Jennifer Aniston Says This Is How She Maintains Her Timeless, Flawless Body


As a woman in my 20s who can barely survive the climb to my fifth-floor, walk-up apartment, Jennifer Aniston's eternal youth amazes me on a small-child-seeing-sleight-of-hand-for-the-very-first-time level.

The actress posed for a stunning photo shoot, complete with avian accessories, in April's issue of Harper's Bazaar and shared some insight on how #SelfCare led her to feel better in her 40s than she did in previous decades.

When it comes to food, Aniston said she loves guacamole and margaritas, but avoids sugar and tries to steer toward salads with protein or chicken burgers wrapped in lettuce. An active lifestyle and a straightforward, healthy diet free of fad techniques helped her reach a sweet spot at 47.

She explained,

The secret to Aniston's agelessness doesn't lie merely in diet and exercise. The notion of #SelfCare extends to her career moves as well.

She said,

We're not all in the position to ease up on our work schedules, but incorporating the Jennifer Aniston Principles of Eternal Youth into our own day-to-day lives in small doses could help us all feel a little happier and healthier.
