The October heat can be rather merciless. This is when you want to look flawless without having to apply coatings of makeup and heavy skin care products. Because let’s face it—sweaty skin couple with thick moisturisers and foundations will only weigh your face down. Like that’s not enough, thick beauty products are also quite the easy route to acne and breakouts. So if you wish to go easy on your makeup and skin care routine, here’s what you need to add to your beauty kit to deal with the October heat…

Are you using a BB cream?

On most days when we’re too lazy to opt for a heavy coverage foundation, we reach out for the BB cream. And when the weather is being rather unkind to our skin, we need something that covers imperfections and feels absolutely light on the skin. If you want a regime like ours, we suggest using the Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Cream as your go-to product for this kind of weather. It will lend your skin SPF 30 PA++ (you know you need this now more than ever), conceal your spots and moisturise your skin thoroughly. Quite the multipurpose product, isn’t it?
