Hot stuff celebrities love



Wanna be famous? Simon Cowell can help. The music mogul invites you to join “The You Generation.” The global online talent contest, starting Wednesday, seeks people with “unconventional” talents — from musicians and photographers to magicians and chefs. Entrants can upload their pieces on a dedicated YouTube channel. There will be prizes every two weeks, and a grand prize at the end of the year.


Before her thyroid cancer scare, Brooke Burke talked about a different health issue: melasma, or hyperpigmentation on the face ( Courteney Cox has it, too). The condition is sparked by the overproduction of melanin due to hormonal fluctuations, often associated with pregnancy. Coral Gables dermatologist Dr. Flor Mayoral is advising patients to use PrecisionMD’s Dermaceutic Peel. Popular in France, the in-office/at-home combo can wipe out unsightly brown patches in just four weeks. www.precisionmdskin.com.


Celebrity moms like Brooke Shields, Tiffani Thiesen and Jessica Alba who want to make their kids feel special — as well as teach them how to read — have jumped on “I See Me!” custom books. The lushly illustrated learning tools spell out a particular child’s name within a story so the result is not only cute but super personal. Who knows? Interest them in words, and you may have a little budding writer on your hands. Order at www.iseeme.com.


For all you domestic gods and goddesses, the new Kenneth Cole Reaction Home collection was recently unveiled at Bed Bath & Beyond. Think urban and understated, in chic neutral tones with the occasional splash of color. The collection, with prices ranging from $9.99 to $499, includes duvets, comforters, towels, bath accessories and rugs. Among the inspirations for the line: wallet hardware and prints from a blouse.
