Better hair: for the curls
Tending to curly hair is like gardening: Provide proper caire, and
riglets will bloom beautifullly. Neglect them, and you'll need a
Weedwacker. New shampoos and conditioneers nip the problem in the bud
with ingredients that "smoothe the cuticle to diminish frizz and give
strands more spring and shine," says cosmetic chemist Jim Hammer. "The
Paul Labrecque Curly Hair Collection contains defining vitamin B, jojoba
and silk protiens."

Skin Type: My skin is normal to oily. I had little bouts with
acne as an adolescent, though never to the point of it being a problem.

The Best Thing I Ever Did for My Own Skin: Drink lots of water. I
consume three liters of bottled water a day, every day, and I have for

What I'd Never Do: Leave the house without eye cream.
Everyone over 21 needs it - in the morning and the evening.
My Best Tip: I'm not a big believer in squeaky-clean skin. In
this country, we're all taught that constant cleansing is part of good
hygiene. So women think they're removing grime, but all too often
they're stripping their skin of essential oils and drying it out. i
suggest that in the evening, women remove their makeup and then wash
their face with a milk cleanser as opposed to a foaming one (it's less
harsh). Then, in the morning, just splash a little water on your skin
Favorite Product: Cle de Peau Beaute La Creme, at $475 a jar. It's
ridiculously expensive, but my skin thinks it's delicious. I can use it
