Here is a little history on the origin of BB Cream (courtesy of Wikipedia) before we get started on whether or not we actually need it…
“BB cream, also known as Blemish Balm, Blemish Base
Originally formulated in Germany by dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek in the 1950s,[note 1] the cream was initially used to protect skin after laser procedures and surgery, while also providing light coverage.
Companies began in 2011 to launch BB creams in Western markets, although whitening properties are a main selling point of BB creams in Asia” –http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BB_cream
So there you have a little outline of why the product initially was created. Now let’s talk about who really needs it. Here’s an outline of skin types best suited for BB Cream, formula.
– Dry or cracking skin can benefit for BB cream because it will cover, protect and moisturize
– Skin that has deep pores or scaring will notice a different win the overall texture in the skin once applied
