Martha Stewart's $2,000 beauty habit

The cornerstone of her domestic empire is perfection, so it’s hardly a surprise that Martha Stewart’s beauty secret is a highly regimented process involving face masks, serums, toning lotions, moisturizers, eye creams, and cleansing oils.

In yesterday’s New York Times, Stewart, a former model, shared a detailed breakdown of her daily skin care and wellness routine. What does it cost to keep Martha looking good?

After tallying the retail prices of her must-have skin care, makeup, hair care products, and signature fragrance, fashion blog Racked.com valued the contents — everything from a Mario Badescu facial spray ($7) to Cle de Peau’s Le Serum moisturizing serum ($325) — of Stewart’s bathroom vanity at $2,103.

And that doesn’t include what she shells out for her go-to facialist, manicurist, masseuse, hairstylist, hair colorist, and eyebrow specialist, which Racked estimates cost upwards of $700 a month.

While Stewart’s beauty budget sounds extravagant to us common folk, it pales in comparison to what Hollywood stars spend on upkeep. Jennifer Aniston has a rumored $14,000 monthly regimen that includes bi-weekly spray tans, chemical peels, pre-red carpet facials worth around $800, and the services of a dietician, hairstylist, yoga instructor, and makeup artist.

When it comes to wellness, Stewart told the Times that she works out with a personal trainer, practices yoga with a private instructor — she also likes spinning, but doesn’t have time to do it — and drinks a special green juice every morning. Her mantra; “You can be the most beautiful person on earth, and if you don’t have a fitness or diet routine, you won’t be beautiful.”
