Can You REALLY?..
Experts give real answers to your top questions.

. . . whiten
It takes about two hours to remove surface
stains with pro-grade whitening strips. You'll
need to use them for a week, but expect a
noticeable difference with just one use, says
cosmetic dentist Dr. Marc Lowenberg.
• Use them at night It's best to apply whitening
strips a couple of hours before going to bed, after
you've stopped eating for the night.
• Make them fit For an even, uniform result,
carefully maneuver strips with your fingertips so
they bind well to the curves of your teeth and are
fully adhered to each tooth.
A nutrient-rich, antiagingeye
cream may only diminish their
appearance. Still, it can help prevent
new lines from forming, experts say.
• Look for the right ingredients
Retinol, antioxidants and peptides
help thicken and plump skin,
increase elasticity and stimulate
collagen restoration, says N.Y.C.
dermatologist Dr. Joshua Zeichner.
• Put it on gently Before applying
moisturizer each morning and night,
softly dab eye cream underneath the
eye and around the outer corners
with your ring finger.

• Wait one minute After applying your base coat, two thin
coats of color and a top coat, allow nails to air dry for at least
60 seconds before using quick-dry drops.
• Apply them correctly Angle nails downward and apply
one drop at the cuticle base, allowing it to spread evenly.
.repair damaged hair?
It depends on the degree of damage, says •
Phyto stylist Ron Williams. If it's minimal,
you can improve your hair's health with
at-home treatments. If you have severe split
ends, though, the only fix is a trim.
• Hydrate strands Because damaged hair often
means that hair is dry and weakened, switch to a
hydrating shampoo with ingredients like vitamin B5
and mango seed oil, says Williams.
• Deep-treat Apply a nourishing mask to toweldried hair weekly, says celeb stylist Antonio Prieto.
