Our first order of business is to provide you with the definition of a CC Cream. In short, it means, "color correction cream." CC cream has grown in popularity as more people discover the amazing benefits of this powerful beauty option.
A quality CC cream is an all-in-one formula that combines anti-aging and moisturizing properties to deliver effortless coverage with an airbrushed finish.
CC creams are light in their formulation and mask complexion issues, provide hydration, and offer anti-aging benefits. Literally, what more could you ask for?
Here we have 5 tips when implementing a CC cream, for the best possible results:
- CC creams should not replace your daily moisturizer.
Even though they provide good hydration, it is still important to begin with a moisturizer before applying. Then this sheer, color-correcting formula that you put on top will provide you with a look of radiance.
- Be sure to check the SPF. You shouldn't rely on your CC cream for sun protection.
- Test to make sure you're getting the coverage you want.
The beauty of the CC cream is that you can build the coverage. You can have very little coverage or more moderate coverage, depending on how heavy-handed you apply the product. Practice applying it a few different ways to find the perfect balance for you.
You can also use less for daytime (apply one layer in the morning), and more for an evening out on the town (applying another layer later in the day). It's all up to you, and that is one of the best features of a CC cream!
- Make sure the color matches your skin tone.
CC creams typically come in a smaller range of shades than foundations do, because the sheer color makes each shade more compatible for more people. Whether you have a fair-light, light-medium or medium-deep complexion, there is a good chance that your CC cream will meet your needs. Most people are very satisfied with how well it blends with their skin tone and compliment it for its ability to provide natural-looking coverage.
- Don't forget to keep up your daily anti-aging regimen nightly.
CC creams are terrific supplements to enrich your favorite anti-aging products already in your routine. They also come in compacts, so you can start off your day—and end your day—with great skincare, and apply your CC cream on the go, during the hustle and bustle of your day.
