  • Christie Brinkley, 66, just shared a glowy no-makeup look on Instagram.

  • She keeps her skin looking wrinkle-free by exfoliating her face every day.

  • She also uses gentle cleansers at night and eats a mostly plant-based diet.

Model and actress Christie Brinkley, 66, is making the most of her summer at home by enjoying her blooming garden. And, if her latest no-makeup Instagram photos are any indication, she's looking naturally gorgeous while she's at it.

"Summery Day in the Garden.🌱🌸🌼🌻🐝🐓🍇🍆🍅," she captioned the slideshow of pics in her garden, which included plants, flowers, a chicken and a pup. In two of the photos, Christie is showing off her glowy, flawless skin while wearing a straw hat.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model shared with Byrdie that she keeps things pretty simple when it comes to her skincare.

"I start every day by exfoliating my face. That’s something I’ve done for the past 40 years. I feel like it’s really contributed to my skin feeling fresh and smooth," Christie told the publication. "Forty years ago, I read an article that said men always look five years younger than women who are their same age. They contributed that to them shaving every day, and the daily exfoliating with shaving their skin makes them look younger."

Christie also shared that she uses the Authentic Skin Care Closeup Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment from her skincare line called Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare. "The whole line was modeled after the skincare ritual I already have," she told Byrdie.

Plus, Christie shared her nighttime skin routine with W Magazine. "At night I use my daily gentle cleaners to wash off my makeup and for the eyes use Andrea Eye Q’s eye-makeup-remover wipes, the oils again, and then lastly my Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Treatment to work with the biorhythms of my body while I sleep," she said.

Christie's glow also comes from the inside out with her mainly plant-based diet. "I’m practically a lifelong vegetarian—I became one when I was about 13 or 14 years old. My diet is plant-based," she told Byrdie. "I’ve raised my kids on what I call the 'rainbow diet.' I want as many colors as possible. These are all the ingredients that do wonderful things to your skin. The deep green, the leafy greens, the purples in the skin of the grapes, which produce all the antioxidants and vitamins you get from a colorful, rich diet like that."
