She’s a former supermodel, a mom of two and the founder of the age-defying skin-care brand Meaningful Beauty, but even Cindy Crawford experiences the effects of aging—or so she claims.
In a recent interview with The Cut, Crawford admitted she’s well aware that she’s not the 25-year-old model she once was. She said, “Sometimes I say for a shoot as I get older, ‘Look, guys, I have no idea what I’ll look like when I get up. I’ll wake up at 6, but I’m just saying you won’t want to shoot the close-up until after 9.’”
Crawford went on to reveal that she’s learned to accept her maturity and, in turn, embrace her changing appearance. She continued, “Everything changes: your skin, your hair and your body. I take care of myself, but I know that I’m a 51-year-old woman. I want to do my job well, and I want to deliver, but I also know that what I have to offer now is different from what I had to offer at 25.”
But that’s easier said than done, considering her daughter, Kaia Gerber, isn’t afraid to flaunt the flawless genes she inherited from her mom. Crawford added, “I have pillow lines that last so much longer now. Kaia can wake up and even if she’s puffy from having sushi the night before, her face goes back to normal in 15 minutes. For me, I wouldn’t even eat that now because it would take the whole day for it to go down.”
FWIW, we’d be OK looking like puffy, post-sushi Cindy any day of the week.
