However, what we really want to know is how the eff his skin seemingly hasn’t aged in 20 years. Modica gets asked the same question: “People ask me all the time whether he’s had injections, if he’s had work done, if he dyes his hair. The answer to all of those questions is no!”
So, what fountain of youth is he drinking from then? Apparently, it’s all good genes — and a strict skin-care routine. “In all the years that I’ve been working with him, he has always taken good care of his skin,” she says. Six years ago, she introduced him to vegan line Glycelene Skincare.
“Considering that we’re always shooting in different climates, and when he’s not working, he’s golfing or playing outside with his kids, his skin really never gets a break from the elements. Which proves if you are diligent with your skin-care routine and make sure you use sunscreen, you can at least slow down the aging process.”
Another thing that’s remained consistent throughout his career is his tan, which, surprisingly, is not
the result of a good bronzer or self-tanner. “I ask everyone that I work with not to tan their face because it’s hard getting rid of that orange look with foundation,” Modica says. “He golfs a lot, so his face is always getting color.” Very rarely does she have to bronze him, she adds, but if it’s been a particularly pasty winter for the star, she has a fix. “There’s only one self-tanner I have found that has zero orange in the product that you can use that on your face, and it’s called Spray Di Sole
. It gives you a great natural color.”

Modica doesn’t take her job — or her friendship with the host — for granted for a second, either. “I’ve done his makeup on many beaches, islands, castles, and vineyards,” she says. “We’ve been to South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Tahiti, Bora-Bora, Fiji, New Zealand, Iceland — the list goes on. I never thought when I started doing makeup that it would take me to all of these incredible places, but it’s all because of Chris. It’s amazing how one person can change your life.” How’s that for a happily ever after fantasy?
