Fresh off her 50th birthday, Danni Minogue has revealed a rare insight into her highly sought-after beauty routine. And as far as celebrity anti-ageing tips go, it’s one of the best there is.
Coming as no surprise whatsoever, Dannii and sister Kylie Minogue both have a strong gene pool on their side. Speaking to The Sun, Dannii revealed that both her dad and grandmother Millie (who is about to celebrate her 102nd birthday) have always had incredible skin.
In addition to the inherited glow, the usual suspects on any skin care recommendation list have also been playing a role. “It’s obviously down to the boring things that we know are good for you – sleep, exercise, drinking water,” she explained.
But to balance the youthful, glowing genetics that Dannii has been blessed with (because we’ve got to keep it fair somehow), she’s also struggled with an ongoing stubborn skin condition. However, it’s one she’s managed to find an effective treatment for: “I have terrible rosacea so I have laser treatment for it. It makes the skin so smooth and glowing and helps with [stimulating] collagen,” Dannii shared.
And while the discovery of laser treatments have made a remarkable difference to the singer’s skin, there’s something else that’s made the greatest impact of all.
Following the diagnosis of Kylie’s breast cancer in 2005, Dannii quickly found herself with a ‘real appreciation’ for life; one that left her viewing the ageing process in an entirely new light.
“Growing old is a privilege,” she shared. “I realised that after going through Kylie being sick and not knowing if we were going to lose her”.
And there it is, the reality check we all need when we’re worrying about wrinkles.
