Orinoterapia, the last extravagance of Madonna

There are certain barriers that we should never cross. When the 'facial vampire' became fashionable, we had our doubts. Did it really work? Is it safe ?, and above all, necessary? Discrepancies aside, it is one of the most widespread procedures among the famous to show off radiant skin. But it is not the only extravagance that the stars carry out to stay young. If not, tell them to Madonna, who has uploaded to his Instagram account a more than revealing video about what he does to stay spectacular at 61 years old.

In the Instagram video we can see how the singer, after each concert, takes ice baths with the aim of making the recovery of tendons and muscles faster after performing a demanding physical activity.
