We answer a bunch of your burning beauty questions.
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.
