Celeb-Approved BB Body Creams to Hide Leg Veins, More Skin Sins
Summer may be coming to a close, but leg-baring styles are certainly not going anywhere. While Taylor Swift's hot-pants romper may not be the standard, midi and knee-length hemlines will reign through fall.
If you're not into nude hosiery a la Kate Middleton, the beauty industry has recently introduced a new product category that helps hide leg imperfections like spider veins and scars without staining fabrics. Like BBs for your face, BB body creams deliver an array of benefits like hydration, firming and smoothing.
Here, check out these four celeb-approved products to take your legs (and arms and decolletage) from summer to fall.
Make like Nina Dobrev and Jamie Chung and boost your skin confidence with Urban Decay Naked Skin Body Beauty Balm. Light-diffusing spheres deliver your own Instagram filter-like effect, and high-performance ingredients fight wrinkles and work to tone up skin. ($32, Sephora.com)
Per-Fekt Body Perfection Gel glides on smoothly and dries to a powdery (but non-transferable) finish to camouflage bruises, self-tanner streaks and beyond. The moisturizing and smoothing product is available in four shades. ($48, Sephora.com)
Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream hides a plethora of skin sins with moisturizing shea butter, skin-smoothing emollients and its self-adjusting tone technology. The multi-tasking cream favored byJaime King comes in two shades — one for light tones and another for medium to deep. ($12.99, Ulta.com)
The aptly-named Votre Vu Silk Stockings gives the sheen of stockings without the added layer. Roman chamomile extract conditions skin while calendula delivers anti-oxidants, and the shimmered tint gives you a warm glow where it's applied — just take a look at Sarah Hyland at the Emmys 2014 (her makeup artist Allan Avendano used it on her).
