Summer is here and with it comes more outdoor activities. That can also bring the potential for skin-damaging sun exposure. The risks go beyond the short term redness or discomfort of a sunburn.
Besides the higher risk of skin cancer and premature skin aging, the temporary glow you might get on your face can have other drawbacks. If your skin type tends toward breakouts, UV damage from the sun can make acne worse.
The smart choice is sun protection and a BB cream could be the perfect solution.
BB stands for beauty balm or blemish balm. The best BB creams cover the bases as a moisturizer, primer, sunscreen, concealer, and foundation.
While some powders and foundations can suck the moisture from our skin, BB creams help hydrate and moisturize your skin.
BB creams also help even skin tone and reduce the look of fine lines. They serve as a make-up primer but have a comfortable, lightweight feel compared to foundation.
Most BB creams also provide enough sun protection if you're going out.
Clearly, multitasking BBs deserve to be a stalwart in your summer essentials bag.
The best formulas contain beneficial, botanical ingredients to help improve your skin's health.
My personal favorite is Shaklee's YOUTH® Activating BB Cream.
