Dr. Joel Schlessinger discusses BB and CC creams with Omaha Magazine
Multipurpose products like BB and CC creams are incredibly popular right now. Dr. Joel Schlessinger recently shared his expert opinion about these skin care innovations in an Omaha Magazine article titled “BB and CC Creams.” In the article, he discusses what sets these formulas apart and why they’ve become such hot products.
These products have only recently become popular in the United States, Dr. Joel Schlessinger explains.
The first BB cream, which stands for “beauty balm,” was created by a German dermatologist in the 1960s to protect and heal skin. In the 1980s, the formula spread to Korea and Japan, becoming one of Asia’s best-kept beauty secrets. It wasn’t until recently, Dr. Joel Schlessinger says, that BB creams came to the United States. Since then, skin care companies have advanced to CC formulas, which stand for “color corrective.”
Dr. Joel Schlessinger explains the difference between BB and CC creams.
Most women can use BB creams as an all-in-one moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunscreen. CC creams provide the same benefits with added color correction.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger says the difference between BB and CC formulas lies in coverage and weight.
“CC creams tend to be lighter with better coverage while BB creams are heavier and typically don’t offer full concealing benefits,” he says. “CC creams can be very beneficial for acne-prone or oily complexions due to their lighter formulation and full coverage. Investing in a good color correcting formula can shorten your daily routine, enhance your skin’s appearance, and prevent premature aging.”
