Check out my guest Blog post for InWithSkin on BB Creams:
Seems like everyone is talking about BB Creams lately, but most of us have no idea what they even are! What in the world makes these new skincare creams so important?
BB Creams (also known as Beauty Balms and/or Blemish Balms) were created by German dermatologists. They caught on quickly in Europe, Korea and other parts of Asia when a famous Korean celebrity claimed BB Cream made her skin flawless! Now, companies such as MAC, Clinique, Boscia, Estee Lauder, and Garnier are making their own versions available in the U.S.
So what makes these creams so special? BB Creams are great little multi-taskers that combine ingredients such as vitamin C and antioxidants to help brighten, moisturize, prime and protect skin. They also act as an alternative to foundation. All of these amazing ingredients in one bottle help eliminate the need to use so many products and simplify our daily beauty routines!
BB Creams were also designed to give a more sheer, natural, and radiant complexion. They currently come in two different shades, light and medium. These creams are designed to give full coverage without the added thickness of foundation. BB Creams also claim to help lighten the skin, hide acne and sun spots, help regenerate the skin, provide sun protection, smooth and soften the skin, and provide a more youthful look and feel.
With so many versions of BB Creams quickly becoming available, it may take some work to find your perfect fit. But thanks to all of the wonderful benefits they offer and the simplicity and cost effectiveness of these products, they are certainly worth checking out!
