Which CC Cream is Right For Me?

Which CC Cream is Right For Me?

Alphabet Beauty is becoming increasingly popular. BB (Beauty Balm), CC (Colour Correction), DD (Double Duty) and even EE Creams (welcome to an “Even Effect” Skintone from Estée Lauder) are crazes in the beauty industry. However, because there is a wide range of products out there, it can be tricky deciding which one is right for you.

Coming into Spring, the weather is changing and days can go from being cold to warm. Our skin therefore can suffer from redness, sensitivity and imperfections. The CC Cream is the best choice to tackle these problems as its colour correcting properties will help to minimise signs of discolouration and leave you with an even and radiant complexion.

What are CC Creams?

Infused with moisturising ingredients, CC Creams will give your skin a burst of hydration. Unlike BB Creams, they actually contain colour correcting technology, which helps to tackle signs of redness, pigmentation and imperfections, to leave you with an even skintone. Although they don’t have full coverage formulations, they do help to tone down blemishes and hyper-redness, without feeling heavy or sticky on the skin. They are a great choice when transitioning into Spring and are great for the Summer months as a lot of them contain SPF.

What is the Best CC Cream for my Concern?

There a lot of CC Creams to choose from depending on your skin type and environment. Choosing one that is going to offer you the most skincare benefits will not only ensure that your complexion looks even and radiant, but also that it is protected and healthy.
