Below, some highlights:

On daily beauty routines:
Madonna: I sleep on my face so I wake up with puffy eyes. It’s the worst position to sleep in, so when I wake up my eyes look like 12 planets. I had to do something about it so I created these eye masks that I filled with eye serum and I put them in the freezer and then put them under my eyes.

I sip lemon water and I can’t function or speak to anyone or deal with life until my eyes are not planets. Then people can talk to me….[There is] a lot of ice in the morning — and caffeine. That’s the beginning of my beauty routine.

Kim KardashianMy mornings are madness. Sometimes I get up at 5 a.m. to work out before I take the kids to school. It’s usually what I do. I go at 5:45, I’m home by 7. I just go next door to my mom’s house, she lives across the street [and has a gym]. I don’t know if I even wash my face in the morning before I take my kids to school. I just brush my teeth and get out of there.

 

 

I’m really big on moisturizer. I’m really big on the scent rose. I have rose mist by my bed, I’m a moisturizing freak. I’m a hydrated mom on the way to school.

On beauty inspirations:
Madonna: For me, it was about Hollywood glamour and stars, women like Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich. They were the personification of beauty to me then…and they all look like they took good care of their skin. I don’t think any of them were sunbathers.

Those women were my role models in terms of skin care, but I grew up in the Midwest and sunbathing isn’t part of the culture there. So I avoided sunbathing and I never smoked. Those two things — until I could afford skin care — saved me.

K.K.: I really, really got so much skin-care advice from my mom and my grandma so I love treating my grandma to facials and skin-care products for her birthday and Christmas.

[But] honestly my mom [is my beauty inspiration].…[She] was a stewardess for American Airlines, and all the girls would save their money because there was some beauty class they would teach you. So when they stopped at the destinations all they wanted to do was take this class. My mom learned you should exfoliate your face with a hot washcloth at every washing. She’s seen the same facialist since she’s been 18 years old.

On when beauty first became important to them:
Madonna: For me personally, [beauty became important] when I started dancing. I trained to be a professional dancer and [it became important] when I started doing shows on stage and having people look at me and audiences and directors of my dance company scrutinizing me. When you become aware that people are watching and judging you, then you start caring about the way you look. Until then you’re spared the rigors of self judgment, whether you look good or not.

K.K.: I guess that makes so much more sense [agreeing with the above]. During our first season we didn’t get our hair and makeup done, and season two it was full force.

On new product launches:
K.K.: Next I have a collaboration with my makeup artist of 10 years, Mario [Dedivanovic]. We have a really cute collection coming out, something that we’ve worked on for a long time. And then I have concealers and a new fragrance coming out.

 

MADONNA: I have something called Reinvention Cream. I know I’m synonymous with the word reinvention, which is why I called this cream Reinvention. The main ingredient is from something called the resurrection plant.

Resurrection plants are primarily found in Africa and they grow in sub-Saharan areas and sometimes they can go for months or even years without any water or moisture at all. They kind of go in on themselves and look like very unattractive shrubs…[but] you drop a few drops of moisture on them and they open up. A flower comes out of it and they reinvent themselves. We’ve been able to extract the stems cells from this plant and put them in this all-in-one cream.

To me it personifies resilience, and that’s me. Resilience and reinvention and that’s how we keep going. I love the connection to the plant, the connection to Africa and then finally, a portion of proceeds from all sales will go back to Raising Malawi [the nonprofit Madonna founded in 2006].

On the must-have products from their own lines:
Madonna: The Serum, The Rose Mist spray and the Eye Masks that I don’t speak to people until I use them in the morning.

K.K.: I started off with contour. I love contour; no matter what I’m doing, I always contour…[with] powder and cream, that’s pretty basic. I do have concealer coming out and in a kit because I do concealer in steps so I have the steps coming out. That’s my favorite concealer I’ve ever used — and I use a lot of concealer.

On the best skin-care advice ever received or given:
Madonna: The best skin-care advice that I’ve always received and paid attention to is stay out of the sun…and hydration.

K.K.: Mine is just moisturizing. I love giving advice, though, people always come to me. I love analyzing someone’s face and going with them to a doctor and being like, “Wait, a little Botox here, a little drop of filler here.” That kind of advice, that’s what I love to give. People write to me — I won’t say who, but some people in the business, people that I’ve never met before, will text me and say, “Hey this is so and so, I heard you give the best advice. Can you look at my pictures and tell me what you think I should do.” I’m a huge liability.

wow I didn't know that she sleep like that! It's literally brand new information to me.

by the way It's just not worst position, it is very dangerous position to sleep.

I sleep exactly the same!  It's really annoying as I try my best not to, but just happens.  I wake up with puffy eyes and creases on my face.  I've just had my eyes treated so they look better now thankfully.  Lovely.

How does Madonna remain ageless? Think sheep.

https://businessmirror.com.ph/how-does-madonna-remain-ageless-think-sheep/

Madonna is in the news again, and it’s not because of any sex-induced controversy the music goddess has become famous—or infamous—for.  It’s because she’s now teaming up with pop culture icon Kim Kardashian.  Their photos have been shared, liked and reposted a lot of times, the Internet going bonkers over a possible collaboration.

Thank God the collaboration seems to be about Madonna’s skin-care line MDNA and it makes a lot of sense.  Kim is one of the most powerful influencers today and MDNA is the epitome of immortality.

It’s no denying that Madonna’s staying power doesn’t only rely on her being a constant evolver, and she continues to be a pop vanguard.  She has remained contemporary even after three decades in the industry, and dang! She looks good doing it.

We all know she does Kabbalah and all sorts of other regimens to make sure she can still give divas half her age a run for their money. But I just learned that Madonna undergoes living-cell therapy in the clinic of Prof. Dr. Daniel Block, a third-generation doctor who has pioneered this treatment (his grandfather studied under Prof. Dr. Paul Niehans, considered the father of modern living-cell therapy. Between him and Niehans, they treated, among others, Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Nelson Mandela, Pablo Picasso, Pope Pius XII, US President Harry S. Truman and many more).

Dr. Daniel Block was recently in the country to talk about living-cell therapy. In an intimate chitchat with the press, he revealed he has been working as the managing director of the Fresh Cell Therapy Clinic Dr. Block and D. Siegfried Block GmBH-Center for Living Cell Thearpy since 2009. He studied in the US and Germany. Block also told us about his clinic and the source of his living cells: around 700 mountain sheep exclusively for the gaming of living cells.  The sheep are meticulously cared for as their cells and minute cell unions, derived from unborn mountain sheep, are extracted under clinical conditions in its EU-certified laboratory, suspended in a natural solution and immediately injected into the patient. Around 85 different organs or parts of organs can be extracted. These new injected organ cells will stimulate, revitalize and restore a patient’s weakened and damaged organ cells.

Among the disorders living-cell therapy can help with are sleep disorders, stroke, osteoporosis, cerebral palsy, after-effects of polio, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes I and II, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cancer (as an additional treatment) and many more.

The D. Siegfried Block GmBH and Clinic Dr. Block is always the top choice when it comes to fresh cell therapy because of its ancestry of excellence—from Professor Niehans to Dr. Siegfied Block, Dr. Petra Block (Daniel’s mother) and Dr. Daniel Block. It’s highly distinguished from the others because it is the only clinic that extracts and injects the cells under the highest standard in Germany. The cell extraction is under clinical conditions and immediate injection is required to attain the highest efficiency.

That’s why if you want to do this, you have to block off six days for treatment (which includes the testings and injections of the living cells and rest), additional travel time as this is all done in Germany. Cost is estimated at €12,500 (excluding airfare).

Since I’m obsessed with anything Madonna, I told myself that I will sell my body so that I can raise enough money to afford the treatment. Now, if you know someone willing to overpay an overaged and overweight homosexual, let me know please.
