This week we honor classic beauty Suzanne Somers.

This blonde bombshell made her splash on TV, best known for her role on Three's Company during the 1970's, and then as the beloved mom on the hit 190's show Step by Step. 

Somers is no stranger to all things beauty and skin care. The actress has even written books on ways you can turn back time and look more youthful simply by following the right diet and overall lifestyle.

"It's important to know the jam-packed power of certain foods that will not only protect you from a myriad of health issues, but also will help you with hormone balance," Somers wrote in her book entitled, "I'm Too Young for This! The Natural Hormone Solution to Enjoy Perimenopause."

"Ideally, your food choices should be organic and pesticide free. Beef should be organic and grass-fed; fish should be wild not farm raised," Somers instructed. "It is difficult to get organic food at most restaurants, so when possible eat at home. When not, do your best." 

Somers is all about challenging conventional views about aging. "What if I told you that you were in complete control of your end point? You are," writes the star. 

"What if you approached aging as a coach would ready a baseball team for the World Series win? What would happen then?"

The actress is also a big proponent of supplements and vitamins. When asked just what is keeping her so vibrant and youthful well into her sixties, Somers has no problem sharing her extensive routine.

Admitting to a whopping 60 pills in addition to injections on a daily basis, Somers says she begins with rubbing a syringe of estrogen on one arm, every day. For two weeks out of the month, she rubs progesterone on the other, as reported by Fox News.

Somers says she can't start her day without taking 40 pills, 15 of which she downs in a thick, yellow smoothie. Somers ends her day with an additional 20 pills at night before bed. 

Clearly very passionate about maintaining her body, some may view Somer's beauty routine to be a bit extreme, but the star is not without practical advice.

"Every choice you make on a daily basis brings you closer to or further away from that picture you have of your end point," Somers said.

"Are you vibrant? Are you healthy, energetic, and happy? Do you eat right, exercise, sleep well, and manage your stress? Every time you make a positive choice you move yourself toward your projected goal. Every bad choice leads you in the other direction."
