Q: I love to wear natural polishes but hate how they tend to detail flaws in my nails. Do you have any tips on making my nails look smoother?

A: Just like a primer helps foundation go on smoother and last longer, a primer for the nails will do the same trick. After lightly smoothing nails with a nail buffer get a flawless polish every time with Deborah Lippmann Ridge Filler Base Coat, which contains silk fibers to help make nails smooth and even.

Q: Is there an easier way to take my polish off when I’m traveling?

A: Deborah Lippmann The Stripper To Go Lacquer Remover Mitts make taking of nail polish a breeze with a one-time use mitt. It’s easy to use on-the-go to get rid of chipped nails or to change colors instantly.

Q: How can I keep my toenail polish from staining my nails?

A: The best way to make sure your polish doesn’t stain nails is to use a good base coat that helps protect nails when wearing darker colors, especially reds. Deborah Lippmann Turn Back Time Base Coat will give nails an instant luminosity and protects from yellowing.

Q: I hate wearing makeup and moisturizer in the summer. But, I’m starting to notice sun damage on my cheeks. How can I cover them up in a way that won’t feel like makeup?

A: The key to covering up imperfections in the hottest months is primer, but make sure you choose a lightweight, oil-free formula like Stila One Step Correct Skin-Tone Correcting, Brightening Serum. Then, apply a silicone-based foundation like Vincent Longo Water Canvas Crème-To-Powder Foundation, which won’t melt or clog your pores. Another option is BB Cream like Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream, which offers lightweight SPF protection and coverage.

Q. I’ve heard that UV rays can wreak havoc on hair. Is this true? If so, what precautions can I take to protect my strands?

A. While most women know to protect their skin against the effects of the sun’s harsh rays, delicate strands are all too often neglected. It’s important to know that “UVA and UVB rays have the power to damage the hair from the cuticle to the inner structure of the hair,” Roger Medina, styling pro for TRESemmé, tells Elle Canada. He goes on to explain that “the cuticle contains a web of tiny overlapping scales. When the scales are damaged they cannot lay flat and will look lifeless, brittle and dry.” To avoid the look of ravaged hair, turn to Alterna UV+ Color Protection On-The-Go Travel Kit. Whether you’re at home or plan to travel for our nation’s birthday, this four-piece set is packed full of everything you’ll need to protect your hair from the sun.
