BB Creams are a huge thing in beauty right now, they’re advertised everywhere….but what IS a BB Cream anyway and what’s so great about it?
Like a tinted moisturizer with added benefits, multi-tasking BB creams are a blend of sunscreen, moisturizer and foundation. They’re everything combined into one easy step – they make your skin look flawless while delivering amazing skincare benefits too. Originally developed by a German dermatologist to hydrate the skin after laser treatments, BB creams are now geared toward those who want to streamline their skincare regimens and achieve a natural-looking glow. They are well-suited to women with busy schedules who don’t care to apply multiple products.
What’s behind the hype?
It’s really a phenomenon that the beauty industry has not seen in a long time. Unlike tinted moisturizers that replaced the cakey makeup of years past, BB creams feature anti-aging skincare properties and protection.
The challenge for consumers is to find the best fit for their particular needs. Some BB creams are lightly pigmented to provide luminosity, while others offer heavier coverage. Some are better for dry skin, others more effective on oily skin. It all depends on what you’re looking to achieve. For some it’s hydration, for others it could be the treatment of hyper pigmentation. If the product doesn’t have the appropriate ingredients, you won’t get the results you want. That’s why it’s so important to check the labels. While no products will be a miracle in a bottle for everyone, aestheticians can help you choose the right BB cream for your needs.
