How to Beat The Heat with Summer Beauty Products

This morning I stopped by San Diego Living on Channel 8 to show off some of my favorite products for summer.  These products and tips will help you stay smear and sweat proof through the deadly summer heat! 

I rely on all of these products to help me keep my makeup looking fresh, and my skin and hair protected.  Enjoy!
