Watch: WTF is this Madonna MDNA skincare advert all about?
The name of the product seems to imply more, however. The music star recently sat down for a television interview with Channel 4 in the UK, where she defended the act of skin-bleaching by saying that: White means pure, not necessarily skin, but in general. According to the website for Whitenicious, the cream is only for the face to help with blemishes, but the singers entire appearance in the products photos is completely lighter. She continued to defend her product: Some people they dont feel confident, they dont feel pure, they dont feel clean with dark spots. The interviewer also asked her if she thought that the message behind selling the product was that being white is better than being black. She responded: I was not selling that message, the media are selling that message. I didnt say, buy the cream and look like Dancia.I said seven days, fast acting dark spot remover. Its called reading comprehension. If people missed that class then its not my fault.If they think that their whole body is a dark spot then fine, because thats not how I feel. Lupita NyongO , who has spoken out about young girls feeling the need to bleach their skin , would most likely be a critic of the product and to that, the singer had this to say: I dont accept that. I dont care about her story. I dont know her.Im an adult and if I lighten my skin then thats my choice, the same as bleaching my hair. Watch Dancias interview above and let us know what you think of her comments below!

Q Do you have a list of products that do not contain essential oils, or evening primrose or rosehip oil? I take prescribed medication for a serious health problem, online which interacts with essential oils and it is impossible to find appropriate skincare on the high street, apart from Avene and Biotherm. (I prefer not to shop online.) Also, can you recommend a facial that I could have? A We are sorry to hear about your health problem but hope that we can help with skincare. Gill Sinclair, co-founder of Victoria Health , has a severe allergy to essential oils and says she has landed in A&E on a drip more times than I care to remember because I have unknowingly used products with essential oils or had them used on me. She recommends the American brand Derma E , which formulates products especially for sensitive skin. This range is, however, only available online in the UK.

Skincare regimes for each decade of life
It says its chain of stores in Hong Kong and growing cult status in Japan serve as a catalyst to expansion in the region. With the Asian skincare market projected to be worth in excess of $20 billion in 2014, Trilogy International CEO Stephen Sinclair believes the market opportunity for Trilogy is huge. The region currently represents 14 per cent of Trilogys natural skincare business and Japan alone is its fourth largest market. Every time Im in Asia, whether its in one of our more established markets or a new one, I see and hear evidence of the demand for quality products coming out of New Zealand. In department stores and specialist retailers throughout the region, more and more space is being devoted to innovative, high-performance natural skincare from our part of the world, said Sinclair. Trilogy has well-established relationships with department and specialist stores such as Isetan and CosmeKitchen in Japan and Robinsons in Singapore. Newer markets including Hong Kong and Thailand also offer exciting retail prospects. Newly appointed sales and marketing executive Li Jiang will work closely with distributors and key retailers throughout the Asian region to maximise opportunities in their local markets. Jiang has an existing affiliation with Trilogy, having been responsible for its Taiwanese launch in a previous role with distributor Coni International. In Japan, the Trilogy brand enjoys a profile bordering on cult status. Now with the local knowledge provided by Li Jiang, we are well-positioned to leverage our presence across the wider region, Sinclair said.

Madonna Introduces MDNA Skin Care Line With Trippy Video: Watch It Now!
This is either a daft advert or a good joke Madonna Tickets Madonna has launched a new skincare range. She has done so with one of the most bizarre promotional adverts we have ever seen. Check it out below. The clean-living star has launched a new range of skin creams, MDNA, named after her 2012 album. The black and white video shows a string of baffling shots of the star being pampered by assistants, lounging in empty bathtubs and pulling up her skirt to reveal her suspenders. More bizarre are the string of words she utters during the commercial – such as ‘substance’, ‘alchemy’, ‘serum’ and ‘immortal’. It is all very bizarre indeed, although she’s not looking to shabby, lets be honest. Watch the MDNA Skin commercial below – and then maybe reconsider your own skincare regime.

Beauty Bible beauty clinic: I am not able to use skincare products with essential oils – can you recommend alternatives?
Coast to Coast ‘s flagship boutiques are located in Melbourne, have storefronts popping up in Singapore and China, and is continuing success with the introduction of its premium range skincare collection nationwide. Coast to Coast officially introduced its best-selling skincare products this month, exclusively at Ulta Beauty stores and http://www.Ulta.com with plans to expand its offerings within the next year. What started as a passion project five years ago for husband and wife team Nick and Nicole Chadwick quickly transformed into a rapidly growing business with an emerging customer base in the global market. It all began with the duos journey through Australia where they discovered a variety of native plants rich in natural potency, special to three distinct terrains. In collaboration with a team of formulators, Nick and Nicole created what is now Coast to Coast, a skincare collection that combines indigenous Australian plant knowledge with modern science. The range is divided into three idyllic Australian landscape collections: Coastal, Rainforest and Outback; each formulated with a complex balance of organic ingredients, native botanicals, herbal extracts and essential oils, targeting specific skin concerns. It is an extraordinary thing to be able to share with the US market what we believe to be the best of Australia. Coast to Coast offers unmatched formulations and is the only natural skincare line in the US that draws all of its ingredients directly from the Australian landscape, says Nick Chadwick, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Coast to Coast. Our brand concept and philosophy is perfectly supported with Ulta and we could not have asked for a better retail partner. Ultas premium environment caters to a sophisticated consumer and provides its customers with an experience that is aligned with our values. Within the comprehensive portfolio of unparalleled skincare innovations are cleansing oils and waters, a cream-based eye makeup remover as well as a variety of clay masks, facial serums, and moisturizing lotions.

Australian Skincare Brand Coast to Coast launched exclusively at ULTA this month
* Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Radiance Renewer serum. * No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Night Cream. SIXTIES AND BEYOND Any issues that arose in your 50s will become more pronounced as you approach your 60s, 70s, and beyond. You might notice a significant loss of volume in your lips, with vertical lip lines also beginning to appear. The skin will continue to lose elasticity, collagen and moisture, causing more sagging. Again, if you were prone to excessive sunbathing in your youth, age spots might appear. This is also the time when cancerous lesions of the skin are most likely to manifest, so be careful to monitor any skin changes or unusual looking moles. Cleanse your face daily with a gentle cleanser, and then apply an antioxidant serum, facial oil and an SPF. At night, continue to use your Retin-A cream, followed by a facial oil and a heavy-duty night cream. Products: * Creme de la Mer Ultra Rich Cream.
