Sonia Kruger is known for her ageless beauty and healthy lifestyle. And the 56-year-old admitted this week she loves to ‘defy her age’ in a sponsored Instagram post for an anti-ageing serum.‘I’ll never deny my age but I’d like to defy it,’ she said while holding a bottle of L’Oréal’s Age Perfect Midnight Serum.
‘It’s been leaving my skin smoother, firmer & more radiant!’ she gushed. A number of Sonia’s celebrity pals left comments complimenting her good looks on the post, including Kylie Gillies, Keira Maguire, Cherry Dipietrantonio and more.Back in February, Sonia admitted that her own mother and brother can barely recognise her when she’s in full makeup for TV appearances.
Speaking to Stellar magazine, the star said that she got a rude awakening after showing her mum Margaret a before-and-after TikTok video she’d filmed of herself getting glammed up for work. ‘I was loving myself sick in the “after” shot, but my mother’s reaction was weird,’ she admitted.
‘She just kept saying, “That doesn’t look like you,” at which point my brother piped up with, “That’s because this is how she really looks and that’s Television Sonia.”‘This isn’t the first time that Sonia has shocked people with her natural beauty compared to her TV glam.
In 2019, she told the Daily Telegraph that her colleagues are often ‘shocked’ by her natural appearance. ‘I have seen people when I’ve had to run out and get something and they have a look of absolute shock and horror on their face when they see me,’ she said.
The star explained that she rarely wears makeup when she’s not working, adding that she has ‘forgotten’ how to put it on herself. Sonia acknowledged that when she does try and put makeup on herself, it’s never as good as when the professionals do it. The TV personality is currently busy hosting The Voice and Dancing With The Stars: All Stars.
