We answer a bunch of your burning beauty questions.
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.
