At age 41, Ana Roces has retained her youthful looks.
Her fair skin remains smooth, and she pretty much looks as she was in her younger years.
The mestiza actress is still visible after almost three decades in showbiz.
Currently, she is part of the ABS-CBN daytime teleserye, Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin, top-billed by Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson.
This That’s Entertainment alumna is also a very hands-on mom to a 13-year-old daughter and a seven-year-old son, a devoted housewife, and a mentor on professional development/corporate image.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Ana revealed her secrets to staying young and healthy.
Her ageless appearance is simply the by-product of her healthy lifestyle, she revealed.
“I wake up early every day, so I sleep early.
“I sleep at least eight to nine hours a day, except pag may taping ako.
“But when I’m taping, it's long hours, I make sure pag di ko eksena, I sleep.”
As important, “I don’t drink; zero alcohol, no smoking, never.
“It’s really healthy lifestyle.”
PEP.ph interviewed Ana at the Golden Fiesta Canola Oil Heart Healthy Camp Celebrity edition last November 26, in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
The star of the '80s and '90s decades said she has no special diet, “Everything in moderation, walang special diet."
Although she admitted she also has cheat days.
“I also shifted to brown rice, wheat bread, less fatty meats, more on tuna, chicken.
"I also eat beef, pero lean. I try to eat healthy.”
She is physically active and engages in workouts fit for her.
“I exercise. I do Zumba. I dance two to three times a week.
“I also work out with light weights. Kasi nga when you age, we lose our muscles.”
She added that she also treats herself to facial treatments and firming treatments for her face.
