1. Kate Middleton
The Duchess of Cambridge always looks flawless and many are after Kate Middleton's anti-ageing hacks. Luckily for us, her biggest secret is a serum that’s been dubbed “botox in a bottle” by users.
Kate apparently uses Biotulin Supreme Skin Gel, an organic Botox gel from Germany, to keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay. Skincare expert and medical aesthetician Cassandra Bankson told InStyle, "This gel contains ingredients that mimic Botox without the severity of injections, so it can actually be a wonderful addition to a graceful ageing skincare routine." The duchess is also a fan of this high street face cream, and it was also recently revealed that Kate has enhanced her youthful glow by ditching this heavy eyeliner.
2. Meghan Markle
The Duchess of Sussex has the most expensive royal skincare routine, but the secret to Meghan Markle's sculpted features is an easy at-home skincare DIY trick which won’t cost you a penny. It's all to do with simply massaging your face to decrease signs of ageing.
Crediting aesthetician Nicola Joss for giving her the knowledge to achieve her toned jawline, Meghan said in 2014, “I do facial exercises from Nicola Joss, who basically has you sculpt your face from the inside out. I swear it works, as silly as you may feel. On the days I do it, my cheekbones and jawline are way more sculpted.” Meghan is also a fan of Laura Mercier’s Pure Canvas Illuminating Primer, rather than heavy foundations.

3. Jennifer Aniston
Recently, actress Jennifer Aniston shared self control secrets she follows when it comes to her diet. But what about her seemingly wrinkle-free skin? Actress Jen three to four 650ml bottles of water a day and says H20, sleep and sunscreen are her “top three anti-ageing tips”.
One product she’s always sworn by is Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Daily Moisturiser. She also loves their Daily Moisturising lotion for the body, revealing, “I’m such a creature of habit. When I went out on my own, that was a staple in my bathroom. I just love it. I have a bottle in my car. It’s in all of my bathrooms. Put it on right out of the shower before you get too dry.”
4. Jennifer Lopez
Dukan diet fan J-Lo eats well, looks after her body and could easily pass for someone half her actual age. And it’s no surprise she has her own skincare line, JLo Beauty which she credits with maintaining that youthful glow.
Speaking about That JLo Glow Serum in an Instagram video, she said, “It is the magic ingredient, the secret sauce, the fountain of youth, the vitamins for your face. There’s not a day, there’s not a morning, there’s not an evening, there’s not a moment where I’m not putting this on.” Snap this product up
