Beyoncé Knowles reportedly believes her "glam squad" is as important as her security guards.

The superstar singer works hard to stay in shape, exercising regularly and investing in treatments to look good too. Part of that means she always has a team on hand to help her look her best, and she's apparently come to believe they are vital to her life.

'Beyoncé puts herself under extreme pressure to look perfect'

"Beyoncé puts herself under extreme pressure to look perfect, never leaving the house without her hair and make-up professionally done," an insider told the American edition of OK! magazine. "As far as she and her team are concerned, a glam squad is just as integral to her daily life as her security detail."

It's claimed that Beyoncé splashes out thousands of dollars every week to ensure she is in tip-top condition. That means having regular facials, which are said to be top of her list because they help ensure her skin looks younger than her years.

The 33-year-old star is rumoured to invest as much as $1 million (R11,55 million) annually to look fresh faced. That cash is splashed on a variety of things, including twice-weekly meetings with a nutritionist which are thought to set her back $50 000 (R574 000) a year.

$200 000 (R2,3 million) goes on a personal trainer, gym equipment and related fitness costs, while it's rumoured that keeping her fingers and toes in fresh polish totals around $20 000 (R229 300).

By far the biggest chunk of cash goes on her hair and make-up though. It's suggested that Beyoncé spends around $545 000 on her tresses and cosmetics, taking in everything from wigs to eyelash extensions.

The star is known for switching up her look, and she caused a storm last year when she was spotted rocking a super short fringe.

While it seems like a lot of money, Beyoncé has made no secret of her love for fashion and make-up. Last year she teamed up with her manicurist Lisa Logan and beauty company NCLA to create her own range of nail wraps, and she also confirmed she's designing a range with Topshop.

She's been less vocal about her exercise regime though, previously explaining that she doesn't want to be photographed in a sweaty post-exercise state which is why she relies on other ways to keep fit.

"When I'm on tour I dance two hours a night, so I don't need to work out. When I'm not on the road I try to work out regularly. I run about two-and-a-half miles on the treadmill and I have a trainer. But it's sexier when it doesn't look like you go to the gym," she told Very magazine.
