How BB cream changed my exercise life
The problem: I always use an SPF moisturizer when I run, but I am extremely self conscious about my skin. When I have to meet up with people after a run or get on the subway or stop into a store, I pray I don’t run into anyone I know. I keep my head down when speaking to anyone. I worry that my friends will say, behind my back, “Wow, Dori really has bad skin.”
The treatment: None. I’ve spent years at dermatologists trying different medications and combinations of medications. Not only did they not work, but because of my severely dry skin (unusual with chronic acne), all the medications made my skin unbearably dry and painful. Now, I just try to use products that don’t make it any worse.
The solution: Because I won’t work out with makeup on (it clogs pores and is gross to sweat off), I was at a loss for years – until now. I happen to work at a skincare company called Hydroxatone and we recently came out with the product that changed my exercise life: Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream.
Tell me more: Well, since you asked! BB cream (which stands for beauty balm, blemish balm and even beblesh balm – explanation here) is an all-in-one multitasking product. Depending on what brand you get, it can hydrate, conceal, protect from the sun’s harmful rays and brighten your skin. My company’s version also reduces the look of aging. And it does all of this in just one step, so you’re not using multiple products. That’s really important to me because I am lazy and forgetful. I wear the Anti-Aging BB Cream when I work out and I also wear it on regular days — it gives me a flawless complexion and I don’t need foundation with it!
You can’t be serious. Do you have proof? Why yes, I do! I happened to record a Before & After BB cream - Part 1 to show how the BB cream perfected my skin and this is Before & After BB cream – Part 2, to show how well the BB cream held up while running and sweating for 6.2 miles. The lighting’s not great, but my acne is much worse than it appears and I also have under eye circles and dry skin. The video was inspired by this photo I snapped of myself in an apartment building hallway after the last race I ran wearing the BB
I agree with her completely...I workout everyday sometimes well all the time 2x daily..BB cream has been a lifesaver because now I dont have to wear full makeup..I am guilty when I do go to the gym..I wear Garniers BB cream and I love it...My next review and buy will be Hydroxatones..I love their skin creams so I am sure I will love the BB cream! -Tiffany
