Now, all-in-one 'liquid gold' beauty cream that conceals and hydrates skin
A versatile cream by a German dermatologist, which was invented in the 1960s to protect patients' skin after surgery and was a hot trend in Asia throughout the 1980s, has now become the must-have beauty product in the United States, it has been revealed.
BB cream is designed for any age group, skin tone and skin type, and most versions come with a SPF built in, which is important for anti-aging.
"BB cream is your beauty balm or blemish balm," Fox News quoted Sara Biria, a pro lead artist for Sephora, as saying.
"So, it actually helps to cover, treat, protect, conceal and also hydrate the skin. It's such a unique formula, but it's an all-in-one product, and anyone can use it," she said.
Dermatologist Debra Jaliman says her patients come in asking about this "liquid gold".
"It has a camouflage component," Jaliman, author of 'Skin Rules: Trade Secrets From a Top New York Dermatologist', said.
"It has an anti-aging component, and for many people, it also has an anti-blemish component. So, if you want one product that does it all, this is your product," she said.
But, Dr. Marina Peredo, a New York board-certified dermatologist, said it probably won't turn back the hands of time, and advised using additional products with retinol, peptides and vitamins C and E for a younger appearance.
