There's a lot of buzz these days about 43-year-old Cindy Crawford nude in the April issue of Allure magazine.
And the famous former model is revealing some smart anti-aging beauty tips. We say 'smart,' because Cindy Crawford is. She wasn't the high school valedictorian for nothing. Beauty and brains....a lethal combination.
Cindy Crawford has always been an intelligent woman. She has admitted she was never the tiny size 2 model floating down the runways. She kept in shape, but never let the ultra-skinny model philosophy dominate her lifestyle. She has mentioned being a size 6 and at times a size 8.
In other words---healthy skinny. A model with curves. How refreshing!
The photos in the April issue of Allure are quite stunning. Cindy Crawford proves at 40-something, it ain't over yet, ladies. And she's a mom of two.
We adored reading Cindy Crawford's smart, anti-aging beauty tips. We've included part of Allure's interview:
ALLURE: How do you feel about your age, in general?
CINDY CRAWFORD: I think I look pretty good for 43. But I don't look the way I did when I was 23. So if Star magazine or whatever wants to print a picture of me on the beach from the back, at the worst possible angle, and say that I have cellulite, I'm like, Guess what? I do, and I never said I didn't. I've had two kids, and I'm 43, so leave me alone.
ALLURE: How do you take care of your skin?
CINDY CRAWFORD: I use a day cream with antioxidants and sunscreen, a night cream, and an eye cream.I do masks once a week, and I get microdermabrasion once a month. I'm pretty diligent with microdermabrasion because I've noticed a big difference in the texture of my skin from it. Basically, I take care of myself, but I don't want to be obsessive, and I don't want to not like who I am today. I'm all for fighting the good fight, but I don't care how much you work out or how much cream you put on-things change.
ALLURE: Are there any areas you take particularly good care of?
CINDY CRAWFORD: My hands and my décolleté. In L.A., there are 65-year-old women walking around in Juicy sweatpants, and from the back, you'd think they were 20. But when you see their hands or their neck, you know. When I put moisturizer on my face, I use a little extra so that I have enough to cover my hands. Most people don't start caring about the décolleté until it's too late, but I'm religious about it.
ALLURE: Do you try to keep your hair young looking?
CINDY CRAWFORD: Color is the most important factor. You can get any plastic surgery in the world, but hair color is what enables women to look younger longer. I've also become more aware of hair health. I stay away from razor cuts because they can make my hair look frizzy, and I give myself a hair treatment while I'm in my sauna to keep it conditioned.
