Skip the conditioner?

Myth: Skipping conditioner will weigh hair down.

Truth: Partially true—if you use a heavy conditioner all over. It's good to use a conditioning treatment periodically, but for daily use, apply conditioner only to hair's ends.

Tip: Spray the roots with a volumizer before blowdrying to counteract any weight from the conditioner. We like Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray.

Use Sunblock!

Always use sunblock! You hear it over and over from just about everyone, so why aren't you listening? It's important to prevent against UV damage, even in the winter. A tinted moisturizer like Neutrogena's Healthy Defense is a quick way to get protection and even out your skin in one step.

Foundation tip

If you decide to go with a foundation, always apply with your fingertips. The warmth of your hand helps to blend more evenly. But be sure to wash your hands first—you don't want to clog your pores with dirt and oil!

We love Laura Mercier's Oil-Free Foundation.

Should I use a Toner?

Myth: Toner will make your skin dry and flaky.

Truth: Toner is an important part of a regular regimen, necessary to remove dirt and oil from your pores and keep your skin clean and clear. Just remember, don't over do it and follow with a moisturizer that's right for your skin type.
