She's 63 and and yet, would she not be the first person your eyes landed on in a busy room?
My Saturday morning ritual begins withe the Wall Street Journal and cup of coffee. And today, moments into this routine, I was delighted to read a piece on Linda Rodin (pictured), a stylist who has worked for Madonna and does the Victoria's Secret fashion shoots.
Rodin hasn't worn makeup since she was 30, except for matte lipstick. She drinks green juice, wears sunscreen in the summer (20 spf) and is rail-thin despite never working out. She snacks on seaweed, has never colored her hair and gets a weekly blowout.
"The secret to aging gracefully is maintenance," she said. "Botox is fine in moderation, but the more you do the older you look. You can't chase youth. You'll just look old with a facelift."
But the most interesting thing about her is that she launched a beauty product business called Rodin Olio Lusso in 2008, at a time when many are staring at retirement.
