If you know your alphabet and the wonders of a good BB cream, get ready for the next letter in the ABC’s of beauty products: CC!
CC creams are said to be supercharged versions of BB creams, and have been circling Asia’s beauty market under the same brands that brought us the BB craze. The double C stands for “color correction” or “color control” because they are more focused on improving your skin’s color and tone. Basically, CC creams will provide all the coverage and benefits of a BB, with the added bonus of improving discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, and retaining all those benefits longer…
CC creams also have unique ingredients that aren’t found in BBs. For example, White and Green Tea extracts, natural vitamins, and Macadamia Nut Oil that are present in CC creams make these formulas rich in antioxidants that boost the immunity of skin cells and prevent pigmentation. Tea extracts especially protect the skin from environmental factors that could cause damage or premature aging, too. CC creams also have a lighter texture and feel, so they’re going to be more suitable for oilier skin types.
If CC creams are as good as they sound, I’m excited for them to reach across the globe!
