Dorough: At this point, we are not 20 years old. Every now and then I get a HydraFacial, use a moisturizer and sunscreen. We are like wine: we get better with time, but you have to massage these grapes and keep them good, juicy and plump.
McLean: The hell you’re talking about?
Dorough: Yes! Become juicy and plump. This is what you have to do.
Littrell: I like Aveeno Lotion because the skin on my face is hard, but it can also get itchy at times. I use Olaplex on my hair. I got into this seven or eight months ago, and I already have hair in places I didn’t have it, which I think is exceptional.
Carter: I’m a big fan of Labo Santal 33. My wife sprayed it on me one day and I kept wearing it.
McLean: I wear foundation every day; I’ve had it for years now. MAC NW30. Maybelline mascara is my number one choice for coloring my mustache and so on. But what everyone knows about me is my nail polish. I have been wearing nail polish for 25 years now. Never in a million years did I think I’d have my own business [Ava Dean Beauty], which was inspired by my daughters. Our daddy-daughter dates are at the nail salon. It’s the best.
Littrell: If I could give my youngster beauty advice, it would be to put on sunscreen. In fact, several cancerous spots have been removed from my body.
Richardson: Alastin’s HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum is a tinted moisturizer, but it has
crazy sunscreen in it. As I get older I have a bit of hyperpigmentation on my face. Never get into a tanning bed. Looking back, the tanning bed was not the way to go.
Carter: Just feel comfortable in your own skin. I have always tried to be in touch with my feminine side. Even if you are a guy, you can also look beautiful. And maybe just drink some more water.
