Beauty Monday – Find Your BB Power

For a lot of women signs of aging mostly translate to loss of firmness that is most visible on the contours and the neck. With age, the skin produces less structural fibers and their supporting framework progressively weakens hence, skin regeneration slows down by up to 50%, leading to visible signs of aging: wrinkles, loss of firmness and a dull complexion. With so many products in the market, one loses focus of what to use and how to manage your skin amidst a busy schedule.

The revolutionary BB creams are short for beauty balms or blemish balms that acts as a single cream to protect skin and provide appropriate coverage. It essentially combines the skills of a serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock.
“The idea of a well-formulated BB cream is that it’s the only product you’ll need after you wash your face,” said Ni’Kita Wilson, a cosmetic chemist at Englewood Lab in New Jersey.
For the first time, L’Oréal’s skincare and make-up Laboratories have merged their expertise to create a new generation of skincare, an anti-ageing BB Cream.
