Hey Guys!
It’s Sunday already and that means it’s time for Sunday Mood. In this post we will talk about powder and BB/CC creams. Which of them is good for our skin and why? Let’s find out!
Face powders have been used from ancient times. Their effect on the skin has changed with the fashions of the time and the materials available. Modern face powders are still an essential part of a woman’s make-up. Powder was used to cover blemishes like sunburn, spots and freckles. Perspiration and oily secretions could also be rectified with powder, making it useful in places where summers were warmer and women were more likely to ‘glow’. However, powders are injurious whether they be chemically pure or not. They close up the pores of the face and destroy the natural functions of the skin. If woman use powder for any length of time her face becomes hard and her skin scaly. This all means that your skin “can’t breathe”. We all know this but why we keep putting that on our face? Because today’s brands and beauty houses claims that if we use their powder everything will be okay. Advertising says: “At all events the proper use of powder is beneficial, it lightly covers and unifies a complexion, hiding the ravages of time, improving even the beautiful face.”* Personally, while I was using powder I had many problems with acnes. There’ll always be that one or two on my face and I couldn’t get rid of them.
On the other side, today you can use BB/CC creams. Firstly we need to know difference between these two. BB (Beauty Balm) Creams are from Asia and they’re formulated to be all-in-one moisturizer, primer, sunscreen, anti-aging treatment and foundation. CC (Color Correcting) Cream is also from Asia and it have the same role as the BB cream except this one is a bit thinner. So both of them reduces the appearance of wrinkles, skin with them feels firmer, it evens tone and boosts glow, you have a 24h Hydration and it has a UV Protection. By now you can see which of two that we’re comparing in this post is better. But what happens with skin while you use BB/CC cream? Well, it doesn’t close up your pores and your skin can breathe. You won’t need any creme or glycerin to fresh your skin and open your pores. Personally saying, whenever I use BB/CC cream I have a feeling that I din’t applied anything. It’s not heavy and I don’t have problem with acnes anymore. I use these cremes and I fully recommend them**

Ćao ljudi!
Već je nedelja i to znači da je vreme za Sunday Mood. U ovoj objavi pričaćemo o puderu i BB/CC kremama. Ko od njih je dobar za nasu kožu i zašto? Hajde da saznamo!
Puderi se koriste od drevnih vremena. Njihov efekat na kožu menjao se modama tog doba ili materijalima koji su bili dostupni. I dan danas puder je nezaostavni deo ženske šminke. Puder se koristio da bi prekrio nedostatke kao opekline od sunca, razne tačkice i pege. Znojenje i masni sekreti su se takođe mogli ispraviti sa puderom i to je bilo jako korisno za žene koje su živele ili bile na mestima gde je jako toplo jer su tako manje “sijale”. Puder je veoma štetan, bio on napravljen od hemikalija ili ne. Oni zatvaraju pore i uništavaju osnovnu funkciju kože. Ako žena koristi puder, bez obzira na dužinu vremena korišćenja, njeno lice postaje črvšće, a koža prekrivena ljuspicama. Sve ovo nas dovodi do zaključka da koža ispod pudera ne može da “diše”. Skoro svi mi to znamo, ali zašto onda nastavljamo da nanosimo puder? Zato što danas razni brendovi i kuće koje proizvode kozmetiku uz pomoć reklama nas ubeđuju ako budemo koristili njihov puder sve će biti u redu sa našom kožom. Jedna reklama kaže: “U svakom slučaju, kada se puder pravilno koristi on je delotvoran, pokriva nedostatke i ujedinjuje ten, sakriva razaranja vremena i poboljšava čak i lepo lice”.* Sa lične perspektive, dok sam koristila puder imala sam probleme sa aknama. Uvek bi bila jedna ili dve prisutne i nikako ih se nisam mogla rešiti.
Sa druge strane, danas možete koristiti i BB/CC kreme. Prvo moramo znati razliku između njih. BB (Beauty Balm) kreme su iz Azije i napravljene su da nam posluže kao osveživač, prajmer, krema za sunce, tretman protiv starenja i osnova. CC (Color Correcting) kreme su takođe iz Azije, napravljene da služe isto kao i BB kreme, samo što su one malo tanje. Znači, obe pokrivaju bore, imate osećaj kao da je koža čvršća, izjednačava ton i povećava sjaj, daje hidrataciju koja traje 24h i ima UV zaštitu. Mislim da već shvatate ko od ova dva proizvoda koja upoređujemo u ovoj objavi je bolji. Ali, šta se dešava sa kožom dok se koristi BB/CC krema? Definitivno ne zatvara tvoje pore i koža može da “diše”. Tako da glicerin ili razne kreme neće biti potrebni nakon skidanja BB/CC kreme (potrebni su kod pudera da bi osvežili i oporavili kožu). Lično govoreći, kada koristim BB/CC kremu imam osećaj kao da ništa nisam nanela na svoje lice. Nisu teške i nemam više problema sa aknama. Koristim ove kreme i u potpunosti ih preporučujem!**
