Women in Hollywood Are Getting Baby Foreskin Facials Now

First it was “vampire” facials and now affluent women and celebrities like Kate Beckinsale, Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett are going to spas to have the foreskin of circumcised babies applied to their skin for cosmetic reasons. 

How it works is: Dermal fibroblasts–skin cells that are responsible for generating connective tissue–are taken from the circumcised foreskin of infant penises and then used as a culture for growing new stem cells.

Those new cells are then used to make a serum that is applied to the face as part of a specialized facial.

The procedure costs $650 and is offered at the Georgia Louise Atelier in New York City, and has become a go-to among celebrities. 

In a recently deleted Instagram post, actress Kate Beckinsale reportedly admitted she got one of the penis facials.

“After a long flight I do like to lie down and be covered in a mask of liquified cloned foreskins-frankly who doesn’t?” People magazine reports the captioned an Instagram photo “Thank you @georgialouisesk for an amazing facial. I especially liked you reassuring me it would be ‘light on penis’ as it was my first time x.”

Yikes! The reply and backlash was swift and probably is the reason Beckinsale removed the post.  You can read Cafe Mom’s round up of some negative social media commentary HERE!

Earlier this year, Bravo TV scripted television star Jill Kargman tried out the procedure and penned her experience for Hollywood Reporter and even starred in a smiley photo after the treatment. Eeek!

This Australian News Mag Article About Motherhood Ruining Miranda Kerr’s Figure Got Me Heated

Opinion; by Jay Jay Ghatt

I was online and an article from an Australian news mag, news.com.au,  scrolled through my feed with an article discussing Australian super model Miranda Kerr, and specifically her comments in a recent Marie Claire article that are supposed to be about body positivity.

Kerr gave birth to her second son, Hart, six months ago, with husband, Snapchat founder, Evan Spiegel.

However, to me, the news.com.au article and especially its headline and Kerr’s statements in her Marie Claire interview do nothing to affirm the confidence of women who are mothers. Absolutely nothing in my opinion!

I am not sure the intent but they both missed the mark.

Let’s go through it, shall we?

At first blush, the headline reads that Kerr is “Ok that motherhood ruined her figure.” Oh really?

First of all, motherhood did not ruin her figure.  That is a very off-the-mark suggestion.

I am pretty sure motherhood enhanced her life and I’m also certain it gave her new curves. In  many cultures and countries around the world, curves are very much appreciated by many women and men worldwide.  Some women I know personally work hard to acquire curves.  Also, look at the Kim Kardashian phenomenon, for example. Note all these Instagram models that are getting butt enhancements, injections and wearing padded pants or photoshopping curves into there photos!

In that sense, then, motherhood made her figure better! It did not “ruin” her body, at all, necessarily!

Second, the headline casts a negative light on pregnancy and relays why a lot of women experience pregorexia and deprive themselves and their babies of much needed nutrients while pregnant over fear of gaining weight. This headline feeds into that very harmful notion of pregnancy being something that will mess up one’s body and figure.

I cannot stand it!

Inside the Marie Claire piece, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel who has a 7-year old son named Flynn with ex Orlando Bloom says “It’s OK, I’ve got a mum-bod and it’s fine!”

There is a very negative connotation behind the term “mum-bod” in that quote. This sentence relays that she is content with having a body associated with mothers. Ugh.

Society continue to tell women who are mothers that there bodies are unacceptable, not attractive and should be something we work hard on changing, altering, or improving.

The News.Au site feeds into this horrible notion when it states of Kerr, “even when she was heavily pregnant, Kerr showed off her curves for photographers.”

“Even when? “ “Even When?”

Hear me now: Women with or without having a baby bump have curves and take photos and have photos taken of them. Having curves is not a reason to not be worthy of being photographed!

I really hate this article! It’s so mean!

Then Kerr doesn’t add much to the convo by being quoted saying in that Marie Claire article, “I don’t mind. It’s all part of it. I took nine months – well, 10 months – to grow a beautiful child and it might take 10 months to feel good in a swimsuit again.”

You shouldn’t need a size 0 figure or body to feel good in a swim suit. It’s not a body positive article at all.

That’s all I have to say about this topic but there is no wonder women are not supported in so many aspects of their lives, before, during and after they join motherhood.

Media and major influential figure internalize and spout out so much toxic positions.

Ok. Off my high horse for the day! Have a great week all!

Let’s continue the conversation. I can be found everywhere in social media  @Bellyitch on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook!

 

Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade Welcome Daughter via Surrogate

Congratulations to actress Gabrielle Union and her husband Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade who welcomed a daughter via a surrogate last night.

The Being Mary Jane star announced the news with a poem starting with the lyrics of Bill Withers‘ song “Lovely Day” on her Instagram and Twitter accounts this afternoon, captioning three photos of her and the NBA player giving “skin-to-skin” contact with their newborn:

When I wake up in the mornin’ love

And the sunlight hurts my eyes

And there’s something without warning, love

Bears heavy on my mind

Then I look at you

And the world’s alright with me

Just one look at you

And I know its gonna be

A lovely day

A lovely day ?

A LOVELY DAY ?????? We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days. Welcome to the party sweet girl! #onelastdance #skintoskin@dwyanewade ❤??

Wade shared an identical photo and share on his Twitter and Instagram accounts as well. In the series of photos, Union lays in a hospital bed and bonds with the baby using a method that is important for newborn’s emotional development and growth after birth called Kangaroo care, named for the Australian marsupials that carry their newborn in their pouches shortly after birth.

The actress, who got her biggest break from her role in the cult classic pop culture film  Bring It On star had opened up about suffering through 9 miscarriages in a recent best-selling autobiography she released last year, “We’re Going to Need More Wine.

The Breaking In star writes in the book, which is a collection of essays, “for three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant—I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle.”

Sooo happy for them right now!! Congrats!!!! The celebrity baby girl boom continues! No news yet on the sweet girl’s name. Stay tuned!
