Vanessa spoke about the importance of hydrating the skin


"I grew up in the 70s so it was baby oil and reflectors," she told WebMD.

"Sunscreen would have done me well back in my teenage years and early 20s.

"I probably wouldn’t have the majority of the wrinkles I have now if I had paid attention to that.”

Sunscreen is a favourite skin care product among the rich and famous.

Kate Beckinsale has praised sunscreen for helping her maintain plump skin at 50.

Sunscreen has lots of benefits beyond stopping skin from turning red.

It helps to prevent premature ageing by blocking UV rays. UV rays can cause wrinkles over time.

Apply sunscreen in the mornings and top up throughout the day for the best results.

Vanessa credited the benefits of hydrating her skin from the inside out.

The 60-year-old will drink plenty of water and juices, as well as using hydrating cleansers, serums and moisturisers.

Hydrated skin will appear plumper and more youthful.

Vanessa will use in-office remedies such as skin tightening treatments and Botox.

This comes as Brooke Shields, 58, detailed the product she wished she used sooner for a youthful appearance.
