Why BB, CC, and DD creams are the best alternatives for foundation.

You may have been using these creams for a long time, but do you know the main difference between them? All three creams have a delicate texture and are somewhat similar to a regular foundation. But how did these creams transform the beauty world and how did they manage to oust the generic foundation from the vast market of beauty?

BB creams first appeared in Korea, presenting as an alternative to almost all existing creams that were on the market. It moisturises, protects and nourishes the skin, but no BB cream can replace the quality creams produced specifically for this.  

The main advantage of using a BB cream is its ability to even out your skin complexion without creating the thick layer of makeup as a foundation would. It does not weigh down on your skin; it is practically invisible to the eye; and it is able to protect the skin from ultraviolet rays coming from the sun.

BB cream not only masks your skin's imperfections, but it also cares for it, making your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. If you have a combination type skin or oily skin, often prone to breakouts, try Belita's Pure Green BB cream. Acnacidol, green tea and cactus extract neutralises the oily sheen on your skin, hides imperfections and creates a light matte effect to your skin. Green tea and cactus extract helps to tighten your pores, soothe skin and protect it from photoaging (the changes to your skin that occur when effected by UV rays). Acnacidol improves the function of the sebaceous glands and prevents the spread of bacteria that are primarily responsible for acne and blemishes.

For those with normal to oily skin, take a look at the BB cream "Matte Skin Expert". Thanks to a special complex of active ingredients, the cream instantly moisturises the skin, cleanses the pores and maintains optimal hydro balance. After applying the cream, you can safely apply your makeup and be sure that your skin is effectively protected from the harmful effects of the sun's rays and free radicals.

You may also want to try Belita's Super Moisturising Tinted BB Cream. It will provide deep hydration to your skin, increasing its elasticity and visibly even out your tone of skin. With a delicate and light texture, the cream covers your skin with a silk-like veil, giving it a healthy glow.

CC cream is a base for your makeup that can also correct complexion. However, no matter how the cream hides redness, pigmentation, spider veins and other skin defects, it will not replace either your concealer or other colour correcting products. BB cream is the best substitute for foundation, while CC cream works as a tinted corrective product. It works great for all skin types, though if your skin is too dry or prone to flakiness, try mixing your CC cream with a daytime moisturiser that you are already familiar with.

CC Cream, "Radiance of Perfection" 10 in 1, provides perfect tonal coverage, caring for the skin, giving it even radiance and smoothness. Goat milk, included in the cream's formula, smooths wrinkles, rejuvenates, nourishes and moisturises the skin, making it soft and smooth.

If you are searching for a product which further eliminates fine wrinkles, try Belita CC Face Lifting Cream. Thanks to ultra-concentrated hyaluronic acid and reflective particles, the cream smooths wrinkles, restores the intercellular volume of the skin, corrects the complexion and restores radiance of the skin.


DD cream, unlike its predecessors, is a skin care product. It is designed to protect the skin from sun damage and negative effects of the environment, and also helps to restore the lipid barrier at the skin's surface. A DD cream also tones the skin, but it only slightly corrects its shade, exclusive of masking blemishes and imperfections of  the skin which the other creams mentioned are able to correct.

Most DD creams are able to prevent the appearance of new wrinkles, which is their main anti-aging affect. In a good DD cream, you will certainly see antioxidants and SPF, which provides certified skin protection.

If you haven't found your perfect DD cream yet or didn't know it existed at all, try NanoMezo Complex Anti-Aging DD Sunscreen. The active ingredients of the cream will act as a powerful protection to your skin, moisturising it, and reducing the appearance of pores and fine lines.

Do you use BB, CC or DD creams? Are you sure they will replace all your skincare products? Be careful. As much as these creams take care of your skin, they will never be able to replace basic skin care products. This becomes quite noticeable after some time when using exclusively BB, CC and DD creams. Remember, they can do a lot, but they can't do everything. Continue to apply day and night moisturisers and nourishing creams along with foundations. Only this time, your skin will be perfectly healthy and beautiful.
