Wrinkles and sagging skin just seem like a natural part of your life, but they don't have to be.
The world's oldest working model has finally shared some of her beauty tips that keep her looking young. The best part is that it won't break the bank! On any given day, you're bombarded with hundreds of advertisements that promise you astonishing anti-aging results, but so far they've all seemed to have fallen short on that promise.
Is it because these products are promoted using models who are still in their youth or fully caked in makeup? Perhaps.
Honestly, the best advice you can get is from people around your age who have been following tried-and-tested beauty methods that have proven to keep them looking years younger than they actually are.
86-year-old American model Carmen Dell'Orefice is just the woman you need to hear from.
Carmen began her fashion career more than 70 years ago, appearing in popular magazines like Vogue, and has been on runway shows for luxury brands like Louis Vuitton.
But she's not like many models who retire once they reach their 40s or 50s. Why would she need to do that anyway? She's more popular now than she ever was!
"I have had more magazine covers in the last 25 years than I have in my whole elongated career."
So what's her secret? Get ready to take some notes!
Her skin still possesses that radiance and elasticity thanks to her simple skincare routine. She says the best thing for one's skin is to stay moisturized, and her favorite skincare product is a moisturizing balm.
She also doesn't wear makeup often, it's only for a photoshoot or a public event.
What's reassuring is that Carmen is not an advocate of strict diets, even though she is a fashion model.
"I eat to my appetite and don't count calories. I want to enjoy food passionately," she says.
She drinks water with lemon every morning, and eats probiotic yogurt often.
Her final tip for staying young and healthy is walking. The model enjoys long walks and spending time outdoors with her friends.
