BB creams, or 'blemish balms', build on the idea of tinted moisturizer, featuring a formula that offers semi-sheer coverage along with skincare actives like antioxidants, peptides and SPF. CC, or 'color correcting' creams perform all the above while also addressing pigmentation concerns, such as redness and hyperpigmentation, with targeted ingredients. Both typically are heavier than inted moisturizer but lighter and dewer than foundation.
The process for applying BB and CC creams is the same — and extremely simple. Start by blending the product over your entire face using a circular motion. Then, dab concealer around your nostrils, on any red spots or blemishes and on the dark circles under your eyes. If you'd like, finish with a very light dusting of bronzer.
