Can you use a dark spot corrector with a BB cream? Can you use BareMinerals powder over a BB cream?

I'm 42 and have some sun damage and acne scars on my face (hate it). Would a dark spot corrector or BB cream be better for me? Or can you use both types of products together? Also, with a BB cream, does it work OK with BareMInerals powder or the Sephora minerals compact ... or would it be better with some other sort of additioanl coverage? I'm so confused!

Some dark spot correctors are treatment products with ingredients that doesn't interact well with sunlight, in which case they should explicitly say use in the PM in the instruction. If it doesn't say that, says "use AM and PM" or just "under product X", then it is totally fine to use under BB cream.

 

And yes, you can wear powder over cream, altho I'm not familiar with their coverage or how much coverage you are looking for.

Hi JulienKC-

 

You can use a dark spot corrector over a BB cream. I suggest using both a serum, moisturizer and a BB cream. You should also make sure that you are wearing an SPF daily to prevent your dark spots from becoming darker! I recommend the following options.

 

Murad Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel

Use the Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral Powder SPF 45. It's perfect for touch ups and as a finishing powder.
