How to look younger – by the women over 50 who already do!
They may have the money to afford to look this good, but you can’t deny that certain celebrities look absolutely amazing for their age. Whether it’s an incredible complexion, eternal youthful glow, or an enviable figure, we want to know how these women do it! Luckily they’re willing to share their anti-ageing secrets…
63-year-old swimsuit model Christie Brinkley makes 60 look like the new 20. There aren’t many of us who would be willing to pose in a bathing suit on the front of a global magazine, but Brinkley made it look easy when she posed alongside her daughters for Sports Illustrated – almost four decades since she first appeared in the mag 1979!
Her secret to looking so good? It’s all about what you eat! But that doesn’t mean diets.
“I tried some pretty weird diets in the beginning … everything from juice fasting to eating one kind of food at a time, to eating a grapefruit first before everything,” she explained to NY Mag. “The only thing that really lasts is a well-balanced diet.”
Christie is a vegetarian, and she loves to eat salads with beans, grains or lentils. She also let’s herself snack – as long as it’s healthy! She reaches for an apple with peanut butter instead of a bag of crisps for example. But despite fruit filled breakfasts and veggie heavy lunches and dinners, Christie doesn’t deny herself simple pleasures.
“I like a glass of red wine with dinner because it doesn’t interfere with my sleep” she revealed. She also has a weak spot for cheese especially, “mozzarella and pasta.” Yum!

Actress Elise Neal stars alongside Hugh Jackman in the smash-hit action movie ‘Logan’. Not only is she super fit to keep up with the mega-buff Hugh, but she also looks incredible for her age. The gorgeous star turned 51 this year – and looking at photos of her, we just can’t believe it!
So, how does Elise stay looking so young? Well, the actress credits a strict workout routine for staying fit and youthful.
“I train and work out really hard regardless of whether I’m in a film, or if I have to do something physical for a project or not” Neal told PEOPLE magazine. “I’ve enjoyed being fit my whole life.”
Aside from keeping her in shape and incredibly fit, Elise’s daily workouts also help her sleep better and keep calm. Both lack of sleep and stress can be big contributors to ageing, so this is also key to her ageless appearance!
“Working out an hour or an hour and a half every day is the norm for me unless it’s really, really hectic. I just love it. I feel better, I sleep better, I don’t get angry with people so much. It helps me all the way around. I’d like that feeling to continue so I try my best to keep it up.”
