Q: What products that you use make you look and feel good?

A: Well, I am a moisturizing queen! So I love all kinds of lotions, oils, salves and creams for my skin, hair and lips.

On my hair I’m using Dr. Hauschka’s Neem Oil, which I adore. For my lips, the new product which a castmate turned me onto is the Body Shop’s Mango Lip Butter.

I use Vaseline on my face, not crazy amounts. The show make-up and scrubbing it off makes my skin dry and sensitive, so Vaseline makes me happy. The fragrance that rocks my world is from La Prairie. It’s called Midnight Rain. I have to have it on!

Q: Describe your style?

A: I don’t follow the trends of the moment necessarily because I hate looking like every other girl that walks down the street.

I’m a big sunglasses girl. I also love handbags. I have a few faves I alternate between.

And I own one too many matching sweatsuits, some Nikes and a few Adidas. I like to be comfortable. I work out a lot and I like to be somewhat cute while I’m doing so, and they are perfect for that.

Q: What things make life easier?

A:My family and friends make life easier! Always first and foremost, music is my salvation. All kinds.

Q: What products do you use that make you look and feel good?

A: I use Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Soap. It’s environmentally sound and an excellent wake-me-up in the shower.

Q: Describe your style?

A: My fashion trend is that if someone compliments me on what I’m wearing I try to remember to tell the person who picked it out for me.

That’s usually my wife, or someone at the store on the Danforth where I buy my clothes.

Q: How do you keep life in perspective?

A: I remember that I’m lucky enough to earn a living doing something I enjoy.

Q: How do you stay fit?

A: I practise combat conditioning and hill sprints.

Q: What are your healthy eating habits?

A: I’m vegan and aim for organic as often as possible. Everyone who loves steak just turned the page in disgust.
