I am a girl and have been using bb creams for the past 3 years. BB creams have just recently entered the American market, but they've been around in Korea for yeeeaars. I personally think the korean brands are much better, but they are harder to find/purchase. I can assure you that men wearing bb creams is totally normal, for guys in korea at least. They wear it like lotion. I definitely think the right bb cream will be the least likely to exacerbate your acne when compared to heavier foundations/powders. You can read up on the benefits of bb creams, but basically they include a whole lot of "good things" for your skin like spf protection, brightening elements for scars, moisturizer, acne-fighting medication, etc. My dermatologist has recently been selling the bb cream i've been using for years, which tells me its truly dermatologist-approved! I use a korean brand called Dr G (not Dr Jart).
BB creams, however, do not offer as full of a coverage as a heavier liquid/cream foundation would. This may be something that you're looking for as you dont want something too noticeable. The coverage is somewhere between a tinted moisturizer and a liquid foundation. Hope that helps and good luck!
