Ed. Obsession Under $30: BB creams

As a firm believer in my right to bare arms—and rock flouncy skirts and backless dresses—I’ve been combating my super fair and hyper-sensitive skin ever since my very first dance. My trick in high school? Mix a glob of cheap liquid concealer into my regular body lotion, then slather it on legs and arms to even out my ruddy skintone.
 

Imagine my delight when—finally, at age 25—BB creams made their way from development in Europe and stardom in Asia to finally reach American makeup counters. Known as beauty balms, blemish balms or beauty benefit creams, these multitaskers work major magic on your skin by combining nutrients and vitamins with light-reflecting coverage—so not only do they make your skin look perf when applied, but the long-term effects lead to healthier, better-looking skin. Um, where have these been all my life?!
 

BBs are popping up from top brands everywhere, but right now I’m hooked on Bodyography’s Mineral Body Gloss. It contains vitamins A, C and E for your skin’s daily dose of nutrients, plus anti-aging properties to help maintain health. I was a little hesitant when I first saw the shimmery bronze gel, but it went on super smooth and looked completely sheer and natural as I rubbed it in, making my skin bright, even and moisturized with just enough coverage.

 
I’m officially looking forward to summer dress and shorts season.

Does lotion have you feeling sticky in this hot weather? Skip it and try using a moisturizing body wash when you shower to keep your skin silky smooth without the icky sticky feeling.
