What does Golden Age mean to you?

For a long time, ageing was considered as a pathology, something unavoidable, an ending. I see it more as an opportunity. One-third of ageing is genetic, you can’t really fight it. The other two-thirds are totally under our control. It’s up to us to age well and to keep our inner vibrancy – because it nurtures us, and others!

How do you maintain your energy levels and good mood every day?

For me, ageing beautifully is a state of mind: having more self-confidence, forgiving yourself and others more easily and above all, staying interested in things and taking care of yourself. If I don’t look my age, it’s because I’ve stayed curious and I lead a healthy lifestyle.

How would you describe your skin and its vulnerabilities? 

The last years, one of my main concern has been that my skin is thinner, duller and more fragile – it pales and creases easily, a bit like a withered flower. It’s becoming harder to look well and reflect my inner good mood, even with make-up on – and the make-up isn’t always quite suited to my needs, it has to be said.
