In 2014 the screen icon told The Times she was considering cosmetic surgery 'very, very soon' but has always been vocal about her natural approach to beauty.
Speaking to Femail in 2016, Helen admitted she regularly goes make-up free, explaining:
'The irony is that - the older you get - the less you care. I think: 'God, when I was young, and probably had much better skin, I wouldn't dream of going out without mascara.' Now I really don't mind.

Looking fab: Helen insisted she was OLDER than she actually is when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday
'I mean, if you're taking your dog for a walk at eight in the morning it doesn't really matter.'
Speaking on her appointment as the spokesperson for L'Oreal (and becoming one of the oldest faces of a major cosmetics brand in the process) Helen has previously admitted she asked for 'minimal retouching' in her campaign images.
'In all honesty. I don't think I said: 'Absolutely no retouching. I said: 'Minimal - the absolute least we can do.' Because sometimes a hair is sticking up or there's a shadow.
So chic: The screen icon looked gorgeous with a touch of lippie, blush and eye makeup in coordinating shades
'But I did not want that overly smooth face that's hardly recognisable. I've been retouched in movie posters and I look at it and go: 'Well, it's all very well, I look kind of great, but, it's not me at all. It's some construct up there.' '
Meanwhile Helen insisted she was OLDER than she actually is when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday.
Host Ellen complimented her, saying: 'You're not shy about saying your age, you're 72...' Helen interrupted saying, '73' as the audience clapped.
'Wow, when did you turn 73? Are you sure?' the confused host asked.

'I think I'm 73,' the silver-haired beauty replied, explaining that she and her director husband Taylor Hackford are just six months apart in age and they're always trying to work out how old they are.
'Well anyway, this year we thought he was 74, which would make me 73.'
When a voice off stage confirmed her age, the delighted star replied: 'I'm 72, this is fantastic. I've just made a whole year. Wow!'
A smiling Ellen pointed out: 'Yeah, you've gotten younger being here.' But she couldn't resist jokingly adding: 'You look great but you're losing it.'

Helen was joined at Thursday's premiere of her new movie by fashionable socialite Olivia Palermo, who bundled up in a black feathery coat which also included a band of colored feathers.
Under that, she layered a black button up shirt sporting a white collar.
Black leather trousers showed off her toned limbs, and complemented her black pointed-toe booties.
Her lone accessory was a small black leather purse that she carried in her left hand.

Donald and Helen play a runaway couple in the movie, going on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call The Leisure Seeker, travelling from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West.
