Whats Your Favorite Feel Sexier Product?Whats Your Favorite Feel Sexier Product?
THURSDAY, JANUARY 14, 2010
Nothing makes me feel sexier than having really, really smooth skin. Well, having smooth skin, sipping anejo tequila on the rocks and wearing either a low-cut blouse or a short skirt, though not both at the same time. Oh, and the ten pounds I just lost.
Of all of the above, smooth skin is actually the cheapest and easiest to get. And I can tell you how in just two words: exfoliating gloves.
A few years ago, I saw exfoliating gloves in my local drugstore and bought them, took them home and tried them. I was really impressed with the results, particularly on my legs, arms and yes, on my ass. And I’ve been using them ever since. One of my friends, who came to visit me and tried the gloves when she was using my shower, was actually offended that I hadn’t shared this knowledge with her.
The gloves are inexpensive (less than $10.00 a pair), are easy to use (one size fits all) and produce really phenomenal results. The gloves work by removing the surface layer of dead cells so that the new, pretty skin is exposed. I wouldn’t use them on sensitive skin like your face or neck because they are too abrading. And I’ve found that I get the best results by using them with either a moisturizing soap or body wash and then applying lotion right after my shower.
I use the gloves a couple of times a week, especially on date night with my husband. And he notices. Which leads to more physical contact because who doesn’t want to touch smooth skin? And more physical contact leads to…. Well, you see where I’m going with this.
So, I’ve shared with you my favorite make-me-feel-sexier product. But I can always use a little more sexiness in my life. Can’t you?
What’s your favorite make-you-feel-sexier product? Don’t hold out on me!

Have you ever thought about tweaking and enhancing your diet to address common skincare and beauty woes such as acne, rosacea, or dryness?
Anti-Inflammatory foods can actually help the look of swollen and red areas of the skin.Walnuts, walnuts, flaxseed, and olive oil are all foods that contain high amounts of omega 3’s which are powerful anti-inflammatory agents.
Recent studies link dairy products with mild to severe cases of acne. If you’re an acne sufferer, it may be time to switch to soy. You can also add more calcium to your diet through leafy greens and beans.
Selenium is another super-food your skin needs to thrive. Whole wheat breads, turkey, tuna and brazil nuts are all great sources of selenium.
Although everyone knows water is needed for beautiful skin, not everyone knows how much they should drink. A half-gallon/8 glasses a day is a minimum that everyone should be drinking. You can add extra benefits to your water by adding crushed vitamins and dissolving them before drinking. This will make the vitamins bio-available, and your skin will show the benefits.
Diet foods shouldn’t be just about what you take in, but what you put on. I always encourage my celebrity clients to look for products with naturally derived ingredients. You can do this on the cheap at home with an easy skin-polishing slough: mix 3/4 cup dry oatmeal with ½ cup honey. Rub on face and body for a few minutes and rinse off in the shower. You’re skin will glow and your wallet will shine!
