Louisa Graves

I became a top beauty expert as a result of doing what I love, sharing budget-friendly advice that helps all women, and even some men, look and feel their best.

My mission began years ago when my career as a celebrity body parts model in Hollywood for A-list stars sparked an idea to write a book about what I knew best – keeping my skin and body in “camera-ready” shape without the need for costly products or treatments.

I’ve been a guest beauty expert on TV shows and networks including The Talk, The Doctors, Extra, The Discovery Channel, The Style Network and on over 500 terrestrial radio shows including: Sirius XM Doctor Radio, KIIS FM, WGN Chicago, Hot 97 New York, KEarth Los Angeles and many more.

My age-proofing tips are frequently featured in Women’s World Magazine column, “Ask America’s Ultimate Expert”, in FIRST Magazine for Women, in Bridal Fantasy and more. She has written articles and shared many tips on the following sites and blogs: AOL/Huffington Post; AOLHealth, SheKnows, DrLaura, Galtime, MSNBC, WomansDay, AOLJobs, ParentingPink, ShareCare, Hitched, and Intent, to name a few.

As a celebrity body parts model I doubled my parts in over 1000 commercials, TV shows and movies for A-list stars including:

  • Jennifer Garner
  • Courtney Thorne-Smith
  • Penelope Cruz
  • Alyssa Milano
  • Kate Walsh
  • Debra Messing
  • Cindy Crawford
  • Rachel Weisz
  • Gwyneth Paltrow
  • Milla Jovovich
  • Heather Locklear
  • Patricia Heaton
  • Paulina Porizkova
  • one of the Desperate Housewives
  • and many more….

My book, “Hollywood Beauty Secrets: REMEDIES to the RESCUE“ is doctor-recommended. As a result, I’ve done over 500 radio interviews, and I’ve appeared on myriad TV shows including: The Doctors, Extra, Style Network, Discovery Channel, Soap Talk, Los Angeles KTLA and KCAL Morning News, and many more.

My slimming tonic landed me on the cover of Woman’s World Magazine and one of my readers lost over 150 lbs. and reduced her mediations from 17 down to ONE! And last year, I was acknowledged in popular book, “Career Comeback”, by Springboard Press as one of THE top two Rejuvenation Experts in Los Angeles, noting nine pages of my top age-proofing tips for women re-entering the job market.

I’ve made it my mission to help women solve their “head to toe” challenges with “look and feel good” tips that they can afford. I continue to research and uncover THE most potent products on the planet and offer them at the lowest prices at my web site HollywoodBeautySecrets.  And I provide daily tips on this blog.

Once women try my tips, or supplement and product suggestions, they become energized and empowered, look and feel more beautiful, confident, and ready to take on life’s day to day challenges with much less stress! What a privilege it is for me to do my job! I am truly blessed and excited to stay on the pulse of what women want.

Want the latest updates on how to naturally uplift your mood, burn fat, increase energy, repair and prevent wrinkles, sagging and thinning skin, ignite fat-burning, tone & tighten the body in just 10 minutes a day, reduce enlarged pores, blemishes and fade acne scars, age spots, pigmentation spots, stretch marks, strengthen weak nails, rejuvenate hands, stop falling and thinning hair, hydrate, banish cellulite, puffy eyes, dark circles, cracked heels, dry lips, and more?

“…Louisa is a well known hands and body parts model in Hollywood and in order to stay on top of her game she has done countless hours of research to find out what REALLY works to enhance beauty and reduce the effects of aging. We are very fortunate that Louisa has chosen to share her proven research with us! Louisa has also worked diligently to uncover a number of wonderful products she sells at budget-friendly prices to the public through her website. As a physician who specializes in hormone balance and nutrition, I really appreciate the care she has taken to focus on the beneficial effects of certain nutrients for the hair, skin and nails. Most importantly, the products she recommends do not contain and Bisphenol A or phthalates. These toxins are found in many other hair and skin care products and are known to cause disruption in the balance of many of our hormones. I would feel very comfortable recommending Louisa’s products to my patients and I use many of them myself. I congratulate Louisa on her many accomplishments and thank her for sharing her wisdom and beauty secrets with all of us!”

I have recommended this site to my family and friends because Louisa has obviously well-researched her findings.”

“I have been a true skin care junkie most of my life, always looking for the latest and greatest product or tool offering that “WOW” result! I admit, when it comes to assessing skin care products, I am a staunch, “tough as nails” critic who might possibly be looking for the impossible; some unrealistic result. I say this because in 20 plus years of an exhausting search, which includes more than a dozen at-home skincare machines/gadgets/tools, hundreds of prescription and dermatologist recommended products, products sold only in the most exclusive shops and catalogues, in-office peels and 100’s of other products from internet companies and consumer top pics on threads like makeupalley.com, I have NEVER found that “WOW” result!!!! That all changed when I came across a website that peaked my curiosity. I placed a phone call to inquire about some of the products, expecting to leave a message. Little did I know that this call would be my magic moment, the one that would end my search and change my life…forever!!! I was met with the warmest, most informative, most sincere, passionate and scientifically sound explanation to every one of my questions…… by the skin care GURU herself, Louisa Graves!!! I was so completely absorbed in every last detail of her beauty tips and advice, frantically writing down every spoken word. I have no doubt that Louisa was born with this passion; that inherent in her genes is this love and commitment to her work!!!! She is so current in her knowledge, able to warmly embrace and clearly articulate the answer to each of my questions. She is hands down more competent than any professional with whom I have ever consulted! … Most Sincerely

Dr. C. MarkleAssistant Clinical Professor, Yale University School of Medicine

“Want to get more bang for your diet and exercise buck? Then take Louisa’s advice and combine doses of apple cider vinegar with garlic supplements. These supplements, which contain concentrated amounts of the good stuff and none of the odor, are one of the most effective means of reducing fast.”

“I am exposed to the sun quite regularly which concerned me. I learned from Louisa’s book that only a few sunscreens contain effective UV protection. I e-mailed the effective ingredients she specified to look for on sunscreen labels to all my friends and they in turn e-mailed their friends. Louisa helped a lot of people who were misinformed about sun protection.”
