Naomi Campbell has shared her ritual before each runway show – getting a lymphatic drainage massage.
The massage is a deep tissue treatment where pressure is applied to the body in long upwards strokes, said to get rid of toxins in the body.
The model explained she has the procedure, which includes having her shins rolled with a rolling pin, to combat water retention. She also has the massage whenever she gets off a plane.
Speaking in the latest episode of her YouTube series, Naomi, 50, said: ‘It’s not painful, but it’s not soothing. I try to do this as much as I can, actually, because I am 50 years old. Women at my age do have water retention.’
‘The first time we (did this), I must say it tickled me so much! I giggled and laughed, and then you get used to it’ she added, before dissolving into laughter as the masseuse moved to her stomach.
She added that it felt like ‘being made into bread’.
‘That’s what you want with your body. No lumps, no bumps, no cellulite – no, no, no!’ the fashion icon added.
The supermodel is set to put pen to paper for her memoir, which will definitely be a must-read given her long-running fashion career.
She just needs to get round to starting it.
Naomi told Vogue last year: ‘I had this old-school way of looking at it as having to put pen to paper.’
Adding that she turned to music producer Clarence Avant for advice, she went on: ‘I asked him, “Clarence, How do you do it? How do you start writing?” And he told me, “Just start from anywhere. Don’t start from the beginning.” So it is going to happen!’
