Liz Hurley, 55, swears off sunbaking after major bikini 'regret'

She may own her own swimwear brand and be known for her amazing bikini selfies on Instagram but you won’t find Liz Hurley sunbaking on the beach.

The 55-year-old, who in August was called the ‘most beautiful woman in the world’ by fans, after posting a bikini photo to her Instagram account, said she has a major regret about lying in the sun in the past.

“I regret ever sunbathing and now use SPF30 and wear a big sun hat” she told Grazia.

“I've lost count of how many of my contemporaries have had cancerous cells removed.”

Liz went on to say that she has been working for Estée Lauder for the past 25 years and she swears by their Advanced Night Repair Serum.

She’s also recently invested in a Fitbit and said she’s “manic” about hitting 10,000 steps per day.

The actress and model also called lockdown “liberating” because she “didn’t constantly check emails and panic about deadlines”.

Indeed, isolation seemed to suit Liz, who sent jaws dropping in May when she posted a racy topless snap to her Instagram page.

In the snap, she was holding Clinique’s $45 SPF 50 sunscreen in the photo, sending a positive sun safety message that her youthful skin is sure to hammer home.
