During the change of season everyone scurries around to adjust their lives accordingly - they switch from heavy jackets to light cotton dresses and boots for sandals. But as sweltering summer days approach, makeup enthusiasts such as ourselves instantly think about how our skin care routine should change. We love the idea of finally shedding the multiple layers of clothing but acne, burnt skin and sun spots are some of the problems that accompany this otherwise happy season. At My Beauty Matches our rule is that we never deal with a problem once it settles in but rather, choose to solve it at the root. Hence, here’s a list of summer beauty tips and best foundation products to keep your skin looking radiant and spot-free this season.

Olay Total Effects 7 In 1 BB Touch Of Foundation Spf15 £7.95

The reason this product deserves to be at the top of this list is because it contains only a touch of foundation, is a daily moisturiser and provides sun protection. This BB cream is designed to smooth away the appearance of wrinkles and uneven skin whilst providing a natural everyday coverage. When you’re picking up any makeup/skin care product for the summer season it is important to make sure it contains a minimal amount of sun protection so that even if you forget to reapply sunscreen every few hours, the SPF-based products have got you "covered".

Lancome’s Hydra Zen Bb Cream Anti-stress Moisturising Tinted Cream SPF15 £38.00

One of our favourite products by Lancome is this all-in-one moisturising tinted BB cream that smoothly melts into your skin like butter. Once you apply this product you notice how it has the power to instantly fade the signs of tiredness and conceal minor imperfections. Other than concealing embarrassing blemishes, Lancome’s tinted cream protects your skin from the sun and provides long-lasting hydration for up to twelve hours.

If you’re looking for the perfect CC cream to get you through summer sixteen then pick up Juice Beauty’s Stem Cellular Cc Spf 30 Deep Glow Cream £36.00. It is an organic multi-tasking face cream rich in antioxidants that combat harmful free radicals and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Its formula provides mineral tinted coverage and at the same time repairs skin damage. If that wasn't enough it provides you a powerful armour against UV rays and its super hydrating powers leave your skin tone and texture evened out.

This one deserves a moment in the spotlight as it contains natural jojoba extract that helps hide blemishes and evens out your skin tone without clogging pores - an important feat to achieve in the summer. It’s loaded with cucumber water, body wash sea buckthorn and rosehip that keeps skin feeling soft and comfortable. Plus a protection of SPF 10 that protects your skin from damaging sun rays makes it the ultimate package.
