The 42-year-old has maintained her youthful looks for years and has often been asked how she does it.From clear skin to a fit body, the former musician doesn’t look a day over 30.

She is now a new mom and in addition to be the face of Ponds she has also been named this year’s host for The Gauteng Summer Cup happening on 30 November 2019 at the Turfontein Racecourse in Johannesburg. 

Speaking to Drum about her beauty secrets, Thembi admits that it hasn’t been easy but went on to share five tips that have helped her to stay looking fabulous. 

1. Working out

“I have always tried to take care of myself by working out almost every day. Sometimes I don’t have time for the gym, but I always try to use the stairs whenever I can, to keep my legs in shape. But shedding the baby-fat has not been easy, it has taken me a lot of discipline and healthy eating.” 

2. Drinking water

“People think that it's just a myth but drinking water every day helps to keep my skin glowing. And of course, where would I be without my Pond’s age miracle wrinkle correcting serum mask?” 

3. Not worrying

“Minding my own business and staying in my lane is another secret to longevity. We are all human, but I try not to worry too much about what people say and think of me. Focus on your mental health, prayer and be grateful for what you have.” 

4. Be playful

“I am a child at heart. I am very playful and fun. Smiling and being playful keeps me motivated and youthful.”

 5. Stay away from alcohol

“A glass of wine or the occasional glass of champagne does not hurt. But staying away from drinking alcohol and not smoking has helped me.”
