BB Creams are tinted moisturisers with active ingredients as well as SPF. "They are designed for women who are 'on-the-go' with little time and want a multi-tasking product that will provide some benefits as well as light coverage (rather than make-up)," says dermatologist Dr Jeanette Graf.

Depending on the BB Cream you use, the product can work as a moisturiser, serum, toner, primer, concealer, foundation, eye cream and/or highlighter. Not only are they time-savers, but they're money-savers too.

As BB Creams continue to hit shelves at a rapid pace, here shorten your search by rounding up a few must-have products.

 working in sun, then may apply sun block after every two hours.

1. Share a meal with a friend.
This a great secret weight loss tip that works when both dining out or having lunch at work. In fact, one great way to lose weight and save money is to take turns once or twice a week fixing a healthy lunch and then splitting it at the office. You’ll save half the calories while enjoying each other’s favorite foods. When dining out at a restaurant, one of you can order a salad or soup while the other orders an appetizer or sandwich. Then simply ask for two plates and save both calories and money.

2. Think about your puppy.
Even if you don’t have one – a “doggie bag” that gets filled before a meal is a great secret weight loss tip. When you go out to lunch or dinner, simply ask your wait person to pack up half of your order to-go before serving it. This takes the temptation literally right off your plate, and can also help you if you are suffering from the “clean plate” syndrome. It stops you from mindlessly finishing an entire entrée while chatting away with your guy or friends. 

3. Lunch like a bunny.
For two weeks, have only a green salad for lunch. Fill that salad bowl with as much green as you like – romaine, lettuce, celery, spinach, and throw in some color as well – carrots, purple onions, and some radishes. This secret weight loss tip can be sabotaged by the toppings you choose, so stay away from blue cheese and other fat-laden dressings, and don’t top off your greens with cheese, pasta salad, or anything similarly fattening

4. Start with the starter menu.
Ordering from the appetizer selections rather than the entrees is a super secret weight loss tip that will start you off right in the New Year. There are plenty of low-calorie appetizers out there that will taste great and fill you up at half the calories. Think about shrimp cocktail, steamed mussels, a small tasty salad or other great appetizer. Skip anything fried or loaded with fattening foods such as bacon or lots of butter!

5. Fill up with fiber.
Not only are whole grain foods and other fiber-rich choices better for you, they also function as a great secret weight loss tool. Foods with fiber can take longer to eat, fill you up, and keep you from getting hungry later on. Unlike processed foods, your body will take its time to digest anything rich in fiber, giving you health benefits as well as weight loss benefits to boot.

1. Brush and floss teeth thoroughly.
2. Rinse mouth with water or mouthwash.
3. Remove an "upper" strip and a "lower" strip. The strip labeled "upper" goes onto the top teeth. The one labeled "lower" should be placed on the bottom teeth. Be sure that the tacky side of the strip is firmly adhered to the teeth and that the fronts of the teeth are completely covered by the strips.
4. Let the strips sit on the teeth for 30 minutes. It is recommended that the procedure be performed twice per day, once in the morning and again at night.
5. Remove the strips and dispose of into the garbage.
6. Rinse teeth with water or mouthwash. For the whitest smile it is recommended that you rinse with a mouthwash that contains peroxide, the whitening agent used in the bleach strips. Different manufacturers and brands have varying times that will pass before results are seen. In general results will be seen within three to five days.

At night before going bed, apply mustard oil, or almond oil, or olive oil into your navel cavity.
your lips will remain soften for ever.

1.  Don't be afraid to get WILD- try adding more than just ONE bright color, especially for spring!!

2.  Jump outside the boX, and try experimenting with some individual false lashes, as oppose to a strip lash for a more natural feathery look. **Don't forget to trim the lashes as you go toward the tear duct, this gives an even more natural look.

3. ALWAYS line your lips with a half shade darker than the color you fill your lips in with to give a more pronounced full shape.

4. Although foundation can be a girls best friend, it does nothing for you without setting powder.  Try out some translucent setting powders such as HD powder from Make Up For Ever to get a photo-ready look!

5. This spring be trendy and go with the trends! Try using more blush and less bronzer. Bronzer has always been a staple in makeup, while this spring its all about bright colorful faces, so try painting your face with bright in mind ;). Thanks for the tips Joyce!!
