3 BB Cream Hacks

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Although this isn’t strictly a made-from-scratch BB cream, it’s a a good idea in that you can put together some products that you likely already have. A BB or CC cream is ostensibly a moisturizer, sunscreen, treatment and coverage all in one cream. The problem is that you can’t always find the exact shade or consistency that you like, so here are ideas for 3 BB Cream Hacks:

You add about 1 dime sized dollop of moisturizer, 1 dime sized dollop of foundation, 1/2 dropper of serum, and 1/8 tsp non-nano zinc oxide.

1. For Oily Skin: Juice Beauty Oil-free moisturizer + Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup + Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum + non-nano zinc oxide

2. For dry/Mature skin: Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Beautiful Day Cream + Vapour Soft Focus Foundation + Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum + non-nano zinc oxide

3 For Sensitive skin: CV Skin Labs Calming Moisture for Face, Neck & Scalp + Pure Ceuticals Ferulic C serum + non-nano zinc oxide

The thing that I most love about being able to create my own BB cream is that I can customize the shade to suit the season – I love to bump up the color in the summer by adding a drop of my favorite liquid bronzer by Dr. Hauschka.
