It's tougher than ever for celebrities to live and age under the scrutiny of public pressure, if their continual body-shaming is any evidence.

The multi-hyphenate singer/actress/producer regularly takes whiffs from a vial of the fruit-based oil, which some believe affects the liver enzymes and promotes weight loss.
Another tidbit from the Blackbook of Celebrity Diet Secrets and the Epsom Salt spokesman himself is that supermodel Heidi Klum looks to epsom salts to keep her as trim as possible on the red carpet. She apparently soaks in a bath full of them before events in order to reduce bloating and draw out excess fluids.

She's now (unfairly) become the poster girl for the lengths women in Hollywood are pressured to go to in order to maintain their aging faces and figures, but years ago Zellweger foreshadowed this by saying that one fool-proof way to keep off weight is by simply eating ice cubes.
Though there's no real nutritional value there (besides it being, well, water), she was quoted as saying "As long as I get that 'constant feed' feeling, it's semi-tolerable." Oof.
