Getaway host Catriona Rowntree shares the secrets behind her ageless complexion as she turns 50

Getaway host Catriona Rowntree has revealed her age-defying secrets, as she celebrates her 50th birthday – and they include a daily teaspoon of olive oil to help her ‘glow’.

The TV presenter – who has hosted Getaway for 25 years – has barely changed since she arrived on our TV screens over two decades ago.

She credits her age-defying look with a can-do attitude, daily sunscreen and a healthy diet filled with plenty of wholefoods, fruit and veg and a teaspoon of olive oil.

Catriona also uses several multi-tasking products including a compact with SPF in it to make sure that while she may allow her body to tan a little bit, her face never even has a freckle.

Catriona posted on her Instagram account on Monday, writing: ‘It’s my birthday!

‘It’s a biggie, so I’m choosing to begin this new decade with the mantra “I choose to soar”.

‘Literally, I am learning to fly! My heart is in my mouth as I share this with you, I’ve a story to share, which I will later, for now, I’m putting it out there, I’m beginning my flight journey with Recreational Aviation Australia.’

She added: ‘I’m beyond excited and look forward to sharing this experience with you’.

The 50-year-old has made a habit of stepping outside of her comfort zone over the years, and credits this trait among other things as one of the reasons why she stays looking young.

‘My fat cheeks [are a big contributor to looking young],’ Catriona previously told the Sydney Morning Herald.

‘Fat cheeks that I inherited from my nan. These fat cheeks have held me in good stead.’

Catriona likes to eat a healthy, natural diet filled with plenty of wholefoods and dark green leafy vegetables from her family’s farm. 

The 50-year-old also has a ‘spoonful of olive oil’ every single day, as she once learned that this can help to improve the glow of your skin. 

‘I take collagen daily, guzzle the water, consume olive oil whenever possible and moisturise the neck, the décolletage, and tops of hands,’ Catriona told Marie Claire.

‘My skin has always been sensitive, so I’m thrilled I can use serums which I also now add to my foundation for extra glow. The Clarins Double Serum works wonders for me and I also love their Face Treatment Oils. I love the scent.’

She also religiously applies Lanolips Lip Balm in order to keep her lips supple and moisturised.

Previously, Catriona posted on Instagram about her love for a $19.95 Australian Jojoba Oil by The Jojoba Co, saying she uses the natural product on her face, neck and sometimes her body to create a dewy natural look.

‘A little shout out for this wonderful Aussie-owned company,’ she said.

‘They farm this remarkable product in the Riverina area of New South Wales.

‘It’s not an oil, it’s actually a liquid wax ester, brilliant for those of us with sensitive skin.’

Catriona added that she uses the product whenever she wants to create a ‘glow’ on her face and pairs it with the Body Oil by the same brand to get smooth, silky legs when filming.

‘Their products work really well for people like me with very sensitive skin,’ she said. ‘It is lovely for a glow.’

Finally, she never has more than two cups of coffee per day, and if she wants another hot drink, she will always switch to chamomile tea.
