I'm 59 but am told I look younger. I've never smoked, rarely drink alcohol, but I do drink a lot of water. I live in the Southwest in a very sunny, dry climate so keeping hydrated is a necessity of life, not just to keep the wrinkles away.
I do have wrinkles, but I regard them as part of aging. I would never, never, never have botox or plastic surgery. I'm not that vain or narcissistic. I know women who've had botox treatments and/or facelifts, and while their faces look younger, the rest of them, from the neck down, looks old. Their necks are crepey, their arms & hands are wrinkly and have age spots, their legs aren't toned and sag a little. You are only fooling yourself if you think that a facelift or botox is going to make you look that much better.
And, botox, collagen injections and facelifts can go wrong. Just think about celebrities like Joan Rivers, who looks awful, Lissa Rinna with her lumpy lips, and countless other celebrities who have that "deer in the headlights" look (constantly surprised), or can no longer smile or make any kind of facial expressions. The only people who think they look better/younger are themselves.
Personally, I admire women who accept their age and are able to age gracefully without resorting to artificial ways of looking younger. I'd rather see Susan Sarandon or Judi Dench than the likes of Pamela Anderson, Janice Dickenson, Priscilla Presley, and others like them.
