Jennifer Aniston explains why she doesn't seem to age

The Friends actor once opened up about her daily routines to stay healthy

Now nearing her mid-50s, Jennifer Aniston looks as good today as she did when she first appeared in Friends nearly 30 years ago. So, how does she do it?

Having worked on one of the best-loved comedies for 10 years, as well as a multitude of Hollywood films since then, Aniston obviously enough money to afford the best of the best when it comes to health and beauty.

It's not all about what you can pay for, though, and as she reached her 50s the star shared some of the good habits she's got into to help her stay healthy.

The actor has previously spoken about how she feels 'really beautiful' after exercise, noting she's 'taken care of my body, my endorphins are going, my blood is pumping. I’m taking care of the one body I have'.

In an interview with Vogue, Aniston also spoke about being mindful about the kind of information she takes in, to help her focus on what's important.

She revealed that she refrains from looking at her phone first thing in the morning, saying: "I don’t look at my phone for at least the first hour after waking up.

"The mental difference this makes impacts the whole day. I have my chargers in a drawer six feet away from my bed and I have a little iPod or iPhone from 1912 that I swiped clean and strictly use for my alarms and my sleep apps."

Jennifer Aniston makes sure to take breaks from social media.

Aniston also makes sure to take breaks from social media, describing the platforms as 'toxic'.

She explained: "I understand the innocence of how it was birthed and the intention was to bring people together and create a social community. And that’s lovely, but you have to take the good with the bad—that people just sit there and throw emotional knives at other people on these platforms."

When it comes to beauty products, Aniston made clear that she doesn't collaborate with any brands unless she truly believes in what they're offering.

“I don’t want to be the face of something if it's not a part of my daily routine. That's really important to me,” she said.

Jennifer Aniston is now 54 years old.

However, one brand she has previously aligned herself with is health brand Vital Proteins, which Aniston discovered after her doctor suggested adding collagen supplements to her routine.

“My joints, my nails, my hair, my skin everything just started to improve,” she said, noting our collagen production starts to decline as we age.

But while Aniston does take steps to stay healthy, she's not afraid of growing older.

What my Mom used to say to me was, 'This is about longevity. It’s a privilege to grow old, but we don't have to grow sick'," she said.

"It’s just sort of been a theme in my life: to enjoy the age I am and not look at aging as a negative, but as the privilege that it is. We all age!"
