The star partakes in a high-tech ritual to release toxins.

Singer Selena Gomez decompresses by sweating profusely in a space suit.

The 23-year-old Good for You hitmaker is currently performing shows across the world as part of her Revival Tour, and when she needs to take a break from all the pressure, the star can be found chilling out in an odd device located in her dressing room.

"I have a sweat bed," she tells People magazine. "I usually get in it for 45 minutes to an hour, and I just sweat in this space suit-looking thing, which is really hilarious, and I look disgusting. But it's also so good for you. It's good to get out all the toxins. I did it at least three times a week before I left for tour. And then we brought it on the road as well because it makes me feel good. My skin feels great and it just gets out all the bad stuff."

When it comes to caring for her hair, Selena, who serves as ambassador for hair product line Pantene, is much more low-tech.

The singer simply stays away from overdoing it when it comes to daily maintenance for her locks, noting having strong, thick tresses is an essential part of putting on a good performance as she treks across the globe on her Revival Tour.

"My hair already goes through so much damage so I won't wash it every night," she shares. "(Hairstylist Marissa Marino) likes to use deep conditioners and obviously, because I don't wash my hair all the time, she uses lighter products so it doesn't go as crazy. The Airspray by Pantene is so light and I usually just douse that all over my hair and I'll flip it all around."

Selena adds: "My hair is such a crucial part of my show. I remember at some point somebody was asking, 'Oh, should we pull it up for a section on stage?' And I was like, 'I wouldn't even know what to do if I pulled my hair up.' I love how my hair feels when I'm on stage because of the fans and movement - it's a part of my routine in a weird way."
