Skin Care Routine: Morning Moisturizers & BB Creams

Welcome to Part 3 of my Skin Care Routine!

As you may recall from part 2, I don't use serums in the morning, but I make up for it by always using a moisturizer or bb cream.

My go-to moisturizer is Philosophy Clear Days Ahead. This moisturizer is oil-free, contains salicylic acid, and mattifys my face. This is perfect to use under any foundation, especially my holy grail: BareMinerals BareSkin Brightening Serum Foundation. For heavier foundations I mix Philosophy with a Smashbox primer (like the pictured Blemish Control primer).

On days that I don't have time or the need to apply foundation, I go to a bb cream. My favorites are:

  • Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream: Offers a great amount of sun protection for summer-time wear. I love how nicely the formula blends into my skin.
  • BRTC Blemish Recover Balm: I love this bb cream for face-demon days. It smells like witch hazel and tea tree oil, controls oil like nobody's business, and magically helps clear up my face while wearing it. 
  • Urban Decay Naked Skin bb cream: Offers no coverage, but uses light to blur imperfections on your face. I love this stuff for everyday, but it's my go-to on blemish-free days when I just need to tone down redness and acne scarring.
From here goes the rest of my makeup, or just the rest of my day until my night-time skin care routine begins (stay tuned for part 4).
