While we’ve got to grips with the fact that we are approaching the next decade of our lives, we like to make the most of these years. We take advantage of the ‘Teeny Tens’, the ‘Terrible Twenties’, the ‘Flirty Thirties’, and the ‘Naughty Forties’. Of course, as the years go on you try to have as much fun as you possibly can. As soon as you reach the forty mark, there are plenty of milestones to enjoy. You may make memories for life with your friends, you might create the perfect career for yourself, you could find yourself a man or a woman to spend the rest of your days with, or you might perhaps buy yourself a house. Because you spend so much of your time enjoying what the world has to offer, you might forget to look after your health. You might treat yourself a little too often, and you might just use your gym card to cut yourself another slice of cake when all of your knives are dirty.
Well, these celebs are here to prove that you can still be ultra fit in your 40s if you just know how! The celebrity world is all about keeping up with appearances, but ultimately the success of an actress or a singer is decided by their talent. They might be the most beautiful woman on the planet, but if they can’t sing a lick they definitely won’t go far in the world of music! Nevertheless, as the women of Hollywood get older, they like to take care of themselves – especially with so much younger competition on their hands. They try to backtrack the signs of aging with cosmetic surgery and weird and wonderful ways of making them look young again. Don’t believe us? Well, over the years many celebs have found themselves trying anything to get rid of their wrinkles and tighten up their bodies.
Actresses such as Cate Blanchett have tried out the controversial Hollywood EGF facial, which we’ll just let you Google in your own time. In the past, Gwyneth Paltrow has resorted to apitherapy to get rid of scarring and inflammation of her skin – a process which involves being stung by countless bees all at once. The supermodel and actress Miranda Kerr has stated that her youthful looks are the result of having a leech facial, and we can guess that you know what’s that all about. Yet, even more bizarrely, Kim Kardashian has previously undergone a vampire facial, which resulted in her being smothered in her own blood to promote healthy skin cells. It’s all a bit much, isn’t it? Yet, when they’re not fussing about with these anti-aging techniques, they’re focusing on keeping their bodies fit and healthy in much simpler terms.
While many of us struggle to get up to go to the gym in the morning, it seems like a healthy lifestyle is part of a celebrity’s job requirement. Supermodels need to keep their bodies tight and toned, actresses often need to put on or lose weight for a brand new role, and singers need to ensure they are fit enough to put on hour-long shows during a tour. Of course, this often gets harder over time, which means celebs over 40 are now putting in more effort to ensure that they are ultra fit every single day.
