The 1984 Miss Teen Ohio works hard to bring the inside out. She jets off to spas, follows a low-sugar diet (she's diabetic) and hits a treadmill or stationary bike at least three times a week to keep her 5'6½", 112-lb. frame in shape. Berry also schedules twice-weekly appointments with a cosmetologist for glycolic-acid facials that smooth lines and draw impurities from the skin, because, she says, "onscreen, my face is as big as a Buick." But as she looks to the future, her dedication to beauty doesn't include plastic surgery. "I have to make my looks last as long as I can," she says. "When they're gone, they're gone."
