. Venofye’s Blossom Bee Wrinkle Smoothing Face & Eye Mask is perfect for this. This hydrogel mask is infused with vitamins, antioxidants, and hydrating humectants. It will prep your complexion for your makeup application in a way that leaves your makeup looking beautifully polished!

Sleeping on Your Back

Although not technically a skincare ritual, Jennifer Aniston has revealed that one method she employs for keeping her complexion wrinkle-free is sleeping on her back, rather than on her side. This saves her from waking up with creases on her face, helping to maintain her youthful appearance.

In order to ensure that she remains on her back all night, the actress sets up a ‘nest’ of pillows. This prevents her from rolling over while she’s asleep, keeping her in one position.

Blossom Bee Night Cream

Many dermatologists can instantly tell which side you sleep on, simply by looking at your face. The side that you favor will be more creased than the other side, even if only subtly. Research confirms this, showing that sleep wrinkles can significantly contribute to skin aging, as well as facial distortion. 

So, when it comes to celebrity skincare rituals worth trying, this is definitely one. If you want to enhance your beauty sleep even further, pair your new sleeping position with a rich night cream. The Venofye Blossom Bee Quenching Night Cream, for example, will keep your skin saturated with moisture all night. It’s also brimming with antioxidants that will keep your skin cells feeling supported as they work on regeneration while you snooze.

Dry Brushing

Dry brushing is another ancient skincare technique that many celebrities love. From Miranda Kerr to Gwyneth Paltrow, several celebrities have been touting its benefits, showing off glowing skin from head to toe as a result.

If you’re not familiar with the concept, dry brushing involves running a special brush over your body before you shower. Starting at the feet, upward motions are used to stimulate the lymphatic system and exfoliate the skin.

Body Butter

Although there aren’t any studies that have examined the effects of dry brushing, the anecdotal evidence for this one is enough to go by. It’s a great way to exfoliate because it’s so gentle, and the massage action boosts circulation, which benefits the skin.

If you want to give this ritual a try, you’ll need to purchase a dedicated dry brush. Once you’ve used it, step into the shower to wash those dislodged dead skin cells off. Then, coat your skin in a rich body moisturizer, such as the Venofye Body Butter. Dry brushing will leave your skin feeling extremely receptive to any skincare products that you apply, making it the perfect time to treat your skin to the bee venom that our body butter contains!

Milk Sprays

Cindy Crawford certainly knows a few things about keeping her complexion youthful. At the same time, there’s no denying that some of her methods may seem a little bizarre, with milk spray being one of them!

This ritual involves mixing milk with water and storing the mixture in a spray bottle. Crawford then gives her face a few spritzes of this mixture throughout the day. Why? Because it supposedly keeps her skin feeling hydrated and healthy.

Blossom Bee Toner

While milk does offer some skin benefits, this skincare ritual could definitely end up smelling a little funky! There’s no disputing the fact that giving your skin some hydration throughout the day will help you to achieve a long-lasting glow but, if you don’t want to carry a bottle of milk around in your handbag, there are other ways in which you can do this.

Toners, for example, work well for regular hydration top-ups. Go for a hydrating, alcohol-free formula that doesn’t contain powerful astringents, such as the Venofye Blossom Bee Facial Toner. You’ll be able to give your skin a burst of moisture whenever it needs it, which will instantly leave it looking so refreshed!

Ice Baths

Ever felt the urge to jump into a bath full of ice cubes, or perhaps just dunk your face into an ice cube-filled sink? You may be saying no, but Lady Gaga, Kate Hudson, Bella Hadid, and so many other famous faces would all disagree!

This skincare ritual has become a go-to way for many celebrities to start their day. They claim that it helps to brighten and tighten the complexion while soothing the look of inflammation and redness.

Is it Worth Trying?

There’s a lot of truth behind the celebrity endorsements for ice baths. Exposing your skin to cold temperatures for a while temporarily constricts blood vessels. This has the effect of calming the appearance of redness and swelling while tightening up the look of the pores.

If an ice bath sounds too uncomfortable for your liking, there’s an alternative that you may prefer. Try storing some of your skincare products in your fridge. This way, when you apply them, your skin will benefit from those cold temperatures. At the same time, it won’t feel quite as extreme as sinking your face into icy water!

Which Skincare Rituals Will You Be Trying?

Although some of the skincare rituals that we’ve explored above may seem bizarre, most of them are well worth trying. From bee venom skincare to masking before makeup, each one will help to give your skin the flawless finish that celebrities always seem to sport!
