Hello my beauties,
How have you all been doing? I know it’s been ages since my last post. To be honest I had been super duper busy lately and couldn’t manage take out time to get back to you. Thankyou so much for all your lovely comments, texts, mails regarding my blogs I really appreciate that; it’s really great to see you all being benefited by my blogs and I love you all so much!!! To begin back with my blogs I thought of starting up with the BB, CC and DD creams which I learned all over. So, here we go!!
The market is so flooded with these alphabetic beauty formulations, you can literally dive into it. Brands from high end to low end each has come up with it’s own BB, CC, DD or the coming up EE or GG cream and still you find yourself confused to make a choice among them. Well, my beauties I’m going to tell you all you want know about these alphabetic creams- and what they actually do?
“BB, CC, or any alphabet soup creams can be excellent all in one products for some women, but for many companies the labels are just marketing,” says Board Certified NYC Dermatologist Dr. Rebecca Baxt. So while choosing these creams you must always check the active ingredients of the product fitting into your needs.
BB : ‘Beauty Balm’ or ‘Blemish Balm’
This multifunctional soup was originally formulated in Germany in 1960’s, where a dermatologist developed a cream that would protect skin and provide coverage after laser treatments or surgeries. It was then introduced in South Korea and Japan in 1985. This all-in-one formulation became a sensation in South Korea and spread all through Asia.
What BB creams do?
Anti-aging components, including peptides and antioxidants such as vitamins A, E, and C
Moisturizing workhorses like hyaluronic acid and glycerin
Ingredients such as licorice and arbutin that help even out skin tone
Light-reflecting mica to give skin a luminous finish
Silicone-based ingredients, such as dimethicone, that help smooth the skin, acting much like a foundation primer does
Effective sun protection, with broad spectrum SPF 30 or higher.
CC : ‘Complexion Corrector’ or ‘Correct & Cover’ or ‘Color Corrector’
The Complexion Corrector cream is loaded with vitamins C and E and are somewhat similar to BB creams in a way however they are generally a lot lighter in consistency and coverage. Definitely perfect for a minimal coverage or a “no makeup” look just focusing on color correction. CC cream is best for those who are acne-prone, have dull skin, dark spots or constant redness
What CC creams do?
Lighter than a BB cream, CC cream’s primary purpose is to correct color-related skin issues, such as sallowness or redness. Like BB cream, it has SPF as well leading to sun protection.
DD Creams : ‘Dynamic Do-All’ or ‘Disguise and Diminish’ or ‘Daily Defense’
Fresh to the alphabet cream craze, DD creams are a super cream. They combine the power and benefits of both BB and CC creams, however their primary focus is anti-aging and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. They are formulated to yield results with continued use, so a DD cream should be incorporated into daily routines to see improvements in skin. In Japan, there is a DD Cream which is a snail based serum – nothing to do with tinted creams
What DD creams do?
The anti-aging specialty of the cream works to diminish wrinkles and fine lines throughout use. Additionally, DD cream will balance skin tone and protect the most sensitive areas of your skin.
The whole difference in a jiffy : ❤
Thoughts: If you want a quick one step, I-have-no-time coverage with skin boosters then definitely go for either BB, CC or DD creams, there are tons out there in the market with varying properties, prices, benefits and coverage, it’s quite easy to find the one that is perfect for you. If you’re a foundation kind of person I’m all for that too. You could use a sheer CC or DD as a base then apply your foundation as well, include it in your daily skin care routine as a moisturiser. The possibilities are endless!! Further waiting to get hands on the upcoming EE, GG……………. and so on alphabetic creams and whatever benefits they come up with.
