Today we read an article on a Korean site that was rather interesting.


74% of Korean Women uses BB Creams as they are convenient and loved for it’s simplicity.

This marketing ploy is a big mistake that can have a negative impact on the skin. BB Creams cannot be Sunscreen replacement as BB Creams alone are not effective in blocking ultraviolet light.

Therefore, girls, if you are scared of the sun, make sure you apply your BB Creams BEFORE applying your sunscreen! Smile
