BB Cream = Skin Care + Makeup

by Jaisika Wilsonn author
BB cream is an innovative product that works both as skin care cream and makeup. A German dermatologist developed this cream originally in the 1950s. Also called Blemish Balm or Beauty Balm, the cream was formulated to help conceal redness and soothe inflammation on skin post-laser surgery or chemical peel treatment.

Decades later, this formulation became famous in Korea. In 2005, a few reputable brands brought this cream to the market. Thereafter, it became the beauty secret of Korean actresses. Its fame quickly spread to other parts of Asia.

The cream became the talk of the continent due to its multitasking abilities. It works as a primer, moisturizer, foundation, concealer, and sunscreen. Certain advanced brands today have even infused anti-aging properties in a BB, making it a complete skin care formula.

A Boon for Those Who Hate Heavy Makeup
Women who love a more natural look should grab a jar of BB cream. Reviews suggest that the cream eliminates the need for heavy foundation or concealer. If you already have good skin, with only a few light blemishes and lines, you may not even need a foundation at all.

Blemish Balm cream contains tinted moisturizers that provide light to medium coverage of skin imperfections. You can get a flawless finish that looks natural by blending this formula properly on the skin. Make sure you choose the right shade that matches your natural skin tone.

When choosing tones, apply a bit of the cream on your cheek or neck to test the shade. Avoid testing on hands, as the skin on hands is often slightly different in tone that that of the face.

Also, read reviews of BB creams. Nowadays, several brands have designed Blemish Balms, which may be different in their working, shade, and quality. Reviews will help you know which cream is the most popular and which is right for your skin. Similar to shopping for anti-aging wrinkle creams, you must shop for BB from a well-known brand.

BB for Different Skin Types
1.For oily skin, choose a BB that gives a matte finish.
2.For dry skin, choose one with watery formulation. Thick creams may cause more dryness and even give a caked-on look.
3.For uneven skin tone, you can choose one that contains skin lightening agents that help to balance your skin tone.

Did you know BB formula is non-comedogenic and hypo-allergenic? So, it does not clog pores and does not cause allergies. That’s the reason experts regard BB as a great formula for all skin types. You only need to be specific regarding your skin shade and type.
