Good Morning America celebrated Christie Brinkley’s 61st birthday earlier this year by naming her one of America’s most sexy women!
Brinkley, who recently developed her own skincare line, Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare, shared a few of her tips to aging gracefully.
Don’t eat meat: Brinkley decided to become a vegetarian when she was 13. “I said, ‘I love animals. I don’t want to be part of that system,'” she explained.
Splurge: Sometimes, Brinkley admits, she’ll break her vegan diet. “Life is too short to not have oysters and champagne.”
Never skip exfoliation: “In the beginning of my career I read an article about the reason that men always look five years younger than women is because they shave. It said that the daily exfoliation from shaving gives them that rapid cell turnover and keeps their skin glowing and looking so great,” she said, adding that she ran out and bought an exfoliator. She has been a fan ever since and now has her own Christie Brinkley Skin Care: Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish.
Don’t listen to your haters: “Adopting a really positive attitude can work wonders to adding years to your life, a spring to your step, a sparkle to your eye, and all of that,” says Brinkley.
Focus on how you feel, not how you look: “When you feel great you emanate a certain energy that translates as beautiful,” Brinkley says. “I don’t care if you have the standard beauty or not, it’s that X-factor that comes through, and the basis of that is good health.”
