WASHINGTON (CNN) - California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters has a beauty secret.
"I bathe in moisturizer,'" the 70-year-old congresswoman told the Hill newspaper.
Waters is one of seven lawmakers that made the cut for the Capitol Hill paper's 2009 50 Most Beautiful List, landing in position #5 in the top 10.
Other lawmakers on the list include New Mexico Democrat Rep. Martin Heinrich, who scored the top spot on the list, Washington Republican Rep. Dave Reichert, Colorado Democrat Rep. Betsy Markey, California Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier, Illinois Republican Rep. Aaron Schock, and North Carolina Republican Sen. Richard Burr.
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," Reichert said to CNN about making the list.
Update 6:48 p.m.: Rep. Heinrich has chimed in about making the list: "The honor and photo provided my colleagues and me a brief laugh this morning, and then we went back to work trying to reform our health care system.”
