Skimm Her Life is a series in our weekly newsletter, Skimm Your Life, where smart women share their favorite products. Psst…check out Katie’s last interview with us for more awesome recs and Megababe's latest launch, Après Shave.

Smartest purchase you’ve made recently?

This foldable sun hat from Lorna Murray is my current favorite travel accessory. It's the perfect summer hat when you’re on the go because it folds up and packs super easily in your bag.

Latest self-care product you swear by?

I swear by these Victoria Beckham Beauty cream eyeshadow sticks. I love that they are waterproof and super pigmented. I always feel like my makeup is professionally done whenever I am wearing them.

Your latest go-to Megababe product?

We recently launched the Night Rescue Overnight Brightening Stick and I could not be more obsessed. I apply Night Rescue before I go to bed. It diminishes discoloration from previous chafing, soothes irritation and restores healthy skin, all while you sleep.

Do you have an unconventional or hacky way to use any specific Megababe products?

I like to pump Body Dust in my sneakers to keep my feet dry during the summer — there is nothing worse than sweaty feet. I also will apply Thigh Rescue on my legs if I am out and realize I forgot to put lotion on.

What three items do you always have in your bag?

I always stay strapped with my Megababe Thigh Rescue, Goopgenes Clean Nourishing Lip Balm and Clé de Peau concealer.

What’s on your nightstand?

Tammy Fender Intensive Repair Balm, Petite Plume’s Sleep Mask, and The Rose Oil from Tenoverten.

The best piece of business advice you’ve received?

Stick to your guns and follow your gut. If you know that you’re creating a real solution for a real problem, you can be the best advocate for yourself and your customers.

Your go-to travel hack?

I never forget to pack my AG1 from Athletic Greens. It’s a must when traveling.

Your current favorite book?

I am currently reading (and devouring) “Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers” by Jesse Q. Sutanto.

Psst: This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
