When it comes to beauty goals, the pursuit of a smooth, flawless, yet natural-looking complexion will never end—but luckily for all of us, full-coverage foundations aren’t the only choice for faking it when your skin won’t cooperate. Colour correction (CC) cream is a skincare-makeup combination that offers coverage while also addressing specific skin issues.

Difference between CC cream and BB cream?

CC stands for “colour correcting” and claims to even out skin imperfections, flaws, and discolouration. (BB is an abbreviation for “beauty or blemish” balm, and BB cream is a lighter, skin-friendly alternative to foundation.) They are somewhat heavier than BB creams and are intended to reduce redness, discolouration, and symptoms of ageing. They can also cover up areas of your skin with uneven texture, such as scars or acne marks.
