Like when they decide to dye their underarm hair pink. As you do.
It's really the last frontier in celebrity over-sharing, you know. Famous people are open about everything else on Instagram, but one thing you don't see next to painstakingly composed shots of almond croissants? Eyebrow tweezing! Mustache bleaching! Here, we've rounded up some rare self-maintenance pics, from Karlie Kloss in curlers to Sofia Vergara being massaged by some suction-y contraption.
He's already won his first Grammy, but there's no such thing as too much preparation. Or too perfect a complexion. (FWIW, he's using the Talika Bio Enzyme Hydrating Mask.)
Mindy Kaling is all of us, down to the "zit cream in your 30s"/done for the night face.
Kylie promised to take us into her personal life, and take us into her personal life she did. In a series of Snapchats, the recent convert to small mouths has her eyebrows and upper lip waxed, much to the delight of her friends, who are there for some reason.
Being swamped with NYFW, the 19-year-old model had to resort to shaving her legs in the back of a car substituting shaving cream for water. Ouch.
Like pretty much everyone in 2015, Miley's blood type is avocado—so much so that she smashed one and used it as a moisturizing mask.
A flight is nothing if not an opportunity to make yourself prettier. Teigen knows this better than anyone, sporting a moisturizing (and fellow passenger frightening) sheet mask miles high in the air.
Say goodbye to the pit hair! Cyrus Instagrammed this shot, where the seemingly painful removal was revealed for all to see. (Including the "after." Be prepared for this one!)
There's always that one "lil struggle curl," as Solange put it.
Three lip masks is definitely a trend, especially when the other two are Lady Gaga and, well, us. *fluffs hair*
Preceding Lady Gaga's epic hair transformation, she prepped with a sheet mask, some oversize sunglasses, and her even more oversize Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring.
Then, while her hair lightened, the singer did "a series of plant stem cell masks and collagen lip jelly mask. Good for hydration and plumping with no 💉 or silly bruising!" Ooooooh, I see what you did there.
While most of us are applying mascara with our mouths wide open, Victoria Beckham is poised and perfect with a wand at the ready. It's just not fair.
Making her third appearance in this gallery, Karlie Kloss pastes some plastic sheets onto her peacefully smiling face before the Met Gala.
Miley Cyrus isn't apologizing for growing out her armpit hair (you do you, Miley!) and she's even going as far as changing it up—showing off her "bleaching party" on Instagram. "Don't eat the bleach baby" she captioned the first pic, before debuting her new, pink armpits.
The theme for this batch of Instagrams is personal hygiene.
And flossing. Takeaway: Dental care is very important and fashionable.
"6 a.m. call times be like..." Same.
Touch-ups count, especially when you've spent the last few months of your life tied up and blindfolded.
Told you! Beauty show-and-tell even makes supermodels shy.
Nice wiggling-at-the-base technique, Emily Didonato.
It's hard to believe Beyoncé painted all 10 nails, but she did do one, and it was for a good cause.
*chants* "Eyeliner tutorial, eyeliner tutorial"
"Garlic bread for lunch 😬 mint flavored EOS should work right?"
Italian bidets are essential for foot care, mmhmm.
Cover the sign, cover Reese Witherspoon's head, and this could be any of us, no?
Her caption: "What is so funny Marilyn??" *snickers*
I mean, nothing about this is particularly normal, but it was too good not to include.
This is cool, but where in Japan ARE you, Miranda?
Note the curlers.
