25 Latinas Defying The Aging Process
Yes, Latinas are often blessed with skin that seems to age at a glacial pace. Wrinkles just have no place on these faces, but for some they are nowhere to be seen. Granted, celebs have access to the best plastic surgeons, Botox and Lord knows what other rich people anti-aging secrets. Still, you can’t deny the results. And these 25 Latinas are the proof!
1. Luna Lauren Velez
The 53-year-old TV and film actress has appeared on tons of red carpets, and always looks radiance from head-to-toe. She sticks to her favorite brands of beauty products, like Bobbi Brown foundation, to keep her skin as lovely as it is.
2. Gloria Estefan
Guys, guess how old Gloria Estefan is. No, really, guess. Did you guess 60? Because that would be the correct answer and you are currently blown away right now. How! Look at her! Perhaps it’s the dewy Miami weather that keeps her skin hydrated. If so, :moves immediately:
3. Sofia Vergara
Since she made her mark on “Modern Family,” Sofia has become the definition of a MILF. She’s 45, but really with her sassy attitude, one-liners, ripped bod and radiant skin, the 45-year-old proves she’ll one day be a GILF.
4. Ilia Calderon
The Univision anchor has broken barriers in her career, and looked amazing every step of the way. Perhaps being informed on current events is good for the complexion, or perhaps she has a few secrets in her medicine cabinet. Whatever it is, it’s working for the 45-year-old.
5. Constance Marie
The woman who once played J.Lo’s mother and daughter is still as ageless as ever, even at 52. How has she maintained such great skin over the years? She attributes it to her healthy lifestyle, eating vegetarian and taking care of herself from the inside out. It’s working, girl!
6. Salma Hayek
At 51 years old, Salma proves that aging can be done totally flawlessly! And her go-to skin care routine is totally accessible to anyone who shops at Marshalls. The actress keeps it natural when it comes to her skin. One of the mainstays of her beauty routine is spritzing her face with rose water.
7. Daisy Fuentes
Back in her MTV days, Daisy was always the fun girl with the great face. And really, nothing has changed. The 53-year-old (Can you believe that???) still looks radiant, and her nighttime cleansing routine is the thing she has to thank for it.
8. Jessica Alba
At 36, the actress and mama of three has managed to keep a fresh face. It might have something to do with her commitment to organic products found in her Honest Co. Or it might just be that she has insanely good genes. Whatever it is, she regularly posts makeup-free selfies and looks flawless.
9. Ana Ortiz
The actress and singer makes 47 look incredible! While she once starred on “Ugly Betty” there’s not a damn thing looking bad about her. Seriously, what is in the water at her house?
10. Andrea Navedo
She plays a total MILF on “Jane the Virgin,” and it’s really no different in real life. At 40, Andrea makes wellness a major part of her daily routine. That make have had a great effect on her complexion because her face just glows.
11. Judy Reyes
Are you ready for this mind blowing information? Judy Reyes. Is. 50. There are zero wrinkles on her face! That’s insane. It might have something to do with her vampire-like skin routine. Reyes avoids the sun at all costs, using sunscreens, hats, and anything else to block the harmful rays. She and Gina Torres should hang!
12. Mariah Carey
She tries to hide her age at all costs, but the 47-year-old diva is doing a much better job doing so on her face. While one could assume Mariah bathes in almond milk every night, or has water from Iceland shipped to her home and uses it as toner, Mimi keeps it pretty chill. She keeps the makeup to a minimum, which makes a big difference.
13. Rosie Perez
From the time she went down that Soul Train line, working her moves all the way to “In Living Color,” Rosie has looked completely fierce and fresh. And at 53, it’s amazing to see she’s still holding it down, giving every Latina out there hope that they can age gracefully.
14. Gina Torres
At 48, Gina Torres has got some of the most enviable skin in Hollywood. She takes a cue from what many dermatologists have told us for years: avoid too much sun exposure. The sun is warm and lovely, but it also is not great for your skin.
15. Roselyn Sanchez
Roselyn makes 44 look incredible, doesn’t she? Her skin is absolute perfection, and it’s all thanks to regular facials done with her “Devious Maids” co-stars. Girl time is vital to any woman, and probably totally helps your pores.
16. Nina Garcia
Nina Garcia epitomizes effortless cool, and the 50-year-old doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. When it comes to maintaining her firm, glowing look, she sticks to creams that keep her skin completely quenched. Chanel Sublimage is especially a favorite.
17. Marilyn Milian
The 56-year-old TV judge may hand down some tough verdicts when she’s wearing her robes, but when they come off she stays looking classy and vibrant. If judging people is good for the skin, and by the evidence presented by Marilyn it’s easy to believe that, then hopefully pettiness does too.
18. Eva Longoria Baston
The 42-year-old actress hasn’t aged a day in 20 years. What’s her secret? Pretty simple: good skin care. Longoria Baston ensures she washes, exfoliates, and moisturizes, but her secret is not overdoing it on the makeup and powder. Too much powder shows fine lines off. Good to know!
Maybe it’s the pink hair she just debuted, or maybe it’s her girlish spirit, but at 46, Thalia has managed to stay looking fresh over the years. It’s very likely she can thank her own skin line for her perfect complexion.
20. Eva Mendes
Ready to have your mind completely blown? Eva Mendes is actually 43 years old. Like, how is that even possible? It’s easy to assume that she just stopped aging at 28, but alas she is a mortal being like everyone else. Tinted moisturizer is always in her makeup bag, which could account for her skin always looking smooth and glowing.
21. Paulina Rubio
La Chica Dorada is not so much a chica anymore. She’s 46, and has learned a few lessons about proper skin care to maintain a youthful glow. After spending years tanning, the singer developed sun spots that she’s worked to lose. Staying out of the sun has been a major step in keeping her glow.
22. Zoe Saldana
While she hasn’t cracked into the 40-something club, Zoe isn’t too far off at 39 years old. But you would never, ever think it! She looks exactly the same as she did when she twirled in “Center Stage” back in the day. The Dominicana’s secret: coconuts. Eating them, drinking their milks, and moisturizing with its olis, butter and milk on her skin.
23. Soledad O’Brien
The award-winning CNN anchor also has award-winning skin. Well, there wasn’t a trophy handed to her but there should be because the 51-year-old keeps a taut and fresh face. Might be those 5:30 a.m. wake ups followed by a run that’s part of her daily routine.
24. Jennifer Lopez
So, J. Lo is 48. Forty-freaking-eight?!! How is that possible? Ahh yes, good genes, great skin care, and a strict regime of no alcohol, caffeine, or cigarettes. Her discipline isn’t just in the studio or the stage. It’s in the way she cares for herself, and it shows.
25. Penelope Cruz
In her 43 years on Earth, the Oscar-winner has crushed it on screen, playing complicated women with depth and sincerity. That must have had a good effect on her complexion because she hasn’t aged since her film debut at 16 years old. She’s a forever babe!
