Since we can’t all have a team of beauticians working on our skin, hair, makeup, and nails at all hours of the day, we have to rely on the beauty secrets of celebs to help us look as fab as they do. Every celebrity comes with their own glam squad and their own unique beauty tips and tricks. Scroll through for some amazing celebrity beauty secrets from Hollywood’s most glam ladies, and start amping up your beauty routine! (This might be the only time we tell you to look to Kim Kardashian for advice.)

“I love dry-brushing before showers. It’s a great way to stimulate blood circulation and get rid of dead skin cells. A Thai massage — a cross between a massage and a yoga class — also does wonders for my mind-body connection. Afterward, I feel like I have a whole new body.”
