BB Cream, aka Blemish Balm, is *the* hottest beauty product in Asia right now! The product originated in Germany and was initially used by dermatologists to help patients who have gone through laser skin surgery soothe and regenerate the skin.After I found out that I was very wrong about my initial impression of BB Creams and all its *real* capabilities, I decided to go out and get my very own! I can't wait to try it out! Do you beautiful ladies have your favorite brand of BB Cream that you'd like to recommend???
Soon after, Korean celebrities started using the cream and a craze was born. Big companies then took the idea and turned it into a product widely available to the public. The new product is suitable for all skin types, especially those with sensitive and acne-prone skin. It has the advantages of both a makeup and skincare product. It can even out skintone, camouflage undereye circles, acne scars and add radiance to the skin without the heavy mask-like effects of a foundation. Prolonged used of the product will also help improve the overall texture of the skin and fade acne scars.
