Best tinted moisturisers and how to use them

Now you're a new mum, you have no time to waste in the mornings.  All you need are fast and reliable solutions to make your morning routine a little bit less stressful. 

If you are having trouble fitting your skincare and make-up routines into your new schedule, you can get a tinted moisturiser, which will be the perfect solution.   

Tinted moisturisers are very similar to BB creams and will give you a fresh look when you’re in a hurry with lightweight coverage. You can even apply them with just your fingers on the go. 

The main difference between them is that a tinted moisturiser is lighter than a BB cream because it works as a moisturiser with a little bit of colour; it will hydrate your skin while adding a hint of colour. Also, a BB cream can have many other actions, treating the skin for specific issues: aging, blemishes, dryness or oiliness, just to name some. 

Some of the best tinted moisturisers have a formula with added SPF, so you are protected from the sun for the entire day. They are perfect for the summer and hot days.
