What is BB Cream Anyway?

Have you heard of bb cream? If you haven’t, now’s the time to find out. If you’re looking to turn back the hands of time this product may be for you.

Perhaps you have heard of bb cream but didn’t know what it meant or what was in it. BB stands for blemish balm or blemish base. This is an Asian cosmetic that has more recently been brought to the Western world. Actually, it was not developed in Asia by rather by a skin specialist in Germany.

BB cream has a number of formulations and qualities so when purchasing this product one needs to be careful. Not all bb cream is created equal. It is known for its anti-inflammatory properties which promotes a soothing effect to the skin. This cream is tinted for covering blemishes. The formula incorporates a moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock all in one so all you need is one product. This cream is found in a number of brand name products such as Skin Food, The Face Shop and Missha to mention a few.

Western world exposure to this cream didn’t begin until 2011 by well known cosmetic companies such as Garnier, Dior and Clinique. The formulation for the West is not the same and in particular the whitening/brightening components have been removed from bb cream.

The orientals have always been known for their beautiful complexions and not surprisingly so. They have now passed their beauty secrets to us so that we can have beautiful complexions as well. This product has been fully tested and endorsed by cosmeticians. Everyone would love to have silky smooth and bright skin. It is believed that your cosmetic kit isn’t complete if you don’t have bb cream in it.

Some of the new formulation availble in the United States have added other components such as acne care, pore reducing agents as well as anti-wrinkle promoters. This helps to bring back the younger look as well as protect you from further damage due to toxins and radiation.

Within a few days to a week of applying bb cream, you should see an appreciable difference. This cream is meant to wear everyday and in fact can be worn to bed. This isn’t like regular makeup, it actually improves the quality of your skin. It has the ability to mange acne, moisturize and brighten your complexion. It is noncomedogenic meaning it won’t plug your pores and in fact it refines pore size making your skin look smoother than ever and can effectively remove brown spots. You know, those liver spots and freckles and it does all of this while covering any imperfections you want to hide. Dramatic changes can be seen within a few months.
