If you want the perfect example of how to achieve anything you want, whatever the age, turn to Yazemeenah Rossi.
Rossi, who is also a visual artist and self-portrait photographer, got her big modelling break when she was 45. White hair and all, she started taking the modelling world by storm and building a career women half her age dream of.
Rossi, who is originally from the eastern part of France but was born and grew up on the island of Corsica, became popular because of her radiant skin, characteristic silver hair and joie de vivre she emanated.
If you’re wondering what the gorgeous model does to maintain such a glowing, line-free complexion, you’ll be happy to know it’s as easy as buying the right foods.
“There is no big secret, all I have ever done is eat organic food long before it became trendy,“ she once told Britain’s “Sunday Times.”
As well as eating good-quality fish and meat, she swears by eating one avocado a day and revolves her diet around vegetables, fruits and nuts.
“The best thing for the skin is to eat enough healthy fats on a daily basis and to oxygenate well while exercising. I never eat processed, frozen, microwaved or low-fat foods,” she said to UK’s online “Daily Star.”
She doesn’t drink sodas or bottled fruit juice (too much sugars, disguised !) and has stopped drinking alcohol since menopause. Yasmine also has a method of her own to refuel: she adds coconut oil and an egg yolk in her organic black coffee.
When it comes to taking care of her head-turning white locks, she runs rapeseed oil through the ends each day. The twice-divorced timeless beauty also believes her happy, carefree and relaxed childhood (she grew up with her grandparents who had a restaurant by the beach) and lifestyle (she does yoga) have enabled her to preserve her youth. Then, of course, there’s how one is on the inside as well.
