Khloé Kardashian may be 32 today, but she’s picked up a lifetime’s worth of anti-aging tips thanks to her time in the spotlight (as well as her big family of equally age-defying women). How does she do it? Well, she’s told us herself — so prepare to take notes.
1. She Switches Up Her Hair Color
Remember when the hair chameleon dyed her previously dark do an auburn tint “for about a week” in January 2011? Us, too, and it turns out the brand-new hue had an added effect on her complexion: “My skin looked so different,” she previously told PeopleStyle.
“I love my short hair now,” she previously told PeopleStyle. “I have always wanted to have short hair and I never thought I could. I just thought, that doesn’t go with my face. But when I look at my old long hair, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, it was so cheesy.’ I am finally saying less is more.””
She added that her shoulder-skimming bob makes her feel more her age, but in a good way. “Now, I just feel free, and very 30,” she said. “I also feel chic and not as cheesy — but I still love a cheesy moment sometimes.”

3. She Takes Great Care of Her Skin
With as much glam as Kardashian does for the cameras, she makes it a point to detox and de-gunk her skin at least once a week. Her favorite blemish fighter? A clay-based mask from Bliss. “This is one of my favorite masks,” the TV personality says of the Bliss Multi-‘face’-eted All-in-One Clay Mask. “I love how it gets deep down into my pores. That deep clean is needed about once a week.”
4. She Works Hard for Her Killer Bod
After dropping 40 pounds, Kardashian is more in tune with her body than ever before — but the star didn’t always think she’d be this fit. “If you had asked me two years ago if I would have the body I have now I would have said, ‘No way, my body can’t do that,’” she previously told PeopleStyle. “I have always made excuses, like ‘I am big-boned,’ or ‘I’m just not built that size,’ or ‘I could never be a size whatever.’”
But now, she says she doesn’t get caught in the number game: “I don’t weigh myself, I don’t believe in numbers.”

5. She’s Open to Anything – but Wants to Wait on the Injections
The star says she’s not afraid of getting older — and in fact, she embraces the unknown. “In 10 years, I don’t know what I am going to look like — facial, hair color, body, anything,” she told PeopleStyle. “But I also think that’s the fun of life. I hope I age gracefully. I believe in lasers and fillers — whatever makes you happy. But I am not obsessive about that stuff.”
“I just like to take care of myself,” she added. “I sleep with oils and lotions on my face every night and I focus on being healthy from the inside out, taking 20 vitamins every morning and drinking water. That’s how I want to age gracefully.”
