Lets get back to the ABCD of beauty.
1 BB Cream
BB stands for Blemish Balm which helps in hiding blemishes on the skin. They’re lighter than foundation but heavier than tinted moisturizers. BB creams provide coverage with added skin care benefits like SPF and anti-oxidants the list goes on depending on what brand you choose. From Maybelline to Garnier and Ponds all of these brands have BB creams. A BB cream gives you an even complexion by instantly blurring imperfections, giving your skin a smooth texture. It hydrates the skin and gives an over all glow.
2 CC Cream
Standing for Complexion Care , a CC cream works along the lines of a BB cream, rectifying your complexion and hiding dark spots and redness. Lakme, L’oreal, Clinique and Sephora have really good CC creams. They’re extremely light in texture and is perfect for daily use. They win over foundations and concealers totally plus CC cream is cheaper.
3 DD Cream
This beauty product is difficult to get in the market and is something not many people know about. Standing for Dynamic Do-All or Daily Defense , DD creams are used to reduce signs of ageing. Using this regularly will help in reducing wrinkles , fine lines along with balancing your skin tone. DD creams have a thick texture and is suitable for slightly mature skin.
All of these creams come with SPF so you do not need to add another layer of sunscreen over it.
