As a busy mother of two daughters with accolades like model, equestrian, and author to her name, the always-beautiful Kelly Killoren Bensimon surely has a ton of secrets for looking good. Here, Kelly shares her favorite places to get gorgeous around her summer retreat in East Hampton. Read on and snag more advice on staying beautiful by eating right with her new book, I Can Make You Hot (St. Martins Press, $24.99 hardcover, $11.99 ebook).
My favorite place to relax is Naturopathica (Red Horse Plz., 74 Montauk Hwy., East Hampton, 329-2525) in East Hampton—the massages there are amazing and take you out of the Hamptons and into pure euphoria. I also love their lavender products and their rose geranium facial spray, which is incredibly refreshing. I’ve had facials there that don’t leave you bruised or red and splotchy, but rather luminous and glowing.
When my rock star hairstylist Bradley Irion isn’t doing my color, I go to M Salon (64 Park Pl., East Hampton, 324-3036) per his orders where they color my roots only (I don’t let them take my highlights away, roots only!). I also usually beg for a quick manicure so my hair looks beachy, but my nails look clean and chic. There’s nothing worse than a woman with mangled nails, or ones that are not clean and short.
And on my way home, I always make a pit stop at White’s Pharmacy (81 Main St., East Hampton, 324-0082) where I pick up my Terax conditioner, Tweezerman to keep my brows from having a mind of their own, and Folavril perfume by Annick Goutal.
