Kathy Chow’s (周海媚) popularity peaked in Asia following her portrayal of Zhou Zhiruo in the 1994 Taiwanese adaptation of Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre <倚天屠龍記>.
Twenty years later, the 48-year-old Kathy reprised her role as Zhou Zhiruo for a Mainland Chinese program, astonishing everyone with her ageless beauty.
It is hard to believe that 20 years have passed, reports Jayne Stars. Time seems to have stood still for Kathy, who has not aged at all.
On the Chinese program Fei Chang Jing Ju Li <非常靜距離>, Kathy was asked about how she was able to maintain her ageless beauty for over twenty years. Kathy responded simply, “The best way to stay beautiful is to stop stressing.”
A combination of good genes and a healthy lifestyle helped Kathy stay young and beautiful. Kathy admits she is actually a very lazy person when it comes to her skincare routine.
“When I’m working, I would apply a facial mask once every two days. When I’m not, I would only apply one if I remember. Normally, I would just put on toner before I go to bed. However, I’m careful not to put on too much sunscreen. I am afraid that it would block my pores.”
Kathy said eating habits are also very important. Kathy has been drinking a lot of homemade soup from her mother. During the winter season, she would drink more herbal soup. In the summer, Kathy would concentrate on consuming more detox soups to cleanse her body.
Kathy eats three meals a day, emphasizing breakfast is the most important meal. “I usually eat a Western-style breakfast, including coffee. During the summer season, I would exchange that for lemon honey water.”
Currently residing in Beijing, Kathy said her reason for staying in Mainland China is because of her architect boyfriend, Mr. Liu. Though the couple has been together for over 10 years, Kathy has no intentions to get married. “I don’t want kids, so I find [marriage] unnecessary.”
