Hot stuff celebrities love



Ron Howard’s got quite a talented family. See — actually hear — for yourself by downloading an audio edition of his wife Cheryl Howard Crew’s 2005 novel, “In the Face of Jinn,” out Monday. The former “Happy Days” star directs; the voiceover is courtesy the couple’s daughter, actress Bryce Dallas Howard, who hired a dialect coach for the many accents in the book, about two sisters on a dangerous trip to India. $7.49 at www.audible.com


Do as Jennifer Lopez does: Load up on sunblock when you’re exposed. As the face of L’Oreal Paris Sublime Sun, the actress-singer is helping bring awareness to the brand’s new philanthropic alliance with the Melanoma Research Alliance. Through Dec. 31, for every SS product sold in the U.S., $1 will be donated to the cause. Find out your so-called Skin IQ at lorealparisusa.com/sun.


Husband and wife team Jesse and Carly Burnett care about life’s little comforts. The beach-loving New York couple founded TKEES (rhymes with tiki), a line of upscale flip flops, while on a trip to St. Barth’s. Chill stars like Rachel Bilson, Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum and Eva Longoria appreciate how the sandals transition from day to night. $50 at www.TKEES.com, Calypso St. Barth, Scoop.
