* Guys are starting to use CC cream
* Corrects skin tone and covers any blemishes
* We found some super lightweight options that are great for guys

Many guys are under the impression that as a dude, there’s no way to cover up bad skin. Luckily, that’s no longer true.

More men are starting to use CC cream, a super-lightweight product that corrects skin tone while covering acne scars and zits. But don’t be mistaken: “cover up” doesn’t necessarily mean “makeup.” CC cream rubs onto the face in seconds like an aftershave or daily moisturizer, and it’s very faint once on. Plus, most CC creams also provide a light SPF and some moisturizer to protect your skin as well.
