1. Always wear sunscreen, and don't forget to apply to your chest.  There are fewer skin cells per inch on your neck and chest, so they tend to be thinner and more prone to aging and damage.  Just like your face, they must be protected.  For maximum protection, try her SPF 55 Serum Tinted Sunscreen, $45.

2.  If you suffer from heat rash, cooling the body down is really important.  Take a cool bath and pat (don't rub) dry afterwards- and use a lotion without heavy oils in it.  Her clients swear by her Goat Milk Body Lotion, $32.


3.  Stay out of the real sun and use self-tanner (Kate's Somerville360 Tanning Towelettes are a face!)  Trick everyone with a gorgeous glow without the damage.

4.  Keep your skin hydrated by following this simple steps: exfoliate to slough dead skin cells off, hydrate your skin with water and steam, and lock it in with a good moisturizer (she recommends her Oil Free Moisturizer, $65).  This external hydration must be complemented with internal hydration-make sure to drink lots of water throughout the day.
