Life Begins at 90

In case you haven’t noticed, Boston Red Lox loves Iris Apfel. After a retrospective of her clothing toured the country a few years ago, she has achieved status as a style icon at the ripe old age of 90. Subsequent endeavors included a limited edition line of cosmetics from MAC, and a line of jewelry and handbags for HSN. Recently Iris divulged her diet and skin care secrets to Harper’s Bazaar. According to Iris:

    “I avoid junk food like the plague; I don’t drink soda or eat rich foods. I keep my skin clean and moisturized with Cetaphil and M.A.C. moisturizers.”

So there you have it. These tips no doubt are how Iris still looks good and feels good at 90 years of age. Personally, I can’t give up soda or junk food, as I’m hopelessly addicted to Diet Dr. Pepper and nacho chips. But maybe I don’t need a 10-step skin care regimen. Perhaps a simple cleansing and moisturizing routine is all one needs to maintain healthy skin throughout life.
