    Personal Best: Q&A With Kim Raver

    The '24' actress shares her diet, exercise, and beauty secrets.


    Soulful Sweating

    "When I’m in L.A. and New York, I’m addicted to 'SoulCycle.' It’s a good combination of [indoor cycling] with a little bit of soul and a lot of workout. You walk out of there dripping wet -- it’s awesome."

    Om Rx

    "Yoga is very healing. The breathing is so important. I think we pretty much hold our breath all day long with all the stress we deal with. Yoga slows me down and gives me balance."

    Skin Splurge

    "An amazing tip some fashion gurus told me about is a skin purifying oil called Shu Uemura. It takes off my makeup but doesn’t strip my skin of the oils it needs. I also treat myself to Crème de la Mer. It’s stupid expensive but I kind of swear by it."

    Bright Spot

    "I usually go for a smoky eye. A little trick is to put lightener above your tear duct. Take a little on your finger and dab it right in the corner, against your nose. For me it opens up the whole eye."

    Speed Shading

    "When you have kids you get a much quicker beauty regime. You have to compact the entire process into a nanosecond. I can do my makeup now in 15 minutes. It would’ve taken an hour and change before kids."

    Balance, Baby!

    "I have to utilize my time to the max. I even remember nursing Leo on the set of Lipstick Jungle and memorizing my lines at the same time. You compact everything, but it’s worth every minute."
