10 BB Creams for Combination Skin That Are Winning!

October 13th, 2021 | by

Choosing BB creams can be an ordeal for those with combination skin. How do you find the perfect product that doesn’t make the dry parts look flaky but also mattifies the oily areas? You don’t, because we do for you. Picking makeup products for t-zone skin type wouldn’t be this hard anymore. We’ve got you “covered,” (pun intended)!

If you’re someone who doesn’t like wearing foundation but still wants decent coverage, BB cream is right up your alley! Blemish Balm (BB) creams are usually packed with moisturizing, protecting as well colour correcting benefits.  They shouldn’t be mistaken for CC (Colour correcting) creams that are primarily designed to reduce dark spots and hyperpigmentation on your face. BB creams are ideal for summers as they decrease your dependency on multiple products such as moisturizers, foundations and sunscreens for skin and makeup prep. They help your skin breathe and add a natural finish and glow to it. 

If you have combination skin and are struggling to pick the right BB cream, don’t worry, as we’re here to help you out with our best picks! Before we get to the list of BB creams, here are some ingredients and formulas you should look for when purchasing them. 

  • Lightweight: Some BB creams can be slightly heavy and feel like foundations. Avoid picking creams having too thick a consistency and a greasy, oily formula. Go for something that feels lightweight. 
  • SPF: If you’re someone who prefers wearing only BB cream and no other skincare/makeup, it’s very important for the product to have protective qualities, i.e, SPF, which shields your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. 
  • Hyaluronic acid: This ingredient will help moisturize your skin without clogging your pores. 
  • Salicylic acid: This is especially for those who struggle with breakouts. Salicylic acid gently exfoliates the skin by clearing out dead cells, blackheads and unclogging the pores, ensuring that the moisture barrier remains intact. 
  • Antioxidants: Vitamin E, niacin, etc. are great for skin brightening effects. So, if you’re looking for a BB cream with this feature, ensure you pick a product with any of these antioxidants.
