Keeping looks up to par after a certain age can become a challenge. Careers become hectic, children and marriages can contribute to stress, and metabolism slows down — all of which can lead to rapid physical aging. But even with the challenges women face as time goes on, many ladies manage to slow major physical signs of aging. Some may spend long hours in the gym, others may use facial treatments, and for some, longlasting youthful looks just come natural. Whatever the secret to youth may be for some women, it’s evident that some of our favorite female celebrities have found it, and they are oftentimes some of our biggest inspirations for preserving our pretty.

We’ve put together a list of celebrity women of a mature age (over 45) who continue to look just as vibrant and beautiful as they did in the beginning of their careers.

        She’s biracial. Surprised me to because most of her roles have been portraying white(ish) characters. I learned this back in the day when she starred in Devil in a Blue Dress opposite Denzel.

    black people do age. we just age at a slower rate due to the melanin in our skin. our melanin blocks ultraviolet wavelengths. it’s like a natural sunscreen. Because of this we age 10 years slower then white people. but we all still need to wear sunscreen. My post explains how this works
