Enviable Skin

Simplify for summer. Swap your basic cleanser for one that does double-duty. Products that contain exfoliating salicylic acid can unclog pores and help decrease oil production, says Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, consulting dermatologist for L'Oreal Paris.

Switch up your moisturizer. The best ones deliver a tint, sunscreen, antioxidants, and skin-calming ingredients, such as aloe, all in one tube, says Jeannette Graf, MD, an assistant professor of dermatology at NYU Medical Center in New York City.

Brighten up. Need a boost for drab skin? Try a homemade honey mask. "Honey is a natural healer and humectant, perfect for post-sun exposure," says Joyce Carboni, spa director for Skinsational Skin & Body Spa in San Diego. Strawberries are loaded with skin-brightening vitamin C -- blend five of them with three tablespoons honey until the consistency is super smooth. Apply to clean, dry skin; rinse after 5 to 10 minutes.

Get buff. Douse a wet washcloth with moisturizing body wash to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate all at once, suggests Ranella Hirsch, MD, a dermatologist in Cambridge, Massachusetts. (But replace the cloth after each use.)

Metallic nail polish actually DOES NOT adhere better than cream polishes...especially if your nails are at all oily.
