The Buzz behind BB Creams:
I am sure, after all the buzz beauty balms have created in
the last two years; you must have got one in your make-up stash, if no than you
will soon get one but first you need to know what actually BB Cream is.

History of BB Creams: It all started in
Germany back in 1960’s the  first BB
cream was formulated by a Dermatologist Christine Schrammek, M.D. who wanted a
single cream that would protect skin and provide coverage after laser
treatments to his patients. In Korea back in mid 90’s Korean Market came up
with an idea of all in one, multitasking skin cream which was a hit.
 BB creams are short
for beauty balms or blemish balms and have been around for quite some time may
be decades.
BB Cream manufacturers claim that they combine the
benefits of serums/primer/tinted moisturizer/sunscreen in one cream so you may
get a multitasking product for your skin.
BB cream is a multifunctional cream and
it is suppose to make a good base for your make up by moisturizing, priming
& concealing the blemishes and redness over your face. It also provides
protection from sun as it contains SPF and hydrates your skin like a day cream.
Sounds so amazing, right?  It’s not enough BB creams also contain
anti-aging properties, if you are someone who requires lighter coverage, you
may easily replace your moisturizer and foundation with a BB cream.
Experts Opinion: 
Lisa Eldridge, No 7 Creative Consultant says: “…not only
is it an illuminator, moisturizer and protector with SPF15. It also has
corrective and balancing qualities. Your one stop shop to flawless, beautiful
          Ni’Kita Wilson, a cosmetic chemist at
Englewood Lab in New Jersey says “The idea of a well-formulated BB cream
is that it’s the only product you’ll need after you wash your face,”
 New York City and Miami-based dermatologist
Fredric Brandt, M.D.says  “BB cream is
perfect for a busy woman,”

BB Creams. The trick is to get a perfect shade that suits your skin, the best
tip I got once, is to treat your BB Cream like a skin care cream. Before

at the counter.
