Baywatch Star Donna D’Errico, 54, Has Barely Aged a Day Since the 1990s, and She Shares the Secrets of Her Youth With Us

There is so much advice out there from dermatologists for people who want to look younger as long as possible. From drinking more water to sleeping on a silk pillowcase, all of these recommendations could come to the rescue for those who want to refresh their body and looks without surgery. American actress Donna D’Errico might have discovered some really cool secrets of eternal youth, as she seems to not be aging at all.

Here at Bright Side, we do love both the idea of aging gracefully, embracing and loving every single wrinkle, and aging youthfully, keeping that fresh look for as long as possible. We’d love for you to find out how Donna manages to follow both of them.

Donna’s career has always been related to beauty in all forms.

Donna’s debut in cinema was when she had a starring role on the television series Baywatch. She appeared on the show from 1996 to 1998 and her character’s name was Donna Marco. For a time, she owned a day spa in California and even had a limousine company in Las Vegas. This way or that, beauty has always surrounded this incredible actress.

Being in the spotlight, D’Errico survived a real fall in mid-2012, when she climbed Mount Ararat and suffered injuries from a fall near the end of the climb. But even this did not stop her from continuing her career.

The actress has an outstanding opinion on beauty.

The actress really loves everyone’s comments about her youthful looks. But she confessed that sometimes it can be reductive. She is famous for her brave statements against ageism in any of its forms. “It doesn’t feel nice to hear somebody say, ’You look great for your age’ or ’You still look amazing,’” says Donna in her interview. “Why not just say, ’Wow, you look amazing,’ and just move on?”

Donna sincerely thinks that beauty doesn’t have anything to do with age or any other stereotypes. She says, “I think critiquing women based on their age is unfair. Men don’t face the same scrutiny, and I don’t think they would like that either. But I know it’s not going to go away because it’s part of our culture.”

Donna bravely responds to all naysayers on her Instagram.

Summer is meant for sun, sand, and swimsuits. However, Donna once got a lot of criticism after donning a swimwear look for the 4th of July.

Some people commented she was “too old” to be rocking a bikini. And Donna brilliantly responded to them with another bikini photo and a powerful caption. She wrote, “Let me tell you something that might surprise you. I can actually wear and do literally whatever I want. On that note, here is me in a bikini squatting on a coffee table.”

The actress shared the secret to her youthful glow in an interview.

While being asked about special tricks that she uses to stay young, Donna mentions her special diet. She went vegan and admitted the effects of clearer skin, better digestion, and better sleep. She also says she “stopped baking in the sun.” She used to love tanning, but now she lets herself get a little pale, and instead of sun tanning she now uses a self-tanner or a tinted moisturizer.

Donna is sure that there’s no magic cosmetic product that’ll fix everything. When it comes to self-care products, she is very scrupulous. “I read up on everything I can because everyone swears that the next new thing works. I think we’re all guilty of falling into that. But I want to take care of myself as much as possible. I just think we shouldn’t be pressured into trying every single product that has all these claims. Use what truly works for your skin and keep it simple.”

Who is the epitome of youth for you personally? What advice do you follow to look younger and fresher?
