Anne Heche launches sunscreen and talks about her face AKA beauty post

Anne Heche's Smart Suncare Solution


Anne Heche was recently here in our studios for Access Hollywood Live, and let me tell you, as beautiful as she is on screen, she is even more lovely in person. Her skin is radiant. And as someone who is also fair, I can really appreciate how she's taken such good care of her skin.

"I often get asked what I do for my skin and my answer is always the same," Anne says. "I use sunblock. I have learned that to have good skin you must keep it protected from the sun."

Anne is so diligent about protecting her family from the dangers of the sun that she's taken matters into her own hands.

She's just launched "Tickle Time" Mineral Powder Sunblock for kids! The water-resistant sunblock is made of 100 percent all-natural minerals and offers complete UVA/UVB protection.

"We needed the purest minerals for the sunblock, and funnily enough that was the easiest part," Anne says. "Once we partnered with La Bella Donna Mineral Skincare, we knew we had the best product on the market. Mineral rock is a natural barrier to sun, refined through a triple jet milling process into a micronized powder that won't absorb into the skin. Tickle Time Sunblock creates a complete barrier. La Bella Donna knows pure minerals better than anyone and with their wisdom we have learned and come to love the benefits of minerals as much as they do."

Anne had been on a hunt to find a sunscreen that worked for her family. She was having a hard time getting the boys to sit still long enough to apply greasy creams and sticky sprays that they hated. That's what's cool about Tickle Time's powder formula...it's super easy to apply with a big fluffy built-in brush. So unique... and fun for kids!

"Homer and Atlas [her children] now ask for Tickle Time," Anne says. "They remind James and me if we forget. That's a miracle. Because it's FUN, they have learned to take care of their skin. Offering the Tickle Time solution so that kids can feel the pride of taking care of themselves is something I couldn't have foreseen. If you ask me how I feel right now, I'd say I feel elated. I'm actually helping kids. That's a dream come true. And my kids are helping kids by being the example. They are the perfect Tickle Time models because they BELIEVE in the product and they are telling the TRUTH that it works. Just look at their skin!"

The 100 percent chemical free sunblock is $35 and available in three translucent colors (fair, light to medium and medium to darker) to best match your child's skin tone. Anne couldn't be more excited that Tickle Time is finally here.

"It was just an idea I had one day and now it's going to be in the hands of hopefully more than just my children, protecting their sweet faces. The product that has kept my children from sunburn, tears, annoyance and frustration every morning is now going to alleviate that problem for other families. I can't believe it!" she explains.

"Bottom line, I'd say my family feels very proud that we've created a product that helps people," Anne says. "I asked Homer if he is proud of Tickle Time Sunblock this morning and he lit up, 'Yeah!' he beamed. It started as like this little sunblock idea and then we were laughing about it, and now it's launching!"

I said, "I know, cool, right?" "Cool, Mom."

And that right there makes all the hard work worth it! My kid thinks I'm cool today. (Jeez, I wonder what I'll have to come up with tomorrow...?)

I know it's a beauty post but I have a health question. Sorry for being a bit OT!
Has anyone here taken a Zpack? I went to the doctor today and found out I have bronchitis. So I took my two pills for today and need to take one each day for the next 5 days. By Friday night, could I drink? I have lots of labor day weekend festivities planned! I figured I could take it today, tomorrow, Thursday, early Friday morning and should be okay by Friday night at 10ish? Has anyone here drank while on the Zpack?

Oh and this has been my savior the last few months. Really helped clear my skin up. Has anyone used this mask?
redaodai 28th-Aug-2012 07:52 pm (UTC)
Yes, it's really good. Although I tried not to use it too much. Otherwise my relatively clear skin would be over-purged.

I wanna try the Red Clay Powder Moroccan by Now.

I swear by this mask! I mix the clay with apple cider vinegar. It is the best.
msloserrific 28th-Aug-2012 08:57 pm (UTC)
Yes! It also works great for hair!

Which stores do you find this in?

sorry i'm late, but i was wondering when you use this do you use apple cider vinegar or water to mix it?
judgmental 31st-Aug-2012 04:36 am (UTC)
I use it once a week, I love it

I've taken a Zpack for a sinus infection and it cleared it right up. And idk about drinking, I've drunk on antibiotics because that's how I roll.
insertcandyhere 28th-Aug-2012 08:12 pm (UTC)
lmao werk.
i just started today so i feel like by friday i should be close to better. i'm thinking on friday and saturday i can take it first thing in the morning and by night time (12+ hours later) it should be fully absorbed and i'll be ok.

I've taken it before and since you're planning on finishing it before drinking I think you'll be fine.

Azithromycin, although you normally only take it for 5 days, is meant to stay in your system for about 10 days, so minimal drinking this weekend would be recommened
hotcement 28th-Aug-2012 08:44 pm (UTC)
i definitely recommend minimal drinking if you're finishing the pack in the morning and planning to drink by that same night. especially since you have bronchitis, just try to take it easy.

my brother had to take that since hes been hospitalized for unknown chestpain, but the nurse told him no alcohol (he's 17, but anywho)

I agree with all the other comments, but be careful when drinking on the Z pack. You won't feel any different while drinking, but it could lower your immune response. Basically you could get sick again if you drink a lot because it lowers your white blood cell count, but I haven't read anything about increased liver damage from azithromycin.
