Anti-aging is over.
Beauty icon Lauren Hutton says skincare brand Strivectin‘s “age positivity” is what made her sign on as a brand ambassador.
“I liked what they wanted to do and how they were shifting the conversation toward age positivity, instead of this idea of ‘anti’-aging — which never made much sense to me,” Hutton, 78, told Byrdie.
“I was really impressed that they were smart enough to speak to women of my generation.”
The supermodel, who is six decades into her fashion career, went on to criticize the industry’s “obsession with youth.”
“If we’re lucky, we’re all going to get old,” she quipped.
“I think it’s time to realize that anti-aging is an old-fashioned term. There’s a lot of research that shows that our attitudes have so much to do with how we age, so instead of worrying about this wrinkle or that spot, we should all be focused on taking good care of our skin and ourselves, and the industry can help shift that conversation for the future.”
The gap-toothed beauty keeps it simple with the rest of her routine, revealing that the “one product that makes her feel most herself” is Clinique’s Almost Lipstick ($22), a makeup classic and TikTok favorite.
“[I like to] put Black Honey on the inner edges of the lips and then Pink Honey all over,” Hutton told the outlet.
This isn’t the first time the Calvin Klein underwear model has opened up about aging and spilled her beauty secrets; in May, she posed topless for the Harper’s Bazaar Beauty Issue and talked about landing her contract with Revlon — which was the biggest in modeling history at the time — and why she refuses to fight naturally growing older.
“When it comes to cosmetic procedures, there’s a real thin line you tread. There are people who I find hard to look at today. Their faces don’t look like the people I once knew,” Hutton said at the time.
