With most BB Creams typically combining the separate functions of common skincare items such as sunscreen, primer, concealer, moisturiser moisturiser, illuminator and in some cases, foundation into a single, creamy tube-like application; you can kiss goodbye to a time-consuming morning beauty routine, simplifying the hardest part of the day and giving your bathroom cabinet welcome breathing space! For many people, this simplification of their daily beauty routine and the time it saves is enough reason alone to make a beeline for BB Cream.
BB CREAM BENEFIT #2: IN-BUILT SUN PROTECTION
All good BB Creams come with in-built sunscreen (as do many modern cosmetics), which gives you the confidence to leave the house with a radiant glow and return without looking like a rock lobster! Once again, this handy perk also saves you the time and hassle of applying sunscreen separately to your face, which let’s be honest – can be a real nuisance at the best of times!
BB CREAM BENEFIT #3: LIGHT ON APPLICATION, SHEER ON COVERAGE
Another handy benefit of BB Cream’s is unlike tinted moisturiser’s they provide sheer coverage on application, effectively covering up common facial blemishes like redness, uneven skin tone, sallow complexion and even minor acne. However, unlike foundation and other traditional forms of heavier make-up, BB Cream is light and shine-free on application, allowing your skin to “breathe” – a handy benefit for those of us prone to acne. Please note, if your blemishes are severe (I.e. Rosacea) than CC Cream (Colour Correcting Cream) is probably your best bet.
BB CREAM BENEFIT #4: ALL DAY MOISTURISING
Whilst this benefit doesn’t turn heads as quite as much as it once did in the good old days of concrete-thick foundation and oily make-up, BB Creams are universally equipped with strong moisturising properties to give your face 24 the hour hydration it needs. This makes for much smoother skin, slowing down the signs of ageing and allowing you to apply make-up with greater ease for dare I say, a more elegant result!
