What Is BB Cream: Know From Dermatologist

Written By Dr Surbhi, MD Skin

Last updated: 03/10/18

My patients often ask me “Doctor, what is BB cream?” BB cream stands for blemish balm, blemish base, beblesh balm, and beauty balm. BB cream has multiple functions and can replace serum, moisturiser, primer, foundation and sunblock and also helps in tackling your key skin concern.


Thus, the choice of BB cream depends on your skin type and skin concern. I have reviewed the commonly available brands of BB cream that are free from major toxic chemicals and created this table to help you choose the SAFE and BEST BB cream for your skin.
