This is what 64 looks like: a mother of two says that hydration, exercise and sleeping on a silk pillowcase keep her young

- She retains her timeless appearance by using Palmer & # 39; s Cocoa Butter Formula
- Mother of two uses gardening to keep fit and as a time to practice mindfulness
Carol Rimmer lives in Preston. She has two children, Anthony, 44, and Courtney, 36. She worked in local government.
My mother and my mother led me to religiously hydrate. I love Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula (£ 2.65, superdrug.com), it's great for dry skin and I use it everywhere – I don't think you need different types for your face and body. The texture is thick, but it absorbs quickly into my skin. I even put it on my hair overnight as a deep conditioning treatment.
Every night I sleep on a silk pillowcase (£ 45, johnlewis.com). I have been using it for ten years and I even take it with me on vacation. It is so good for your hair and skin because you won't wake up with so many creases. It has to work because people always comment on how few wrinkles I have. Even bus drivers do not believe that I am over 60!

THE GREEN GYM
I love sports and went to the gym three times a week. After a recent injury, however, I had to stick to yoga. I do a lot of gardening, which is very physical – there is a lot of bending and lifting – but I can go at my own pace, so it's less challenging than strength training. I also use this time to practice mindfulness.
IMMEDIATELY HAIR FROM SALON
I have Afro hair that gets very dry, so I only wash it once a week. To freshen it up, I spritz with Africa & # 39; s Best Organic Olive Oil Extra Virgin Hair Polish (£ 5.71, amazon.co.uk). My stylist recommended it: the consistency is light, so it moisturizes your hair without making it look greasy.
PRIORITIZE DESIGNER SHOES
It is important to treat yourself – and my weakness are designer shoes. I have five pairs of Christian Louboutin heels, plus a pair of Vivienne Westwood, but my favorites are Dior crocodile print pumps with large bows. They were expensive, but I have had them for more than ten years. I think it is worth spending more on this type of investment. Moreover, I can combine them with much cheaper clothing and it makes the whole outfit more expensive.
