Christie Brinkley's look is absolutely age-defying!
But, believe it or not, her smooth skin isn't the result of regular Botox injections! In fact, the 61-year-old opened up to makeup artist Bobbi Brown earlier this week that she's only had the procedure once, and she totally hated it!

The blonde beauty remembered:
"I tried Botox when I thought I was getting a horizontal line that bothered me. I mean it was barely visible, but some doctor somewhere along the way said something, so I said, 'Alright.' And it was horrible."
The model admitted that she couldn't stand how she felt afterwards, and even experienced some drooping, adding:
"I was stuck with it. I literally had to wear a hat, so it looked like it was just the hat shoving my eye down."
Ugh! That sounds horrible!
But now we're intrigued! If injections aren't the key to the Michigan native's ageless facial features, then what is?? Well, the actress is adamant that the universe is repaying her for her meat-less diet, saying:
"I do a little bit of whatever it takes. But I truly believe that my No. 1 thing is that I became a vegetarian when I was 13. I made the decision because I loved animals and didn't want to be a part of the slaughter industry, but I've been reaping the benefits of that karma ever since. I've avoided the constant antibiotic injections into animals and the growth hormones. If you ask me, growth hormones are probably very aging, if it's trying to make cattle age faster. That's just my own personal opinion."
She also feels that having an overall joy of living can prevent pesky wrinkles from popping up, commenting:
"The other thing that I think contributes to a youthful look is a joie de vivre. I really believe that being flexible and grateful contributes a lot to your happiness, which contributes to your health, and contributes to your look. When you feel good, you look good. And vice versa: When you look good, you feel good."
That makes sense. You know, because frown lines are totally a thing!
So there you have it, Perezcious readers! Do U believe Christie's tips and tricks are the real deal? SOUND OFF in the comments!
