The White House released an image of Melania Trump on her birthday, sitting alone on a sofa in the Oval Office surrounded by a barrage of photographers. The caption simply read: “Happy Birthday Flotus!” While the picture itself has raised a few eyebrows, some others are wondering what her secret is.
According to Melania Trump, there is no secret youth elixir, artificial or otherwise.
Speaking to GQ in 2016 while her husband was campaigning for the presidency, Mrs Trump revealed the fastidious care she takes of her body.
She revealed walking daily with ankle weight, eating no less than seven pieces of fruit, and diligently caring for her skin.
She’s never been a big partier, even in her younger days as a model in New York, and firmly denies any claims of plastic surgery.
She said: “I didn’t make any changes. A lot of people say I am using all the procedures for my face.
“I didn’t do anything. I live a healthy life, I take care of my skin and my body.
“I’m against Botox, I’m against injections; I think it’s damaging your face, damaging your nerves.
“It’s all me. I will age gracefully, as my mom does.”
She also revealed, speaking to Refinery 29, that she does indulge now and again.
She said: “I don’t have a particular snack I always eat.
“If I would snack, I would snack on maybe fruit or a little bit of chocolate, because I think your body needs that, too.”
But she revealed she doesn’t follow any one diet or strict way of eating.
She said: “It’s not a diet, I just like to eat healthy because I feel better and have more energy.”
Mrs Trump keeps in shape with Pilates home practice mostly, according to E! News.
And her final secret of the day is to wash your face before bed.
Mrs Trump said: “I never go to sleep before washing my makeup off. I really nurture my skin at night.”
