What are BB & CC Creams?
BB and CC creams are a relatively new addition to the world of beauty products. The main thing to know is that they are both seen as multipurpose items that can be used for a wide range of beauty needs.
BB creams are makeup products that offer skin benefits. The “BB” stands for “beauty balm” or “blemish balm.” It’s a lighter formulation, meaning it can be worn fairly easily, even if you aren’t wearing other kinds of makeup. Many BB creams offer ingredients that help with nourishing, repairing, and protecting the skin. These ingredients include vitamins, antioxidants, moisturizers, sun-protecting SPF, brighteners, and skin-firming agents.
CC creams offer more coverage than their BB counterparts, making them a touch heavier in terms of their finish and formulation. The “CC” here means “color control” or “complexion corrector”, and these products help with redness and other discoloration, under eye circles, and more. CC cream also focuses on anti-aging properties, using ingredients that can be found in BB cream, as well as additives like green tea, soy, and shea butter that smooth and hide wrinkles. CC creams usually contain SPF protection to guard against the sun’s harmful rays, too!
Choosing a BB Cream or a CC Cream for Your Skin Type
Knowing which one of these creams is right for you can be as easy as simply being aware of the type of skin you have!
For example, if you have oily skin, choose CC cream. This is due to the fact that CC cream has a matte finish and texture. For even more helpfulness, choose a CC cream that is oil-free.
One the other hand, if you have dry skin, go for BB cream. This is due to the fact that BB creams include many hydrating ingredients like ceramides, hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and panthen
