For a little while now, beauty aficionados particularly Asians are going gaga over BB cream a.k.a. blemish balm.
And for those, who are still not aware yet, BB cream is the latest addition in the beauty arena. It was first considered as a treatment balm for patients who underwent laser skin surgery. Quality results then led to the stunning popularity of BB Cream as huge companies found its potential and made it as an addition to their range of beauty products thus, making it usable to the general public. Beauty brands in Korea have since developed BB cream and made it more suitable for Asian skin.
The real big thing about BB creams is that separate from being a skincare product, it is a therapeutic cream as well combined with make-up. Unlike a regular foundation, BB creams have (although not all) whitening and anti-aging properties. Aside from these, BB creams are also said to even out skin tone and lighten blemish scars.
Beauty connoisseurs rejoice for this new marvel as they get to save some dough with BB creams acting as a moisturiser, foundation, sun block, and make-up at the same time. Some skincare products could actually be get rif off. However, it is important that you shouldn’t do away with your daily skin care regime.
BB creams don’t discriminate a particular skin type. Whatever kind of skin you have, BB creams should be ok, even those with acne-troubled skin as they carry active ingredients to finish off those skin problems.
People troubled with dark under eye circles, bothering eye bags, red spots or acnes can find gratification with BB creams as they also act as good concealer.
These and more are the rationalities why BB creams acquired so much popularity in Asia and even across its borders.
