Now, the seemingly ageless supermodel is finally revealing her beauty secrets. “The secret is that there is no secret,” says Crawford in an interview with Violet Grey, as reported by E! Online. “Do all the stuff we know: Don’t smoke, get enough sleep, drink plenty of water, find what makes you happy.”
We get it, the brunette beauty was blessed with gorgeous genes. But there must be some regimen she follows to maintain her flawless features. Luckily for us, she does, and it's simple. The key, however, is to stay consistent.

“I use SPF day cream every day, cleanser every day and night,” says Crawford. “I definitely use the night crème, eye crème, and the Crème de Serum from my line. What I think is true is that [results are] cumulative. When a 35-year-old starts taking care of her skin, she won’t look different. It’s when you’re my age that you start seeing the payoff.”
Sure, not everyone is going to stock up on Crawford’s skincare line in hopes of looking like the style icon, but experts do insist starting early is crucial for delaying the signs of aging.
“The earlier you start, the better,” says Dr. Julia Tzu, clinical assistant professor of dermatology at New York University School of Medicine, on using a night cream to maintain skin’s hydration. “Prevention is always better than treating an existing problem. I recommend many women in their late twenties start using a thick night-time moisturizer to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that develop in the thirties and forties.”

Another thing to watch out for? It’s all in your head, says Crawford.
“No one tells you about your hair!” she says. “You don’t expect the texture to change and that it will break more easily. I’m definitely kinder to it now. I don’t wash and dry it every day … I’ll sleep with it pinned up.”
