What BB Cream Can Do For Your Skin

What is BB Cream?  BB cream is short for ‘blemish balm’ cream. It’s a versatile combination of products such as moisturizer, primer, SPF, foundation, skin treatment, and concealer. It was originally developed in Germany as an all-in-1 cream to be used by patient’s post-laser treatment for protection, coverage, and hydration. The concept of a comprehensive one-stop-shop cream spread to South Asia, particularly Korea where women were able to shorten their lengthy beauty process with the use of this all-encompassing cream. The trend then came over to the United States where it’s been popular for the last five years.

How does BB Cream work?

One of the most exciting things about BB cream is that it can improve the appearance of your skin, in addition to providing coverage. BB creams frequently contain antioxidants such Vitamin A, C and E which can help improve skin elasticity and brightness. Some contain hyaluronic acid which deeply moisturizes skin. BB creams also typically contain an SPF, which is the ultimate ingredient in your fight against premature skin aging. With its concealing properties, BB cream can even out skin tone and perfect unevenness. Light-reflecting properties also make the complexion look brighter.

How to use BB Cream

For some women, a BB cream is the perfect all-in-1 product and for some it’s the initial product they use before applying a heavier foundation. If you have normal or blemish-free skin, a pea-size or slightly more of the product should be enough to even out your skin tone. If you’re looking for more coverage you can use the BB cream as an advanced, skin-enhancing primer. It can help conceal acne scars, pimples and dark spots. Whether you’re using it as a base or standalone product, Garnier’s 5-in-1 Miracle Skin Perfector BB cream promises to hydrate, renew your skin, even tone and perfect.
