Q. What is BB cream and what are the benefits?


A. The newest buzz in makeup is something called a BB cream. What is it and what are the benefits?


BB cream tends to stand for "blemish balm" or "beauty balm." These are one-step products that can conceal and correct skin texture and tone, while also protecting with SPF.


It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer or as your regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage.
