What are CC Creams?

CC creams are also known as color control cream or color correcting cream. These are primarily meant to give you a better complexion and a youthful glow to your skin by reducing dark spots, hiding skin blemishes. They help to moisturize your skin and prevent discoloration of the skin. The cc creams target hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines.

How CC Creams are different than BB Creams?

BB creams stand for beauty balm cream or blemish balm cream. This is seen as a makeup product as it gives you an all in one cream- primer, foundation, concealer, sunscreen and serum. These were originally developed in Germany and then became famous in Asian Countries. Now they have moved on to US and European countries too.  CC creams were first of all developed in Korea in order to address the need of skin discoloration. 

These are said to be different than bb creams because cc creams are known to be lighter in texture and even provide a more natural coverage to your skin than bb creams. BB creams on the other hand are like a bit of tinted moisturizer. Basically, it can be said that cc creams contain all the benefits of bb creams but they also have added nourishing ingredients  which give a more subtle coverage to your skin. CC creams blends more finely into your skin than bb creams and appears less oily too.

Features of BB creams include:

  • Provides a natural looking makeup

  • Hides away skin blemishes and pigmentation

  • Contains healing properties.

  • Act as a moisturizer for your skin.

  • Helps in reducing shine on the skin.

  • Gives a youthful glow to the skin.

Which one to choose- BB creams or CC creams?

Well, of course you might by now be a bit puzzled as to what will work the best for you, should go for bb creams and ignore the cc creams or rather leave bb creams and move on with cc creams. Isn’t?

In my opinion, if you have fair and normal skin tone then you should go ahead with bb creams but if you have skin discoloration and want to give an extra coverage to your skin tone, then cc creams will do the best for you. These are good for those with acne prone skin. CC creams are more of a skin care product than a makeup product. BB creams are said to be more preventive while CC creams are more corrective.
