Q How can I pre­vent a PMS break­out?

A. The nat­u­ral spike in testos­terone in­creases oil pro­duc­tion. Have a pill to bal­ance your hor­mones. Ex­tra ex­fo­li­a­tion will pre­vent blocked pores.

Q What’s the deal with those overnight face masks? Are they dif­fer­ent from night creams?

A. They’re more oc­clu­sive—mean­ing they lock in the mois­tur­is­ing in­gre­di­ents, so they don’t evap­o­rate—and are a great weekly treat­ment.

Q I don’t use con­di­tioner be­cause it makes my thin hair limp and greasy. But I’m freaked that my hair is go­ing to get dam­aged. Sug­ges­tions?

A. Try a hair CC Cream. The leave-in treat­ment hy­drates, flat­tens fly­aways, and pro­tects against heat with­out any weigh-down.

Q What should I ap­ply first: foun­da­tion or con­cealer?

A. Foun­da­tion. Then cover any vis­i­ble im­per­fec­tions with con­cealer, and set it all with pow­der. Q By mid-day, my face is so shiny that I have to re­wash it. Any tips?

A. Lather with a char­coal-based cleanser for three min­utes; the in­gre­di­ent is a po­tent oil ab­sorber. Also key: blot­ting pa­pers.
