Around this time of year many of us start going through our closets picking out what to put away until the next winter, what to give away, and what to buy and put front-and-center. But I’m not just talking clothes, I’m also talking make-up and any beauty products you may need. Certain beauty products you should keep a bit longer and others, like moisturizers or foundation, you should change to go along with the seasons. This is because your skin also changes during different times of the year. You may be prone to dry skin during the winter, and oily skin during he summer, as most of us are.
One beauty product you should definitely add to your collection is the latest craze, BB Cream. This blemish balm has been popular for a few decades but we are just recently hearing about it on this side of the world. Although the balm is mostly used to cover blemishes and sun spots, women love it because of how light and airy it is. No cake on this face!
BB Cream gives you a more natural, fresh look and it also works to moisturize your skin. It’s the perfect combination, giving you the hydration and SPF protection that your face needs. Depending on the type of skin that you have you can use BB Creams in different ways. For normal skin and for a lighter feel, you can just put on your BB Cream and won’t need anything else over it. For oily/combination skin, put on some powder over the cream to let it settle and control the shine. For dry skin, you can mix the cream with moisturizer to give you more of a dewy look.
This cream will be beneficial in the summer, for those hot, humid days in the DC area when you still want coverage but don’t want it to run down your face! Another great thing is that a lot of companies that sell the BB Cream so you will find it in your shade for the right price range for you.
Here are a few of our top picks:
