Christie Brinkley is celebrating her 65th birthday by teaming up with the makers of Ultherapy to launch the “Milestones of Me” campaign, which aims to encourage women to revel in life’s small and big moments.
“The biggest milestones for me were my three kids. Those were the biggest moments of my life,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle. At 65, the entrepreneur and supermodel looks better than ever, and she credits her “rainbow diet,” children and Ultherapy for helping her look and feel young.
“I was an older mom, but I wanted to be involved in their lives and do things like ski, paddleboard, kayak, play tennis with them,” says Brinkley of how her children influenced her to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. “I think their youthful energy inspires me to take care of myself to be there when they have their babies!”
A balanced diet is also a big part of Brinkley’s approach to wellness. “I am a huge believer in nutrition, and you are what you eat,” she says. “I am a lifelong vegetarian, I eat right, I exercise regularly and have my Total Gym, which I really use and love.”
And when it comes to her anti-aging beauty secret, the supermodel is a big fan of a noninvasive treatment available through dermatologists: Ultherapy.
It is the only FDA-cleared, noninvasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, chin and brow area in addition to improving lines and wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy works by stimulating natural collagen and elastin, without any downtime. “I love the idea of having my body create its own collagen and elastin the way that it used to,” says Brinkley. “When you do Ultherapy and look like the old you, I think it’s reflected in every part of you.”
In addition to annual Ultherapy treatments, staying active and maintaining a vegetarian diet, Brinkley uses her own skin care line to maintain her glowing complexion.
“I am a big proponent of daily exfoliation,” says Brinkley. “This scrub is gentle enough for daily use, and when you add it to your routine you see instant improvement.” She says the benefits are immediate because “it rids skin of dullness so you get an instant glow.”
“My big regret is that I did have a lot of sun exposure,” says Brinkley, who says she texts her daughter Sailor daily to remind her to wear sunscreen. “It’s very important to use sunscreen, especially if it’s safe for the coral reefs.” Brinkley’s full spectrum version is formulated with her proprietary bio-copper complex, which visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles in as little as 15 days.
