Beauty Secrets – Amber Katz

posted in: Beauty Secrets

This week’s Beauty Secrets muse is Amber Katz. Amber and I have crossed paths many times over the years, but one of my favorite encounters is when I moderated a panel at HBA Global Expo where she was a speaker. She immediately proved herself to be the real deal – a whip smart beauty who really knows her stuff.

Amber is the founder of, a pop culture-infused beauty blog featuring everything from skin smoothers to hair spray to body scrubs. She is also a freelance writer, consultant and copy writer/editor.

A former financial copy writer, Amber started her blog in 2006 as an outlet from which to rave about her favorite lotions and potions to fellow beautyphiles—instead of her non-target audience of middle-aged (straight) male auditors at the office. Amber has written for Cosmopolitan, Vogue,,,,,,, and Yahoo Beauty.

Here are Amber’s beauty secrets:

  1. To feel beautiful, I’ve learned that working out 5 days a week is integral to my mood.
    “Right now, I’m a fan of Tracy Anderson‘s dance classes (I do them both at home and in the studio) and running along the East River.

2. Having a fresh manicure is vital to my emotional well-being (sad but true) so I get professional manicures every 2-3 weeks. In between, I use the Amope Electronic Nail Care System, the only thing that helps me achieve almond-shaped nails chez moi.

3. I’ve gone through an entire emotional arc with my skin over the past few years, but right now, I seemed to have hacked the system. For me, it’s all about a Spironolactone prescription, Sea Radiance Cleanser, nightly applications of Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid and thrice-weekly swipes with Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads.”
