As we sit down to Thanksgiving Day dinner, we must give thanks for all the things we are grateful for:

Dr. Ariel Ostad

He’s the best turn-the-clock -back dermatologist in town. Go see him for injectables, fillers, fat removal, lifts, tucks, anti-wrinkle miracles and removal of those pesky age spots, to name just a few. (Thankful for a decade knocked off the top.)

897 Lexington Ave., 212-517-7900.

New York Central in the Grand Hyatt, Grand Central

The lounge and restaurant overlook 42nd St. with floor-to-ceiling windows. Cozy up on a cold evening, pre- or post-theater, or just to visit with friends.

Have a glass of wine in the lounge that overlooks the slick and expansive lobby of the Grand, or settle in for a bowl of roasted tomato soup with grilled cheese croutons, branzino with butter beans and spinach, or the spring vegetable stew with braised lentils, roasted mushrooms and goat cheese in a phyllo pastry crust.

42nd and Lexington Ave., 212-883-1234.

Summer, spring, winter or fall, this is the go-to foundation.Summer, spring, winter or fall, this is the go-to foundation.

No Foundation Foundation by Perricone MD

Summer, spring, winter or fall, this is the go-to foundation. It’s smooth, lightweight and blends seamlessly into any skin. High praises just are not enough, we have a No Foundation Foundation altar with candles in our office. $55,


Dr. Heskett at The Wellpath on Park Ave. has this wonder technology called Verjú. You lie down on a bed for 40-minute sessions and an FDA-approved, low-level laser-green light treats your thighs, buttocks and lower abdomen to a laser light show. You don’t feel a thing, it is completely non-invasive.

Verjú’s green wavelength carries even more energy than a red wavelength so it can liberate more lipid material and contour the body, stimulating the removal of cellulite. You can expect to lose from a few millimeters to an inch or more with several sessions. All I can say is: it worked! (Thankful for less tummy.)

903 Madison Avenue, #4F, 212-737-9300,

NARS Orgasm

Any time of year, Orgasm looks good on any skin tone, really it does, and this is why it is so darn popular.

Want some holiday glitter? Get NARS Super Orgasm to ring in the New Year. It will be on my cheeks at my Thanksgiving table. (Thankful for the best cheeks at the dinner table.)

EOS lip balms

A bedtime ritual: Swipe your lips with EOS Coconut Milk Lip Balm (my favorite) or any one of the ten smooth sphere flavors and you’re instantly calmed.

Naturally, it’s a good daytime lip balm in cold weather, too. (Thankful for coconut-kissed dreams.)
