CC Cream stands for Color Correcting Cream. What it does is focus on correcting discoloration and hyper pigmentation on the skin. The difference between a BB cream and a CC cream is that CC cream claims to be more moisturizing and will help to color correct the skin over time.
The CC Cream is high in Vitamin C which is a key component too treating discoloration in the skin. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage. Free radicals are the unstable molecules that causes skin to dry, flake, and wrinkle. CC cream is also come in tints that give amazing, lightweight, sheer coverage. You can wear it alone for a natural, fresh look or as a base for your foundation.
