Q Is it a waste of money to get a gel pedi­cure? A. Not if you’re go­ing to the beach. Sand and salt­wa­ter strip shine and cause reg­u­lar pol­ish to chip. (Try the Bour­jois Paris one, above. It prom­ises to dry in one sec­ond!) Q Is it san­i­tary to use bar soap? A. Yes, if it’s stored on a wire rack (not a shelf or dish), which keeps it dry and bac­te­ria-free. How­ever, keep away from us­ing it on your face. Q Why do I con­stantly get a pim­ple in the same spot? A. Blame left­over bac­te­ria (pop­ping a zit pushes it deep into pores). Ap­ply anti--bac­te­rial ben­zoyl per­ox­ide twice daily for a week.
