Some women go to the ends of the earth to keep the dreaded laugh lines at bay, from pricey procedures like Botox to bizarre methods like stabbing their face with a dozen acupuncture needles. If you were them, you’d stop laughing too.
Instead, here are 10 celebrities’ simple anti-aging secrets that you can practice at home too.
1. Cindy Crawford
You’d never be able to tell Cindy Crawford is 50 from just looking at her. Her secret: regularly misting her face with a mixture of whole milk and water. The lactic acid in the dairy product moisturizes, exfoliates, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Simply leave it on for 15 minutes and let it work its magic.
2. Jennifer Aniston
Vaseline? It’s an anti-aging weapon too, apparently – Jennifer Aniston, 47, reportedly religiously applies Vaseline under her eyes to combat crow’s feet.
3. Jessica Biel
It’s never too early to start your anti-aging practices – at 33, Jessica Biel loves the IMEDEEN’s Time Perfection, a skincare tablet packed with ingredients that combats visible signs of aging like dryness, wrinkles, fine lines and sun damage.
4. Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow, 43, swears by oil pulling, an ancient technique that involves swishing coconut oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes or so daily, thus supposedly improving oral health and clearing up your skin by drawing out toxins in your body.
Effective? Gwyneth is testament to that.
5. Demi Moore
Demi Moore might be 53, but her skin isn’t giving any of that away. She cites the cayenne pepper cleanse – a concoction of lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup. Kind of like a juice cleanse, except it sounds a lot better than “celery and spinach juice”.
6. Naomi Campbell
At 45, Naomi Campbell still flaunts the perennially glowing skin of a goddess.
As much as it may seem like it, she’s no sorcerer – her secret to ageless beauty is not least thanks to a simple cup of warm water with lime juice first thing in the morning.
Of course we had to include Queen B in this list – just look at her flawless, ageless beauty even at 34!
Her tip: use eye cream all over your face. Meant for the more delicate undereye area, the particles are smaller for easier absorption and the ingredients are more active.
8. Catherine Zeta Jones
Let’s not neglect your body, either – Catherine Zeta Jones, 47, rubs a mixture of salt and honey all over her body to exfoliate and moisturize.
9. Halle Berry
So you’re telling me Halle Berry is fourty-nine?
If you’re harbouring a gnawing suspicion that Halle Berry’s found the elusive fountain of youth that the rest of us aren’t in the loop about, you’re not alone. Or perhaps it’s just her habit of rubbing pure vitamin C on her face.
10. Lisa Ling
American journalist and TV presenter Lisa Ling is 42, but she credits her youthful , tight skin to Asian beauty secrets – when applying skincare, she pats her skin in an upward direction to avoid pulling her skin down, which can cause premature skin sagging.
