Madonna's Beauty Secrets

celebrity beauty secrets
How does Madonna do it? She’s 50 years old and has the body of a 20 year old – just what is her celebrity beauty secrets - Madonna?

Well, first off, this mother of three children is super rich and can afford to stay this thin and in shape. She is a fitness queen for sure and applies a strict diet regimen and workout routine to stay this great looking.

So what is her celebrity diet secret? She works out for two to three hours a day practicing Ashtanga yoga, pilates, cycling, weight training and swimming. Included in this difficult regime are two workout machines called a Power-Plat and a Cardio Wave. For us mere mortals that have to work at a real job, we would never be able to invest this amount of time on a daily basis for working out.

Added to her workout regime, Madonna follows a strict macrobiotic diet. She does not dine out often in restaurants because as she says, “You can never be entirely sure what’s on your plate”. A macrobiotic diet consists of organic vegetables, fruits, grains and natural sugars. . The macrobiotic diet eliminates such foods as oils, dairy, processed food, sauces and spices which all help to contribute to weight gain and bloating. It is also high in phytoestrogens which is healthy for women when they are approaching their later age. A macrobiotic diet is difficult to follow if you don’t have the income to buy the foods required for this diet, the special pots and pans needed to prepare the food and it would help if you had your own chef to help prepare these menus.

Besides her diet secrets, Madonna is rumoured to use an anti-aging snake oil cream which costs about $1,000 per jar. She smoothes on the cream regularly at 8:00 p.m. every night. She then places herself in a body bag to sleep in to help fight the battle against aging to keep her skin soft and smooth.

Some of these celebrity beauty secrets would be hard to follow for people that don’t have the incomes of the stars. Beauty takes time, energy and money, but we can learn from the celebrities and adapt their beauty secrets to our life.

Celebrity Beauty Secrets from Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren, the glamourous Italian actress who is over 71 years of age, when asked about her celebrity beauty secrets, revealed that her beauty came from “a love of life, spaghetti, and the odd bath in virgin olive oil.” No doubt, this actress from Italy eats healthy fresh Mediterranean foods and extra virgin olive oil which is organic and available in abundance in Italy. Her habit of bathing occasionally in olive oil is an anti-aging tradition dating back to her Roman ancestors. Olive oil is moisturizing and not only super good for the skin but also when ingested, it is great for your health. One of Sophia’s recent achievements is to be the oldest woman to model for the sexy Pirelli calendar.

In the days before botox and the many other cosmetic surgery options available for women today, Sophia Loren was told to have her nose fixed. But she refused believing that women must mold themselves to fit someone else’s ideal of beauty. She thinks this is unnatural. She didn’t get her nosed changes and she has survived and succeeded with great success and beauty even in her winter years.

She also goes to bed, habitually at 9:00 p.m. She said in an interview that she had “grown accustomed to going to bed at this time since childhood when I’d always get up at seven in the morning to study. Eventually I decided to keep the habit”. Whoever said we should get our beauty sleep was surely referring to Sophia as a prime example of this great habit.

This beautiful celebrity has written a book about her thoughts on beauty and has developed a very strong concept of what beauty means. She states that a woman must realise her own beauty for it to shine through, and adorn herself in beautiful jewellery. She concludes, "Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than being convinced that she is indeed beautiful. And only a jewel renders this state of mind more real”. "The hands are very important; they speak the language of the gestures - just like the mouth." "They should be coloured with jewels just like the mouth is coloured with lipstick. "Also a woman's dress must be like a metallic fence, it should serve its purpose without obstructing the view."

Her signature makeup look has always been a winged cat eye with usually nude color lipstick, lipstick shade dependent upon the occasion.

We can learn celebrity beauty secrets from the likes of the great beauties such as Sophia Loren. Some actresses are generous enough to share their beauty secrets with us mere mortals. So, pasta, attitude, olive oil and jewellery are on my next shopping list!
