I wear makeup daily and am skeptical about changing my normal foundation routine. Living in Arizona it is almost impossible to stay out of the sun and heat during the summer. Walking inside the grocery store from the parking lot sometimes feels like enough sun exposure to damage my skin with out sun protection. This summer has been exceptionally hot and I welcomed a new moisturizing makeup with protection against UV damage. The Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream has left my skin feeling refreshed, hydrated, and protected this summer.
The tinted moisturizer is lighter and does not offer the same coverage as my daily foundation but for summer it has been perfect. I have been wearing it daily to teach in my classroom, run errands, and for weekend family fun. Although the moisturizer has just a tint of color, my skin looks refreshed and feels softer. The cream hydrates for 24 hours and protects your skin against UV damage with 15 SPF.
I apply the moisturizer just after washing my face in the morning and typically reapply it again later in the day if I plan to be outside. The cream goes on smoothly and requires no effort to get an even skin tone.
Regardless of the occasion, my new makeup routine begins with Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream. The moisturizing cream is also a great base if I am planning to use heavier foundation for more coverage . My new daily routine in the hot Arizona summer takes less than five minutes to complete. BB Cream, mascara, an eyebrow pencil, and lip gloss are all I need to get me out the door.
Do you use a daily moisturizer in your morning makeup routine?
