Cosmetic Lounge: Difference between BB, CC and DD creams:

These days cosmetic counters are bombarded with a confusing array of skin correctors and you may feel caught up in the swarm of the alphabet creams-like BB cream, CC cream and DD cream. To find out which one is appropriate for you, let’s decode these cream acronyms:



 
BB:
BB stands for “beauty balm" or "beauty benefit".
It offers daily sun protection, extra hydration and coverage just like a lighter foundation.

CC: 
CC stands for "color control" or "color corrector" or "complexion care".

Like the BB cream, this one too offers benefits like hydration, sun protection and coverage but with extra quality of homogenizing your skin. 

Difference between BB and CC creams:
CC creams are meant to address issues like redness and sallowness but BB creams are like a lighter foundation (with some skin care benefits thrown in).
A CC cream is lighter on the skin as compared to BB cream and has more of a whipped, fluffy feel and finish.

So, you can say that CC cream is an upgraded version of BB cream.

DD:
DD stands for “daily defense".
Like its predecessors, it offers sun protection, hydration and balances uneven skin tone, though DDs are created for dry areas like feet, knees and elbows.
 
Now, as you know what these cream acronyms are all about and the purpose they serve. I am sure it will be easy for you to select the one.
