That is the question. You have probably heard of BB creams and more recently, CC creams. BB stands for beauty balm and CC stands for color correction. BB and CC creams have become very popular recently. In my opinion, they are an excellent addition to your daily skin care regimen. These creams are hybrid creams. Not only do they contain a light tint to provide light to medium coverage, they also contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to protect your skin from UV rays. In addition, they contain anti-aging ingredients like antioxidants, peptides, and moisturizers. You can even use them in combination with other anti-aging creams and serums.

Beware though, each cream has a different texture and feel. You can test different BB and CC creams out at cosmetic counters and cosmetic stores. Some creams do not contain enough sunblock to protect your skin. Remember to check labels when you are evaluating a BB/CC cream and look for zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in combination of at least 6%.

BB creams are my secret to great looking skin. They help protect, renew and even my skin tone while I'm wearing it! So, to answer the question to BB or not to BB, I say, yes to BB!
