Naomi Campbell: Aging Only on Paper


Feb. 17 2024, Published 10:43 p.m. ET

It's always a great day when supermodels start sharing their secrets with the rest of us.

Naomi Campbell doesn't need an introduction. She continuously proves that she is defying gravity- and sticking by her own rules. In her early 50s with an iconic career, we wonder how- Naomi can look 20 years old.

Not only does she have good genes (her mother is also a model) but she knows that her inner self is the catalyst for her ageless beauty.

Inner Beauty Mirrors What on the Outside

We've all heard the constant saying, "Beauty is only skin deep — it's about what's inside that matters,” or something to that extent. Do we know how to achieve our inner beauty to reflect what we see on the outside? The supermodel has expressed in recent interviews about her lifestyle and the path she went down.

Drug and alcohol abuse caused her to look at herself differently. She's been in recovery ever since. Wellness derives from bettering herself inside. It took a toll on her personality and how others looked at her- but also how she viewed herself.

"You become short-tempered ... Your little charm goes. The little glow in your face goes," Naomi stated in an interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC News.

It's important to note that dependency on addiction does take away from who you are. We don't like ourselves, so when we use substances to become someone else- it creates a world of self-doubt. In the past, I've learned that alcohol became my fix for being more social. It's an ugly truth I had to overcome- which helped me to see myself as a social butterfly without it.

Stored Secrets in Social Media Vault

While celebs flock to social platforms to engage with fans, promote ad content, and say stuff they never get a chance to, Naomi goes on her Instagram to give you the workout routines.

To keep those good genes intact, she does extensive strength training.

An all-over workout routine starting with warming up muscles, boxing, and "getting tested for COVID-19 by someone in hazmat gear."

She keeps the girls on her toes with her workout videos and drastic antics.

Skincare secrets are also something she loves to share. In 2020, with Vogue's Beauty Routine on YouTube, she gave the internet a run for its money. Naomi's preferred stance on glowy skin vs. matte makes a difference for makeup."Dry matte skin ages you,” as she said in the YouTube video.

She loves to take her makeup off and wear a bare face whenever she can. I think we can all agree going makeup-free is so freeing.

Defying the Rules of Ageism

Gone are the days of maturing women smoking cigarettes and hair in rollers. It's a newfound freedom that age is truly a number. Naomi, a sexy, confident woman in her 50's shows 20-year-olds she will always create her lane regardless of age.

She walks in runways while most models retire in their late 30s a hit to misogyny and claiming a space for mature women that they are desirable and striking as the next.

She also joined the evergrowing list of new mothers in their middle ages by adding to her family unit — two babies under 2 years old at 53. Putting to rest that women can constantly change their narratives whenever they please.
