It seems as though we’re FINALLY getting to a time in the year where the sun is at least attempting to show its face, which means that the temperature can only go up from here. Like a lot of women, we here at Pure Beauty aren’t huge fans of wearing a thick coating of foundation on our skins when it’s hot outside, so we thought we’d show you our five favourite products which help us to achieve a flawless look without heavy, thick coverage.
This tint, which comes in light, medium and dark shades for a range of skin tones, is a lightly pigmented product which provides the skin with a sheer wash of colour which evens skin tone, hydrates and offers sun protection all day long. It’s got a delicate feel which melts into the skin leaving you feeling confident without a heavy layer of cover on your face.
BB cream (blemish balm or beauty balm, in case you were wondering!) is all the rage these days and it’s easy to see why. Decleor’s BB offering combines five functions in one, providing 24 hours of moisture, evening the complexion and illuminating, improving the skins texture and improving blemishes, protecting against pollution and finally offering protection from the sun’s harmful rays. It’s a true Swiss Army Knife in a bottle!
Primer is often used as a ‘pre-foundation’ treatment, but this powerful product from Dermalogica is so good that it can be used all on it’s own. As well as offering intense moisture and mattifying effect, this primer provides a dramatic ‘blurring’ effect and natural tint suitable for any complexion which improves the appearance of your skin enough for you to not need a separate foundation over the top.
If you have skin which is highly sensitive, the last thing you want is to pile products on top and make it feel worse, but a certain level of coverage is also sometimes needed to even out your complexion. This tint from Dermalogica is intended for use on highly sensitized skin and contains earth minerals for a natural, non-irritating tint, as well as a broad spectrum SPF to protect against the suns harmful rays.
This moisturiser from Decleor is another multi-functional product which moisturises deeply and revives the skin, but it also contains Soft Focus Pigments which reflect light, leaving your face looking radiant. It contains Saro essential oil and plant oils rich in Omegas 3, 6 and 9 which boost your skins natural defences.
