For­ever young?

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Ageing With Attitude -

Ac­tress Andie McDow­ell caused a stir on the red car­pet at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val last week, with many com­ment­ing on so­cial me­dia that she looked far younger than her 59 years. How­ever, the ac­tress re­cently told W mag­a­zine that it can be hard for older women to find beauty in a so­ci­ety that “glo­ri­fies” youth. “Time is pre­cious and can­not be wasted, and there are so many as­pects of ma­tu­rity that are out­ra­geously gor­geous. Don’t look back, un­less it is to see how far you’ve come,” she said. She added that she prefers to stay fit by ex­er­cis­ing out­side. “I do go to the gym, be­cause I can push my­self hard and get a fast sweat, but hik­ing does more for you than just ex­er­cise — your cor­ti­sol lev­els are bal­anced by walk­ing in na­ture.”
