Q: My skin is extremely oily and acne-prone. Won’t moisturizer just make my acne worse?

It provides your skin with important vitamins and antioxidants while protecting against free radical damage.

A: Philosophy Purity Made Simple is a hardworking multitasker that removes oil, dirt and makeup without the need for additional products. It’s a great choice if you’re looking for that deep-clean feeling without beads, granules or foam.

Q: I love chocolate and pizza. Can sugary or greasy foods cause my skin to break out?

A: There’s no scientific proof that diet increases oil production. However, many medical professionals believe that foods that contain hormones can cause changes in your skin. So if you think the culprit may be too much meat or milk or that candy bar you had for dessert, try eliminating certain foods from your diet for a week or so and see if you notice a change in your acne.

Q. I’m looking for shoes that will transition easily from bicycling to office life. Can you offer me a couple of suggestions?

A. The process of moving between an active commute and your professional work day can seem like a complicated one, particularly when it comes to footwear. But it doesn’t have to be! Because your ride to work is not likely to be a vigorous one, simply avoid open-toed shoes and opt for sassy ballerina flats or Mary Jane’s. Both options will protect your feet from injury and offer the sophistication required of office fashion.
