Q: What products make you look and feel good?

A: With all the makeup I wear in the show each day, skin care is pretty important. I use products from the Clinique line and Dior eye makeup remover. For makeup during the day, I feel better if I put on a bit of under-eye concealer, mascara and lip gloss.

Q: Describe your style?

A: I like flipping through fashion magazines. The clothes in my closet are more basic. I prefer simple lines and neutral colours.

Q: How do you keep life in perspective?

A: My friend and I used to play a game when we would begin to feel overwhelmed. We would quickly list five things in our lives we were thankful for, and that would usually help us regain perspective enough not to give the small stuff more energy than it warrants.

Q: What things make life easier?

A: When I tour, I carry framed photos of my family with me to put around in each apartment or hotel. That, scented candles, and stocking my kitchen with the basics helps me feel at home.

Q: What are your healthy eating habits?

A: I try to eat a balanced diet. I have noticed that I feel better when I eat less bread and keep sweets to a minimum. I eat lots of vegetables, fish, chicken and meat. My favourite snack is celery and peanut butter and every so often I treat myself to some gummi bears.

Randal Edwards, actor, plays Noah Jensen in The Best Years airing Tuesday night on Global:

Q: What products make you look and feel good?

A: I’m a pretty basic guy. I use Aveeno moisturizer on my face everyday and American Crew Fiber Cream for my hair.

Q: Describe your style?

A: My style usually consists of whatever the girl I’m dating at the time wants me to wear. I don’t really colour outside the lines with my style. It’s pretty safe.

Q: How do you keep life in perspective?

A: I travel. I’ve seen too much out there to even remotely think that I have it bad in any way. When stuff comes up I try to step back and keep it all in perspective.

Q: How do you stay fit?

A: I hate the gym, but working out is a necessary evil in this biz. So I play a lot of sports, hockey, tennis, soccer. That usually does the trick.
