Christie Brinkley has been on the cover of hundreds of magazines, and a CoverGirl for over 25 years. The mother of 3 has been admired for her all-American looks, and healthy life style, for years. Now, in her 60s, she looks better than ever! Brinkley recently debuted her newest project, the Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Collection: an eco-friendly, vegan skincare line that launched on HSN this month. Yahoo recently sat down with Christie to discuss how she maintains perfection at her age.
When asked what motivated her to develop this line, Christie was pretty quick to answer, saying “I was looking around for skincare products and I wasn’t finding exactly what I wanted.” She mentioned that she had worked with people in the past to create a beauty line, but was not completely thrilled with the product. A few years later, she has found a group of people who shared in her passion for eco-friendly and vegan products, and she finally was able to develop a line she is proud to put her name on.
Christie was asked which product in her Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare line she considered a must have and she replied by choosing the Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare: RECAPTURE 360 + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream. “I wanted our day cream to really multi-task. It’s a fab anti-ager. And I wanted it to be a great sunblock and also a base for when I’m working as a model. It’s all those things.” She also touts the products ability to protect the skin from heat emitting devices that we use in everyday life, such as phones and computers, saying “And then our dermatologist Dr. Doris Day was able to go beyond my dreams when she told me about developing something to protect us from infrared rays: it protects our skin from all the heat emitting devices we’re surrounded by, like cell phones or microwaves or laptop screens.”
There is no denying that this cover girl looks stunning, and luckily for us, she credits her graceful aging to a lot more than genetics!
