During the summer, the heat and humidity are enough to make us swear off heavy foundation entirely. No one likes heavy makeup, especially when the temperatures are so high that it begins to melt off your face and clog pores, creating an even larger problem. The solution to lightweight coverage in the dead of summer? BB cream with SPF, which gives just the right amount of makeup with all of the benefits of sun protection. Below are our favorite BB creams with SPF so you can find the best match for your skin!
If you’ve ever used a clay-infused product on your face, you know how amazing it makes your skin feel. This BB tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 is formulated with Tarte’s famous Amazonian clay, so you know you’re getting quality coverage and a weightless feel.
