Her early work as a model received a lot of attention from national publications. Encouraged by the positive feedback, Crawford decided that she would continue to model and see where the journey took her.

By the late ’80s, Crawford’s face was known to fans all over the world. She worked with major brands such as Christian Dior, DKNY, Ralph Lauren, Oscar De La Renta, Balmain, and Halston. Crawford received acclaim for her natural, stunning beauty, which included her trademark beauty mark and tousled hair.

Her personal life frequently made headlines, and although she branched out with various acting projects over the years, she remains best known for her work as a model.

Why Cindy Crawford ‘Hated’ Her Iconic Beauty Mark

There’s no doubt Crawford takes care to live a healthy lifestyle and watches what she puts into her body, which contributes to her stunning appearance. Still, Crawford has a few tricks that she turns to in order to ensure that her skin stays smooth and flawless at all times.

In an interview with InStyle UK, Crawford admitted that she does rely on the services of a cosmetic surgeon. “I’m not going to lie to myself, past a certain age, creams work on the texture of your skin but, in order to restore elasticity, all I can really count on is vitamin injections, botox, and collagen,” Crawford stated.

“I have a very simple, healthy life, which works miracles,” the supermodel said. “I drink a lot of water, watch what I eat, and exercise… but I owe the quality of my skin to my cosmetic surgeon.”

Many celebrities might not be so open about their affinity for cosmetic procedures, but clearly, Crawford has no such hangup and doesn’t mind being open with her fanbase. In doing so, the iconic supermodel could be helping to break down yet another barrier for women.
