Arnold confirmed that tinted moisturizers are always a summer essential for a "real soft, flawless matte look; just a soft color, but not too much." Try the AVEDA Inner Light™ Tinted moisturizer SPF 15, $28. It's oil-free and provides sheer coverage with that envious dewy finish.

Arnold also reiterated the importance of exfoliating your face at least two to three times a week in the summer. Her favorite exfoliator is the Botanical Kinetics™ Exfoliant, starting at $9.50, with chamomile and lavender. And, of course, always use sunscreen with a high SPF before enjoying the warm sun rays.

To safely tan your bod, Arnold says she can't live without SUN Tan Overnight Instant Self Tanning Lotion, $28.50. It goes on brown so you can easily see it, doesn't stain clothes and looks natural – the perfect combination for saving your skin without comprising some summertime color!

To make sure you slough off those gross layers of skin that naturally peel and can easily ruin a posed tan, pick up Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate® Body Intensive Exfoliating Treatment, $65. Kim Kardashian has even endorsed this product via Sephora's website, saying, "I love her body scrub (ExfoliKate Body Intensive Exfoliating Treatment) because it's really important to exfoliate in-between spray tans."
