HEALTHY BODY: Ballet Beautiful
Mary Helen Bowers became a household name when she trained Natalie Portman for her Academy Award-winning role in Black Swan. More recently, though, Bowers has developed Ballet Beautiful, an innovative online workout that counts Victoria’s Secret models Erin Heatherton and Lily Aldridge, as well as women across 50 different countries as devotees.
Bowers developed her own “private backstage workouts” during her 10-year career as a professional ballerina to keep her body in peak condition. These workouts are what motivated her to create a live, interactive, and really fun virtual online fitness concept. Clients can log in from home, their hotel, or wherever they happen to be in the world, and connect with Bowers in either a group or private class for a results-driven program that sculpts a toned, yet feminine physique.

HEALTHY SKIN: Dr. Harold Lancer
Dr. Harold Lancer is responsible for the clear, youthful complexions of Ellen DeGeneres, Megan Fox, and Julianne Hough—to name a few. Some of America’s most bold-faced names swear by the special “one two three” power-packed system, referred to as The Lancer Method.
The three-step system starts with a polish, then moves to gentle cleansing, and finally to nutrient-packed hydration. But you can use any of the three products solo, and we suggest starting with the polish first.

HEALTHY SKIN: Kerstin Florian
The famously beautiful and aging-backwards Victoria Beckham has a secret to her youthful skin—Beckham relies on Kerstin Florian’s Sun Protection SPF 30 to keep the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays at bay, and to prevent age spots, burning, and wrinkles.
Natural antioxidants combined with soothing chamomile and cucumber extracts calm and soothe the skin while leaving a streak-free finish that can be used on all skin types. Kerstin Florian also offers a great serum for the face.
