They say 40 is the new 30. Whatever it is, all of these women look amazing and some of them are well past 40. Forget the fountain of youth, these ladies have found an entire sea. Linda Evangelista (43), Cindy Crawford(42), Elle MacPherson (44), Diane Lane (46), Christie Brinkley (54) and most recently Madonna who just turned 53, to name a few. Here are some tips that we learned from these fabulous ladies on how to be hot over 40, because let’s face it, they set a pretty good anti-aging example.
Positive Self Image
Having confidence in yourself at any age is a key part in looking your best. Make eye contact, smile and (yes, just like mom used to say) stand up straight. Posture and the way you carry yourself can make or break your overall presentation. Remain positive in your outlook about aging. Your good energy will be sure to attract others.
Plenty of Exercise
Keep your workouts interesting so you don’t get bored and want to quit. Christie Brinkley once told People magazine she keeps her workouts interesting by exercising with Dance Dance Revolution. Elle Macpherson adds biking and surfing to regular gym sessions and Marisa Tomei likes to mix up her cardio with hula hooping and dancing.
Elle Macpherson swears by fish oil and steers clear of cigarettes and alcohol. Christie Brinkley eats only organic foods, which are rich in minerals and vitamins. Madonna has made it no secret that what she cuts out of her diet is as important as what she allows in. No processed food, caffeine or dairy passes the Material Girl’s lips, but she does consume plenty of spring water, lean protein, grains, organic fruit and veggies every day.
Skin Care and Cosmetic Enhancements
Signs of aging start to show as less collagen is produced and skin loses its elasticity, so firming and anti-aging ingredients become vital allies. These ladies know that a great face starts with a great base. It’s obvious that they have taken precautions throughout the years, and incorporated basic skin care steps like exfoliating, moisturizing and using sunscreen on a regular basis.
Let’s not fool ourselves, fact is, many of these women have had some help with Cosmetic Enhancements, such as Botox injections, collagen and vitamin injections, etc. Enhancements like these, if done correctly and in moderation, can take years off and keep your skin looking vibrant, healthy and wrinkle-free.
