Snooki told Conan O'Brien this week that she uses cat litter as face exfoliant (yes, she meant unused litter), and she isn't the first reality-TV star to promote an unorthdox beauty routine. Remember when Caroline Manzo of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" openly admitted to shaving her face for exfoliation?
It got us here at TODAY.com thinking about unusual products that double as beauty savers.
For example, though I could easily use one of the many hair-lifting volumizers on the market, I prefer good old-fashioned baby powder to boost my roots, and a friend of mine sometimes uses the yogurt in her fridge as a facial mask (which actually sounds rather appetizing). Do you have any smart tricks or bizarre rituals? Let us know!
Rina Raphael is an editor at TODAY.com and isn't embarassed to admit she hoards gallons of baby powder under her bathroom sink.
