The following post is an advertorial.

Now that we’ve finally hit the hot summer months, it’s time to get your skin in show-off shape from head to toe. Pretty.Smart. has tips this month on how to prep from home — without touching your vacation savings. Beauty expert Nina Sutton is dishing the insider information on getting spa-worthy smooth.

You don’t need to dedicate hours to getting soft, smooth, and touchable skin. Who has that kind of time anyway? Instead, lather up in the shower with Caress Whipped Souffle Ultra Silkening Body Wash, which comes in two yummy scents: Blackberry Cream and White Peach Cream. Are you more of a beauty bar kind of girl? Then try Caress Velvet Bliss, which hydrates and silkens while infusing a blackberry and vanilla scent into your skin, keeping you smelling great all day long.

Nina also has a beauty bonus this month about how to get the perfect sunless self-tan. With her easy step-by-step downloadable guide, any worries of orange streaks and blotches – as well as sun scares and tanning salon costs — will be a thing of the past. Even better, if you want that tan to last, check out Nina’s video about body brushing. Then visit Pretty.Smart. for more summer skin advice and beauty tips.
