How Elizabeth Hurley Looks So Fantastic At 56

How Elizabeth Hurley Looks So Fantastic At 56

Ever wondered how Elizabeth Hurley looks as phenomenal as ever in her 50s? Yep, we have, too – because while we’re not here for ageist commentary about women’s looks (and neither is Sarah Jessica Parker for the record), we are here for appreciating when they look fantastic at any age.

So how does she do it? Well, we’re going to go ahead and shelve the ‘sold her soul to the devil’ theory once and for all. Why? Because Elizabeth has actually been honest and open about all the work she puts in, from a truly rigorous moisturising routine to adding an apple to every meal she can.

Keen to follow Elizabeth’s lead in the wellness department? You’ve come to the right place to find out your next steps – here’s everything she does to stay looking so damn good..

Elizabeth Hurley’s skin care routine

We figured hydration would have something to do with Elizabeth’s eternally glowing skin, but we may have underestimated just how seriously she takes her application game. “The one thing I swear by is moisturiser, and lots of it,” she shared with Women & Home. “I’ll moisturise my face about six times a day and my neck about 10 times a day. Lightly dab it over your face, and it instantly makes you glow.” Er, seems a tad excessive, but whatever works, right? We do love an instant glow…

The one specific product she raves about, however, is actually a serum by Estée Lauder, a brand she’s worked with and loved for quite some time now. “I think I’ve been lucky because I’ve been with the company for 24 years so I’ve had really good products at my fingertips, and I use a lot of them,” she told Yahoo Lifestyle. “My most favourite product of all has always been Advanced Night Repair ($110 at Estée Lauder) which is a serum that I was given my first bottle of when I first joined the company in 1995. I’ve used it religiously twice a day ever since.” Twice a day seems a little more doable; after all, we can’t get enough of this cult-status serum, either.

Her top non-topical skin care tip? Acceptance and treating others with kindness. “You have to try to stay positive,” she told Today. “We all get terrible knocks in life, all of us. Sometimes I think to glow, you have to let go of a lot of stuff and move on. Be as nice as you can to everyone.” In Elizabeth’s book, good karma equals a great complexion.

For the record, she’s also said that filler is “not [her] cup of tea”.

Elizabeth Hurley’s workout routine

Considering she has her very own beachwear line, it’s no surprise Elizabeth feels comfortable strutting her stuff in a swimsuit – as she should. The interesting part, however, is that she actually has quite a unique approach to exercise…

“I don’t work out, per se, but I am very active,” she explained to Women’s Health. “I do a lot of exercise, but it’s really the gardening; cutting down a hedge, using my chainsaw to cut down a tree, logging, all of that stuff. Not only do I feel, well, actually exhausted, but also I feel that I’ve got the leaves up, which is also a nice thing. I’d rather do housework than go to the gym,’ she shared. “I’d rather scrub a mirror; it does just as much.”

She also admitted she tends to do squats while she brushes her teeth (um, genius) and takes her dog for 30 minute walks each day. As for the pace, she likes to opt for a stride “fast enough to get [her] heart rate up.”

Elizabeth Hurley’s diet

Elizabeth definitely eats healthy, too, with her primary focus being on finding fresh food. “I haven’t eaten processed food for 100 years,” Hurley told The Sunday Times, perhaps slightly exaggerating re: the length of time. “I don’t eat sweets. I drink little alcohol. I don’t smoke but I deeply regret that I once did. I have learned to eat lighter and not so late.”

“I like simple, natural, easy food. I don’t really like food with a lot of chemicals or additives,” she added in a chat with The Cut. “When I’m at home in the country, I always try and eat food that’s grown locally. That goes for meats and vegetables.”

Speaking of vegetables, they play a very important role in her meal plans, as does fruit. “I think one of the most transformative things that I’ve done is making 50 per cent of what I eat vegetable matter,” she also told The Sunday Times. “If you have a slice of toast for breakfast, have an apple too. Counteract everything with vegetables.” Sounds like stellar advice to us!

    • True Perthchick. That said, my great Aunt and my Auntie who have German/Scottish/Irish heritage both have absolutely amazing skin and they grew up in South Australia. My Auntie has lived in WA for most of her life now. They’ve always worn hats and protective clothing. Unlike my Dad and his brothers, my Auntie has never had skin cancer! My Mum had beautiful nutshell brown skin and falsely believed that her dark skin would protect her from the harshness of Australian Sun- how wrong she was! She never had wrinkles but she had extremely severe hyperpigmentation- the worst I’ve ever seen! Hyperpigmentation is to brown and black peeps, what wrinkles are to white peeps! Mum’s hyperpigmentation covered her face, neck and décolletage!

    • Processed foods cause AGES (Advanced Glycation End Products). In turn, these cause you to age faster and they can be carcinogenic (acrylamide) in the case of fried, grilled and/or burnt foods!

  1. If I’ve got a moisturiser to review, I’ll use it regularly; otherwise, I use rosehip oil once a day – or occasionally twice.

    Her diet sounds sensible: fresh, local & 50% vegetables! Wow!

  2. Wow it must have some be some flexible schedule to be able to apply moisturiser that often. I am twice a day on my face, neck & décolletage and as many times I can on my hands. Covid has ruined my hands they now look 10 years older.
