It’s unfortunately all too easy to get wrapped up in comparing ourselves to others — especially when it comes to our looks as we age. Even gorgeous celebrities like Suzanne Somers can fall in this trap, but the actress recently opened up about her skincare secrets and how she isn’t letting any little jealousies hold her back from living her best life.
“I like the way I’m aging,” Somers told Coveteur. “I like being 73. You never hear a woman say that.” The Three’s Company star’s appreciation for her age comes from re-dedicating herself to a healthy lifestyle after surviving breast cancer 20 years ago. “I couldn’t accept that I’m supposed to live the rest of my life without a quality of life,” she explained. “I decided to eat as though my life depended upon it, which I believed it did. I would value sleep because I hadn’t been.” And yes, she still relies on a ThighMaster to help keep her in shape, which you can purchase from her website ($39.99, SuzanneSomers.com).
It also doesn’t hurt that Somers can count on unwavering support from her husband of 43 years, Alan Hamel. “[He] thinks I’m beautiful with nothing,” she spilled. “I’m lucky. Do all husbands? I don’t know… But when you have the good fortune of finding love, which I have, you’re going to do everything to live as long as you can so you can get more and more of it. It’s a party you don’t want to leave.”
That said, there is one relatable area Somers fessed up to feeling self-conscious about: her neck. “When I look at the 40- and 50-year-old anchors on the news, I’m transfixed by their beautiful necks,” she said. “I admit it. I have neck envy.” However, don’t expect to hear about her getting any procedures done to “fix” her neck any time soon. Instead, Somers has her own line of organic skin-firming products that give her and others confidence about their looks without going under the knife.
