Think you need full-coverage foundation for your acne-prone, sensitive skin? In fact, a CC or BB cream might be the better route to a clear, radiant complexion.
BB vs CC Cream
Originating in South Korea (one of the most cosmetics-obsessed countries in the world), the ‘BB’ in BB cream stands for ‘beauty balm’. Like a tinted moisturiser, a BB cream acts as a primer, moisturiser, and foundation. But BB cream delivers the added benefits of antioxidants to help protect skin against free radicals and ageing.
Next up, we have CC cream. The ‘CC’ stands for ‘colour-correcting’. CC creams are specially formulated to colour-correct skin issues like redness from acne and dark spots while adding a hint of radiance.
