Ask a derm…

Q: What’s the best way to tone down self-tanner streaks without aggravating my sensitive skin?

A: “Take a bath, and use a body scrub to exfoliate the darkened skin cells,” says Dr. Lisa Kellett of DLK on Avenue ( “A scrub with large particles is best, but if you have sensitive skin, use any exfoliant that doesn’t irritate you. After your bath, go for a moisturizer that contains alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy acid to further slough the skin. Follow this routine twice a day for about two weeks. Professional crystal or diamond micro-dermabrasion treatments can also do the trick.”
