CC Creams To Wear Right Now

cc creams you need to wear right now. summer makeup trends. cc creams for all skin types.

In the summer I tend to put my heavy foundations on the back burner to give my skin a proper rest. After all, June begins some of the hottest days on record here in Florida. My skin needs to stay hydrated and sweat-proof for long hours spent outdoors. My everyday makeup routine includes a lightweight CC Cream instead of a thick liquid foundation. 

What is a CC Cream?

A CC Cream is a great tool to achieve a "no makeup, makeup" look in seconds. CC stands for "color correction" which means its perfect for smoothing out your skin tone. As for my skin type, I still have a lot of discoloration and redness from my old teenage days with a lot of acne. I use CC creams to cover up my redness and blotchiness first thing in the morning during the summer.

CC creams also have a buildable formula. Although it's not as high coverage as BB creams, a CC cream can still provide you with a decent amount of light coverage all over your face. Most CC creams on the market have a light, whipped texture that applies easily with a beauty blender or just a few fingers. CC creams include a power ingredient called lycopene to help with hyperpigmentation issues and promote radiance.

Supergoop! CC Cream Daily Correct Broad Spectrum SPF 35+ 

One of the outstanding CC creams that I must point out is from Supergoop! This brand impresses me year after year with its new product releases. I first heard of Supergoop! a few years ago when I was looking for new sunscreens. The brand sent me a complimentary PR package filled with goodies and I became addicted to the Supergoop! Defense Refresh SPF 50 Rosemary Setting Mist. The setting mist can be applied on top of makeup and I would throw the travel size version inside my boating bag each time I set sail to add more SPF to my face. 

The CC Cream Daily Correct formula has more coverage than a tinted moisturizer. This corrective solution has the right amount of UVA and UVB blocking sun protection capabilities, too. Even if you have dry or acne-prone skin, I recommend this CC cream. The formula is gentle enough to treat all skin types because it has top-rated ingredients that won't clog your pores or make you feel greasy whatsoever!

Supergoop! CC Cream Daily Correct is made without these harsh ingredients: Sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, triclocarban.

It Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+

Another "holy grail" CC Cream is from the brand It Cosmetics. I wear the shade Fair all year round. With over 3,000 reviews on Sephora.com, this CC Cream has 4/5 stars! The color-correcting formula has won numerous awards and continues to hold a top spot in Allure magazine as one of the best liquid foundations on the market. 

No more smudges. No more dry patches. No more dark circles. This popular It Cosmetics CC cream is loaded with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid to lock in moisture. The product is easy to apply with your fingers or by smoothing out with a brush. If you are on the hunt for a CC cream to make your skin appear brighter and more awake, this also does the trick.
