CC Cream: The A's, B's and CC's of beauty
It's time for a beauty upgrade. Just as you've wrapped your head, and hands, around the concept of BB cream, or beauty balm, the next generation of products is on the market. Color control cream, or CC cream, is the new 'version' of BB cream, designed to serve up all the skin-care benefits of a beauty balm with additional coverage and color correction.
CC creams typically features a generous SPF rating, as well as ingredients to nourish skin, paired with increased abilities to even skin tone, cover flaws and provide more coverage without oiliness. Yup, CC cream is beauty 3.0. But you'll need to do a bit of wrangling to get one of these hard to-find creams into your beauty bag.
