What are BB Creams?
Short for beauty balms or blemish balms. They were first developed in Germany by a dermatologist who wanted a single cream that would protect skin and provide coverage after laser treatments. These all-in-one products combine the functions of a primer, anti-aging serum, moisturizer, and light foundation—plus, many contain added benefits like SPF.
Though I prefer using individual moisturizer, primer and foundation: BB Cream is definitely my go-to on mornings when I'm in a rush. I use Younique's BB Flawless. (It's gluten-free and vegan, woot!) This all-in-one moisturizer, treatment, and foundation works great to smooth out the skin, correct my complexion, and of course offers protection from harmful UV rays all day long. It works great as a lightweight foundation on its own and reduces shine, giving me a natural-looking matte finish.
