Whether you're a new product junkie or like to keep your skincare simple, TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com's Bobbie Thomas offers up a few new favorites for flawless skin.

Streamline your skincare

Just like your mind and body, your skin can benefit from a healthy, regulated routine. For those who don't already have a favorite regimen, consider making friends with "BB" creams.  A trend that originated in Asia, "Beauty Balms" are a one-stop shop, bottling up moisture, SPF, light coverage and a fresh dewy glow, all in one tube. A quick swipe of Dr. Jart's Water Fuse Balm and I was hooked — you can actually see molecules of moisture get absorbed into your skin so you know the product is doing its job ($28; sephora.com). Boscia's oil-free, multitasking BB Cream is another top pick, perfect for letting your skin breathe on hot days without having to slather on layers of makeup ($38; bosciaskincare.com).

Conceal like a pro

If you suffer from the occasional unwelcome pimple, dark circle or discoloration, have no fear! Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage is an industry favorite for banishing blemishes. Lightweight and compact, the dual-tone concealer allows you to blend the perfect shade at home or on the go ($28; lauramercier.com). Stila's #33 One Step Complexion Brush is also a trusty way to cover up. One end of the wand mimics the touch of your fingertips (minus the dirt and bacteria that may be hiding there!) while the other end allows for precise application in hard-to-reach places like around the eyes and nose ($32; stilacosmetics.com).

Go for glow

Last but not least, MAC’s new Magically Cool Liquid Powder is the latest must-have on the makeup market. Available in chic and shimmery shades like Honey Rose and Truth and Light, these allover glows go on like liquid but quickly transition to a soft, powdery finish. They're ideal for the sweaty summer months ahead and give you a touch of color without excess shine or flakiness ($29.50; maccosmetics.com)
