Seven Bizarre Celebrity Beauty Treatments
Botox is amateur stuff when it comes to beauty treatments these days.
ICONIC actress Joan Crawford famously once said “any actress who appears in public without being well-groomed is digging her own grave”.
In the ongoing quest to remain beautiful, celebrities are now getting bizarre treatments that they hope will keep them relevant in Hollywood.
Here are seven celebrities who have endorsed wacky ways to reverse the ageing process:
