Passions, Rebecca's seductive glow works magic on
Julian -- thanks to the actress who portrays her. Andrea
Evans's healthcare regimen consists of a vegetarian
lifestyle and regular use of preservative free skincare
products by Boscia. SoapCity sat down with Andrea to get
all of the details.
Andrea: "I'm kind of a natural gal. I like to
keep what I put into my body and what I put on my body
as natural and pure as I possibly can. So, when I was
introduced to this product, it just seemed right up my
alley. I also have very sensitive skin and have
absolutely no problem with it whatsoever."
SC Sherrie: "Since you began using Boscia have
you noticed a change in your skin?"
Andrea: "Mostly what I notice for myself is I
have extremely sensitive skin -- I have very oily skin
-- so it's very hard for me to use moisturizers and sun
block because they tend to clog up your pores and make
you greasier than they already are. Boscia does really
well with me and with my skin. It's kept my skin really
nice and moist but hasn't made me greasy, which is
SC Sherrie: "One of the products that you use
is the anti-oxidant recovery treatment C. It seemed like
it had a lot of interesting things in it. What does that
do for your skin?"
Andrea: "It's great! I like to use the
anti-oxidant recovery in the morning when I get up. I
love putting that on my face. It just feels like it
removes a lot of the impurities out of my skin that have
been gathering on my face. It's really, really nice."
SC Sherrie: "What is the one item that you
don't leave the house without?"
Andrea: "Sun-block! [Laughs] So that is
definitely it. The Vital Daily Moisture all the way
around! People should get it pounded into their heads to
stay out of the sun."
SC Sherrie: "I noticed the Night Moisture
Cream has soybean in it -- which is really good for you,
Andrea: "There are all these wonderful herbs
and things which are really great! I mean, you just feel
good putting it on."
SC Sherrie: "Do you have hair products that
you swear by?"
Andrea: "I use Kiehl products for my hair.
They have an everyday shampoo that I absolutely love,
but there is also a Japanese product that I use
constantly and I get it from our hairdressers from
Passions. I don't know how to pronounce it,
because it's all in Japanese! [Laughs]"
SC Sherrie: "You have a column for Healthy
Cooks Magazine where you write about a healthy
lifestyle and share healthy vegetarian recipes. When did
you decide to be a vegetarian?"
Andrea: "I've been a vegetarian about 10 years
SC Sherrie: "What are the benefits?"
Andrea: "I personally feel better. I feel
better, I have more energy and it's easier for me to
watch my weight than it is with eating all the meat
products. It's easier to keep organic and to keep the
antibiotics and chemicals out of your body. The horrible
things that they feed the animals that people eat. And I
found that people kept commenting on how my skin, my
hair, everything seemed to glow when I stopped eating
meat. So it seems there are some beauty benefits (laugh)
as well, but it's just a style of life I like. I do eat
a little fish because I'm married to a carnivore and
(laugh) it just makes life a little easier if I eat a
SC Sherrie: "How do you balance the protein in
your diet? Do you do it with beans and things like
Andrea: "Food combining. I also eat milk
products -- I'm not a vegan. I do eat milk products and
I do eat a little fish, as well as the food combining,
you know, the rice and beans and things. I feel I have
more energy. If it weren't for my husband, I'd give up
the fish entirely and go entirely vegetarian because I
just like the way I feel."
Boscia's products are freshness-dated and
preservative-free, combining the best of nature's
botanicals to soothe, regenerate and protect the skin.
