Supermodel Elle Macpherson says she feels better than ever after crossing the age of 50.
Asked if she panicked after turning 50, she told OK magazine: "I just thought, how cool. I have years of experience - and hopefully wisdom. It's a wonderful milestone from an emotional, spiritual and a physical point of view. I feel better than ever."
Macpherson has changed her beauty regime as she has got older and though her body is different to how it used to be, she is happy about the changes, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"Your skin texture changes (as you get older) so I'm very diligent about massage, exfoliation and circulation to make sure the skin is nourished and moisturised. The shape of your body changes to some extent, especially after having children. But I embrace it."
"I don't want to have the same body that I had when I was 20 - after all, I'm not the same person as I was then," she said.
Macpherson, who has sons Flynn, 16, and Aurelius, 11, from a previous relationship is married to hotelier Jeffrey Soffer, found turning 40 made her look after her body more.
"When I realised how my wellness affected the way I look, I started to focus on it - making sure my body was nourished and that I was having a healthy diet and listening to my body and dealing with ailments as they came." she said.
