BB cream has become a very common addition to the makeup world. Many wonder what
BB cream stands for, what it is, why we use them and the different kinds that are available. BB cream stands for “blemish balm” or “beauty balm” cream. It includes many different skin care products in an all-in-one product. The original BB cream was made in Germany inthe 1960s by a dermatologist to protect patient’s skin after facial peels and surgeries. Then the Korean cosmetic companies developed the BB cream further to make it a product that has all the necessary creams needed for the skin.
BB cream usually comes with serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock. Once it is applied, either by itself or under foundation, it settles onto the skin as a sheer silky layer of creamy tint. You can wear BB cream alone to get that fresh-face and radiant skin or you can use it as a base under a foundation for a more full coverage look. BB creams all in one product has revolutionized makeup by containing the key ingredients one needs for their skin. Having a moisturizer allows the skin to have an elastic feel and appearance. SPF is used for protection from the UV rays from the sun, so having this ingredient in a BB cream aids in protection of the skin. Many BB creams also have antioxidant components such as Vitamin A, E and C, which helps with anti-aging as well as evening out the skin tone. The foundation component of the BB cream allows the product to be used as a simple natural glowing coverage for the skin. Another added benefit of using a BB cream is that many do not clog the pores of our skin, instead it hydrates the skin. Although it may seem like you can sleep with it, it is still recommended to wash your face at night so that your skin can breathe better and feel more refreshed in the morning!
Of course, we all have different skin types: oily, dry, combination, neither. So, it is important to find a BB cream that is right for your skin. Most brands if not all, create BB creams for the various skin types along with different SPF’s and shades to better fit different skin. Higher SPF’s is recommended for those with more fair skin. For shade color you can find either light/medium or medium deep or nude, golden, or natural. It is recommended to try the different shades to see which one matches your skin type and gives you the affect you are looking for. Just remember: BB creams are used for a shiny, silky fresh face look.
