At age 44, most models seem to quietly fade into the background. But then there is Cindy Crawford, who continues to put the super back in supermodel!
The gorgeous brunette recently stopped by the Glendale Galleria in California, to launch her Meaningful Beauty skin care line at Sephora inside JCPenney. That means her successful skin care items can now be bought in a dept. store, rather than through the website or following an infomercial.
A huge line snaked through the Gelndale Galleria to meet and hear what the ageless mom of two had to say about beauty and the value of her skin care line, Meaningful Beauty. Her best beauty advice to the adoring crowd: Do NOT smoke.
Great advice, and we have more smart beauty tips from Cindy Crawford that we've collected:
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.
