>>> this morning on "take it off today," jill martin, contributing editor for people style watch and joy bauer. good morning, ladies.
>> good morning.
>> joy bauer in her leather.
>> and matching your accessories.
>> yes, it does.
>> let's start off with scarlet johansson and her skin. always so luminous and so glowing. what does she do to get that glow?
>> it would be fun to start the new year, to share their secrets and give our tips. look at her gorgeous skin. she's sort of sexy bombshell meets the girl next door , constantly in hair and makeup , whether she's in movies, now on broadway. she never goes to bed with her makeup on. she uses cetaphil, which you can get at a drugstore.
>> not a fancy moisturizer.
>> right. sometimes she gets breakouts or has puffy eyes . she takes whatever she has in her freezer, you'll see her laying there with peas. she has that regular skin.
>> which, by the way, works. anything chilled, a cucumber, bag of peas or carrots, reduces inflammation. simpliest thing people can do to get gorgeous, radiant complexions is to eat bright orange and dark green produce. spinach, kale and swiss chard and also carrots and oranges and pumpkin. beta carotene acts like nature's exfoliant, gets rid of the old skin cells. if you want beautiful skin , two handful handfuls of carrots a day. it could be raw, roefed. it works.
>> she drinks a lot of water apparently.
>> yes, stay hydrated.
>> moving on to that gorgeous mane of hers.
>> that gorgeous everything of hers.
>> her hair is always perfect, whether it's up, down, however she styles it.
>> this is actually a picture from 2000 . she's a natural blond.
>> i know.
>> can you believe that? we all pay so much money to look like a natural blond. when she first got to hollywood with the curves and the hair, she sort of went darker and said i need to tone myself down. now this is mostly her own hair. sometimes she has extensions but mostly she wears it up and down. she does not believe in a natural look unless you're giselle. she says go glam, do what you need to do. she eats very healthy. she never deprives herself of anything and eats a lot of water.
>> luscious locks, everybody that's listening, it's all about iron. iron helps to circulate oxygen all over your body but also to your hair follicles which will stimulate growth. oysters, clams, lean red meat , beans, lentils and spinach. looking for a hair rx, one cup of spinach a day and add a couple of table spoons of beans, chick peas , into salads, soups and even pasta entrees.
>> michelle obama , known for her fabulous arms as well. she, of course, is all about health and wellness with her move initiative.
>> she does a great job of inspiring all of us.
>> with her let's move program. she often gets up at 5:30 in the morning to work out with the president at the white house before she drops off the kids at school and does a two-phase nine-minute workout on her arms. she makes each muscle pop. she puts a lot of work into it. she encourages healthy eating . she wants a few french fries , sheech she has a few french fries .
>> you have to hit the floor and it has to be push ups , the most effective. do two to three sets most days of the week. if you can do them on your toes, two thumbs up. if you can't, go right to your knees and do them modified. modest amount of protein throughout the day. 20 to 30 breakfast, 20 to 30 at lunch and 20 to 30 at dinner. you're much more effective at laying down new muscle if you spread it out versus eating it at one large gigantic meal.
>> she's doing it all right, that's for sure. jill martin,
