While there are plenty of celebrities in Hollywood who are running to the plastic surgeon as soon as they spot a wrinkle, there are also many, many admirable women who have chosen to approach aging gracefully and naturally. Instead of hunting for your favorite celebrities' weight-loss secrets, embracing your natural beauty will not only save you your precious time and sanity but also reserve your hard-earned money for more important things like traveling, spending time with your grandkids or treating yourself every now and then.
So the next time you spot a wrinkle on your forehead or a gray hair or two at your temple, smile because it (and you) are beautiful! And when your birthday rolls around this year, instead of dreading all the candles on your cake, welcome them with open arms.
*These leading ladies may all have hit their 50th year, but just one look and you'd never guess. Surely they're proof that you just get better with age. *
