Sure, she's genetically blessed.
But at 43, supermodel Cindy Crawford has a body coveted by women half her age. Witness her nude portrait in Allure's April anti-aging issue, which hit stands today. It's not many women over 40 (or over 30, for that matter) who can get away with wearing just a few dollops of fizz on their bits and pieces on the pages of a national magazine. So how does she do it? Hint, her beauty secrets include include microdermabrasion, protecting her hands and décolleté, and avoiding razor cuts at all costs....

Cindy Crawfords Beauty Secrets

    ALLURE: How do you feel about your age, in general?

    CINDY CRAWFORD: I think I look pretty good for 43. But I don't look the way I did when I was 23. So if Star magazine or whatever wants to print a picture of me on the beach from the back, at the worst possible angle, and say that I have cellulite, I'm like, Guess what? I do, and I never said I didn't. I've had two kids, and I'm 43, so leave me alone.

    ALLURE: How do you take care of your skin?

    CINDY CRAWFORD: I use a day cream with antioxidants and sunscreen, a night cream, and an eye cream.I do masks once a week, and I get microdermabrasion once a month. I'm pretty diligent with microdermabrasion because I've noticed a big difference in the texture of my skin from it. Basically, I take care of myself, but I don't want to be obsessive, and I don't want to not like who I am today. I'm all for fighting the good fight, but I don't care how much you work out or how much cream you put on-things change.

    ALLURE: Are there any areas you take particularly
    good care of?

    CINDY CRAWFORD: My hands and my décolleté. In L.A., there are 65-year-old women walking around in Juicy sweatpants, and from the back, you'd think they were 20. But when you see their hands or their neck, you know. When I put moisturizer on my face, I use a little extra so that I have enough to cover my hands. Most people don't start caring about the décolleté until it's too late, but I'm religious about it.

    ALLURE: Do you try to keep your hair young looking?

    CINDY CRAWFORD: Color is the most important factor. You can get any plastic surgery in the world, but hair color is what enables women to look younger longer. I've also become more aware of hair health. I stay away from razor cuts because they can make my hair look frizzy, and I give myself a hair treatment while I'm in my sauna to keep it conditioned.

    Patrick Demarchelier for Vogue

    Heidi Klum's in nothing but her birthday suit for the March issue of German GQ. Fortunately her hubby Seal isn't the jealous type -- according to Heidi he's seen the photos and "loves them."


    Kate Hudson recently revealed that she loves posing for provocative photo shoots -- but the sultry starlet certainly isn't the only celeb who's willing to bare all for a magazine cover.


    Jennifer Aniston for GQ
    Was her ultra-revealing cover stunning or sad? Find out!


    Eva Mendes for Jane
    The actress isn't bashful about showing a little skin (just look at these steamy Calvin Klein ads!).


    Britney Spears for Bazaar
    Showing off her hot pregnant bod, back when we thought there might be hope for her and K-Fed.


    Britney Spears for Rolling Stone
    But of course, Brit was happy to bare all before she was ready to bare children.

    They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Lindsay Lohan for Entertainment magazine
    Back when it was plausible that she might turn out sane.
