Brooke Shields, at 58, looks ageless, defying her actual age. Surprisingly, she openly confessed to a beauty mistake from her youth that she still regrets today. This common error can lead to premature wrinkles, and the actress candidly shares her experience and valuable insights, guiding us to steer clear of the same misstep.

She rarely applied sunscreen when she was younger.

Being in the sun for too long might lead to premature wrinkles and fine lines. Although the award-winning actress knows the importance of protecting her skin against the sun, she admits it wasn’t always the case.

“I wish I had worn more sunscreen as a kid. I was from the era of, you put baby oil [on] and you put tin foil around a record, and you hold it...and you just try to get all the sun that you can get — which is terrible for you,” she said. Shields now protects her skin against the sun all year round. “Even though it might be winter, I still know my skin needs UV protection,” she added.

She massages her face with a roller.

The Endless Love actress now takes much better care of her skin. Although she can easily afford the most luxurious facial treatments, she says that using something as affordable as a facial roller helps her freshen up her skin in the morning. “The circulation that I feel when I roll...there’s like a pinker quality to my skin. And I feel like it’s waking up my face, waking up my skin,” she shared.

She uses rich skincare products at night.

Our skin regenerates while we’re sleeping, and it’s the perfect time to apply moisturizers with a richer texture without having to worry about a shiny face. Shields says she likes a nourishing balm you can wash off without using hot water. “It’s anti-inflammatory, it has a really great texture (and doesn’t need a soap to remove it), but my skin still feels moisturized after. I don’t do the vitamin C at night; I do the vitamin A little ampules,” she said.

She keeps her beauty routine simple.

You don’t necessarily have to spend lots of time on complicated skincare routines, but doing something simple on a daily basis can help you achieve a flawless complexion.

“We don’t really think of our skin as an organ, but it is the largest organ of the body,” Shields shared. “So as I got older, I started enjoying the ritual or the idea that it’s not a chore to take care of your skin...it’s a privilege. It doesn’t have to be 20 minutes. It can be seven minutes.”

Although Brooke Shields achieved great success as a model and actress she doesn’t want her children to follow in her footsteps. She has firsthand experience dealing with the challenges of childhood stardom, and she is determined to protect her daughter from those same difficulties. The actress revealed the strict conditions her daughter would have to meet if she chooses a modeling career.
