The difference between Christie Brinkley (age 63) and what most people consider "normal" appearance for age 63 can be explained as:
1) proper hydration (amount of distilled water, or other clear, pure, uncontaminated by metals, chemicals, etc., water, drunk daily)
2) optimum nutrition/food (which, simultaneously, means avoiding things like foods or beverages which cause glycation, known "age"-accelerators such as destructive fats, too much salt, etc.---plus the optimum, right-for-that-person, nutritional supplements (vitamins/minerals/phytochemicals, antioxidants, food-in-capsules (like fish oil, or nutritional yeast), and foods for that person, all of which are more or less unique to that individual)
3) avoiding sun exposure beyond a basic minimum
4) exercise (of specific different kinds, including weight-bearing exercise, stretching exercises like yoga, aerobic exercise, etc.)
5) no smoking, and "minimal" alcohol intake (a social drink is fine...more than that is iffy)
Optimum use of the above guidelines leads, on average, to about twenty years difference in appearance at any age above about forty or forty-five. Some people do this exceptionally well (and they look comparatively even "younger"), others do it to lesser levels, but EVERYONE who does this winds up looking significantly younger than those they went to high school with who did NOT do the above.
(I've been in the entertainment industry my entire life, minus the first three years, and I have seen this play out countless times in real time among performers (many who began as child actors or teenagers). Plus: My Grandma was one of the earlier of the "Second Wave" health food pioneers, and my aunt, who did a chunk of the above, was literally head-turning beautiful from the time she entered adolescence up through her early 80s, when she died of pancreatic cancer. There is an ENORMOUS difference in the appearance of people who do the above, compared to those of their same chronological age who do not. Other than avoiding, or possibly delaying the onset of, the big killers like heart disease and cancer, the above guidelines may not extend a person's lifespan exactly, but it absolutely DOES increase a given person's quality of life for the years they ARE alive.)
