Like all of the original supers, Christy Turlington has maintained a youthful glow that can only come from worldly experience…and an amazing facialist. But unlike her fellow colleagues, not mentioning names, (Cindy Crawford) she embraced the ageing process and even welcomes it, declaring “everyone is so anti-ageing, but I don’t want to look younger than I am. Our face is a map of our life; the more that’s there, the better.”
In a society so determined to freeze the hands of time, and their foreheads, it’s a refreshing outlook on the concept of beauty from the mother of two. Crediting a love of yoga, organic food and a holistic approach to wellbeing, the results of Christy’s beauty choices can be seen through the decades of flawless images still gracing the pages of magazines today.
