Christie Brinkley is smoking-hot at 62, thanks to an anti-aging vegan diet, yoga workouts, cardio exercise, and organic skincare.

Brinkley, who has been traveling with boyfriend John Mellencamp on his “Plain Spoken” tour, has been sharing her experiences on Instagram, where she looks more beautiful than ever.

Judging by her flawless face and superfit body, it’s hard to believe Brinkley is 62 years old.

Christie, a former Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl, said a vegan diet and yoga workouts are her anti-aging beauty secrets, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

“I made the decision [to become vegetarian at age 13] 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,” said Brinkley. “I’ve avoided the constant antibiotic injections into animals and the growth hormones.”

Brinkley says a positive attitude and staying engaged with the world around you is critical for happiness and healthy aging, TheImproper reported.

“I really believe attitude plays a huge part in how you feel,” said Christie, who reveals her beauty and fitness secrets in her book, Timeless Beauty. “One of the best is to care about the world around you.”

Brinkley joins a growing number of celebrity vegetarians and vegans who are sold on the anti-aging health and weight loss benefits of a plant-based diet, including Jennifer Lopez and Demi Moore.

The age-defying health effects of vegan and vegetarian diets are no surprise to Dr. David Katz, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center.

“A diet of minimally processed foods close to nature — predominantly plants — is decisively associated with health promotion and disease prevention,” said Dr. Katz, author of Disease-Proof.

Dr. Neal Barnard agrees. “Studies suggest that free radicals [toxic molecules that form in the body] contribute to aging,” Barnard wrote in his book, the 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart. “A vegan diet, rich in fruits and vegetables, is full of antioxidants which help protect the body from damage by free radicals.”

Brinkley exercises every day, alternating between yoga and light weightlifting workouts. She also works out on the Total Gym, enjoys spinning classes and walking.

Christie Brinkley said being grateful for all the blessings in your life is a key anti-aging beauty secret.

“When you feel good, you look good,” said Christie. “Being flexible and grateful contributes a lot to your happiness, which contributes to your health and to your looks.”

Brinkley is also a fan of sunscreen, laser skin treatments, and supplements. “I take vitamins, like Biosil, for my hair, skin and nails,” said Christie.

Christie, who has her own vegan skincare line, said her age-defying skincare secrets include daily exfoliating and moisturizing.

“My routine is very simple: I cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize,” said Christie. “I use the Olay Regenerist line and Clarins neck cream, and I’m religious about wearing sunscreen daily.”

Brinkley has remained an A-list celebrity for for the past 40 years in the fickle entertainment business because she’s an authentic spokesperson for any product she represents.

“I believe that my longevity in my career is due to the fact that I’m very careful about what I endorse,” said Christie. “I really want to believe in the products I put my name on. People know they can trust what I say.”

    It takes a lotta money, many cosmetic procedures, a personal trainer, a personal chef, a personal assistent and a make up assistent for her to look like she does. Her book is just another way for her to make money, same for her endless string of instagram pix: all published to attract attention. She must have no sense of privacy. At the end of the day, she does have four failed marriages though, so obviously there is something wrong with her. And I guess shes looking for a fifth divorce, dating that cig addicted three times divorced man? Omg!
