Celebrity icon Suzanne Somers has made her mark on the beauty world with her Suzanne Selects monthly subscription box of organic products. Additionally, she has published 27 best-selling books with a recent launch, “A New Way to Age”. Somers is a very special guest on the Happi podcast to talk about what’s new in beauty supplements.
One of America’s most popular and beloved personalities, Somers has achieved extraordinary success as a health care advocate, speaker, entrepreneur, actress, singer, and comedienne. She is the author of 27 books, including 14 New York Times bestsellers. There are currently more than 25 million copies of her books in print.
“My new book focuses on how to avoid the present paradigm of aging,” Somers told Happi in a phone call. “’A New Way to Age” explores everything from probiotics to keep the microbiome in check to senolytics, which is a way to cleanse the cells to become healthier and live longer!”
A savvy businesswoman, Somers was one of the very first celebrity entrepreneurs to understand and apply the power of infomercials and shopping on televisions. She introduced her Somersize food, beauty items, apparel, jewelry and personal fitness products to consumers on Home Shopping Network in 1992, quickly becoming one of HSN’s biggest success stories as a top-selling brand name.
After 17 record-breaking years at HSN, Suzanne moved to Evine Live (formerly ShopNBC) and Canada’s The Shopping Channel, where she expanded her highly successful product offerings into several different categories, including vitamins and supplements. Her Suzanne Organics line includes everything from non-toxic cleaning products to facial creams. She lives in Palm Springs, CA with her husband, Alan Hamel.
