More on Makeup

One of our readers asked this question, and here's our answer:

Q: Hi - what about lip balm and mascara? I'm not terribly concerned about the mascara, but I have a pretty serious addiction to chapstick...Any ideas for alternatives?

A: Mascara is allowed. Be sure to use a water-based formula that doesn't require oil-based makeup remover. Basically, just steer clear of "waterproof". Same goes for eyeliner.

Chapstick can be tricky. Unlike oils, wax based chapsticks can't be absorbed by the skin, so stick with those. Lipsticks are wax-based so they are a great alternative (and they give some color).

Hope this helps!
