Between Dancing with the Stars, the release of her book Every Girls Guide to Life, hosting Extra, and acting as the face of Phillips Sonicare, Maria Menounos has been one busy lady. But lucky for us, she was able to take time out of her bustling schedule for a quick chat.

Real Beauty: What are you up to this summer?
Maria Menounos: Well obviously I host Extra everyday, I'm also shooting a docuseries for Oxygen based on my me and family. I have a flim out right now, Adventures of Serial Buddies, which you can download on iTunes. What else? I'm writing a new book, its kind of like Every Girls Guide to fitness but it doesn't have a title yet. I have a lot going on.

RB: What kind of fitness tips will we find in the book?
MM: The question people always ask me is 'how do I stay in shape without going to the gym?' And now that I've figured that out, you'll get to see it all in my book!

RB: What beauty products do you swear by?
MM: I love the Phillips Zoom Teeth Whitening Treatment—I went to the dentist’s office and in less than an hour my teeth were so white, and it lasts so long. I also have the Philips Sonicare toothbrush—my dentist recommended it to me years ago because of my receding gum lines and it completely turned that whole thing around. I'm very teeth crazy and super anal about them, and they have never been cleaner. Your smile is so important so I've always worked hard to make sure my teeth are nice, clean, shiny, and white. I know what a confidence booster it is to be able to smile big and bright.

RB: Apart from your smile, what other things are you focusing on in your beauty regimen?
MM: I’m definitely getting better at using lotion everywhere. I’ll use it on my neck and my chest, the backs of my hands and even my knees now. I'm realizing these are the places where age really shows the most and the quickest, so I’m lathering myself up. The other thing I’m doing for summer is I spray tan to make sure I already have a healthy glow before I go to a pool party or the beach—so I don't sit there baking in the sun and jeopardizing my skin.

RB: What is your favorite thing to lather up with?
MM: When I need something a little more hydrating, I use coconut oil. I get it in the super market, it's the stuff you cook with. It’s just natural and clean, and gives you a little sheen—so I love it.

RB: What is biggest your closet must-have?
MM: It's called the Backless Strapless Bra, and its the most amazing thing I've ever bought! Anything backless that you want to wear this summer, that’s the bra! It goes on the sides with a little agility and has a real bra in the front. No more sticky bras that are going to rip your nipples off. I actually don't wear regular bras anymore because even the straps are cumbersome now—this make you feel free, without feeling too free.
