Ladies and gentlemen of the class of ’99, if Elle Macpherson could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.
The 50-year-old supermodel is kicking herself for not wearing skin protection, telling The Gloss that it’s the biggest mistake she made back in the day. When regrets are formed on the daily during those formative years, ranging from disappointing your parents, to the racoon-eyeliner technique you thought was cool, we best be listening to the girl. Here’s what “The Body” had to say:
“My greatest regret from when I was younger was that I didn’t protect my skin from the sun — even though I think I look better with a tan,” Elle told The Gloss. “I have plenty of freckles all over my body, and I haven’t done anything about it. There’s no point in doing lasers because I’m in the sun all the time anyway, but I think sunblock is really important now. Always 50+ SPF.”
If you think Elle’s looking good at 50, imagine how darn fine she’d be looking had she lathered up on the scientifically proven skin protection. Lesson learned!
