hi, im a guy with with bad skin tone, some redness and a mix of dry and oily skin, iv recently purchased MMUK BB Cream to even out my skin tone.

The problem is it doesn't blend into my skin and instead slides about on the surface.
for skin preparation iv tried a few different things like: 
-no moisturiser
-moisturiser & MMUK Skin primer
-no moisturiser & MMUK Skin primer 
iv tried applying with fingers, brush and sponge with the same results, although best result with sponge
i have attached a photo of what happens after iv applied the BB cream, as you can see it stays on the surface and doesn't blend in to the skin at all
Has anyone any suggestions of what the problem could be?
thank you in advanced :) for the help

Hi! Do you exfoliate your skin? Many times a foundation or BB cream will separate or cling to the skin just like in the picture if you don't exfoliate the skin regularly 1-2 times per week. You can find exfoliators at Target, Sephora, Ulta etc. Pixi has a great exfoliating product called Peel & Polish and it's one of my favorites. It's available at Target. It could also be that your moisturizer has silicone whereas the BB cream doesn't or visa versa. Have you tried a different moisturizer or adding a drop of skin oil on your skin before adding the BB cream? Sometimes if your skin is too dry the separation can occur. If you are using an oil free moisturizer, they many times have silicones in it causing an issue with the BB cream. I personally use BB creams most days in place of a foundation and I always put a skin oil and moisturizer prior to applying the BB cream to help with blendability. Try adding a drop of skin oil on your skin after washing, then your moisturizer and then the BB cream. You can get skin oils from Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Ulta, Target, Sephora etc. Some of my favorite brands are PIXI and dermae for their skin oils.

    • It is no secret that hair can often change with age. It does not always depend even on a haircut. However, have you tried to start care with natural oil again? If this doesn't help, I can only recommend using a hair straightener - https://womenmotorist.com/best-steam-hair-straightener/  I do this periodically when I want to see myself with a smooth haircut. This doesn't harm the hair if the procedure is performed no more often than a couple of times a week. You can try to understand how it will look in your case.
    • Moisturizer is also the best gift for someone.  The best moisturizer helps to get rid of skin related ailments and dry skin problem. So, I advise to chose the best moisturizer from the available brands in the market.
