Lucy Turnbull shares tips on growing older gracefully as she celebrates 60th birthday

She may be the Prime Minister’s wife, but Lucy Turnbull is well known in her own right – as Sydney’s former Lord Mayor and philanthropist.

According to Whimn, Lucy had genuine anxiety when she turned 35.

‘Each one [decade] has its particular advantages,’ Mrs Turnbull said. ‘Though in one sense I would like to be 35 again, at the time I was much more anxious about turning 35 than I am about turning 60.’

In terms of how she keeps herself feeling young, the truth lies in her day-to-day skincare and exercise selections.

‘Don’t panic about aging. Only worry about things you can do something about,’ she advises.

‘I try to stay healthy through sensible lifestyle choices, getting enough sleep, exercise – walking, yoga, indoor gym work. Keep out of the sun and have sun protection.’

She reminds people who are still in their 20s to embrace positivity and always perceive the glass as ‘half full’.

‘[Style is] intangible, an X-factor, but I think I know it when I see it. It may have as much to do with what you do as how you look. Often confident achievers shine without trying, while others who’ve spent a fortune on clothes look like fashion victims,’ Mrs Turnbull told Vogue previously.

‘I’m not at all obsessed with how I look, but I have a couple of basic rules.
