Readers Ask: Dear Lucky About Grooming Etiquette

Q: If someone has spinach in her teeth, a piece of lint on her shirt or toilet paper on her shoe, am I supposed to say something? Sometimes I just let it go because I don’t want to make the person feel self-conscious. A: The true friend—or, better, the true kind person—always, always says something.

Readers Ask: Dear Lucky About Keeping Hair Damage to A Minimum

Q: I have a pretty intense physical fitness routine (outdoor running, yoga, strength training, etc.), which means a lot of sweat, exposure to the sun and tugging on my hair to get it back into a secure ponytail. Any recommendations for keeping hair damage to a minimum? And preventing that flat-and-limp, sweated-on look? A: You kind of have to embrace the sweated-on flatness and limpness.

Readers Ask: Dear Lucky About Anti-Aging Products

Q: So, I just turned 25 and still have no wrinkles (phew!), but I want to do the best thing for my face to prevent aging. I already wear SPF every day, but I never know what kind of face creams to buy specifically for antiaging. Should I be wearing anti-wrinkle cream, or will wearing it too soon make my skin immune to it in the future? A: If you have no acne and no wrinkles, I say live it up and enjoy your moment of perfection!
