Modern Family star Sofia Vergara didn't want her new perfume, So Very Sofia by Sofia, to smell like an "old lady" scent.

Sofia Vergara regrets not applying sunblock to her chest when she was younger.

The Modern Family beauty is envied for her perfect curves and skin, often showing off her physique in figure-hugging pieces. But the actress isn’t completely satisfied with her appearance, admitting there’s one thing she would do differently if she could turn back time.

“In my 20s, I started to use sunblock on my face,” she told PeopleStyle. “I wish I had put it on my chest too. I do it now (every day). I think it’s too late, but what can I do?”

Her comments echo those heard by other stars like Jennifer Aniston, who recently admitted she didn’t use to be as good with sunscreen eight years ago as she is now.

As well as promoting skin protection Sofia, 44, is also currently busy launching her new perfume, So Very Sofia by Sofia, which she debuted this week (beg15Aug16) with Avon. It follows on from her previous scents, such as Love by Sofia Vergara, and this time includes notes of Flor de Mayo orchid from Sofia’s home country of Colombia.

“I wanted to incorporate something that would make me want to wear it,” she added. “It smells really good. Not like an old lady flower scent.”

There was a great deal of thought put into the product as the brunette star made sure everyone close to her gave feedback, including her hunky husband Joe Manganiello and son Manolo, 23.

Juggling an acting career with her beauty business, Sofia reveals it can sometimes be a struggle to balance both roles.

“It’s very difficult for women to be entrepreneurs, even more difficult than men because we have to deal with more,” she added. “We are more involved with our houses. We are more involved with our children. And then if we’re working, we need to be there, so we have a lot more to handle than men.”
