What’s a BB Cream?
BB creams are a form of facial makeup with a skin-caring twist. An abbreviation for “beauty balm” or “blemish balm”, it has a lighter consistency and coverage than liquid or cream foundations with healing skincare benefits functioning like a tinted moisturizer, but only better.
This cosmetic has a beneficial blend of beauty and skincare products usually including moisturizer, primer, SPF, foundation, skin treatment, and concealer. BB creams were first developed in Germany by a dermatologist who wanted a single cream that would protect skin and provide coverage after laser treatments (Levitt, 2012)
What you need to craft 1 oz of BB Cream:
- 1 tbsp liquid/cream foundation
- 1/2 tsp concealer
- 1/2 tsp favorite moisturizer
- 1 tsp favorite makeup primer
- 1 tsp favorite sunscreen
- 1 – 3 drops of preferred essential oil
Mix together the ingredients until all components are evenly blended and distributed, adding the essential oils last. Place the finished product into a clean jar then a store it in a dark, cool area to prolong the shelf-life & voila! You now have a BB Cream customized to your perfection and made with your loving care.
(scoop out the product with a clean utensil to avoid introducing bacteria to the preservative-free mixture.)
