The Doctors: Shari Belafonte Drinks Two Martinis a Night
Actress Shari Belafonte, known for her role on the show Hotel, appeared on The Doctors TV show to share beauty secrets with fellow ’80s stars Donna Mills, Michele Lee and Morgan Fairchild.
Belafonte said she started her modeling career at age 24 or 25, and then landed her first acting role. Belafonte said she drinks two martinis every night, and a man brought out martinis for all of the actresses to enjoy.
The actress said that she thinks the secret to looking young is in your genes. She said both of her parents looked great as they aged. She also thinks smiling helps with aging.
The Drs: Crossing Your Legs Causes Varicose Veins?
Dr. Travis Stork set up a game of beauty myth or reality for the actresses.
The first statement was for Mills, and Dr. Stork said that crossing your legs causes varicose veins. Mills, who was crossing her legs, said that she thought this is a myth.
She was correct, and Dr. Andrew Ordon said that gaining weight with pregnancy, not being active and being overweight are what cause varicose veins.
The Doctors: Rinsing Your Hair with Beer Makes Hair Thicker
The next statement was for Lee and Dr. Stork said that rinsing your hair with beer makes hair thicker. She said that she thought this was a myth but she was probably wrong.
Dr. Lisa Masterson said that she was right that she was wrong, and beer actually does make your hair thicker because of the circumference of the hair shaft. She said you shouldn’t do this all the time because you’ll smell like a frat house.
The Drs TV: Petroleum Jelly Does Not Prevent Wrinkles
Dr. Stork asked Fairchild if putting petroleum jelly on your face at night to prevent wrinkles was a myth or reality. She said she thought it was a myth because the petroleum jelly would probably clog up your face.
Dr. Ordon said that Fairchild knows her skin and was correct. He said moisturizing is very, very important, but the only things that have been shown to reduce wrinkles are products with retinol in them. Retinol stimulates collagen and helps elastin.
The Doctors: Pore Shape is Based on Genetics
The last myth or reality statement was for Belafonte. Dr. Stork said there were certain cleansers that will minimize pores. She guessed that this is a myth.
Dr. Masterson said this is correct. There are some creams that can temporarily help them, but your pores are your pores. Check out more from the beauty myth or reality game in the video below.
