Gill Deacon, CBC television talk-show host:

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

A: Whenever possible I use natural beauty products. I use Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream for moisturizing. I also love Burt’s Bees lipgloss. For my hair I’ve discovered Giovanni Organic Beauty. Their 50/50 shampoo and conditioner are fabulous.

Q: Describe your style?

A: I believe in finding your own style and not being a slave to fashion. My style is funky, urban chic with a little Bohemia tossed in for good measure.

Q: How do you keep life in perspective?

A: I have three little boys. When I get bogged down worrying about something, I stop and think what kind of people I hope my children grow up to be and what I am modelling for them as an example. I try to live my life in a way I’d want them to emulate.

Q: How do you stay fit?

A: I run three times a week. Since I started working at the CBC, I have been running home from work two days a week. Every weekend I go on a long run with friends.

Q: What are your healthy eating habits?

A: I am a vegetarian. I eat lots of nuts, whole grains, legumes, tofu (it’s really yummy if you know how to cook it) and fresh vegetables.


Sheldon, pick-up guru on the Comedy Network’s Keys To The VIP:

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

A: I use Neutrogena Deep Clean cream cleanser every day for my face. I also use Clean & Clear exfoliating scrub once a week. A fresh haircut and nice outfit make me feel good.

Q: Describe your style?

A: I would never want to be categorized in terms of style. I always switch up my style to keep reinventing myself. I will wear strange colours to show I don’t care what anyone thinks.

Q: How do you keep life in perspective?

A: I take 10 minutes at night to ask myself the same questions. They are, first, “Am I better today than I was yesterday?” and second, “If I die tonight did I do all I could today?” If I answer “No” to either of those questions, I plan for the next day: “What am I going to accomplish if I wake up that will make me better? What must I accomplish tomorrow if it is to be my last day?” These questions help me to focus on what really matters and remove negative thoughts.
