Age-defying secrets: “My faith in God and a positive attitude are what keep me radiant. I also have a skin care regimen that consists of exfoliating, hydrating and applying sunblock. I eat small meals throughout the day, and I walk regularly.”

Wise words: “I grew up in a family that gave to their community. It’s natural for me to do the same. I volunteer with Dress for Success and Martha’s Table. I’m going to help whomever I can.”

When she isn’t working or spending time with her beloved daughter, she volunteers for Dress For Success.
“I love to wardrobe these women, and I always tell them how important it is to take care of their skin, to protect their faces and bodies with sun block.”

She’s not interested in the gym, but she pays a lot of attention to her eating habits.
“I eat small meals throughout the day, I stop eating before I’m full and I don’t eat after 7 P.M., says Johnson. Diabetes runs on both sides of her family, so she’s very conscientious of what she puts into her mouth.

Johnson is also quite the beauty maven, never skipping her morning and evening face-care routine. She swears by Olay Regenerist.
“This is the most effective product I’ve ever used.”
