Real Talk: Are DD Creams Necessary?
A, B, C, D...
You know all about BB creams. And CC creams, you're an old pro. But the next in line in the alphabet beauty products category is one you might not be as familiar with. In this week's beauty dictionary, we're breaking down DD creams.
The word: DD cream
Also known as: Daily defense cream or dynamic do-it-all (varies)
What it does: Originally, DD creams were popular overseas to soothe dry areas such as feet, knees, and elbows. But, here they're known for their anti-aging benefits. Just as a BB and CC cream fights to protect skin, give coverage, and even out skin tone, a DD cream does all of the above with the benefit of anti-aging. Plus, many times DD creams contain SPF so you can use solo as a daily sunscreen.
To see the most benefits, use daily to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while prepping skin for makeup. It should be noted that because a DD cream has many similar qualities and benefits of a BB and CC cream, you really don't need to stock up on all. Pick which alphabet cream is best for you and stick with it!
Never worry about shade matching with this DD cream thanks to a self-adjusting white sapphire complex that enhances the unique shade of each skin tone. Plus, with a built in SPF 30 you can really wear it every day for max sun protection.
In addition to sun protection, this DD cream also offers intense anti-aging and skin healing ingredients to reduce the visible effects of inflammation and signs of stress.
