You People Star La La Anthony Shares Swimsuit Photo Saying "Happy Birthday" To Kim Kardashian

She gets skincare tips from Kelly Rowland.

You People star La La Anthony gave bestie Kim Kardashian a very sweet birthday shout-out on her social media in October. Anthony, 41, shared a picture of the two friends posing in bikinis next to a pool, plus other snaps of their friendship over the years. "Happy Birthday Kimmie… it's crazy how we come from two completely different worlds yet we connect on so many levels! I love you so much!!!! Your heart is unmatched. Your loyalty is top tier. You are one of the hardest working people I know yet you always make time NO MATTER WHAT! I honestly don't know what I would do without you!! Let's make some more crazy memories this year!!! I could laugh all day thinking about some of the funniest things we've done," she captioned the post. Here's how Anthony stays fit, happy, and healthy.

Anthony was inspired to start taking her skincare regimen seriously thanks to singer Kelly Rowland. "She's obsessed with skincare and making sure all of us take care of our skin and our bodies. She's always sending tips on what to do," she says. "So if you're friends with her, she's going to make sure your skin is on point – no matter what. She's all about taking care of yourself and doing things to continue to nourish mind, body and soul. So when I have questions or need advice when it comes to those things, she's definitely who I call."


Dogpound Workout

Anthony works out after dropping her son off at school. "I get up at 7AM because my son… doesn't sleep in yet. I wish he would," she says. "So we wake up at 7 and I get him off to school, and then I go to the gym. I work out at The Dogpound—it's pretty popular with the Victoria Secret models. I like the intensity and the music. Some gyms don't have good music…how can you motivate and workout with classical music playing? Here, it's all hip hop and trap music—it gets me going. I definitely try and take the time out to get a facial or a massage. Sometimes at The Dogpound they work you so hard, they give you a little massage.


Hot Oils and Leave-In Conditioner

Anthony has become diligent about taking care of her hair. "I'm trying to pay more attention to my hair," she says. "Hot oil treatments and conditioning are all really important. On Star, I was wearing a wig with some bangs—that makes it easy to ignore your own hair. I love Kim Kimble products—she does my hair in LA. And I love the Oribe Moisture Surge Mask you can leave on for a couple hours… I try to wash my hair only once a week, but with the working out, sometimes it's more. If you go to Dogpound, you know how much you sweat."


Body Exfoliation

Anthony loves exfoliating head-to-toe. "Scrubs are my favorite," she says. "Something like the Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish is always in my shower. The other day, I was watching TV and saw and infomercial. Now, I never buy things from infomercials, but it had this thing that you use in the shower and it's kind of like a Clarisonic for your body. So I got it! Everyone made fun of me for it but I swear it's the best thing I've ever bought. It was $12.99 and I was joked that I was going to get one for everyone this Christmas because it's my new favorite thing in the world."


Time Time Routine

Anthony never skips her nightly wind-down beauty routine. "[I am] more conscious of taking care of my skin and doing a daily and nightly routine," she says. "You only get one face – you don't want to mess it up! You want to look your best so you can feel your best, whatever that is. It's important to take care of yourself so that you can perform in whatever you're doing at the highest level."
