Whether she's gathering fresh produce for her cookbooks (her latest: Endless Summer Cookbook) or TV shows (The Cooking Channel's Beach Bites), Katie Lee pays attention to the ingredients she chooses. She also whips up a few beauty products of her own: "Coconut oil is one of my favorite ingredients for cooking and for skin care," she says. "I use it in place of night cream a few nights a week, and as a hair mask." Here are her top picks to round out her routine.

Katie Lee's Favorite Beauty Products:

"It doesn't matter how late you're up the night before, this concealer will hide the damage. It erases all dark circles."

2. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen SPF 30, $11,
"I never leave home without sunblock. This is my favorite because it doesn't leave that thick white film on my face or make me look greasy."

3. Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara, $32,
"This is a great all-in-one mascara, and it doesn't make my lashes brittle."

4. Aquaphor Healing Ointment, $8,
"An oldie but goodie. I use it as a lip gloss, a hand cream—you name it. I even use it as a 'beauty product' for my dog Fionula. I put a little on her nose to kep it moisturized."
