Sandra Taylor shares some of her beauty secrets that keeps her looking so glamourous.
Sandra you and I have been friends for a long time, but I’ve never had the pleasure of working with you and you are such an awesome model. Are there any campaigns that we should be on the lookout for?
Yes, we sure have been friends for a long time. I admire your modeling & accomplishments you've had. I've been spending a lot of time these days doing commercials. I am the spokesperson for the PGA (although not an avid golfer ;). I also did a commercial for Hamilton Beach where I'm the "on the go" scoop girl. Millionaire Monopoly, Time Warner Cable & Agua Caliente which is a 5 star resort in Palm Springs I just shot the billboard & promotional video for.
I know we all love you as a model, but you are also an actress and have done many movies and TV shows, are you working on anything now?
I am in the supporting cast of a feature film due out in February called "When the game stands tall" which is a feature about football co starting Jim Caviziel, Michael Chiklis, Laura Dern & Alexander Ludwig. I play a physical therapist.
How do you balance being a mother with the demands of still working as an actress and model?
It is definitely not an easy task to be a hands-on mom & maintain an acting career. As you know there is so much driving around all over town to meetings & auditions & all the while making your family a priority. My children are a little older now which allows me some flexibility to get back into the swing of things as many years went by that I was a stay at home Mom. Looking back, it's the best decision I ever made. I won't get that time back ever & I can proudly say that I missed nothing in their childhood. It's all about balance & doing what makes you happy. Family first, always.
You have amazing hair, what products do you use?
I use mostly Kerastase products. I love the way they smell & they leave a great shine.
Is there a must share beauty secret you have?
A must share beauty secret I'd say is enough sleep (at least 8 hours) a night. & also happiness. I feel when I am happy, I exude an inner peace & happiness that transcends. One last thing is my Korean spa. I vowed to make it a weekly ritual. It's water therapy & I feel completely centered when I leave there.
How do you stay in such amazing shape?
I stay in shape by working out 5-6 times a week. I attend spin class at least 3 times & I hike up a 4 mile mountain 2-3 times a week. I believe in cross-training so you're not using the same muscles over & over. I'm going to now implement Yoga into my regime. I always like to take it to the next level whenever possible. Maintaining a good diet is also very key. I try & eat as best I can. Nothing fried, no red meat, I try my best to not let myself ever get ravenous as that is when I tend to over eat & eat the wrong thing.
Is there something you want to achieve that you haven’t yet?
Yes, for sure. I'd love to continue making feature films but my dream is to be a regular on a sitcom. I feel comedy is my thing. Garry Marshall has hired me over & over & he said it was my gift. Comedic timing. My dream is to be on a very cleverly written sitcom.
It is tough in Hollywood to maintain a relationship. Do you have any pointers?
I believe any secret to any relationship whether it be with your girlfriends or your man, is to always respect the other person, make them feel good about themselves &. Ever take for granted any good relationship. If you think about it...do you continue to hang out with anyone who makes you feel bad about yourself? I say no. So, when picking a mate or a friend, I also gravitate towards positive people who generally want the same goals in life. Life is short. Kindness matters.
