Six beautiful celebrities over 50 and how you can achieve similar results

Madonna needs no introduction. She has maintained her beautiful face and body throughout the years.
3. Annette Bening
Annette Bening is a four-time Oscar Nominee for movies such as American Beauty. She has clear and ‘energetic’ skin that is bright and beautiful.
4. Oprah Winfrey
Arguably one of the most powerful women in the world, Oprah has beautiful skin with an even texture. She has aged gracefully.
5. Julianne Moore
Julianne Moore’s most notable feature is her beautiful cheekbones and eyes. Her skin has been kept a beautiful fair shade with a smooth texture.
6. Michelle Pfeiffer
Michelle Pfeiffer has cat-like eyes which are prone to wrinkling as they age. She has prevented and treated these lines with treatments over the years.
Now these beautiful starlets may not admit it to the press, but there is no denying that they have impossibly clear and wrinkle-free skin for their age. This ‘impossible’ appearance can indeed be achieved with a combination of cosmetic treatments, ranging from surgical to non-surgical. One of the most affordable anti-ageing options are Botolunium Toxin A injections which are preventive injections that decrease muscle movement and therefore decrease the number of wrinkles caused by this type of movement.
Before we take a look at other anti-ageing treatments, let us first evaluate what causes the signs of ageing:
- Muscle movement
- Sun damage
- Other extrinsic damage (pollution, diet)
- Habits (smoking)
All of these factors contribute to wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and general dullness that is common with age. In order to decrease your risk of developing age problems due to these factors it’s important to:
- Use sunblock and a hat wherever possible (including during everyday activites)
- Avoid squinting and contorting facial features
- Eat a diet rich in anti-oxidants and nutrients
- Avoid eating sugar and an excess intake of dairy (which can cause respiratory problems)
As you get older (40 and above) you will also most likley desire cosmetic treatment including laser therapy, fillers and anti-wrinkle injections in order to maintain your appearance as and even make you look younger. Many women and men also choose to have surgical procedures to tighten skin that has become loose with age. This is because the collagen fibres which keep the skin tight and the interior tissue connected loses its effectiveness as we age.
What’s the best way to get rid of wrinkles?
If you have wrinkles that are already apparent then the best non-surgical procedure for you will either be a laser treatment or dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are a perfect treatment for:
- Crow’s feet
- Lines under the eyes
- Scowl lines (in between the brows)
- Smile lines
- Fine lines or rippled wrinkles that can cover the cheeks and body

It’s about looking naturally beautiful, not ‘fake’
As you get older it’s not about getting rid of every small wrinkle and line as this can cause you to look ‘fake’. It’s important that you still have the ability to show emotion and express yourself, which means creating some small lines. However, your skin texture, tone and the appearance of wrinkles can be drastically improved so that you can look years younger than you actually are, while still ageing elegantly.
