Biotherm's International General Manager, Patrick Kullenberg described Leighton as "a contemporary icon, a young star whose natural talent, energy and beauty, have made her the face of a generation". "She’s the perfect expression of Biotherm skincare’s essential values: fresh modernity and natural beauty. She was an obvious choice to represent our brand," he says.
Leighton will make her debut with the brand's next face care campaign that is set to launch early next year. And with her enviable beauty and fresh-looking skin, we couldn't think of a better fit.
Alphabet creams continue world domination with the newest double letter on the block, DD. It stands for a few things — just like BB and CC, it's open for personal or brand interpretation — but daily defense, dymanic do-all and dermatologically defining are three that have been floating around. Do you need one? Well that all depends on what you're trying to address.
BB cream is still your go-to for a primer-based tint, CC for reducing redness, pigmentation and anti-ageing; and DD for all of the above. The anti-ageing factor is even higher than CC so if you're trying to reduce those sneaky fine lines, you'll love it. We plucked out our favourite BB creams and gave you CC options on every budget, but now there's so many more alphabet creams on shelves you need to know about. Here's the best of the rest.
Fast-forward to your wedding day but more precisely, the morning of. After a not-so-great sleep and dealing with any last minute dramas, your skin might need a little TLC. Actually, even if you think it doesn't, it does! If you want to look plump and glowing, you'll need to hydrate (and relax). Facial cloth masks are perfect for brides because you generally need to leave them on for 20 or so minutes, which gives you an excuse to get horizontal and take some deep breaths. Cleanse and tone, then apply one of these puppies. . .
Yes we know, BB creams are so yesterday, right? Wrong! While CC creams have taken some of the skin perfecting limelight, there's still a very big place in your beauty cupboard for a BB. Always remember that BB stands for blemish (or beauty balm), and CC stands for colour correcting (or colour control). So if you suffer from breakouts or large pores, BB cream is still your go-to. If it's redness, fine lines and scarring you want to address, try a CC. Big brands are constantly improving their formulas and bringing you new BB creams to smooth and correct, and we've got 10 newbies we think you'll want to try.
Winter beauty doesn't just call for super doses of hydration and barely-there spray tans, it also calls for whitening and brightening.

We've rounded up our current favourites. You know, the ones that actually work.

There's been quite a bit of hype surrounding BB creams of late, and you know what? It's all true! Just to get you up to speed, BB stands for blemish balm — and was founded by German dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek over 50 years ago. Its purpose was as a post-operative (and laser) cream, something that was not only restorative with anti-inflammatory agents, but gave some light coverage as well. These days, it is more commonly used as an option to a tinted moisturiser. Hugely popular in South Korea in the '80s, you'll often hear Korean women refer to as their "secret cream" — namely actresses. Oh how we love a beauty secret! Since then, lots of companies have released their own versions of the magic cream, so here's a handful of options on every budget.
