One more famous ageless celebrity, Lucy Liu, most known for her roles in the movies “Kill Bill” and “Charlie’s Angels”, had a very difficult life before reaching the celebrity ranking. Born as a daughter of a Chinese immigrant, Lucy grew up speaking Mandarin in New York and she started learning English at the age of 5. She trained the martial art kali-eskrima-silat as a hobby, which is very similar to Samurai fighting style. That is the reason why Lucy usually didn’t need the doubler for the fighting scenes. Even during young age, Lucy was showing amazing fitness and cardio levels.
This ageless celebrity was on the surgery for breast cancer in 1991, at only 23 years. Despite the cancer being diagnosed as benign, it left huge consequences and this beauty queen became lot stricter towards herself. Since then, Lucy had to become very strict in her food and exercising regime to keep her body ageless and she still respects healthy nutrition and exercising principles, even at the age of 49. And she looks like she is in the early 30s!

Lucy is a very strange person when it comes to fitness. She is not having a regular routine or workout plan. Neither is she a huge fan of any activity! An ageless celebrity Lucy Liu says that ten years of pilates transformed her body and made her feel differently. She says pilates relaxes her brain and body and she feels a lot better after the training session. Lucy says pilates also changed the way she sees herself and her outlook on life.

Lucy says the best way to keep her motivation lies in watching TV shows while running on a treadmill. She likes to increase the speed in the middle of the show and decreases it slowly as the show comes to an end. As she says, a show usually lasts for 40-45 minutes, which is the perfect time for cardio training.

She thinks the flexibility is the most important in human relationships and the world would be a better place if people would be more flexible.
There is a good reason why she is an ageless celebrity – her nutrition is mostly based on a healthy diet with sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals (link to the texts I wrote) and fibers. Lucy is a fan of fruit and fresh squeezed juices.
When exercising, Lucy avoids sweets and junkie food because she tends to feel good and full of energy, and she doesn’t want to ruin her body and the results she achieved. She usually makes juice before noon, usually of bananas and berry fruit. If she is really hungry, she prefers burrito with spinach, a fried egg, and tomatoes. Her favorite dinner is fish with steamed vegetables or a salad.

Lucy doesn’t think too much face treatment is required, she thinks that the better look of your face can easily be achieved if you coat it with a thin layer of petroleum jelly. This ageless celebrity uses only powder to correct bumps on her face.
After a long day of filming, Lucy uses makeup remover. Then she uses a soap with a washcloth to wash her face. After it, Lucy mixes cream, aloe vera and a touch of oil together, and then massages her face. She finishes skin care with various moisturizers that protect from dryness.
If Lucy doesn’t work on a specified day, she only uses washcloth and water for her face, without soap. And she definitively looks at least 15 years younger!
