Beauty crazes come and go, but the latest innovation is something that most busy women – or those with a low-key beauty routine – will certainly welcome. The newest trend comes from Asia and they’re called BB Creams.
The “BB” stands for “Blemish Balm” or “Beauty Balm” and it’s – in a nutshell – an all-in-one beauty cream that incorporates a moisturizer, a hint of foundation and sunblock. Some products are also adding anti-aging properties to the mix .
Developed by a German dermatologist, the cream was created to use on patients who underwent laser skin surgery as a soothing balm to treat sensitive skin and hide blemishes and scars. The creams then gained a huge following by Korean actresses who praised the cream for its ability to make skin look bright, healthy and natural.
Stay tuned for these creams to hit the North American market this month and early next year, because after all, who doesn’t want flawless looking skin?
