Christie Brinkley Launches Skincare Line, Gives Us All Hope

Christie Brinkley is 61. I’ll let that sink in first.

When I think of the original Cover Girl, it brings back all kinds of memories from my childhood, namely that she was an all-American vision of sunkissed blonde hair, long, flawless skin, golden limbs and that megawatt smile—none of which have quit after more than 40 years and 500 magazine covers.

It’s safe to say that genetics *might* be on her side but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to sit up and start schmearing with abandon when she launches a skincare line.

Launching on HSN on March 5, Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare was created to keep us looking as fresh-faced as the supermodel. The line features this fascinating proprietary BIO-COPPER Complex (copper is all the rage these days), to support skin’s anti-aging defenses for smoother, firmer, healthier and younger looking skin. Christie also collaborated with celebrity derm Dr. Doris Day to develop products that block infrared rays which aren’t filtered by everyday sunscreens. This is news to me, and I’ll take all the help I can get.


HSN is offering a special promotion on Christie’s personal beauty routine. The 3-Piece Age Defying Skincare Regimen ($69) includes the Recapture Day + IR Defense Anti-Aging Day Cream, Recapture 360 Night Anti-Aging Night Treatment and Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polis—a $204 value for only $69. Of the products I’ve tried, these are also my personal favorites. Both creams (Day Cream and Night Treatment) are incredibly hydrating and creamy, and the polish has that scrubby texture that super satisfying, especially for waking up in the morning.

The Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Collection also includes:

Refocus Eye + IR Defense Serum Infusion Eye Treatment ($69), a lovely lightweight, cooling serum that de-puffs, banishes dark circles and wrinkles and instantly brightens. Works great under concealer!

Uplift + IR Defense Firming Neck & Décollete Treatment ($69), The key to Christie’s ageless neck and décolleté, which show zero signs of gravity. Keeping this one on my nightstand . . .

Complete Clarity Facial Cleansing Wash ($22), a nice and clean foaming gel cleanser that’s gentle enough for every skin type, but powerful enough to remove makeup—a must.

The full collection will be available exclusively at HSN beginning March 5.
