My Favorite Quick & Easy Beauty Secrets

Camila Alves, our October guest editor, is known for her gorgeous red carpet style, as well as her beautiful hair and skin. Here, the busy mom of three young children reveals the beauty secrets she uses every day to look great (steal them for yourself!).

Drink TONS of water! It’s so important for glowing, healthy skin.


Eat healthy lunches. I prep my lunch the night before while I’m making dinner. That way I know I’m going to eat the right thing and not grab fast food on the go.

Beat bloat naturally. I sprinkle Turmeric (an Indian spice) on top of my food. It’s an anti-inflammatory, and it helps me when I feel bloated.

Pamper skin with omega oils. I love ProGenius Omega Treatment Oil. It has omega 3, 6, 7, and 9. Great stuff! 

Fake a great mani. I don’t always have time to go get my nails done, so when they start to chip I apply one or two coats of a darker polish on top (I like OPI’s Next Stop…The Bikini Zone and Essie’s Very Structured). That buys me another couple of days or so to squeeze in a proper fix.
