Bethenny Frankel, 43, knows how to keep it real.

Bethenny Frankel: Makeup-Free — Talk Show Host Takes It Off
After a Twitter follower admired her courage, saying: “I love how you keep it real. No one else has the balls,” Bethenny responded: “My tweeps have balls too! Xo.”
Bethenny consulted Dr. Doris Day to spill her top tips to combat “tired eyes.” She revealed the secrets on her blog:
No pill, cream or product will replace getting the right amount of sleep, Dr. Day says.
The first sign you’re dehydrated is that you feel tired. The second sign is that your skin starts to sag as the water you do have goes to your more “essential” organs (heart, brain, etc.), Dr. Day says. The standard 8 glasses of 8 ounces of water is still a good measure, unless you’re really active. Dr. Day says to make sure you eat your water too, if you’re eating vegetables with high water content, you’re getting more water that way.
Cucumber Honey Eye Brew
Use this to take a “power nap” up to three times a day. The brew will last for at least a week in the fridge because of the honey.
Brew a strong pot of white tea (it can be loose-leaf tea or tea bags, whatever you have). Then, add 2 tablespoons of honey. Add round cucumber slices. Let it cool to room temperature. Put two cucumber slices over your eyes and take deep breaths. Leave on for a few minutes. Rinse and moisturize and you’re good to go!”
