So its not cloning/replacing and surgery, right....
"EXCLUSIVE: 'It's a constant battle trying to fight that clock'... Courteney Cox, 49, reveals 'sleep and water' are her secrets to youth as she stars in new Pantene ad
She is just one year away from her half century. But, as these photos from her glossy new beauty campaign prove, Courteney Cox is defying the ageing process.
The 49-year-old, who found fame as Monica Geller on cult show Friends, showed off shiny locks and radiant skin as she posed for her debut shoot for haircare brand Pantene.
And while she may be able to afford the most luxurious products, the actress has revealed the cheap and simple secrets to youth as nothing more than sleep and water.
Speaking about growing old, she said: 'It's a constant daily vicious battle trying to fight that clock.
'I think that people are always looking for something that is going to make them feel better about themselves as they age, and we have tons of creams that are out there.
'I'm all about trying to find the next beauty secret. I really do spend a lot of time trying products, I'm crazy for it.
'But I would say the most important thing to do to keep up with time would be drink a boat load of water and sleep is imperative.'
She did, however, reveal that she has struggled with keeping her hair looking youthful and glossy over the years.
'One day I was on the set of my show and my hairdresser said: "Your hair is different, what are you using? I can't even get the comb through it" and I just said, "I'm using the same thing I've been using forever.
'I thought it was really strange and started wondering if it was hormones.
'I wasn't aware that my hair was ageing but things were changing, it was getting duller, drier, thinner and more brittle,' she said.
As the new face of Pantene's Expert Collection Age Defy Range, Courteney naturally says she is a huge fan.
She said: 'There's so many things you can read about. There's books about exercise and staying young and fit - but no one ever talks about how to help your hair. I swear by Pantene's Age Defy range.
'The beauty secrets that are so important for me to pass on to my daughter now are to protect your skin from the sun, moisturise your skin and hair, and drink a lot of water,' she added."
'I looked horrible': Courteney Cox expresses regret over chasing youth with cosmetic procedures as she tells Bear Grylls 'getting older is not easy'
It's been well documented that Friends icon Courteney Cox is set to star TV show, Running Wild With Bear Grylls. But in a new video clip, the 52-year-old talks about her struggle to keep up with the pressures of being a woman in the industry. Sitting on a mountainside, she confessed: 'Getting older is not the easiest thing. But I have learned lessons.
Courteney Cox is a rule breaker, at least when it comes to the outdated beauty guidelines commonly held among women of a certain age. At 53, she is often seen rockin’ a two-piece bathing suit, making it clear that to this iconic Friend, age is just a number. “I feel better than I’ve ever felt,” says the Alabama native, though she does admit that aging in the spotlight hasn’t always been easy. “Hollywood makes it hard; this business makes it harder. I grew up thinking appearance was the most important thing. That as long as I looked OK, I would be OK, which got me into trouble.” Courteney also reveals that chasing the fountain of youth has its consequences, and that the road to acceptance wasn’t easy. In a town where it’s taboo to admit you’ve done anything more to yourself than get a good night’s sleep or take an extended vacation, it’s refreshing to hear a truthful take on beauty treatments—the good, the bad and the reformed. “I was trying so hard to keep up, and that actually made things worse. Now, I’m as natural as I can be.”
