Here's how Michelle Pfeiffer avoids 'toxins' that would otherwise age her
The actress looks stunning at 64, so it's worth learning her beauty secrets to age gracefully.
Actress Michelle Pfeiffer's latest project is to play Betty Ford, who has struggled with alcoholism and substance abuse. Unlike the character she plays, Michelle fortunately leads a balanced lifestyle without such bad habits. According to Express, she is a big fan of working out at the gym, running on the treadmill, brisk walking, and nature walks.
The actress has been on a vegan diet for several years now.
“I love the vegan diet. This includes choosing healthier foods and thus avoiding too many toxins that can age your skin and body. I noticed a difference in my skin shortly after I went vegan,” the actress said.
She recently switched to a paleo diet. The Paleo Diet, developed by Dr. Lauren Cordain, consists of: vegetables, fruits, lean meats, fish, eggs, nuts, and seeds.
It is considered an anti-inflammatory diet, so the Paleo diet can help minimize the risk of disease.
In addition, it can boost immunity, support body muscles, strengthen bones, and reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer.
While Michelle is now taking care of herself by working on her body with exercise and eating well, that wasn't the case before.
"I haven't always been healthy," she told Ladies Home magazine. “When I was 20, I smoked two packs of cigarettes a day. I lived at Marlboro Lights and Coca-Cola." This is the period when Michelle appeared in Splendor in the Grass (1981), Grease 2 (1982) and Scarface (1983).
Michelle has been nominated for three Oscars throughout her career. She ALSO won the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards and the Berlin International Film Festival Award.
Michelle is living proof that, despite having unhealthy habits in your youth, at some point in your life, you can choose to be healthy, and it's much better than continuing to have bad habits.
Stopping unhealthy lifestyles even later in life can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer, extending life.
