Natural beauty is …
something that comes from within. It’s beauty without a lot of effort or bells and whistles.
My natural beauty icon: Audrey Hepburn.
Top skin saver (and it’s free!):
Water. If you don’t drink enough, it shows in your eyes and your skin.
The runner-up (alas, not free):
Tinted moisturizer, because as I get older, keeping it natural is about not using too much powder or anything that’s too drying. Laura Mercier is one of my favoritesit has a high SPF of 20, and it works for a night out or a day at the beach.
Top time-saving product: Luminous High Shine Finishing
Spray, from my own line. It freshens your look and adds shine. I can go two or three days without washing my hair when I use it.
Best drop-5-pounds-quick tip:
Don’t drink calories! You can drink a meal’s worth of calories in one Frappuccino or smoothie.
I kick up my workouts so I feel like things aren’t jiggling as much. And I take care of my skinI use scrub gloves in the bath a couple of times a week to get rid of dead skin.
Natural energy booster:
In the morning I like a little bit of oolong tea, a Chinese tea known to get your metabolism started. Aside from that, nothing does it for you like a power nap.
Most underrated feature:
I think the shoulders are sensuous. Wearing an off-the-shoulder top can be sexy without being in your face.
I still have to make peace with …
Oh dear, it depends on the day! But I know what I need to work on. I know what I am happy with. I know what will be there for me when I need it to. [Laughs.] You need to make peace with all of itit all works for you.
