Celeb Beauty: Cat Deeley

It’s crazy! Cat Deeley is 36! Here are some of her incredible beauty tips: I start the day with hot water and lemon.  I don’t crave junk food. Drink lots of water. I think if you look after yourself on a regular basis, and do the prep beforehand, you don’t need to put lots of effort into looking good.
