What are some healthy food options when grilling?—Torey, New York
I love to marinate portobello mushrooms in balsamic vinegar and throw them on the grill. It’s a quick, easy, and definitely tasty solution when trying to stay healthy during the summer season! For more great grilling tips and product picks, read Hot off the Grill!

How do you get a healthy tan?—Dianna, New York
For the perfect sun-kissed, bronze look, I love Sue Devitt’s Microquatic Tinted Body Moisturizer with orchid and aloe extracts and frangipani. You only need a small amount, and I like to mix it with my daily moisturizer for a fresh, sheer glow.
