Also known as blemish cream or beauty cream, BB lotion is a cosmetic product with skincare benefits including moisturizing, anti-ageing and SPF protection.
What are the benefits of BB lotion?
This is an all-in-one product for your skin. In one bottle, you can get the benefits of two or three different products. This means you not only save time but also money.
BB lotion is both cosmetic and skincare. Your skin can get the benefits of multiple products in one. It covers blemishes and imperfections without irritating and brightens your finish while providing your skin with sun protection.
The coverage of the BB lotion is natural and moisturizing without being heavy or lumpy. Plus, you can easily apply the BB lotion with your fingers or sponges, allowing the product to blend into the skin for easy application.
However, many times you make the wrong choice when shopping for a BB lotion. They may not match your skin tone, making you appear darker or whiter.
Before buying, you must know your skin type. A BB lotion that makes your friends look flawless doesn't have to do the same for you. You have to know if your skin is oily, dry or sensitive. If you have dry skin, opt for a moisturizing BB lotion. If you have oily or combination skin, opt for oil-control options or matte bb creams. People with normal skin can apply a moisturizing BB lotion to make their skin look smoother.
You can use BB lotion instead of foundation in your everyday life.
Here are our recommended steps for applying BB cream:
1. Apply BB lotion to cleansed skin after moisturizing.
2. Apply BB lotion with a brush, sponge or fingers. You can also use your fingers to make it easier to blend into the skin. Make sure to blend the bb lotion well to avoid uneven colour.
3. Apply concealer to any problem areas for more coverage. BB lotions do not require powdering, but oily areas may need a bit of powder for setting.
If you know you'll be exposed to the sun for extended periods of time, add an extra SPF product before using your bb lotion for long-term protection.
