1. Keep it au naturel

Shiseido Synchro Skin Tinted Gel Cream SPF 30 is the perfect natural finish cream for my skin. It gives me that golden glow all year round with SPF.”

2. Commitment-phobe, who?

“Finding the time to work out is really important for me. I build into my schedule the week ahead and try not to skip on the commitment. I mix it up between Hot 8 Yoga, Barrys Bootcamp, and F45 Training.”

3. Anti-aging has no age limit

Dr. Barbara Sturm Anti-Aging Body Cream really makes a difference with my skin. I find it at Violet Grey on Melrose Place in Los Angeles and I use it all over, all year round. I highly recommend it!”

4. Crash-diets, be gone!

“I found maintaining a balanced meal plan year round has been extremely beneficial for me. The days of crash-dieting are well and truly over! It’s easier than ever to eat clean, thanks to delivery meal plans and services like Sakara Life.”

5. Spray to perfection

“I’m extremely cautious about my skin and sun protection, which is why sunscreen is so important to me. My way to solve the summer glow look is that I have a natural base spray tan once a week at my home.”

Well, ladies, here’s hoping Charlotte’s tips are exactly what you need to kill the summer beauty game! For more, be sure to follow her on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
