Korea has pioneered some of the beauty industry’s most significant trends and innovations in recent years, from ten-step skincare routines to rubber masks. So it’s no surprise that Korean sunscreen is one of the most searched for terms in relation to sun care, as consumers look for products that will simultaneously protect skin and improve its appearance.
The benefits of Korean sunscreen
Those on the hunt for a product that blends the benefits of Korean sun care and skincare could try Cle’s CCC Cream (or Color Control & Change Cream). The lightweight cream is similar in texture to a tinted ‘beauty balm’ (BB) or ‘colour correcting’ (CC) cream, but with more intense, foundation-like coverage.
All of Cle’s products are made with non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free ingredients. Its CCC Cream is formulated with blueberry-derived vitamin C, coconut oil, and hyaluronic acid, a powerhouse serum alleviating dry skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines. It also contains niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3 that is used to increase the resiliency of the skin barrier, minimise the appearance of pores, and decrease redness caused by rosacea or acne.
As the weather gets warmer, and lockdowns ease around the world, many more of us will be spending more time outside. It also means many of us will return to wearing make-up. For those who find the prospect of both daunting, Cle’s CCC Cream is a welcome salve.
Hitting on the trend of ‘skinimalism’, the cream is an all-in-one product that eliminates the need to apply sunscreen and foundation separately. Its lightweight texture, yet high-pigment coverage, also makes it an ideal transition product for those weary of wearing foundation every day.
Beauty-wise, the Covid-era ushered in a fascination with skincare and decreased interest in cosmetics. As we move into a new period, products that combine practical skincare benefits with subtle cosmetic enhancements are bound to be a growing trend, just in time for sunnier days.
