Okay, so not all of the women we see and envy on the silver screen got their flawless skin from good genes alone – many enlist the aid of the world’s best dermatologists, the most expensive treatments and, on top of that, they’re usually airbrushed anyway – all things the everyday woman can’t plausibly hope to have access to in this or any other lifetime.
Then again, there’s Christie Brinkley, whose age-defying skin has nabbed her a role in the Broadway musical Chicago as 25-year-old Roxie Hart – at the age of 57! Wanna know this cougar’s secret?
According to Allure.com, Brinkley’s skincare guru Patricia Wexler dished on some of her best-kept secrets, which aren’t really secrets at all, but are more like common sense health practices that everyone should follow. Brinkley religiously wears sunscreen, eats a good diet, exercises regularly and keeps the drinking down to maybe a glass after dinner, if that.
That being said, some of us can be bonafide health nuts and still not be blessed with skin like Christie’s. For a little help in the beauty department, stock up on high quality skincare products and stick to a regular routine. Choose cleanser, toner, moisturizer and any additional supplements and serums based on your skin type and individual needs.
