Q I hear cleans­ing oils re­move make-up best. But will they make me break out?

A. Pos­si­bly, if you’re acne-prone. In that case, limit oils to eye and lip make-up, then wash skin nor­mally. How­ever, you can try an emul­sion-to-oil cleanser that suits oily skin bet­ter, such as this one from Es­tée Lauder. SOURCE: RE­BECCA BAXT, MD, DER­MA­TOL­O­GIST IN NYC

Q Can I wear per­fume on an out­door date…or will bugs eat me alive?

A. Fra­grances may at­tract mos­qui­toes. But new ones spiked with es­sen­tial oils (this one con­tains gera­nium) re­pel bugs and smell sexy.

Q How can I pre­vent a sun­burned scalp on a beach hol­i­day?

A. Dust a pow­der sun­screen and wear a hat or scarf. Or go for a slicked-back, un­parted pony­tail, so hair cov­ers skin.

Q My foun­da­tion cakes in my laugh lines when I sweat. Got a fast fix?

A. Puff out your cheeks like a blow­fish, then run a cot­ton swab along the lines to re­move buildup.
