What is BB Cream and Should I Be Using It?

What bb cream can do for your skin

Recently on Facebook, I was asked the following question, “I was wondering……what is BB cream and should I be using it?”

BB stands for “Beauty Balm” or “Blemish Balm” depending on the formula, and they’re basically tinted moisturizers with skin care ingredients and SPF built in. We like to call them tinted moisturizers with benefits.

At Carmilla Skincare we firmly believe in using moisturizers on your skin, especially with a sunscreen… Preferably an SPF of 30 on a day to day basis.

Whether you like to use a SPF moisturizer that is tinted is definitely a personal preference. Some like to use it to help even out their skin tone and in replacement of a foundation. We use Lira Clinical’s BB Collection, which is very translucent when applied to the skin and blends well for most, and our clients love it.
