Actress Simona Fusco Shares her Beauty Secrets

Simona Fusco is best known for the beautiful Swedish bombshell Ulsa in “Beerfest” and  Hedda in “The Pool boys” (an American Pie franchise) IMG_7461 Simona has been a cover model for numerous publications including Maxim, Esquire, FHM and People Magazine.  Her latest acting role is on the Family Film  ” Beverly Hills Christmas” which will premiere Nov 1-7  2015 on UPTV  starring Dean Cain where she plays the bad girl ,Yvonne.

Q: How do you keep yourself looking camera ready?

Simona: I have to make sure that I stick to my beauty regimen by first taking all my makeup off every night and applying the proper products to protect the face.

Q: What type of beauty products do you use?

Simona: My beauty secrets are pretty simple: I invest in good products. Some of my faves are La Prairie, Natura Bisse and Luzern. All of these products are available at spas.

Q: Do you do anything else to keep your lovely skin looking great?

Simona: I love to indulge in facials once a month to keep my skin in shape. For my body, to keep my skin soft and moist, I love Kiehl’s Creme de Corps. I get it at a department store. It has all natural ingredients and leaves your skin looking dewy and subtle.

Q: What about your long mane of hair?

Simona: As far as my hair, I love Kerastase. My hair salon sells it but most department stores sell it as well. I love the yellow and red kind which moisturizes color treated hair.

Q: What is your best kept beauty secret?simona small

Simona: When it comes to water it’s very important to drink good water and even shower and bathe in good water free of aging and unhealthy chemicals. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and therefore absorbs everything you apply. I use a filter in my shower to get rid of any chlorine and other chemicals that not only damage your skin but also your hair and prematurely ages you. I drink plenty of water and eat healthy organic whole foods. I’ve invested in a machine called Kangen water which filters all the bad chemicals out of your drinking water system. I highly recommend it as its used in hospitals in Japan to cure life threatening diseases and skin issues. Other than that I believe in surrounding yourself with positive, supportive, driven individuals is not only good for your soul and psyche but also makes you feel good about yourself and your outlook on life which in turn makes you beautiful from the inside out. Happiness gives everyone a healthy glow!

MURAD skincare is “spot on”

I don’t want to jinx it but lately my skin has really been cooperating with me. Its been clear, smooth and the redness has gone down immensely. But still, every once in a while I still have that occasional little break out. With those pesky little ones, I don’t do my full acne clearing regimen. Instead I grab my MURAD Acne Spot Fast Fix. One little dab on the infected area and in one night it has gone down almost instantly.

MURAD Spot Treatment

MURAD Spot Treatment

MURAD was created by a Doctor to bring you the utmost in skincare to target your problem. After I cleanse at night, I put just one small dob on my finger (making sure my hands are clean), warm it up on my fingers and rub onto my acne spots. As I sleep, its like a little miracle is happening beneath the epidermis lol. In the morning the sore pimple spot gets smaller and hurts less. After about 2-3 nightly treatments my spots are gone for good.

Depending on the deepness of the pimple, how well your skin reacts to the product and how often you do these treatments will determine how fast they are treated. MURAD is very gentle, perfect for sensitive skin, and cost effective. So whether you have rosacea, acne, anti aging or just need a great skincare regimen try MURAD. For even more information on MURAD check out www.murad.com and check out your local ULTA to find how you can get your hands on some!

Do the “TanGo”

Lately my career has me on the road up to 2-3 weeks sometimes more. Even though I love it, Its hard to adjust to my daily skincare routine. With that includes wanting to do some self tanner being that we are now going into the fall months. I have always loved self tanning because the sun and I are not the best of friends lol. And on top of the that, sometimes I don’t get it even enough. With TanGo exfoliating mitt, applicator mitt, removal cloth and glove I can get the perfect tan.



TanGo’s products are non abrasive so you don’t have to worry about it harming your skin, and the cloth and glove are even great for removing makeup. No product. Wet the towel down and just wipe away. Its that cool. Also, lets say you no longer want your tan just use the tan removal glove and instantly your tan comes off. The applicator applies your tanner evenly, thoroughly and leaves your hand feeling less sticky and mess free. And all products are reusable!

TanGo is by far one of the best tanning supply I have ever used. With so many different uses in the glove & towel, the applicator giving a flawless finish and the exfoliator mitt making you feel squeaky l=clan, its no wonder I can’t get enough. I swear I’m beyond addicted to all these products (especially the exfoliator mitt). For more information on how you to can purchase these products check out http://www.tangocloth.com/

As cool as a cucumber

When it comes down to snacking, I seriously cannot get enough cucumbers. With so many different ways of preparing them, their taste and texture is always changing making them “fun” to eat. Of course the best way to eat them, health wise, is just straight up raw. Of course with all these different ways of eating and preparing them, there are also many different ways of using cucumbers for your skin.



We probably remember our grandmothers or even our mothers telling us how they would put slices over their eyes to reduce puffiness & dark circles right? Throughout time, research shows that now cucumbers can be beneficial for cooling sunburn (which now makes them my best friend), reduce pore size and can fade freckles. Many skincare products are even incorporating cucumbers into their ingredients. Even though my skincare routine is very disciplined, I have always found that my skin benefits more with what I put into my body. With switching cucumbers to my snack my skin’s texture has improved, it’s thoroughly hydrated and glows. When I touch my skin it feel so smooth its almost feels brand new.

Its amazing how something that can be grown in your back yard is not only beneficial for your health but is great for rejuvenating your skin and much more. So next time you pick up this giant green log just think of all the things it can do for you. Get your cucumber on 🙂

Protected Fun In The Sun

Obagi 1

When thinking of sun screen we rarely think luxury or high end. Once you try Obagi Medical, you will. I am always in search of something that I can use to hydrate my skin as well as help fight those fine lines, dark spots and rough skin that is popping up as I get older. I simple love Obagi 360 HydraFactor Moisturing Cream with Suncreen. It is so thick, creamy and glides on smooth leaving my face protected from the harmful rays of the beautiful sun, I love so much. One of the great thing about this product is you can wear it with or without makeup, which is a major plus for me. I don’t like to wear makeup when it is so hot that as soon as you step outside you are sweating bullets, but you can’t leave your face exposed to the sun so you definitely need to have some protection on your face. I also love the fact that I can use Obagi 360 HydraFactor Moisturing Cream with Suncreen as a daily moisturizer and it does not leave your face oily, it soaks into your skin leaving the right balance of that refreshed youthful glow.

Don’t worry Obagi Medical have your body covered as well! When you use Broad Spectrum SPF 30 it recommend that you put it on at least 15 minutes before you go out in the sun and reapply every 2 hours for the best protection. It comes in a perfect carrying size that you can just drop in your purse and you don’t have to worry about that big bulky bottle taking up room or making a huge mess. This product feels so rich as it glides on your skin smoothly and leaves your whole body feeling soft, beautiful and protected.
