My Look: Sal Stowers (Lani, DAYS)
What item is currently on your must-have list? “My mini-backpack. I hate carrying a purse and this just makes it so much easier, and it’s also awesome to travel with.”
What’s the last great purchase you made? “I splurged on my summer wardrobe. So fun!”
What trend are you incorporating into your wardrobe? “I’m definitely incorporating a more feminine look to my style. Casual, but still sexy and feminine.”
What new product are you using that you love? “I just started using Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream with SPF. I love it. SPF is a must for me, and the tint is a plus.”
How do you pamper yourself? “I’m a skin freak, so I always give myself little facials, and when I’m not working, I go get one. Love my facials.”
What’s your go-to drugstore buy? “Mascara! Can’t live without it.”
What’s your favorite thing in your closet? “My T-shirt dresses. They are so easy to just throw on and yet they’re still sexy and cute.”
Q I am going to Hawaii and I must have that beautiful bathing suit that Steffy [Jacqueline MacInnes Wood] modeled on B&B during the big Forrester/Spectra fashion show in Monte Carlo. Where can I find it? Thanks!

Tying One On: Max Shippee (Graham, Y&R)
Soap Opera Digest: You have posted videos on social media of you tying a tie in the studio, and your knotting skills are quite impressive.
Max Shippee: Thank you. My shoe-tying skills are quite impressive, as well!
Digest: Who taught you to tie a tie so expertly?
Shippee: As a kid, I watched my dad every day for years! Then, over time, I’ve been to enough weddings and occasions to be able to practice. In the acting world, I’ve also had more than a few auditions where I’ve had to be in a suit for a certain role, so I’ll get back in front of the mirror to give it a go.
Digest: Do you typically get it right on the first try?
Shippee: Seldom, though I think on one of my Instagram videos I did! It usually takes me a few tries to get it just right. Of course, I’d be more relaxed about it if I wasn’t so concerned with keeping Graham Bloodworth looking good!
