It’s safe to say our main distraction during this stay-at-home time has been our phones—hence, the alarming uptick in screen time. There is, however, something to blame: the highly entertaining celebrity content that makes the hours fly.

Bikini Bods Came Out of Hiding
While some of us saw quarantine as an excuse to take a break from the treadmill, others saw it as a motivator to work on their summer bodies, grinding in their at-home gyms behind the scenes. Tracee Ellis Ross complemented her glowing complexion with a black bikini, Eva Longoria Baston showed off her abs through a white one-piece, and Halle Berry celebrated her birthday with a cheeky—skateboard ride—54 never looked so good.


Only Necessary Touch-Ups Were Made
Actress Jenny Mollen told us she has a wonderful relationship with Botox, saying she gets her “forehead, ‘11s’ and crow’s-feet treated.” Paulina Porizkova said, “There is absolutely nothing wrong with having wrinkles,” but admitted she’s had five Ultherapy treatments and two plasma pen treatments to maintain her healthy glow.

Skin Care Was at an All-Time High
Drew Barrymore used her free time to share the beauty products that have kept her routine intact—one being this at-home skin-tightening treatment from Hanacure. Shay Mitchell, on the other hand, ventured out to the doctor’s office to get IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), a type of light therapy used to treat wrinkles and dark spots.

Makeup Palettes Got Dusted Off
Although a night out on the town was no longer the norm, celebs weren’t scared to bring the party to their vanities, where they curated makeup looks that were too good not to share.

Bodies Were Embraced
Bodies were not only shown off, but also hyped up on social media. Pink posted about her “thunder thighs,” Ashley Graham rocked her post-birth stretch marks, and Amy Schumer joked about body insecurities, which received lots of
laughs from followers, including A-listers like Katie Couric.


Stars Became Brand Founders
When full-time jobs get put on hold, there’s no better time to pick up a side gig. Lauren Conrad debuted Lauren Conrad Beauty, which she said “takes the stress out of the beauty routine”; Camila Coelho channeled her inner beauty guru to make Elaluz, meaning “she is light” in Coelho’s native Portuguese; Kate Hudson started a line of nutritional powders called InBloom; Selena Gomez founded Rare Beauty; and Catherine Zeta-Jones followed suit with Casa Zeta-Jones, a cruelty-free makeup brand—her first launch is a “perfectly buildable” mascara.
