How To Be Over 40 And Look Under 30



What's a gal to do when she's over 40 and still wants to look and feel 20? I can tell you what my crew of hot wannabe 20's do... to "bring it"! We make a checklist full of BS! Yes, I said BS!!! Get your mind out of the gutter, I'm talking about
1. Body 2. Skin - get these 2 items in check and you're a force to be reckoned with at any age; and
no, I'm not going to tell you to do some 90 day workout or some 12 Step facial regime that no one has time to do! This is my little black book of secrets and shortcuts, that I'm about to share with you, on how to cheat the system, and cash in on our Fountain of Youth, right here in NYC....

The Secret Weapon - Donna Fay

Enter, Donna Fay "The Beauty Expert", on Park Avenue ( of course ), at Dr. Steven Pearlman's office. She doesn't take her title lightly, and she is not playing games. Trust me, she knows how to make your skin obey! Her own skin is flawless, like a porcelain doll; so I knew she practiced what she preached. I set off to go have a chat with "The Beauty Expert", and see why all of NYC's celebs and A -listers keep trying to hide their secret weapon - Donna Fay.

Being somewhat conservative and a chicken, I thought it may be nice to try something on the natural side. After discussing several really cool options with Donna (you can see her complete menu of treatments at or email Donna Fay directly for a consult at I decided the right thing for me was going to be some Micro-Needling with Donna Fay for my face and neck, a little au- naturale; and then a little Botox Cocktail to the forehead with Dr. Pearlman.

Mother Natures Little Helpers

I think we all know what Botox is. I like to call her Mother Natures loving Step Sister. But, before I go any further, what is Micro-Needling you may ask? Does it hurt? Noooooo! Is it the greatest thing ever? Yessss! Now read on! Simply put, it's used for treating fine lines, scars, acne, and the overall improvement of your skins texture and appearance. During the procedure, tiny needles are used to create a controlled reaction to the skin that allows it to naturally produce collagen and elastin again, just like young skin.

 Thank God, because I was really going for a 'Eva Mendez' look!!

So, Donna Fay had a tall order with me! 😉This process results in the improvement of the appearance of wrinkles- yipeeee! Let's get this show on the road then!

Get Your Girls And Go

Sounds simple right? So, what would any grown woman do when they finally decide on which procedures at the doctors? They call their friends and see if they want to go too! So, I took a trip with my friend, the stunning Maria Bach, (former wife of rocker Sebastian Bach), and we headed right over to see Donna Fay. We both ended up having the Micro- Needling, and a great time talking with Donna Fay; who listened, educated us, and told us about all of her other fabulous services.

Wrinkles? Hell No!

Fast forward 2 weeks later , these Cougars (as some haters may say) are looking more like kittens! Hotter and younger then ever. The results , unmistakable, lines reduced, skin that was literally glowing, and looking better and brighter as each day passes.

All thanks to the fabulous treatments by Donna Fay "The Beauty Expert".

A long time real estate client of mine said I looked radiant and asked me what I had been using on my skin! Prior to visiting Donna Fay and Dr. Pearlman, I had literally been battling dry, cracked skin and new wrinkles (completely gross), for the last 2 years with no success! They truly gave my skin a second chance to look super young again, and I can't wait to go back and add this to my new routine! Next on my skin "to do" list..., I can't wait to go back for my lunchtime peel! Don't look for me at lunch in Cipriani's anymore having martini's, I'll be sitting in Dr. Pearlman's office instead!

Age Gracefully? Never! Defy It!
