When Molly Sims first entered the spotlight, she was a self-confessed beauty junkie. "I used to use every single product that I would hear about," she says. "Because of this, I broke out majorly. I learned my lesson to keep it simple."
Now, when Sims has time to play in the kitchen, she enjoys making her own lip scrubs. "I mix together 1/2 cup raw brown sugar, 3 tablespoons almond oil, and 1 tablespoon honey. It does a good job of sloughing off any dry skin, and it also makes a cute DIY gift."
Molly's Favorite Beauty Products
