It turns out that Garry Marshall knew what he was doing when he cast Julia Roberts in the iconic Cinderella tale Pretty Woman: the actress has just been crowned People’s 2017 World’s Most Beautiful Woman, winning the title for an astounding fifth time!
The record-breaking fifth win comes as Julia rounds the corner to the big 5-0 (her birthday will be October 28). She’s every bit as gorgeous as she was when she first won back in 1991 at the age of 23. Her second win was in 2000 at the age of 32, and she was 37 on her third win in 2005. As if that weren’t impressive enough, she’s taken home the title twice in her 40s: once at age 42 in 2010, and finally this year at the age of 49.
Julia Roberts has been married to cinematographer Daniel Moder for 14 years and is the mother of their twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 12, and son Henry, 9. So, what’s the 49-year-old actress’ secret for staying so beautiful? We’ve taken a look back at some of the beauty secrets that Julia Roberts has shared throughout the years, so let’s all take note!

Julia Roberts’ Best Beauty Secrets
It’s somewhat mystifying that Julia Roberts’ youthful appearance has spanned nearly three decades (it’s been 26 years since she was first named World’s Most Beautiful Woman by People). Of course, we’re all dying to know how she manages to continue looking so amazing!
So what are Julia Roberts’ beauty secrets? As it turns out, her beauty routine is surprisingly low-key. She keeps it simple with the following go-to beauty products.
1. A Good Moisturizer
Julia told People magazine in August 2012: “I’m happy if I have on moisturizer and ChapStick! When you’re dressing three people besides yourself, something has to fall away.”
2. Eyeliner And Mascara – Or Big Sunglasses
When she was named People‘s Most Beautiful Woman in 2010, Julia’s makeup artist Genevieve shared that eyeliner — worn “smuged and sexy” — was the actress’ favorite beauty product. “It’s something she can’t live without,” the artist revealed.
Julia herself confessed to People in 2012 that she was a big fan of wearing mascara. “It just makes you look like you’ve had a good nap,” she shared. But if she doesn’t have the time, she confessed that she’s “learned to always have a big pair of dark sunglasses within arm’s reach before going out.”
3. Healthy White Teeth And Gums
Often eschewing makeup for a more natural look, Julia Roberts knows the importance of a beautiful smile. Her biggest beauty focus seems to be the brilliantly white teeth behind her megawatt smile. She brushes her teeth with baking soda daily, a trick she learned from her grandfather, who “only had one cavity in his entire life.”
4. Lancôme Skin-Care Products
As the flawless face of Lancôme since 2010, Julia admits she has learned a lot from the experience. She regularly uses their skin-care products to keep that radiant, youthful glow intact. Julia tells Viva, “When I’m not in a rush, I use Lancôme’s Mousse Radiance Clarifying Self-foaming Cleanser and Hydra-Intense Masque.” Apparently, it’s working!
Will Julia Roberts Ever Get A Face-Lift?
As she continues to age, Julia faces increasing questions about Hollywood’s intense competition and demand for eternal youth. With this in mind, what is Julia Roberts’ stance on plastic surgery? The gorgeous star told You magazine (via The Telegraph), “By Hollywood standards, I guess I’ve already taken a big risk in not having had a face-lift, but I’ve told Lancôme that I want to be an aging model — so they have to keep me for at least five more years until I’m over 50.”
