Q: I’m looking for a natural remedy for some mild age spots on my face. Any suggestions?

A: Top dermatologist Dr. Kate Somerville tells In Style that fresh strawberries are a great go-to remedy for sun spots. Simply cut a berry in half and gently poke the flesh with a fork to expose the juices. Then, wipe the slices across the face in a circular pattern. Let the juice sit on the skin for a few minutes, then rinse. Repeat every few days, and over time, sun spots will diminish.

Q: Are spray-on sunscreens just as effective as lotions?

A: According to the New York Times, the jury is still out as to whether or not spray-on sunscreens are as effective as rub-on lotions. Until the FDA provides further research, many experts recommend avoiding the use of spray sunscreens on kids and, for adults, to avoid spraying directly on the face. Instead, spray the sunscreen into your hands and apply directly, avoiding the eyes and mouth.

Q: I use my SPF religiously during the summer months, but is there anything else I can do to help my skin resist sun damage?

A: Pack your beauty regimen with products that contain antioxidants, which make skin more resilient, and DNA repair enzymes, which actually repair damage at the cellular level to reverse the signs of aging. A serum, like Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare Catalyst AC - 11 DNA Repair Serum, is the most effective way to reap the benefits of these powerful age-fighting ingredients.

Q. I’m extremely fair-skinned but dream of having a bronzed glow. Is there a sun-free way to achieve this look?

A. You can easily get the look of a tan without damaging your skin by making use of sunless tanning products. For a velvety smooth, natural-looking glow, reach for St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse. For a sun-kissed radiance on your face, swap your blush for a bronzer with pink or peach undertones, such as Nars Bronzing, Irresistiblement.

Q: I’m in my friend’s outdoor wedding party, and I don’t want to battle my usual greasy forehead and nose. How can I manage the oil without piling on makeup?

A: Tuck Jane Iredale Face Blotting Papers into your purse. These handy oil-absorbing sheets come in an elegant gold metal case, so you can banish shine without compromising style and class. Plus, with these blotting papers you can tidy up your makeup if it gets runny without the help of a mirror.
