BB Cream to Keep You Summer Fresh
The verdict is out, and BB and CC creams are currently all of the rage and growing more popular in the world of beauty than ever before. These lightweight creams are the perfect option if you are going for a radiant, fresh look this summer. A BB cream, also known as a “beauty balm,” is a tinted moisturizer that provides anti-aging components, such as peptides and antioxidants, SPF protection from the sun, blemish control and moisture all in one product. A CC cream is much the same, containing color-correcting additives to aid with hyperpigmentation and dark spot treatment. BB and CC creams can replace foundations and moisturizers, depending on your personal needs.
With the booming popularity of these creams, almost every beauty and cosmetic company offers some type of BB or CC cream in its collection. Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream and Garnier’s Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream are both popular and affordable drugstore brands. A few brands highly recommended by beauty experts are Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream and Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, which can be found at your local Sephora or Ulta. Prism by Chrysalis Cosmetics offers an age defense BB Cream that hydrates and protects, helps prevent premature aging and darkening, and adds a sheer healthy glow to the skin. These BB creams are the perfect go-to for the natural, “no make-up” make-up look.
Summer is quickly approaching, and it’s the perfect season for a radiant summer glow. Enjoy the sun, and don’t just soak up the summer rays—find the perfect BB or CC cream best suited for your skin, and be the rays!
