Fit and fabulous at 61, we take a look at Christie Brinkley’s beauty, diet and exercise secrets.

Now 40 years later at the age of 61, Brinkley continues to embody the quintessential ‘all-American’ look, with her honey blonde locks, toned limbs and mega watt smile. The stunning mother, entrepreneur and model seems to be getting better with age, starring alongside her 16-year-old daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook in the latest Peter Alexander sleepwear campaign for Mother’s Day.

Her apparent ability to defy ageing has led many to wonder if she has discovered the fountain of youth, but with a little digging we have uncovered a few of her secrets.

Exfoliating is key

In an interview with Extra, Brinkley explains, “I read articles about why men always look five years younger than women. It’s because shaving gives them a daily exfoliation.”

She has since created her own skincare line, Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare, and relies on the Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish to leave her skin looking refreshed and radiant.

Always wear sunscreen

Brinkley loves spending time outdoors, but never leaves the house without sunscreen as it has helped preserve her skin’s youthful appearance.

Go vegetarian. Brinkley credits her vegetarian, sometimes vegan, diet for helping maintain that youthful glow and slim physique.

Regular Exercise

Having always led an active lifestyle, Brinkley continues to stick to a regular fitness regime that includes yoga, cycling and swimming in order to stay toned and flexible.
