"I'm so excited to continue the conversation because learning that you can age well, will actually help you age better," she wrote alongside a gorgeous selfie in which she chose to go show off her radiant complexion by going make-up free, posing alongside a copy of her new book The Longevity Book.
She added: "If you understand how your body works then you can take action to help keep it in the best possible condition so it can carry you through a long and beautiful life. Read my full post at www.OurBodyBook.com @thebodybook #linkinprofile #longevitybook #knowledgeispower #everyoneages."
Cameron also took to her website Our Body Book to re-iterate the importance of "living an engaged life" in a lengthy post where she added that her fans should focus on being confident rather than trying to fit specific beauty ideals.

"So let's start celebrating and living an engaged life, and stop punishing ourselves for not looking a certain way," she wrote. "And instead holding ourselves accountable for actually taking care of ourselves inside first, knowing the results on the exterior will be a shining side effect. Choose to be informed, choose to be healthy and happy."
She added: "My biggest hope for you is that you get to grow old."
It's not the first time that Cameron has encouraged her fans to embrace getting older. As part of the launch of The Longevity Book, the actress started a social media campaign in which she asked fans to share their own no make-up selfie, with the possibility of the snaps being included in the cover of her latest publication.
To kick off the movement, Cameron herself posted a gorgeous close-up snap in which she wowed with her radiant complexion and world-famous smile.
