Jennifer Aniston reveals her $15 anti-ageing hack
Since her days as Rachel Green on Friends, Jennifer Aniston has been known for her good looks. Certainly, whether she's coining the iconic "Rachel" or making yet another sartorial crime - courtesy of the 90's - one thing's for sure, people are always going to try to imitate her. In recent years, however, people have been paying more attention to how the 49-year-old stays looking so youthful.
Yes, Jennifer Aniston is one of the few celebrities that doesn't seem to have aged since her heyday in the 90's, and her fans are always trying to find out what gym classes she's attending or facials she's getting to keep her looking so glowy and toned. Luckily for them, the actress has disclosed the $15 secret she uses to combat the signs of ageing.
Speaking to Well and Good about her morning routine, Aniston revealed that she keeps things very simple when it comes to skincare - washing her face with soap and water and applying a day cream with SPF.
However, this isn't responsible for her youthful glow. Apparently, Aniston's secret lies in what she drinks for breakfast. "There’s a collagen peptide that I’ve been loving," she said, explaining that she adds a collagen supplement to her morning smoothie.
"I’ve been seeing a difference," she continued. "My nails are stronger and there’s a healthier… how do you explain it? A glow. It’s sort of that working from the inside-out thing."
And while you'd think that Aniston's supplements would be priced for an A-lister, think again. The star's choice of supplement, Vital Proteins, are surprisingly inexpensive, starting at just $15 (£11).
However, Aniston's anti-ageing regime isn't just limited to collagen supplements. The Friends actress also swears by yoga and transcendental meditation, but has previously insisted that she wouldn't go near cosmetic procedures.
In an interview with makeup mogul, Bobbi Brown, Aniston opened up about the pressure on women in Hollywood to look "youthful".
"I think what I have been witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves," she stated. "I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because I am not injecting s*** into my face. I see them and my heart breaks. I think, 'Oh god if you only know how much older you look'. They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won’t let themselves just age."
Aniston recently split from her husband of two years, actor Justin Theroux. The pair, who had been together for a total of seven years, met on the set of Tropic Thunder, and they wed two and half years ago in a "surprise" ceremony.
In a statement to The Associated Press, the pair announced that the decision to separate was "mutual" and "lovingly made at the end of last year".
"We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship. Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly. Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else’s fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another," Aniston and Theroux stated.
Well, it's clear that Jennifer Aniston is putting herself first since her split from Justin Theroux, and good on her - she looks great!
