BB cream, primer, tinted moisture?
I have a combination typed skin with some acne. I really want my face smooth and looked healthy. Based on my research, BB cream is really helpful, but do I have to use primer before applying the cream? what about tinted moisture? I know that they can prevent my skin from dryness.

I too have combination skin and acne, so I use a tinted moisturizer for spring and fall, a heavier moisturizer with foundation for winter and a bb cream or powder(just for events I need more coverage for) for summer. Right now, I don't use a primer for bb cream but I actually have a couple of good samples so I might try one. A good bb cream is dr.jarts gold label(it has an spf of 45!) and a good tinted moisturizer is either Amorepacific(but it's a little pricy) or Nars(also has an spf over 30). Hope this helps
My skin is a little different than yours (runs toward dry and relatively clear), but I have really loved the Smashbox BB cream. I do put moisturizer on every day along with the BB cream, but if I were you I'd try one thing at a time to see what works for your skin. I wouldn't add the moisturizer until you're sure the BB cream alone isn't enough. You should go into a sephora and actually try them on and see if you can get a sample to take home, since they do tend to be a little expensive. Good luck.
