If you’re reading this, you a) have dry skin b) you’re ready to embrace skin minimalism, or c) because you’re already a ‘clean girl’ searching for the next product that will keep your skin looking like your skin. Either way, you’re going to find exactly what you’re looking for.
CC creams AKA colour correcting creams sit somewhere between tinted moisturiser, foundation, and BB creams (beauty balms), but they’re way smarter. CC creams are designed to target discolouration, uneven skin tone, blemishes and redness caused by dry skin, acne scars, or rosacea, all while creating an even, foundation-like finish. Basically, CC creams are a beauty match made in heaven for dry skin. Keep scrolling to meet the best CC cream formulas for dry skin.
