Professional ballroom dancers know a thing or two about sweat. It's basically a requirement for an award-winning performance.

Just ask Cheryl Burke, who helped The Body Shop launch their new DeoDry Dry-Effect Deodorant at New York's Tompkins Square Park, where the two-time Dancing with the Stars winner partook in the roller derby festivities.

On a day when sweltering temperatures had the city wilting under the heavy heat, Burke shared some summer-perfect beauty advice.

"Be smart about your exposure to the sun. Don't get caught up in using a tanning bed to keep that summer glow. Use self-tanner or indulge in a spray tan, as it is much safer than sitting in the sun or tanning bed," Burke tells StyleList.

We're sure a swipe of the new deodorant wouldn't hurt either. The stick claims 24-hour odor protection, and uses volcanic minerals and essential oils instead of controversial parabens and aluminum. Community trade aloe vera from Guatemala adds hydration for sensitive skins, while community trade alcohol derived from sugar cane fields of Ecuador whisks away moisture.

The cooling stick comes in a variety of scents and forms, that include a traditional stick, roll-on and even an environmentally-friendly refill-only option that also saves you some spare change.

But Burke is no new fan of the The Body Shop, as the exotic brunette of Filipino, Russian and Irish descent already has a brand favorite.

"I really like their Nutriganics Smoothing Night Cream. It is light but keeps your skin moisturized and doesn't feel heavy at all," says Burke.

Now that sounds like a perfect summer skin saver. For ideas on other melt-proof beauty buys, check out our gallery of summer's best waterproof makeup launches.
