Looking for sunscreen you can rely on this summer? Check out Christie Brinkley’s faves

Get that timeless glow

At 70, Christie Brinkley remains a timeless beauty, attributing her youthful glow to diligent sunscreen use. As summer approaches, the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover star emphasizes the importance of sun safety.

Summer = Sunscreen

In a recent interview with Page Six Style, Brinkley revealed that SPF is her top beauty secret. “I can’t say it enough: Sunblock and a hat will do more for you than anything else,” she shared, highlighting her favorite SPF brands, Supergoop and La Roche-Posay.

Brinkley’s advice comes from personal experience. “I didn’t use enough sunblock, and I did get skin cancer. I also have to deal with hyper pigmented and hypo pigmented spots,” she admitted.

To instill sun safety in her daughters, Alexa Ray Joel and Sailor Brinkley Cook, she uses a visual lesson. “I lift my skirt, show them my thigh, and say, ‘Look at these spots! You don’t want that!’”


Besides her advocacy for sun protection, Brinkley is also an avid gardener and entrepreneur. She recently launched Twrhll, her Hamptons-inspired clothing line, on HSN. She joins a growing list of celebrities who are fans of Supergoop! and other effective sun protection products.
