We Can’t Believe Michelle Pfeiffer Is Turning 65, and She Shares the Secrets to Her Youthful Look

year ago

Known for her incredible acting skills and her youthful appearance that seems to defy the laws of time, Michelle Pfeiffer manages to maintain her flawless skin for years. The actress had always been passionate about health and fitness, and she believes the secrets behind her youthful appearance are her strict exercise regimen and healthy diet.

She sticks to the same products for years.

While it might be fun to try new skincare products, there are many benefits to using a single line of products, because the manufacturers are probably testing them together. Pfeiffer takes the cosmetic ingredients seriously, and once she found the products that work for her skin she doesn’t see the reason to change them. “I haven’t changed what I use on my skin in over ten years. I have such reactive skin that if I find something that performs and agrees with me, I stick with it,” she shared.

She follows a simple skincare routine.

You might be thinking that following a complicated beauty routine will do wonders for your skin, but turns out, less is more when it comes to skincare. Apart from being time-consuming, multistep skincare systems can cause irritation and breakouts. Pfeiffer revealed she has an easy skincare routine that gets her skin refreshed. “I cleanse, I moisturize—that’s it,” she said.

She isn’t afraid of aging.

Being in the spotlight puts a lot of pressure on women when it comes to aging, but the Stardust actress has learned to appreciate every wrinkle on her face.

“The older I’ve gotten, the easier it’s become. You reach a threshold where you’re fine with looking good for your age instead of looking young for your age, and I’ve crossed it. Would I like to look the way I did in my early 30s? You bet, but that’s not going to happen, and I don’t feel the same pressure I once did to do so. It’s quite a relief, honestly,” she shared.

She’s passionate about clean beauty.

The skin is the largest organ of the body, and it absorbs all the harmful ingredients the products you are using might contain. After the birth of her kids, Pfeiffer became more conscious about her skincare products, and she carefully reads the labels before buying a new lotion or moisturizer.

“It started with the birth of my children 27 years ago. I started looking at the world through their eyes, and like all new mothers wanting to protect them. I became more and more aware of the products we were consuming and putting on our bodies,” she said.

She follows a plant-based diet.

From helping you to lose weight to keeping your heart healthy, vegan diets have lots of benefits. Pfeiffer believes eating vegan is one of the secrets behind her youthful look.

“Eating a vegan diet — it’s just so much healthier — and you avoid a lot of toxins that could age your skin and your body. I really noticed a difference in my skin not too long after switching to fully vegan. And I needed to eat fruits and vegetables to stay lean,” she said. “The older I’ve gotten, the more it’s occurred to me that I’m doing it in order to live longer, though the vanity component will always be there,” she added.
