Get the lowdown on BB, CC and DD creams

Many ladies have heard a few terms come up this year and some might assume they all have to do with certain vitamins. BB, CC and DD beauty products continue to pop up in fashion and beauty magazines and a few women might be lost in translation. Glamour magazine recently discussed what these different names mean, and why they have become so popular as of late.

BB creams
The term BB cream refers to beauty or blemish balm and has been marketed in the beauty realm as a product that is an alternative to foundation. In most instances, items with the BB name fall somewhere between a sheer cream and a foundation.

A product like Elemis Rosepetal Cleanser may be the perfect option for ladies as this product works to hydrate the skin while replenishing moisture levels for an instant glow. The active healing powers of rose petal extract and lecithin helps to restore a youthful look to your complexion.

CC creams
Next on the list is the CC cream, or color correcting cream, according to Glamour. This type of anti aging skin cream is similar to the BB products, though it is meant to pack even more anti-aging goodness into every punch, while offering a bit more coverage.

Skin care beauty products like Colorescience Sheer Creme Foundation might be the perfect CC item for those looking to try it as this silky foundation goes on ultra smooth for a gorgeous finish. Plus, the product is chock full of vitamins A, C and E, offering your skin a boost in health and hydration, while seamlessly hiding uneven skin tones and imperfections.

DD creams
The last of the lettered skin care products to date is the DD cream, which is still in the works. According to the magazine, DD creams, or daily defense products, will focus less on complexion care and more on enhancing ladies body and feet.

Because these varieties are meant to repair the everyday wear and tear of tough body skin and the skin on your feet, the products are predicted to be much more heavy duty and nourishing than BB or CC options.

For now, women interested in starting the new year off with baby soft feet and body can try Elemis Spa At Home Frangipani Monoi Body Oil to not only feel silky smooth, but also benefit from complete hydration. The luxurious body skincare product work to provide the skin with a layer of hydration, along with the benefits of free radical protection.
