I call it the "alphabet creams". Yet another beauty innovation originating from Asia. BB creams were all the rage a few years ago. Now there's cc creams and dd creams. They offer many different benefits other than coverage. I'm currently using a cc cream by Peter Thomas Roth on a daily basis. Its my current must have. You can find these beauty must haves at sephora of course. They have it all.
BB CREAM- Beauty Balm
BB creams are like a lighter version of foundations. They have very little skincare benefits. It primes, controls shine, and provides coverage. It can also be layered with foundation. If you have dry skin I suggest using a moisturizer prior to applying.
CC creams are for evening out skin tone, making skin brighter, and firming. It also provides protection against free radicals and from the sun’s harmful rays.The consistency is light and mousse like. It can be used with foundation for added coverage, as a treatment and to prime the skin.
DD CREAM- Dynamic Do All
DD creams cover it all. it addresses dark marks, age spots, and sun damage. It brightens and evens out skin tone. For the oiler skin types it will mattify, minimize pores, and even soothe breakouts. If you are more on the dry side DD creams will hydrate and nourish. It has something for every skin type.
