The 5 Things Lionel Richie Does to Stay Looking Young
Between his daughter, Sofia Richie Grainge’s, extravagant wedding and his performance at the coronation, Lionel Richie has found himself back in the spotlight recently. The 73-year-old looks amazing, and he recently shared a few things he credits for his youthful appearance and feeling.
Lionel tells the Daily Mail he’s not interested in plastic surgery because it “locks you in for that year [while you recover], and after that, you can’t go naturally, you’re staying right there…You try and go back to reset, and you can’t.” He also points out that things could go wrong with a procedure.
Most importantly to Lionel, he wants to avoid aesthetic procedures so he remains recognizable to someone important. “God might not recognize me [if I get surgery], so I want to make sure he knows me,” says Richie. Therefore he opts for a more holistic approach to anti anti-aging.
Lionel says, “Water, sleep and sweat, not too much red meat,” keep him looking and feeling youthful. “[Sex] will work also, and it’s good for your heart,” he adds. You heard it hear first. Lionel Richie suggests swapping steak for sex and prioritizing rest, exercise and hydration.
