Previously, on weird reality TV beauty practices that make a fair bit of sense, we brought you three hair and makeup hacks from the cast of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.
There was reality star Charlotte Crosby’s DYI hair straightener that actually worked. And Australian entertainer Rhonda Burchmore OAM’s eyebrow pencil made from charcoal from the fire.
Now, it’s time to turn our attention to the salty shores of Australian Survivor: All Stars.
You can watch a snippet of Survivor contestant Shonee’s facial trick in the video below. Post continues after video.
You see, in all their free time stuck on a Fijian Island thinking about how they can outwit, outplay and outlast one another, some of the Survivor Australia: All Stars contestants have come up with some pretty nifty island beauty hacks.
From salt water facials to braided mullets, keep scrolling for our thoughts on whether these tips would stack up in the real world.
P.S. Full transparency, a few of these island beauty hacks are… questionable. But there are definitely some nuggets of wisdom to take away.
1. Mud baths.
Some of the challenges Survivor host Jonathan LaPaglia has the contestants going through are downright barbaric. But the ones where they end up covered head-to-toe in mud could actually be contributing to their beauty routines. Maybe.
Theoretically speaking, mud contains a bunch of minerals and clays that work to draw out impurities from the skin. Even the fictional character Louis Litt from Suits raves about the benefits of ‘mudding’ (laying in a bath full of mud), so it must be good, yeah?
