Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without by Deb Gail

Lots of water

Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables

Salmon and avocado

Dark chocolate

Limited caffeine, alcohol, salt, white sugar and well, most anything white

Limited sun exposure

Working up a full body sweat every day (either running or yoga or often both)

Standing on my head every day


At least 7 hours of sleep

All organic lotions and cleansers made by Eminence (I used to not worry about what I put on my face in fact was an eager slave to the latest and greatest fountain of youth touting beauty products, but since my breast cancer diagnosis, I have been hyper-vigilant about limiting my exposure to possible carcinogens, including pesticides and parabens)

Eyebrow shaping pencil



Little bit of blush (unless I’ve just been running or yogaing)

Couple of smears of lip gloss

Smiling whenever possible

Doing one thing every day that scares me

Trying to embrace my imperfections and let my most authentic self shine through

  1. Kalynee needs to go to my yoga class. Lord have mercy. I am still sweating and it ended 45 minutes ago.

    Great list. I think I could use it as my own!

  2. so true, Holly. I sweat more in hot yoga than on a 6 mile run. And please do use it as your own. I think the last three are most important.

  3. I read this on Monday, Gail, and promptly went off to work out on my (mostly unused) elliptical machine. This is a great list.
