Yes, you can use BB cream every day on top of any moisturizer. It’s a great way to improve your health and makeup routine. BB cream, which stands for “beauty balm” or “blemish balm,” is a product that can be used for both skincare and makeup. Here’s why it’s a great idea and how to make it work:
Why can any lotion be used on top of BB cream?
Hydration: BB creams are made with moisturizing ingredients, but putting on a lotion first will make sure your skin stays hydrated all day.
Heat protection: Many BB creams have SPF, which means they protect you from the heat. But depending only on your BB cream’s SPF may not give you enough coverage. For full sun protection, it’s smart to use a different sunscreen and moisturizer with SPF before your BB cream.
Customization: Different moisturizers are good for different things, like keeping your face hydrated, preventing wrinkles, or getting rid of acne. By putting lotion on top of BB cream, you can customize your skin care routine to meet your specific needs.
How to apply BB cream over moisturizer:
Cleanse and tone: First, make sure your face is clean. To prepare your face, use a gentle cleanser and toner.
Moisturize: Use your regular moisturizer and let it sit on your face for a few minutes so it can soak in.
Sunscreen (if not in your moisturizer): If your moisturizer doesn’t have SPF, apply sunscreen now. Sunscreen is a must if you want to keep UV rays from hurting your skin.
How to Use BB Cream: Take a small amount of BB cream and put dots of it on your forehead, lips, nose, and chin.
Mix: Use your fingers, a beauty sponge, or a brush to mix the BB cream in a gentle way. Make sure to blend it in evenly, paying special attention to the sides of your face and neck to avoid a harsh line.
Set (optional): Lightly dust transparent setting powder over your BB cream if you have oily skin or want your makeup to last longer.
Makeup (optional): Keep doing your makeup as usual, such as putting on concealer, blush, and eyeliner, if you want to.
Finish: Use a setting spray to keep your look fresh and make it last longer.
By doing these things, you can use BB cream on top of any lotion to get a smooth, natural-looking face while still taking care of your skin’s needs. It’s a quick and easy way to save time and get a healthy-looking glow from your skincare and makeup routine. Have fun trying out different things to see what works best for you.
