(Newser) – You've heard about Tom Cruise's bird poo facials—but he's far from the only star to put something kinda icky on his face in the name of beauty. Celebuzz rounds up 10 more completely crazy celebrity beauty rituals:

  • Simon Cowell indulges in sheep placenta facials to keep himself wrinkle-free.
  • Gwyneth Paltrow prefers snake venom facials to maintain her youthful appearance.

  • And Kate Middleton's choice? The bee sting facial.
  • Demi Moore has detoxed her blood through "leech therapy," which is exactly what it sounds like: attaching leeches to her skin.
  • We like the sound of wine and a nice hot bath, but Teri Hatcher actually adds her wine to the bath to keep her skin soft.
Click for the complete list—including a few more celebs who just love the bird poo facial, and one who spends thousands on "diamond-and-ruby peels."

When I hear of diamond and ruby peels, when children are starving---well, it makes me want to vomit.
