The most recent celeb to tell me she’s “obsessed” with it in her interview was Autumn Reeser. This “must have” is Cle de Peau Beaute. Cle de Peau is a super hot line that’s a big celeb fave!
- Kate Walsh shared in her interview with My Skin Affair that she likes Cetaphil Ultra Hydrating Lotion. Shay Mitchell just told us that she’s currently using a Cetaphil Facial Cleanser. And personally, I have used Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser many times. For a great face wash or lotion, that’s very affordable, check out Cetaphil at your local drugstore. It’s a very reliable product!
- Sexy Complexion! As erotic action heats up, so do you. When your body becomes heated, harmful toxins are flushed from your system. You benefit from the boost in circulation. As your heart rate increases, more blood is pumped throughout your body, especially your face. Everything from elastin fibers to the skin’s natural collagen are plumped and firmed. Enjoy!
- Viewer Question: Caroline – 29, FL. Do you have a suggestion for a more natural/organic skin care line that also has a nice selection of makeup? Answer: I would recommend checking out Korres. It’s a great line. Korres has a good variety of makeup and skin care products. I’m a big fan. Let me know how it works out for you. Good luck!
- Reader question: Ashley – 27, TX. Do you have a favorite cleanser that’s available at drugstores? Answer: I love Cetaphil. It’s good for all skin types and I’ve been a fan of it for years. Check to see if your drugstore has their own version of Cetaphil. Compare the ingredients. If they are the same, you can save a few bucks
- Superior Shaving! Olive oil makes a wonderfully skin-softening shaving cream. The silky sensation of this homemade shaving cream is also hydrating, so rub an extra amount of olive oil over your knees and the heels on your feet. Enjoy, beautiful! “Beauty Byte” from Cooking Well: Beautiful Skin
- Pink Ribbon Time! October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so many skin care & makeup lines are supporting BCA. Celebrate an extra reason to treat yourself to one of your favorite products & give back while you’re at it. Keep your eyes peeled for pink ribbon products!

- “Pump some iron” into your life and diet and you will say goodbye to dark under-eye circles. Foods that contain iron, like the darkest leafy greens you can find, for instance kale and spinach, can vastly improve your eyes’ dark secret! “Beauty Byte” from Cooking Well: Beautiful Skin
- Invest in a bottle of Lavender Essential Oil. The scent is very calming and it’s great for relaxation. Add Lavender Oil to your bath water, massage oil and use it in first aid. Lavender is an excellent tonic for the nerves, can help to induce sleep and it blends well with other oils. It has so many uses and it’s one of the greatest smells on earth. Lavender!
- How often should you get a facial? It varies from person to person. Ideally, try to get a facial every four to six weeks or try to have a facial at least four times a year, as the seasons change. I’m a huge of pampering yourself as much as possible, but there is such a thing as getting facials too often. And over-doing it can cause irritation. Sometimes your skin needs a break. So for those of you who are in need of more pampering, shoot for once a month. And for those of you who are addicted to the spa, switch up the facial for a massage once in a while. Happy skincare!
- Foods for your face! Want to incorporate foods into your diet that are great for your skin? Almonds: High in vitamin E and antioxidants. Acerola cherries: High in Vitamin C. Mangoes: High in beta-carotene. Squash: Packed with vitamin A. Happy snacking!
- Avocado facial for you! The next time you are picking up a few avocados for your favorite guacamole recipe, pick up an extra avocado for your face. Mash up the avocado until it’s creamy and apply to your clean face and neck. Leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse and enjoy this natural moisturizer.
- Try adding 1 cup of raw honey and 1 cup of whole milk or half & half to a warm bath. Honey is a natural moisturizer and has antioxidant properties, helping to fight skin damage. Honey also helps to absorb and maintain moisture. Milk is not only soothing to the skin but it acts as a mild skin exfoliant as well. Together, this is a very soothing combination. Soak for 20 minutes.
– Keep a bottle of Tea Tree Oil in your medicine cabinet. Tea Tree Oil is a natural antiseptic. Not only is it great for acne and oily skin, but you can use it on cuts, burns, insect bites, blisters and a lot more. Try adding it to your facial wash. Dilute as directed. Nature knows best!
- Vitamin E! It has anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. Break open a Vitamin E capsule and apply it directly to scars. The sooner, the better. Helps smooth out scars. Also known to be good for stretch marks. Give it a try and if you see significant changes in your stretch marks, let us know. We’d love to hear about it.
