What is a BB Cream?

Watching some commercials on TV recently I started to see BB creams announced here and there. Obviously in America we find lots of abbreviations... so I didn't know what BB stand for... I did some research, and this is what if found. The original BB cream stands for blemish balm, a product in the ’60s in Germany. It wasn’t very popular until about a couple of years ago when a few Korean actresses started using these BB creams that had brighteners, and they loved them. They talked them up, and since they were trendsetters the popularity spread through Asia and now around the world. Why are these BB creams so popular? Because they are easy to use and don't require women to layer products. One of the most common mistakes women make is that they put on their sunscreen last, thinking it should be closest to the sun, but it should really be put on first [before makeup] or you don’t get the full SPF protection. With a BB cream you don't make that type of mistakes. So now the question is... would you be willing to switch from your daily routine to a simpler way using a BB cream?

Obviamente en Estados Unidos casi toda terminología se abrevia, así que cuando oí por primera vez la palabra BB Cream para referirse a un nuevo tipo de crema facial, no tenia ni idea de a que se estaban refiriendo. Lo cierto es que es una crema multiuso que se originó en Alemania en los años 60 y que se popularizó en Asia recientemente. Si como mujeres, a veces, el proceso de darnos nuestras cremas no lo hacemos bien, por ejemplo poniendo la crema solar al final pensando que así va a estar mas cerca del sol y vamos a estar mas protegidas, cuando debería de ser lo primero que nos ponemos, ahora podemos omitir esos errores simplemente usando una crema BB. (Bálsamo para las manchas - traducción literal). Así que mi pregunta es... estarás dispuesta a hacer el cambio?
