Lightweight makeup is slowly making its way into our hearts. Gaining quick popularity for its smooth, creamy texture is the BB cream- the Captain America of quick makeup, which not only shields your skin, but also protects it from environmental stressors. BB is quick, skin-friendly and easy-to-carry. On days when you feel like going for the no-makeup-makeup look, BB can be your perfect fit. Here are a few facts about the BB cream that will convince you to make it your go-to makeup companion.
1. BB stands for “beauty balm” or “blemish balm”
BB creams were originally created in the 1960s as a quick fix for your acne and it gained popularity in Asia shortly after. BB is often called the ‘blemish balm’ as it provides a nice and healthy glow to your face while covering blemishes. They’re extremely easy-to-use and are meant to hydrate as well as protect your skin.
2. BB is a multi-tasker
The BB cream has an all-in-one formulation that has the combined benefits of a moisturiser, foundation, concealer and a sunscreen. With SPF 25/PA++, the Spawake BB Cream also multi-tasks as a sunscreen by protecting your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
P.S. You can mix a BB cream with a foundation for a smoother, non-cakey coverage. Once you discover this, you won’t ever go back to regular makeup.
3. Moisture sets BB apart
If you still don’t know the difference between a BB and a CC cream, remember that BB= Hydration. Unlike a traditional moisturizer that dries out quickly, a BB cream offers constant hydration that gives you a dewy, plump look throughout the day. The Spawake BB Cream is power packed with moisture. It nourishes your skin and locks in moisture for up to eight hours.
4. They’re lightweight
BB creams are perfect for a tinted lightweight coverage that is hardly achieved with foundations. When you need a quick touch up before going out, keeping BB in your bags can be very handy. The application is quick and easy, which can save you a lot of time. It doesn’t need brushes. You can apply it directly on your face and spread it out with your hands. It has a light and moisturising formula which makes it so smooth that you can’t even feel it.
It takes a lot of exploration to find the makeup fit that suits your skin. If you need a better coverage than BB, you can also use the Spawake CC Cream which gives you an evenly toned look and moisturises skin for 10 long hours! Keep exploring, keep loving your skin and don’t forget to take off your makeup before you sleep. Your skin needs some time to breathe.
