As a top hoofer on Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff might have Hollywood’s best products at her disposal, but when it comes to beauty, the dancer revealed to PEOPLE last night, she’d prefers grocery store shelves to department store counters. “I’ve got to be honest,” she confided at the Entertainment Weekly and Women in Film Pre-Emmy Party, “I don’t spend a lot of time or money on buying expensive products, because there are so many natural ways — like you can use olive oil for your skin. You don’t even have to spend hundreds of dollars on an eye cream,” she says frankly. Karina traces her love of kitchen-cupboard beauty to her Greco-Russian upbringing. “Have you seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding? How I think they had Windex that cured everything. With my family, Aloe Vera cures everything. If you have a blister: Aloe Vera. If you have a wrinkle: Aloe Vera. So, I think it comes with being half-Greek and half-Russian. We’ve always been into natural.” And she’ll soon be making her family beauty fix-alls accessible to everyone. “I’m actually writing a lifestyle book. Every chapter is going to have like a natural remedy, from taking eye-makeup off with diluted olive oil, to [rubbing] an ice cube frozen with squeeze lime or lemon in it all over your face to get circulation [going] and have your muscles be more toned, to just doing avocado oil hair mask.” Tell us: What at-home beauty remedies never fail you? –Reporting by Jed Dreben
