Experience is the best teacher in many facets of life, and that includes beauty. We can turn to these famous celebrities who are in their 40s and beyond for some nuggets of wisdom on how they stay glowing and fabulous throughout the years.

We hear it all the time. Slather on sunscreen daily, even if you’re just staying indoors. Here’s Christie Brinkley’s beauty tip as shared on Byrdie:

I have daughters who are in their 20s. Both girls have such beautiful skin. Basically what I’ve done for them is I’ve hovered over them as children, running around with sunblock. That’s what I would tell any 20-year-old—it’s the most important thing.
