Walking the Red Carpet: Celebs Flock to Ruth's Skincare for Signature Treatment-- Even McSteamy!!LA Story GOLDEN GLOBES SCOOP Blog

It's Golden Globes time and nothing is more stressful than walking that red carpet and knowing that everyone is trying to find any tiny flaw-- as well as admiring how great you look. When it comes to celebrities, they know that they want to look their best.

So it was no surprise to find Grey's Anatomy "McSteamy" Eric Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart visiting  Ruth's Skincare on Melrose for a little R&R for both of them.

Treatments du jour:

For Rebecca Gayheart:
Collagen Nourishing facial-- designed to nourish, tone, and tighten
(60 minute facial depending on the type of facial)

Eye lash tint
Eyebrow wax
Body massage


Plus she decided to include a bottle of the very unique fragrance "Caroline" , formulated by Ruth and named for her daughter. This luscious fragrance opens with top notes of citrus lavender,  then warms to a heart of bergamot and jasmine notes and dries down to sensuous sandalwood to create a fresh-- yet slightly powdery-- scent.

Eric Dane is no slouch when it comes to taking care of his skin-- and he's serious about it! - He chose the Buttermilk Thermo-Mask Facial.  The Thermo-Mask is enriched with vitamins E, B, and 95% vegetable enzymes (such as papaya). It is designed to heal and soothe the face with heated minerals from the Dead Sea. It's a Ruth's Skin Care signature treatment!

Ruth’s Skin Care on Melrose

Ruth’s Skin Care recently celebrated 25 years of business in West Hollywood,
and the move to a new location across the street, at 8500 Melrose. The grand opening celebration included Ruth (who owns the salon), along with her husband Avi, her son Tal, and nine year old daughter Caroline. Celebrity guests, West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce members, and City Councilmember Abbe Land were on hand to watch the official ribbon cutting ceremony. Guests mingled as they enjoyed champagne, caviar, and left with a bottle of “Caroline” perfume that was inspired by Ruth’s daughter.

Ruth Malka, the owner of Ruth’s Skin Care, is a vibrant and beautiful woman with a flawless complexion. At age 49, she appears much younger than she is, and just looking at her is the best endorsement for her salon.

Some of Ruth’s Skin Care celebrity client following includes Apollonia,    Rachel Hunter,

Jennifer Aniston, Renee Zellweger, Jennifer Connelly, David Charvet, Rebecca Gayheart, Eric Dane (aka Dr. McSteamy on Grey’s Anatomy), singer Samantha Mumba, Lilly Tartikoff, Dr. Jason Diamond (Dr. 90210), Joan Van Ark, Jen Sibley, Iilene Chaiken (The L Show), Jeremy Piven and more.

No doubt Grey's Anatomy hunk Eric Dane was looking McSteamy hot at the Globes. He and wife Rebecca Gayheart made a stop at Ruth's Skin Care in West Hollywood for some glam-squad action. 

Dane had a Buttermilk Thermo-Mask facial, massage and lash tinting. Yes, lash tinting! Ms. Gayheart also enjoyed the tinting and massage, plus a Nourishing Collagen facial. 

Ban Unwanted Hair
You'll be surprised at what trim brows or a good wax can do for creating a refined, stylish look. Locals flock to Ruth's Skin Care (Melrose, L.A.; 310-652-5220) for shaping or ridding unwanted hair; I like Mario Tricocci in Chicago when I'm at home during the holidays. Buy a pair of high quality tweezers to maintain work in between visits.

Style InsiderMcSteamy Gets Even Steamier

Eric Dane and Rebecca GayheartRecently, "Grey's Anatomy" hunk Eric Dane aka McSteamy, heated things up with his wife, actress Rebecca Gayheart, at a West Hollywood day spa.

While the sexy lovebirds hit trendy Ruth's Skin Care salon on Melrose Ave. for some relaxing facials, Dane couldn't help but get in the Valentine's Day mood. We're told that as Rebecca was getting a collagen facial, Eric snuck into the room and pretended to be one of the aestheticians, so he could give her a foot massage. Lucky girl! Since Rebecca had her eyes closed during her treatment, she didn't know Eric was performing the sensual rub until after it was done. Awww, he had us at hello!

Celebrity lifestyle guru Aly Scott, from Style Chic, tells TMZ that Ruth's now has a special couples massage room with two beds and a private stone shower. Which can only mean things will get even steamier the next time Eric and Rebecca stop by!


To get rid of all the dead skin on your face and body, you need a good facial. One of Hollywood’s best kept secret is Ruth’s Skin care, Ruths Skin Care , which is known to cater to stars like Jennifer Aniston, Rebecca Gayheart and her hubby Eric Dane.
