Charlize Theron’s secret to aging backward at 48 revealed – the actress’s go-to French skincare & a lesson from her mom

CHARLIZE Theron’s age-defying beauty has stood the test of time, with the star still looking remarkably similar to how she did in 1997’s The Devil’s Advocate.

The Oscar-winning actress has openly discussed the skincare regimen, exercise, and diet she lives by at age 48.

Charlize dominated the late 1990s and early 2000s, starring in 1998’s Celebrity, 1999’s The Cider House Rules, and 2003’s The Italian Job.

She became the first African to win an acting Oscar after her captivating performance as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in 2003’s Monster.

The Snow White and the Huntsman actress has repeatedly left film fanatics in awe of her appearance as well as her acting talent.

“I’m convinced Charlize Theron is aging backward,” one person tweeted.

“Charlize Theron looks stunning from the tips of her toenails to the ends of her hair! Living, breathing, walking perfection,” another said.

The face of Dior’s J’Adore was voted the sexiest woman alive by readers of Esquire magazine back in 2007, having previously been given 8th place on FHM’s list in 2001.

Charlize has revealed that she isn’t afraid of aging despite being famed for her looks.

“My face is changing, and I love that my face is changing and aging,” she told Allure.

“People think I had a facelift. They’re like, ‘What did she do to her face?’ I’m like, ‘B***h, I’m just aging! It doesn’t mean I got bad plastic surgery. This is just what happens.’”

We’ve taken a deep dive into her anti-aging secrets to unveil how she remains ageless amid the demands of everyday life.

SKINCARE

Charlize Theron has gained an appreciation for skincare after having to wear heavy makeup and prosthetics for her acting roles.

However, she revealed that it wasn’t until her 30s that she began to develop a routine, and admits she still isn’t as “ritualistic” as some of her friends.

“In my 20s I would sleep with my make-up on, wake up the next morning, and use a Q-tip to clean it up and go right back out into the world,” she told Harpers Bazaar.

“And then you hit your mid or late 30s and you’re like, ‘Oh, so this is why they make moisturizers for your face!’

“I think the older you get, the more you want to feel good about your skin.”

The actress wears SPF 50 sunscreen every day, regardless of the weather.

She swears by La Roche-Posay, $37, on sunny days, and otherwise uses La Prairie Cellular Radiance Emulsion.

“When I wake up I just rinse my face and put on sunscreen,” she previously told Harpers Bazaar.

“I like to try new products, but there are ones I always go back to, like Crème de la Mer, you know, the classics,” she said of the $50 cream.

She said she applies a serum, eye cream, and a good moisturizer at night and gets a facial from Mila Moursi in Los Angeles every three weeks.

Charlize told Vogue that she always has La Mer lip balm in her bag, which is available from Nordstrom for $80.

Other skincare products that she swears by include La Mer Cleansing Gel, Dior’s Instant Gentle Exfoliant, and Dior’s Prestige Le Nectar De Nuit serum.

“I like Dior’s L’Or De Vie La Crème moisturizer or the Prestige La Crème,” she added.

“Then if it’s winter and really, really cold, I’ll use Crème De La Mer.”

MAKEUP

Back in 2020, Charlize shared with her 7.6 million Instagram followers two photos of herself having her makeup done by her daughter.

“To every make-up artist out there….. watch out, you’ve got competition!” she joked.

The actress often does her own makeup, having grown up with Jessica Lange and Frances McDormand among her beauty influences.

She told W magazine that her mom helped to shape her perception of beauty and how to do makeup.

“She was always like, ‘Trust me, your skin will never be this good,’” Charlize said.

“‘Stop putting so much foundation on.’ And she was so right. I don’t use foundation at all anymore. On older skin, it just ages you.”

Having been signed as a brand ambassador for Dior in 2004, it is perhaps unsurprising that the items in her makeup bag are from the French luxury brand.

She has previously spoken about using DiorBlush Vibrant Color Powder Blush in Rose Libertine, Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in Tromp d’Oeil, and Dior Forever Skin Glow.

“I’ve always been more casual and effortless,” she told Elle. “I try to keep my red carpet look classic.

“My makeup artist, Shane Paish, usually does some sort of smoky eye by lining my upper and lower lash line with waterproof liner and coating my lashes with tons of mascara.

“I’m lucky enough to have worked with the same crew who create a cohesive look with my hair, makeup, and styling.”

HAIR

Though she’s taken a turn as a brunette, Charlize is mostly known for her blonde locks.

According to Cosmopolitan, the two-toned color palette of Charlize’s hair embraces the Gemini hair trend.

“Also known as color blocking/paneling, the trend is an evolution of the popular ‘money piece’ that gradually got bolder and less blended” Jordanna Cobella, Wella Professionals UK Colour Ambassador and Trend Forecaster told the magazine.

Charlize is among colorist Tracey Cunningham’s loyal customers.

Tracey swears by Olaplex haircare products including their No. 3 Repairing Treatment and No. 5P Blonde Enhancer Toning Conditioner.

She also recommends Dr. Barbara Sturm Balancing Scalp Serum, which costs $100.

“You have to nourish your scalp. Once you lose [a] follicle, you will never get it back,” she told CNN.

“You have to keep your scalp clean and make sure that there’s room for hair to grow, and this serum is great for that.”

Charlize previously revealed that she also uses castor oil to keep her hair healthy.

“I put it on my brows and scalp once or twice a week. It’s definitely made my hair thicker,” she told Harpers Bazaar.

FITNESS

Charlize Theron has been working with personal trainer Fedele De Santis throughout the years to maintain her svelte figure.

However, depending on the movie that she’s working on she may also receive training from other specialists.

“For instance, for Atomic, I actually had eight trainers checking in with me at various times,” she told RSNG.

“They helped me so much because I really had doubts that I’d be able to get to the level I needed to for those fight sequences.

“Each brought something different to the way I was going about building strength and working martial arts into routines I already had established.”

The actress revealed that she works out up to four times a week, with her favorite exercises including pilates, power yoga, and spin.

She said her diet for the day changes depending on how active she’s been, so even on a rest day she keeps moving.

Charlize said her body takes longer to recover now than when she was younger it can be a challenge when making action movies.

“More than my face, I wish I had my 25-year-old body that I can just throw against the wall and not even hurt tomorrow,” she told Allure.

“Now, if I don’t work out for three days and I go back to the gym, I can’t walk. I can’t sit down on the toilet.”

DIET

Charlize follows a predominantly raw plant-based diet and according to Women’s Health, she eats six small meals throughout the day.

The actress practices portion control and will have a quarter of a burger rather than deprive herself when she feels like indulging.

“I have juices and kale and green salads every single day,” she told Red magazine.

“When I’m eating healthily, getting enough sleep, and not drinking alcohol, that’s when I look my best.

“That’s when I’m happiest and I think it shows.”
