Tinted CC cream just might be the hero product your skincare routine has been missing.
In case you’ve entirely missed the CC cream boat, they are lightweight and skin-clearing alternatives to wearing foundation. Apply them to clean skin for a perfected complexion–without having to pile on the makeup.
And best of all they can be anti-aging, too. Add a little SPF to the mix and your skin has seriously never looked better. Are you convinced yet?
We consulted with leading dermatologists to discover the #1 CC cream they recommends to clients. Here are their picks, as well as the top rated products from Target, Sephora, Amazon and more:
SHISEIDO Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 43
"This is a great one," Dr. Debra Jaliman, board-certified NYC dermatologist, Assistant Professor of Dermatology Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and author of the book, “Skin Rules: Trade Secrets from a Top New York Dermatologist," (St. Martin’s Press) tells us. "It’s hydrating and oil-free." Nice! Dr. Jaliman explains that it's sheer moisture for your skin, contains hydrating ingredients such as glycerin and Xylitol as well as sunscreen protection, and that it's made with a special technology that protects cells and DNA. More than a triple threat!
IT COSMETICS Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+
"I usually recommend multifunctional products that contain sun protection, anti-aging & pigment correction. One example is the CC cream by It cosmetics," Dr. Suzanne Friedler, board-certified dermatologist with Advanced Dermatology PC and Clinical Instructor of Dermatology, Mt Sinai Medical Center tells us. "It combines SPF 50 with peptides, vitamins & hyaluronic acid for anti-aging & improved hydration of the skin."
"IT Cosmetics CC Cream is my favorite (I use it!)," Dr. Francesca J. Fusco, MD agrees. "It covers, camouflages, moisturizes and provides SPF with a most natural finish."
This popular cream from Winky Lux is infused with tea and comes in pretty pink packaging (not that that matters--but doesn't it really?).
