Have you ever wondered how Asians (Koreans in particular) get their skin to be so smooth and fair? Well, let’s skip the whole healthy diet and lifestyle discussion because I found out one shortcut, *drumroll please*, and it’s BB Cream.
Great skin has been considered as one of the greatest ways in looking good. No matter how good a person dresses up, I usually find a serious case of bad skin as a deal-breaker. It, in one way or another, shows how much you take care of yourself or you otherwise have very sensitive skin. Anyway on to BB Creams, It is very popular to Asians and has been getting recognition in the West.
So, what are BB Creams?
The BB in BB Cream stands for Blemish Balm. According to Wikipedia, it was “Originally formulated in Germany by Dr. Christine Schrammek. It was initially used by dermatologists to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and refine highly sensitive skin while providing light coverage for post-laser scars, acne and other blemishes.” The BB Cream has been labeled as the secret of Korean actresses.
BB Creams have a lot of properties including anti-acne, anti-wrinkle, oil control, moisturizing, sunblock and others. With BB Creams sprouting like mushroom in the market, some of the more prominent and well-received products are:
This is believed to be the top selling BB cream in Korea. However, this is not for the budget conscious since the price is a bit steep.
Each offers different properties and some brands have more variants and shades to choose from. If you aren’t sure on what to purchase, try searching on helpful reviews online. As for the availability, you can purchase them on Amazon. If you have a friend in Korea, you can ask him/her to buy it for you because it’s so much cheaper there.
