"I live on that because I have oily skin, the T-zone," she said. "It just keeps me looking fresh."
She added, "I love my P50. It’s a toner. A lot of people don’t know about it, but what it does is on a daily basis kind of removes dead skin cells so that you’re starting with a clean slate every day. And it’s just really great for your skin, and then you moisturize after that. I used a couple different moisturizers. I use Clarins; I use Embryolisse."
Embryolisse Lait-Crème, $12, Amazon
To care for her brunette locks, de Lesseps says, "I love my Unite dry shampoo."

"You shouldn’t wash your hair too much, and dry shampoo is a really best kept secret," de Lesseps adds. "It really is. You know, I do color so I don't want to wash my color out, so I try to shampoo my hair much less. My son actually inspired me. He said, 'Mom, why do you wash your hair so often? It’s not good for you.'"
De Lesseps also has a few recommendations for drugstore beauty buys.
"Neutrogena makeup remover — that’s one of my favorites," she said. "And Pond's cold cream. My mother used it forever. She’s 89 and she doesn’t have a wrinkle on her forehead. First of all, she’s a freak of nature. They don’t make people like that anymore. She’s never had a facial."
