Jennifer Aniston has been a beauty icon ever since she burst onto our screens as Rachel on Friends. The beautiful actress is known for her radiant, youthful complexion, and now the 47-year-old has delighted fans by spilling some of her skincare secrets.
The We're The Millers star spoke candidly about her anti-ageing tricks, and admitted that she prefers to avoid treatments such as Botox. "Why would you want to atrophy muscles anyway?" she told InStyle. "If you don't work out, eventually everything drops."
Jennifer, who is currently a brand ambassador for Aveeno, revealed that she prefers to keep her skin looking smooth and supple by turning to microcurrent facials, which includes two pads delivering tiny electrical impulses to the face, stimulating the muscles. "It's like a little workout for your face," she explained.
Describing her anti-ageing tips as "water, sleep and sunscreen", the actress explained that she follows a "less is more" approach when it comes to beauty, especially make-up.
"I had a boyfriend who always said I looked better without make-up," she confessed. "It took me a while to feel comfortable enough to remove that armour, but I eventually realised he was right."
Jennifer recently spoke up about body shaming, penning a powerful essay for the Huffington Post in which she addressed the "absurd and disturbing" scrutiny faced by women who are exposed to tabloid media.
"For the record, I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up," wrote Jennifer in an essay titled For The Record. "I'm fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of 'journalism', the 'First Amendment' and 'celebrity news'."
She continued: "Every day my husband and I are harassed by dozens of aggressive photographers staked outside our house who will go to shocking lengths to obtain any kind of photo. What I want to focus on is the bigger picture of what this insane tabloid ritual represents to all of us.
"The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing. The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty."
