BB Cream With SPF: Lightweight Coverage with Maximum Protection

Augusta Falletta

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!
