Dosing and administration

When choosing an IV cream, you should take into account the shade, type, individual features of the skin.

  • BB creams are able to adjust to the shade of the face, but it is better to immediately choose a tone close to the natural. It is useful to use a probe, take light into account.
  • It is commonly believed that cosmetics of this type are universal. But cosmetologists advise to pay attention to the composition: dry skin to select creams with a predominance of moisturizing ingredients, greasy need a dull effect, and for normal, a standard or bleaching product will do.
  • It is proved that the skin of people living in different parts of the world is somewhat different. Therefore, American and Asian cosmetics can act differently than the European.

It is necessary to consider the possible reaction of the skin to other ingredients of the cream. To do this, you need to study the composition, and also buy cosmetics in safe places.

A feature also in how to use BB cream? It is applied to the face not as a habitual foundation, but rather as a foundation for make-up. And the powder is no longer needed, because most IV creams contain a matting component.
