Cameron Diaz Encourages Women to Embrace Aging and Shares Her Best Advice for Women in Their 20s, 30s and 40s

Cameron Diaz isn’t bothered by the aging process, and wishes more women had the same attitude.

“Do we keep punishing other women and ourselves for growing older, for doing something that’s perfectly natural? Or do we pat each other on the back and say, ‘You’re doing amazing?’,” the actress, 43, says in the April issue of Women’s Health.

Diaz studied the way our bodies age for her new project, The Longevity Book, and is now sharing what she learned with women of all life stages.

“I want women to understand their own journey and be prepared for it,” she said.

For women in their 20s, Diaz recommends a focus on diet and exercise.

“Bone mass is really important in your twenties – after that, we don’t build much bone anymore,” she explained. “Your twenties are your best chance to build bone through nutrition, physical activity and strength training.”

Diaz says women should start seriously thinking about their fertility in their 30s.

“After 35, most women’s eggs start to dwindle,” she said. “There’s no way of knowing until you test yourself. That might be something you want to do in your early thirties if your fertility is important to you.”

Women in their 40s should stop stressing and start really enjoying life.

“Make connections, make friends, join communities, and really honor yourself,” said Diaz. “You’re getting ready to make that transition to menopause, so pay attention to where you’re at emotionally, physically and mentally. The women who stress have it longer and harder, but the ones who accept it have it shorter and less severe.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Her advice is very good. The snide and jealous comments on here are from unhappy people who are obviously not going to accept aging well because of their bitter attitude toward others. Cameron looks great in these photos, content and happy as well as embracing her age.

I think this is great advice! Also – botox schmotox….maybe she did, maybe she didn’t maybe she’s speaking from good and bad experiences….all I know is that she looks fantastic and happy. Folks with the negative comments – why don’t you try to enjoy your life and not bring down others? We live in a world with WAYYYYYY too many insults and unproductive criticism.. Didn’t anyone ever tell you…if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all?

I needed to send you this bit of note so as to thank you so much as before just for the superb knowledge you’ve featured at this time. It was so tremendously open-handed of you to offer easily just what most of us could have distributed for an electronic book in order to make some cash on their own, even more so since you might have tried it if you ever wanted. The thoughts additionally acted to provide a fantastic way to realize that the rest have the identical zeal much like mine to understand more in respect of this problem. I believe there are some more fun periods up front for those who looked at your site.
