BB creams (short for beauty or blemish balms) are like if foundation
and skin care had a baby. In addition to hydrating and evening out skin tones, BB creams also treat your skin with antioxidants and other hydrating, brightening, blemish-eviscerating, and fine line-filling ingredients; plus they offer broad-spectrum SPF (crucial). There’s a reason their monstrous popularity put K-Beauty
on the map once word got out about their popularity in Korea. When you want to look like you actually drink eight glasses of water a day, BB creams give you evened-toned and plump-looking skin with the ease of smearing on any tinted moisture with your hands
. BB Creams offer all the benefits of a light-to-medium foundation (and sometimes fuller-coverage ones as well) in a speedier formula that protects you from the elements. They do double duty to work skin care into your makeup routine so you can more efficiently do both — how clever. Here are a variety of the best BB creams for any skin type.
