Actress Sofia Vergara is absolutely gorgeous.

And plans to stay that way.

The 51-year-old recently told People Magazine that she does not plan to let her looks fade.

Vergara’s Beauty Secrets

The “Modern Family” actress declared that as far as aging goes, “I’m going to fight it every step of the way!”

“I feel great. I know I don’t look the same,” she said. “But I don’t think I am going to ever be the woman that has the courage to be, like, all-white hair.”

Vergara admitted she had tried just about every beauty treatment you could imagine.

‘”I’ve done it all. I mean, you tell me to put cement under your eye, you’re going to look younger, I’ll do it immediately. I do it all,” she said.

Vergara went on to talk about her beauty secrets, exercise, her sugar addiction and why she won’t cut her hair.

“It’s like I put coconut oil on my head. I put it on my feet,” Vergara said. “I’ve wrapped myself in plastic with Aquaphor up to the neck. I’ll do it. I don’t care. It’s not stupid.”

She revealed that her top beauty secret is easy: Sleep!

“I take sleeping seriously now. Before, I could survive on six hours, now I know that I don’t look good if I don’t sleep more,” she said.

Vergara said if she’s working, she wakes up early to avoid puffiness around the eyes.

“Our job as actors, it’s not like, put your glasses on, and go pick up your kid at school or go and sit in a desk,” she explained. “You have to be camera-ready and do your job. But it takes longer now that I’m older.”

When it comes to her hair, Vergara said, “I wash my hair every single day of my life. I mean, unless I’m sick or I have to catch a plane at 3 in the morning, then I don’t have time. But I wash my hair every day. Everybody always told me it’s going to ruin your hair, and it never has.”

Vergara’s Hair And Exercising

As for her hair length…

“In Latin America, I mean they used to tell you that once you hit 40, you’re not supposed to have this crazy long hair. So I’m always thinking like, “Is it time? Is it time to cut it?” I don’t know, I don’t want to feel like old-fashioned [with] short hair,” she admitted.

On her exercise regimen, Vergara said, “I have bad knees, so I’ve never been really into crazy workouts. I’ve worked out kind of like an older person my whole life. I do little weights like this [she curls up her arm], but I am constant. I do it often because I can’t do spinning or any of those sexy exercises now.”

Born in Colombia, she explained, “I think because I’m Latin, we always grow up thinking about looking good, doing your hair, your makeup. It’s something that makes you feel good. I love beauty products. I love makeup, I love clothes. And I think now that I’m older, it’s great, because you know exactly what you like, what looks good on you, what doesn’t look good on you. I don’t do what is in fashion.”

“I just do what feels good, makes me feel confident and beautiful,” she added.

And please… keep doing you, Sofia Vergara.
