Ahlan! assesses which A-listers are turning back time – and which are fighting a losing battle!

The winners!

Angelina Jolie
Age
: 34
Beauty secret:Caviar facials.
Ange reportedly gets regular Dhs1,500 caviar facials, which claim to tighten slackened skin and fight loss of firmness.

Michelle Pfeiffer
Age:
51
Beauty secret:Relaxed attitude.
“I’ve spent most of my life not thinking about my looks and it has served me really well,” says Michelle.

Halle Berry
Age:
42
Beauty secret:Motherhood.
“My skin is aglow… I like being a mother... I feel sexier and am in a comfortable state of being now,” says Halle, who also uses skin-smoothing Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum.

Sandra Bullock
Age:
44
Beauty secret:Hemorrhoid cream.
“I didn’t realise that putting hemorrhoid ointment on your face is acceptable in the beauty business,” admits Sandra. “But… it does help with lines around the eyes.”

Gwyneth Paltrow
Age:
36
Beauty secret:Prenatal vitamins
“It doesn’t matter if you are pregnant, I swear to god. I have double-processed blond hair, and it’s so long and not damaged,” says Gwyn, who still takes her pregnancy vitamins.

Kate Winslet
Age:
33
Beauty secret:Bargain beauty buys.
Kate favours simple high street finds for her face – claiming to never spend more than Dhs300 on products.

The losers!

Pamela Anderson
Age:
41
Culprit:Party lifestyle.
She can’t resist a bad boy, but years of hard-partying with ex hubbies Tommy Lee and Kid Rock have caught up with the former pin-up.

Madonna
Age
: 50
Culprit:Over-exercise.
Her exhausting two-hours-a-day gym addiction has left Madge with hollowed out cheeks and dark circles under her eyes.

Teri Hatcher
Age:
44
Culprit:Drastic dieting.
Under pressure to keep her figure Hollywood-slim, Teri’s face is beginning to suffer as a result of her strict diet.

Brooke Hogan
Age:
21
Culprit:Sun-damage.
Beach babe Brooke has caught one too many rays of California sunshine – she looks the same age as her mum, Linda!

Fergie
Age:
34
Culprit:Too much surgery?
Though she denies plastic surgery, Fergie’s odd puffy features suggest otherwise.

Katie Holmes
Age:
30
Culprit:Smoking.
Former smoker Katie is reportedly back on the cigs as she struggles to cope with stress caused by her marriage crisis and career woes.

Jennifer Love Hewitt
Age:
30
Culprit:Bad stylist!
Frumpy polo neck, drooping bust and ageing highlights – J-Love’s granny look is doing her no favours!
