Twiggy: Moisturiser is key

Twiggy advises women to "moisturise to ridiculousness" to get good skin.

The former model was discovered in the 60s and continues to work to this day. One of the reasons why her career has been so long is that she takes good care of herself, with the star giving some tips about how to follow in her footsteps.

"My golden rules for looking good are to moisturise to ridiculousness with a really rich moisturiser," she told Woman & Home magazine. "And I always take my make-up off before going to bed. I try to swim regularly and, because I have a bad lower back, I do stretches two or three times a week for that."

At 62, Twiggy still has no plans to go under the surgeon's knife. She's been vocal about how amazed she is by the amount of women who do commit to cosmetic surgery in the past.

The star doesn't totally rule it out but thinks it's highly unlikely she will ever have a procedure.

"Cosmetic surgery is getting so common now and can be scary - it's sometimes like looking at someone wearing a mask," she mused.

"I haven't had anything done yet, but maybe I'll hit 70 and think it's time to have something done. I would never, ever use Botox, though. It's poison. It's basically botulism - why would you inject your face with that? I can't understand it."

Twiggy also discussed the world in general. She worries about how hard young people have it nowadays, especially with university fees rising in the UK.

"The state of the world is so scary at the moment and I think, when I was starting out, we had a much easier time than youngsters now," she said. "It's terrible that kids are leaving university and not getting jobs. It really troubles me. I wish there was a magic answer."
