If you were devoid of any knowledge of Sharon Stone’s filmography, then you would never guess she just turned 60 this year. The American actress, who shot to fame through starring roles in Basic Instinct (1992) and Casino (1995), looks incredible after reaching the big 6-0 last March.

To defy the constructs built around women of her age, Stone convinced filmmaker Susan Walter to cast her in the part meant for a 25-year-old protagonist in the 2018 film All I Wish, in which she was originally enlisted to play the heroine’s mother. True enough, Stone succeeded in persuading the first-time filmmaker that she was perfect for the role, and the character’s profile was altered to suit Stone. (Main character Senna is now supposedly 46 years old, but Stone manages to pull it off splendidly).

Achieving this body wasn’t a walk in the park for the actress. In 2001, she suffered a brain hemorrhage. At the time she was told she had a “five percent chance” of living, according to Page Six, and spent the next two years relearning everything—including how to walk and talk. She called the incident a “near-death experience” and a part of her did die in the process. The health scare helped her gain a new perspective on life and health.

As for her health and beauty, she manages to look her best by religiously following these wellness rules: 

On Fitness

To keep in shape, Stone does Pilates with her reformer at home, she said in the New York Times. Other times, she goes to the gym or does circuit training “depending on what mood I’m in.”

She proves that workouts don’t have to be in the gym. “Sometimes I do a series of standing leg lifts and circles in the tub, using the water as resistance,” she revealed in a past interview with Shape. During this feature, she also said she snubs plastic surgery, arguing that it’s making women look alike.

“For me, it’s more about real inner beauty. It’s important to have a philosophy or a way of life or faith that keeps you balanced,” she told People. Stone practices Buddhism. 

On Food

While she claims she eats what everyone else eats, Stone avoids food with gluten and processed food. In her regular rotation is a variety of low-glycemic food such as lentils, vegetables, and quinoa, according to Good Housekeeping.

She has long given up on drinking alcohol. Why? It was because of something her cohort Madonna did.

“I asked my trainer, 'What am I not doing? Find out what she’s doing!' She came back and said, 'I don’t think she drinks any alcohol.' So I decided to try zero for three months and I saw a huge difference,” Stone said. She added that she wants to control her feelings and now drinks a lot of decaffeinated tea. 

On Beauty

Stone keeps her makeup look minimalist, opting for natural colors and just a hint of mascara and blush. She’s a good friend of Francois Nars, whose Radiant Creamy Concealer and Orgasm Liquid Blush she loves. She’s also praised the Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Sarafine, saying once that “[Anastasia] really does know how to make a lipstick stay put.”

To remedy her “spotty skin,” Stone said she uses the Koh Gen Do water foundation, which she plans to use in her next movie. As for mascara, she extends her lashes with help of the Sisley So Curl or the IT Cosmetics.

On Skincare

Sharon Stone’s skincare routine is simple. In the morning, she washes her face with water and brusher her teeth with Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant toothpaste. She showers and bathes with Rituals Bath Foam. After a bath, she puts on Shiseido body lotion.

For her face, Stone uses Weleda Skin Food, La Mer, or Neutrogena with SPF 15 during dry seasons. A no-fail product she recommends is Avon’s Rich Moisture cream. When she travels, she makes sure to pack essential oils during flights.
