The Use Of Cosmetics For The Face Tends To Be Oily?
Morning, for the completeness of cosmetics on skin types that tend to be oily but not acne, is it better with BB cream, CC cream or with a cushion powder? Could you please explain a little about the effects of each of these cosmetics and what are the possible side effects? thank you
Hello Poppymarlo22, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service for consultation.
Based on the understanding, BB cream stands for Blemish Balm, a type of ointment / cream used on the face, which functions to smooth the skin and to correct uneven facial skin tone or redness on the face by covering it with the color on the BB cream. Lighter texture than foundation. So it's no wonder that many women choose to use BB cream instead of foundation.
Meanwhile, CC cream stands for Color Correcting / Complexion Corrector which functions to correct uneven skin color. The texture is lighter than BB creams, and most of the CC creams on the market are equipped with vitamin C which can brighten the face and contains lycopene which functions to reduce redness of the skin.
Cushion is a BB cream / CC cream that is placed in a compact container (complete with glass and puff). So basically the texture is not much different from BB, CC crea or foundation, depending on which content the cushion contains. The advantage is that the applicator is in the form of a puff, so that when it is applied to facial skin it is more hygienic than using the hands which is usually done when using BB cream or CC cream.
Each product, both BB cream and CC cream and also Cushion, has its own information about the ingredients in it. For use on faces that tend to have acne, based on the texture, the choice of CC cream is safer than BB cream, because its texture tends to be light and is still safe for skin that tends to be dry or oily. It's just that for the level of coverage on the skin with acne scars, CC creams tend not to fully cover the skin compared to BB creams, which tend to be heavier in texture than CC creams.
You can check which product is safe for your oily skin type by checking the ingredients in the BB cream or CC cream. To be safer if used on oily skin, choose a BB cream or CC cream that is non-comedogenic / which can cause a tendency to form blackheads on the skin. Because oily skin types are very easy to block oil in the pores so that blackheads can form very easily. And never forget to choose a CC cream or BB cream that is equipped with SPF so that it can also protect your skin from sun exposure, which contains UV A and UV B.
You can try temporarily which one is suitable for your skin, whether CC cream or BB cream on the cheek near the ear, if it doesn't cause irritation or leaves a lot of oil then you can try another face area that is directly exposed to the sun. Or if not, you can consult with a dermatologist before choosing the CC cream or BB cream you want.
So much information from us, hope it is useful. Thanks.
