Everything You Need To Know About Color Correcting Tanning
So you’re clued up on the benefits of CC cream for your complexion, but what does color correcting mean in the world of self-tan? Read on for our guide to color-correcting tanning, how it works and how to choose a color base, for your most bespoke tanning result yet.
What is CC tanning?
In the same way that skincare CC creams use colour-correcting technology to even out skin tone and compliment individual skin tones, CC tanning lets you choose a formula designed for your individual skin needs, undertones and desired results. Whether you want a golden finish that compliments your warm toned skin, or a cool ash base that works perfectly for paler skin tones, color correcting tan formulas allow you to make sure your skin finish is tailored to match your exact skin needs.
What should you consider when choosing a base color?
There’s no one-color-fits-all in the world of color correcting tanning! It’s all about a bespoke finish. The two main things to consider when choosing your base color are firstly – what is your natural skin tone and secondly – what kind of tan finish would you like? Do you like a warm golden glow, or do you prefer things cool and ashy?
