The BB Cream explained

In theory it’s an all-in-one cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. It was developed by a German dermatologist, in the 1960s and then developed further in the 1980s by Korean cosmetics companies. It only began showing up in the western side of the world until 2012. BB cream stands for blemish balm, blemish base, beauty balm or beblesh balm. BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation,banx sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage. Korean women mostly use it as an alternative to foundation, and the Korean formulations often contain a whitening ingredient. Western markets opt out of the bleaching craze as this demographic favors the beach glow. The coverage is often mineral-based, and is intended to both cover and treat blemishes such as acne, sun spots and age spots. It also has anti-wrinkle, anti-inflammatory and soothing effects. Several contain hyaluronic acid for plumping skin and Vitamin C to treat it. All in all it’s a great way to de-clutter you makeup cupboard and save yourself a few steps in the process.

    What you published made a lot of sense. But, think on this, what if you composed
    a catchier title? I ain’t saying your content is not solid., however suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean WTF is a BB Cream | De Candellence is a little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news titles
    to grab people to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two
    to grab people interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
