5 Ways to Go From Drab to Fab in Under 2 Minutes

Like most women, sometimes you just don’t have enough time in the mornings to put on your full face of makeup before heading out the door.

5. Hide That Sudden Acne

Brushing your teeth and find yourself staring at a zit on your face? Never fear. Grab some of that toothpaste and cover the zit with it while you continue to brush. Toothpaste has some ingredients that hel
