BB cream, also known as Blemish Balm or Blemish Base, is a cosmetic item sold in Korea.

BB cream started out as a therapeutic moisturiz
er in Germany used to treat the irritated skin of the patients who went under peeling, laser, or microdermabrasion.

There are several BB Cream brands such as HANSKIN,Skin79, Sk

But the most popular brand are the Skin 79.

General BB Cream characteristics:

hout makeup look

• Provides perfect coverage just like a foundation but without
clogging pores or damaging the skin

• Conceals all types of pigmentatio
n, discoloration, acne and marks
• Healing properties which soften, smoothen and refine skin
• Encourages skin regeneration to create and maintain youthful skin

How to choose a BB cream

1. Identify your skin tone (very fair, fair, normal or dark?) and skin type (normal, dry or oily?)
2. Now, ask yourself what are your needs. For example: acne reduction? brightening? sunblock? stronger oil control? caricaturisation? more coverage? etc.

3. Now, shortlist or select the most suitable/ideal BB cream for yourself.

Choose the right BB Cream, by determining your skin type first.
