Christie Brinkley is the legendary supermodel that still looks amazing at age 62!
In a new interview, Christie has admitted that she uses “a little bit of filler occasionally” to keep her face looking it’s best. Although she favours fillers, the model says botox is definitely something she avoids. Christie recalls a time when she experimented with botox but was left unhappy with the results:
“I tried Botox in the forehead. I’m not a fan. I won’t ever do that again,” she admitted. “I didn’t like the claustrophobic feeling of not being able to do whatever I want with my eyebrows.”
“I grew up in Malibu, then my real job of modeling took me to beaches all over the world and under the sun,” Christie says. “I really am aware of all the sun exposure I’ve had in my life and I’m interested in things that they can do to reverse the sun’s effects.
I’m a model. I want my skin to look its best,” she adds.
While she admits to getting the occasional filler to keep her face looking young, Christie says that’s not the only reason she’s been able to maintain her youthful appearance. The mother of three says:
“Some women on my Instagram will say, ‘Oh, she’s so fake. It’s not her skincare, she gets filler.’ And it’s like, OK, if I only did filler and I didn’t use my Recapture 360 [from her own skincare line], I wouldn’t have the moisturizing, I wouldn’t have that bounce back, it’s the whole thing,” she explains. “You have to take care of the texture of your skin.”
What you eat is just as important as what you put on your skin and the model definitely watches what goes into her mouth.
“I try to be as vegan as I can be … I try to keep it mainly to the mozzarella now,” she says. “Occasionally I feel like I need a little piece of salmon. I will occasionally eat oysters. I think that there’s nothing like a great oyster and a little glass of prosecco. But other than that, it’s a vegetable-based diet with lots of greens and quinoa and some couscous.”
“How you eat and how you exercise, these all play a tremendous role in how you feel, and therefore, how you look,” she added. “And a smile will give your face an instant lift and it also releases endorphins.”
Christie Brinkley is currently dating rock star and music legend John Mellencamp. They went public with their relationship in 2015.
