Khloe Kardashian has turned to an updated version of an unpopular elementary school device to beautify herself -- she got braces!
The 28-year-old reality show star recently decided to straighten her pearly whites, but she's not sporting a mouthful of metal -- instead she opted to go the Invisalign route. The clear braces are a great option for celebs with crooked teeth since they have to smile for the camera so often, but we still think Gwen Stefani is absolutely adorable with her "vintage" orthodontic accessory and her pink hair.
Khloe's barely-noticeable braces aren't her only beauty "secret." Here's a look a few other ways the Kardashian keeps herself looking great that aren't even close to being as strange as Kim Kardashian's bloody vampire facelift:
Don't worry -- Khloe doesn't use this greasy goop on her teeth like a pageant queen. Instead she slathers it on her knees, elbows, and feet once a week before going to bed. She swears that the cheap bathroom staple is a miracle-worker when it comes to dry skin.
Eye Shadow for her Scalp
Khloe doesn't just use dark eye shadow to create a smoldering smoky eye -- she also uses it on her scalp to conceal her thinning hair. She told People magazine that she likes to make sure her white scalp doesn't stand out from the rest of her skin: "If I bronze my face, I always take an eye shadow color [that matches my hair] and darken my scalp so it doesn't show how pale you really are." This is also a pretty nifty trick for smart gals who avoid sun damage by getting spray tans.
High Heels and Cardigans
Kim Kardashian may be having a hard time ditching her high heels while she's pregnant, but Khloe once gushed about them by telling Shape, "Whoever invented high heels is a genius. What they do for my legs, my calves, how they lift my booty-I'm obsessed! I could make a house out of my shoes and live there happily." She also recently told Redbook that she's insecure about her arms but that she's found a clever way to cover them up -- she disguises them by wearing airy crocheted cardigans that can be paired with cute sundresses. Perhaps the Kardashians should look into marketing high heels for hands that can lengthen and lift a woman's arms.
Khloe has been staying in shape by mixing up her workouts with boxing, hiking, and Pilates, but she also credits gulping down green drinks for her amazing weight loss. She recently wrote on her blog, "I am totally on a green kick right now! They look gross, but green drinks are so nutritious and delicious, contain tons of vitamins, and help you lose weight. Grab a green juice for a refreshing post-workout thirst quencher, or a protein-infused green smoothie for a light lunch. Drink better, feel better!"
She's right about the goopy green drinks looking gross, but they don't sound so bad. Khloe included a recipe for a banana raspberry smoothie that calls for 1 cup of raspberries, 1 peeled medium banana, 3 cups of fresh baby spinach, and 4-6 ounces filtered water or ice.
