The sunny season calls for a few beauty tweaks.
By the Beauty Beat Team | March 13, 2020
With temps on the rise, the last thing you want to do is to suffocate your skin by piling on lots of makeup. Heavy formulas will only melt in this heat, leaving you looking like a greasy, splotchy mess. It’s clear: The summer season calls for swapping your beauty staples for lighter, more budge-proof alternatives.
Don’t fret, though; you don’t exactly need a major beauty kit overhaul. You can simply stow away some of your regulars for a couple of months in favor of a more summer-friendly lineup.
Ready to make the switch? Check out our top six beauty swaps here:
Swap #1: BB Cream instead of foundation
Foundation fan? We feel you. The beauty staple, after all, is considered the go-to scoring a flawless complexion. But when temps are rising, you’ll want to trade your heavy-duty base for a lighter formula—something that won’t melt in the heat or cake as you sweat. Enter the K-beauty fave BB Cream, which gives you similar benefits albeit with slightly less coverage. On the upside, it’s packed with extra skin care benefits (hydration included) and is usually already infused with SPF.
Similarly, CC Creams and tinted moisturizers make great summer-friendly alternatives, too.
