Kristin DAVIS

"Ever since I adopted my daughter [8-month-old Gemma Rose] I really have done no exercise except hold her-so my deltoids are doing well, but my lower half not so much," says Davis. "Everyone says, 'Why don't you just go to yoga?' but I don't want to leave her for that long. Having a baby is invigorating. It's stressful, of course. But they're so in the moment and you have to get on the floor and play with them, and it's fantastic."

Leslie BIBB

"I won a modeling contest when I was 16, and ever since then I stopped going in the sun," says Bibb. "I really think not being in the sun has made me stay looking young. I never used to get the tan I wanted; I always ended up feeling blotchy and gross. And I knew that I'd be doing irreversible damage to my skin. So I'm a crazy person about it. I'm the person who's like, 'Wear a hat!'"

Wendie MALICK

"It's just a crap shoot," says Malick of aging well. "It's luck and genes and then, if it's really important to you, working at it. The older you get, the more you have to work at it. Every decade or so I have to do a reevaluation and see what's working and what isn't. A little more exercise, a little less sugar. You have to choose your poison. I'm a pescatarian-I eat fish. I haven't had any poultry or meat in about 22 years."

Tory BURCH

"I think having three boys and three stepdaughters is a big part of staying young," says the red-hot designer. "They definitely keep me active. I also play a lot of tennis and sports in general. I think that's key. And it's also good to keep your mind active. I'm an avid reader. I read everything-books, newspapers, magazines. Being young is how you feel, your outlook and your attitude."

Aisha TYLER

"I don't feel like a grown-up in many ways, and I think that contributes a lot to how you look," says the Talk cohost. "I think I was French in a former life. I love to drink wine; I love to eat good food. Everything in moderation. But I'm not one of those people drinking wheatgrass shots and eating gravel. There's nothing shameful about chocolate. When you're on your deathbed, you're not going to be like, 'I'm so glad I had salad!'"

Kelly PRESTON

"I don't use soap. I wash my face with an organic face wash by Ola, the organic line. I don't wear a base, I don't wear foundation. I think that's huge because when you wear a lot of makeup it tends to dry out your skin and age you. I also use this cream I'm trying to get on the market. It's amazing. I'm working on it with Kirstie Alley. I slather it on at night. It's made with herbs that are not from the U.S. They can't grow them here because the earth is not rich enough."

Madeleine STOWE

"My mother used to say two things: Don't wrinkle your forehead and don't go out in the sun," recalls Stowe. "She fought me on that until I was 18, to the point where it kind of worked! I'm not a manic exercise person. I feel it puts a strain on your body. I try to live a stress-free life as much as possible. It's about trying to find contentment in the moment with the people that you love and being there and laughing, as much as you can. Looking back, I've realized that the times I've felt most beautiful have been when I'm fully immersed and engaged with something I truly love doing."
