Nigella Lawson Is Unrecognizable In Throwback Photo

British author and celebrity chef Nigella Lawson is well known for her body-positive attitude and outspoken feelings on airbrushing and photoshop, according to Today. In 2018, the beauty criticized American television and media for slimming her down during photo shoots, saying, "The hatred of fat, and assumption that we'd all be grateful to be airbrushed thinner is pernicious." 

Recently, Lawson participated in the social media "Me at 20" challenge and posted a very youthful photograph of herself at age 23 that had fans clamoring for beauty tips and her skincare routine.

The photo posted by Lawson was taken 37 years ago and prompted fans to jokingly ask for the "recipe" to her graceful aging, as while some aspects of her appearance have changed, the celebrity chef still sports glowing skin and a radiant appearance. IMDb notes Lawson was born in January of 1960, which would make her 60 years old when she posted the throwback photo for her fans to enjoy.

The Cut proclaimed Nigella Lawson the "winner" of the "me at 20" photo challenge, thanking other participants and jesting that the entries are now closed. According to The Daily Mail, Lawson has long been forced to take a stand on the topic of aging and beauty, stating that she felt she, along with so many other women, was conditioned to believe she should feel shame about becoming older. The outlet claims Lawson said, on feeling embarrassed or lying about her age, she "knew it was something I had to resist."

In a 2018 Q&A session in London, Nigella Lawson shared two beauty tricks, as reported by The Sun. The star stated that she used silicone gloves designed for dishwashing to exfoliate her skin, and she cut back significantly on drinking alcohol, which she confessed was mostly to help control her anxiety. Good Housekeeping shared Lawson's affordable make-up routine as well, claiming that she swears by UK brand Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara, Charlotte Tilbury concealer, and IT Cosmetics CC cream.
