As we continue to venture into a new world of naturally radiant skin, the popularity of BB & CC creams are certainly taking the main stage when it comes to flawless coverage built from on the basis of skin care. But there is still a lot of us who are seemingly confused about the difference between the two and how they benefit your skin. So without further ado, let’s walk you through it.
What is BB Cream?
BB Cream stands for Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm. Much like a tinted moisturiser, a BB cream acts as a primer, moisturiser, and foundation in one go. Plus, it has the added importance of skincare and SPF protection. Not only does this smooth and correct your complexion but it evens out your skin tone, hydrates you and shields you from harsh UV light and related signs of aging.
BB sure to choose a high quality BB cream for high quality, cleverly formulated BB creams are usually bursting with vitamins, antioxidants and medical grade ingredients to further support your skin health.
How Do You Use BB Cream?
Now here’s the beauty. Apply exactly as you would your morning moisturiser! Ensuring your face is adequately cleansed and dry, take a small amount and warm the product in your hands before gently blending your BB cream across your forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, jaw and neckline. While BB creams are designed to give off the appeal of a natural glowing foundation, you are actually applying a product that does not clog your pores and is beneficial to your skin.
What is a CC Cream?
CC cream is the abbreviation for Colour Correcting. In addition to doing just that, a CC cream will actively cover redness, hide (and treat) acne, cover dark spots or pigmentation, and add a little radiance.
How Do You Use It?
Precisely as you would apply a BB cream, you apply a CC cream in the exact same manner. However, be sure to focus more on any problem areas such as aging or dark areas, pigmentation, or the odd pimple we are all prone to developing.
As multi-tasking products, BB & CC Creams combine several steps to simplify a skincare and makeup routine and essentially do the same job as a traditional foundation or concealer. At the same time, the BB Cream includes ingredients that compliment any skin care routine.
No matter whether you have dry, combination or oily skin, there are BB & CC creams to suit your complexion type and target particular skin concerns such as dark spots or visible signs of ageing.
If you’re looking to simplify your morning routine whilst wear products which are beneficial to your skin, then consider trying a BB or CC cream.
