I was in New York from DC for an event and the rain was relentless all day. The last thing I wanted to do was make the slushy trek into Manhattan from Brooklyn to check out a spa. Still, duty called. When I arrived at the Waldorf Astoria, I thought it was beautiful, of course; but a bit stodgy and traditional. The setting did nothing to lift my rain-soaked mood.

As Miami homicide department chief Maria Laguerta on the Showtime series Dexter, Lauren Velez doesn’t know that her blood splatter expert (Michael C. Hall) is secretly an avenging serial killer, and until recently, she was keeping a secret of her own—a hot and heavy love affair with Detective Batista (David Zayas). But when it comes to beauty secrets, Velez is happy to share.

Lickable body icing, non-toxic massage oils and whipped cream not meant for the kitchen; this can all mean only one thing: It must be Valentine’s Day. I have decided to embrace the holiday I used to loathe largely in part because I’m still bummed Christmas is over. I need a little something to look forward to. So let’s focus on a slightly sexier day of giving, shall we? If you need inspiration, check out Victoria’s Secret 7 Sides of Sexy on victoriassecret.com.

Already the number one selling women’s fragrance in New York City’s flagship Macy's department store after only six days on the floor, Beyoncé’s first fragrance, Heat, is generating some…well, you know. The only thing hotter than the sales of this sweet juice is the ad campaign, shot by "Single Ladies" video director Jake Nava. The spot features a writhing Beyoncé in a clingy, silky slip of a dress—which does actually slip off her back at one point in the video—singing the smokin' hot classic tune, "Fever."

If your afternoon glow is more like an oil slick, it’s probably time to invest in an oil-controlling cleanser. I just tried Lush Dark Angels Facial Cleanser ($10.95 for 3.5 oz, lushusa.com) made of charcoal and rhassoul mud to help absorb oil overload. It also has black sugar to scrub away rough patches and avocado oil to prevent dryness because if you over dry skin it will produce even more oil.

So if you happen to be taking artsy pictures, or just curious about how models, makeup artists and photographers achieve the "wet" skin look, here's how: After applying foundation, apply Johnson & Johnson's Baby Oil Gel with aloe vera and Vitamin E all over the face with a cosmetics sponge. This will create a beyond dewy finish that mimics a post-shower wetness. I don't know when you'll have a chance to use this information, but I thought it was cool.

As a presenter at the Golden Globe Awards, Modern Family star Sofia Vergara was stunning in a Carolina Herrera gown and Chopard diamonds with her long hair gathered back and half up because of the soggy weather.

I have a friend who can’t eat cheese; whenever she does, her face gets red and breaks-out in these tiny little bumps. I feel for her, especially since my idea of heaven is a long hammock between two palm trees with a plate full of cheesy quesadillas and pina coladas. But for those of you with sensitive skin—skin that becomes excessively reddened, inflamed, irritated, or pained when triggered by environmental or internal factors—it’s important to identify what triggers your particular outbreak.
