Actors And Their Sometimes Strange Personal Hygiene Habits
Just like millions of people who aren’t in the spotlight, celebrities have their personal hygiene hacks that help keep them confident and focused but not always clean. These habits may sound strange, but each person has their own traits, which help to mold them into unique individuals.
Just because celebrities are rich and can afford to spend top dollar to gain access to the most technologically advanced products on the market, it doesn’t mean that they always do. They are also intelligent, and realize that some of that stuff may do more harm than good.
Take Catherine Zeta-Jones for example: Instead of buying teeth whitening products that could cause you pain and eventually damage your teeth, she uses strawberries to maintain her white smile.
Katy Perry brushes her teeth six times a day, and she carries 20 toothbrushes around with her. The brushing six times a day thing is admirable, but why does she need 20 toothbrushes? Yes, one regular toothbrush takes up less space than an electric toothbrush set, but 20? They would take up more space than most of the combination electric toothbrushes and top waterpiks. She may be better off just getting multiple heads for an electric toothbrush to satisfy her habit.
With the ever-rising number of OCD individuals on the planet, products like instant hand sanitizer wipes and sprays are quite popular. However, Cameron Diaz doesn’t have time to whip these products out all the time. She habitually uses her elbows to open doors so that her hands remain germ-free. She will probably continue to do this for a while or at least until door handles that dispense hand sanitizer are the norm. This actress’ peculiar hygiene habits don’t end here. Her idea of going green is to wear an outfit for four days without washing it. Then she gets rid of it; hopefully it goes to Goodwill or something. She also hasn’t worn deodorant for 20 years.
Good hygiene doesn’t just have to do with taking showers, reaching for the hand sanitizer every few minutes and keeping your teeth squeaky clean. It has to do with how clean your diet is and your level of alcohol consumption too. Rob Lowe recognized the ill affects of alcohol 23 years ago, and he has been clean ever since. His secret? He says: It works if you work it.
Gwyneth Paltrow has taken eating clean to the ultimate level. To her, eating clean means cutting out coffee, meat, sugar, processed foods, alcohol, wheat, soy, eggs and corn. That’s not all though. She only eats locally and seasonally. She is in the habit of following this strict diet for as long as three weeks at a time, and she does it a few times a year. However, there was a time when she was dealing with some serious health issues, and she ate like this all the time. To let people know what else there is to cook with and how you can make tasty meals when on this super clean diet, she published a cookbook.
Jessica Alba encourages her fans to eat clean too. She says eating organic, fresh, unprocessed, non-GMO foods will give you that beautiful glow that she is always sporting and will save you from the task of counting calories. She also uses all natural beauty products and mineral makeup.
Miranda Kerr encourages everyone to eat organic to keep unhealthy cravings at bay. She also swears by Noni juice, which she has been using since she was 13. Drinking it is supposed to beautify and soften the skin, and it strengthens the immune system.
While some of these actors’ habits seem a bit extreme, they allow them to reach the highest potentials of health, cleanliness and well being; and those of them with personal hygiene habits that don’t make sense just confirm that they are humans with flaws like everyone else, that they have OCD or they just don’t realize that there’s an easier way to do things.
