When it’s hot you’ve got to lighten up; that goes for skin care too. Here are our favorite lightweight skin care and summer-friendly BB cream makeup products.
BB Cream and Why Your Need It This Summer
Many people are confused when they first hear about BB cream. Is it a foundation? Is it a cover-up? Is it a moisturizer? The good news is that it can be used as all of those things. This versatile tool should always hold a place in your makeup bag.
BB Cream is short for “blemish balm” and that is just one of the things that differentiate it from foundation. It does work to moisturize your face while providing a sheer tint to camouflage any imperfections and even out your skin tone.
However, it also contains active ingredients which actually help to improve the appearance of your skin, including:
- Brightening agents
- Anti-redness ingredients
Depending upon the formulation of a particular product, it may also provide sun protection, as well. While some creams give great sun protection for everyday use, for those days when you plan to spend time in the sun, such as at the beach or park, it is better to also use regular sunscreen.
BB Cream Is Perfect To Smooth Skin
When you are looking for the perfect cream to smooth out your skin and give you a beautiful, radiant look, grab a tube of Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35 in Fair. It glides over your face, deftly concealing imperfections while giving you an even skin tone. Its moisturizing power works against dry skin to hydrate, while leaving your face feeling soft and countering fine lines.
This multi-benefit corrector is able to work its magic as an anti-aging prevention tool without the use of paraben, sulfates or phthalates. And its color is typical of Bobbi Brown makeup tones, giving just the right hue to make the BB cream look natural on your skin. This particular neutral shade is ideal for fair to medium skin.
Use A BB Cream When You Want Nourishing Coverage
If lightness in a skin product is your preference, but you still have some blemishes or imperfections that you want to cover up, reach for Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream. Its pore-minimizing, moisturizing formula helps conceal blemishes and fine lines while giving a beautiful glow to your face.
Sometimes, you buy something for the ingredients it uses. Other times, you are still concerned about picking great components, but choose a product for the things it does not contain. This Jane Iredale blemish balm cream is one of those products, since this BB formulation is free from:
- Chemical additives
- Artificial dyes
Absence of these ingredients also makes this an ideal cream for people who want to wear some makeup but suffer from skin conditions. If you have rosacea or acne, you can safely reap the nourishing benefits of this cream without worrying about exacerbating your condition.
What? BB Cream for Your Man?
Your guy watches you put makeup on each and every morning. While he may not have any interest in adding velvety mascara, shimmery highlighter or a peach lip gloss to his face, he is no doubt envious of the benefits that you get from using your blemish balm cream. Why not surprise him with a tube of Lab Series Skincare for Men SPF 35 BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum?
This product gives an effect so natural that most people are going to have no idea he has it on. But it offers the sun protection he needs to help prevent damaging UVA and UVB rays from aging his skin. It works wonders on an uneven skin tone, tackling redness to result in a more uniform canvas.
And here’s a little secret: even though the Lab Series was developed for men, many ladies like it so much that it has become a regular part of their daily skin care routine. This cream is definitely one of those products, with women appreciating the light coverage it offers.
