(BPT) - The Latin pop singer Leslie Grace is dropping a new single this summer that’s sure to put a smile on your face. Meanwhile, she’s also sharing her top beauty tips and tapping into beauty trends to shine from the inside out all summer long!

Moisturize every day

This should go without saying, but it needs to be emphasized. Moisturize your skin as much as possible, utilizing skin care creams and masks. Be sure to use moisturizers with built-in SPF protection to guard your skin from harmful UV rays and to help prevent age lines and wrinkles.

Keep skin bronzed & dewy

Everyone wants a sun-kissed glow during the warm summer season. To achieve this look, brush bronzer over your cheeks and eyes and add a highlight above your cheekbones to create a radiant, dewy look.

Style your hair with braids

Channel your inner bohemian goddess by adding a few micro-plaits to your tresses. Accent braids were all the rage during Fashion Week and are a super simple and chic way to dress up a down ‘do. You can leave your hair down and add a single braid on one side or work a braid into a simple pony or bun.

Maintain a radiant smile

I believe any woman’s most inviting feature is her smile. A neat red lip paired with minimal makeup will always be a winner. To achieve a statement lip, include highlighted accents in the center of the mouth and Cupid’s bow. To accompany bold lips, I use my favorite toothpaste, Radiant by Colgate Optic White. It has a new formula that actually whitens teeth inside and out, creating a radiant white smile.

Keep a clean diet

Eat lots of fruits, vegetables and foods that are rich in vitamins A, C and E. I recommend daily consumption of citrus fruits like oranges, kiwi and melon. Don’t forget that guava has a lot more vitamin C than a common orange! And of course, drink plenty of water, as it helps keep your skin hydrated and balanced.
