Celebrities seem to have all the luck: from the fame and fortune to the way they look. And while age may be nothing but a number, it’s still a little baffling that there are some stars who are seemingly forever young. While some of us are glaring at the greys, wrinkles and laugh lines, these celebs don’t have those problems. Try not to be too jealous and simply admire from afar.
J.Lo may be turning 50 in a few months, but you'd never know it — unless you grab your calculator and realize she's been around since the early '90s, dancing like a queen on In Living Color. She works out a lot — based on the routines she posts on Instagram — but likes to eat. She and fiancé A-Rod now do that 10-day, no-carb, no-sugar challenge, take five days off, then do it all over again. Sure, whatever floats your boat.
What other celebrities got engaged in 2019?
It almost doesn't seem possible that Rudd looks exactly the same as he did when he filmed Clueless. His secret to looking so youthful isn't really a secret: this almost 50-year-old is all about sunscreen.
There aren't many 60-year-olds who post bikini shots on Instagram, but Bassett isn't your average 60-year-old. Hell, women half her age would kill to look like her. While she works out (but isn't obsessive about it), she told Porter that it's all about what she eats. "I'm regimented and rigorous about what I’m eating," she explained. "Diet is 85% of the whole thing for me."

Pharrell, who's 45, looks as though he's never aged a day. Literally. And it's all because he exfoliates "like a madman." And not just any madman: a "narcissistic" one. "When you exfoliate and you drink a lot of water, that does good for you," he explained to Dazed. "To me, the key is just exfoliating, like a monster. There's a lot of dead skin. All the time." Excuse us while we go scrub like monsters.
Roberts, 51, relies on mascara to freshen up her look. Or, in her words, "it just makes you look like you've had a good nap." But, for the most part, a little moisturizer and lip balm goes a long way. And baking soda, which she brushes her teeth with. She has her grandfather to thank for that tip.
Save the baking soda for your teeth, not your face.
The 46-year-old new mom stays young by eating healthy (loads of veggies, proteins, fish and no carbs, according to her personal chef) as well as strength and cardio work. If she were to bust out a cheer in her East Compton Clovers outfit from Bring It On, we wouldn't know if it was then or now.
Genetics are obviously a factor, but earlier this year, Berry shared her secret to looking the way she looks. A face mask. Specifically, Olga Lorencin Ageless Facial in a Box. If that's what's keeping the 52-year-old's skin looking the way it looks, we are all over it. Olga Lorencin, you can have all our money.
Do you think these stars have had cosmetic surgery?
There are the odd days where Naomi knocks out 100 burpees (or attempts to, at least), but Watts is mostly all about yoga and meditation and balancing those workouts with a healthy diet. "I'm naturally drawn to greens and often whizz up a green juice for breakfast," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I'll throw in kale, walnuts, yogurt and pineapple into my Vitamix." Whatever gets the 50-year-old through the day.
He looks just as Adonis-like as when he first debuted on The Young and the Restless all those years ago. Now, at 48, he's bulked up for his role on S.W.A.T. and balances that with a high-protein diet.
The 54-year-old's weapon of choice? A GloPulse, which, according to Bullock's facialist, delivers a circuit on your skin to help mask ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin — thus making a woman extra glow-y. Yes, please.
The 46-year-old often goes au natural, is a big fan of detoxes and cleanses and is a big yogi, so it's no wonder she still looks how she did two decades ago.
Other stars who embrace their natural beauty.
Heart disease runs in her family, so King has cut out dairy and goes on hikes, lifts weights and takes a kickboxing class to prevent the presumed inevitable. But add that with her beauty routine and it's no wonder she looks decades younger than her 48 years.
It doesn't seem possible, but Lowe looks even better now than when he was part of the Brat Pack — and that was over three decades ago! He's 55 now and has his own skincare line since men of all ages want skin like his.
The 47-year-old was out of the spotlight for several years, but now that the Stranger Things star is back, people want to know how she hasn't aged. And her routine is as basic as it gets. She wears sunscreen all the time and teeters between a lip balm or a lipstick. And her favourite beauty trick is putting on lipstick, patting her lips and using the leftovers on her cheeks. Sold!
Klum keeps her routine simple: she drinks a ton of water, follows the 80/20 diet (in which you eat healthy 80 per cent of the time and indulge for the other 20) and works out four times a week. She makes 45 look good. And some false lashes never hurt.
The 48-year-old's three grooming secrets? Confidence, a bright smile and a healthy scalp (and if you have hair that's starting to go, be cool with letting it go). Check, check, check!
Hayek's grandmother told the New York Times that her grandmother advised her to never cleanse her skin in the morning, only at night and clearly that beauty tip has worked for the 52-year-old Salma.

Jada Pinkett Smith
If you want abs like Jada, her killer workout might be for you. But while the 47-year-old works at looking good, all you have to do is look at her mom to see that genes also play a part. Willow, you lucky girl.
