Your Guide to Sexy Summer Skin

Heavy Creams
"Acne flares up in summer," says Doris J. Day, a Manhattan-based dermatologist, "and rich creams exacerbate the problem." Stick to a light, almost watery moisturizer or serum — except when you travel. Airplane air is a major dehydrator, so it's okay to use a light cream while traveling.
MC Recommends: Darphin Arovita C Line Response Cream

Laser Hair Removal
Lasers are ineffective if you're tan, since they can't target hair that's close in tone to your skin. Dig out that razor.

Skin-Lightening Treatments
Save bleaching treatments for pigment discolorations for fall, as even small doses of strong sun will counteract (pricey) lightening creams and laser sessions.
