In terms of maintaining good looks, women and age don’t get along well. Of course, the aging process gives invaluable experience and make you wiser. With age, you gain many things such as maturity, knowledge and better understanding of yourself and world around you. But, beauty, youthful looks and vitality isn’t one of them. Also, the advanced age leads to sagging muscles and wrinkled skin.
Everyone has their own way of dealing with aging. Some tend to spend hours in gym to maintain their youthful figure, follow carefully planned diet schedule and get tons of natural beauty treatments to maintain youthful looks. Whereas some undergo numerous surgeries and get Botox injections, and end up looking like robots completely devoid of giving any expressions.
However, there are some who are naturally endowed to age in the best possible way. Also, they masterfully use the above mentioned ways to halt the progress of age and look youthful in their fifties. Here, in the article we will list the hottest female celebrities over 50.

To maintain her stunning figure, Madonna relies heavily on Yoga, Pilates and ballet oriented workouts. In fact, she is credited as one of the most popular ambassadors of the vigorous Ashtanga style of yoga.

Cox, who has a 10 year old daughter has revealed in an interview with US magazine that she tries to drink 64 ounces of water everyday. It helps her in maintaining her youthful looks and gives a boost to her metabolism, which becomes bit sluggish with age. Her secret to marvelous skin is that she uses hot towel soaked with little neroli or lavender oil to wipe off her makeup. It also opens up skin pores and allows face cream to sink better.
