Since this stressed-out scribe is, now, about the boo-boo and it's dry Winter, this scribe has discovered and tried makeup foundation that heals as it conceals, with benefits.
For post-operation plastic surgery patients, out came the BB cream, a heavy makeup foundation that heals laser burns and chemical peels as it disguises the exfoliating, peel scars while healing and nourishing the new skin.
From BB cream, came the CC Cream, a lighter but no less effective, color-correcting cream that adjusts to matching your surrounding complexion shade as it heals and nourishes the skin.
With the 2018 Winter Olympics arriving soon, those Winter athletes need these foundations for protection and nourishment for photo ops.
With a boo-boo during a dry, blistering cold Winter, this scribe tested Erborian CC Crème, Alastin Hydra Tint Sunscreen SPF 36, and Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass CC Treatment SPF 30. Yes, they're thick enough to be protective and moisturizing but none of them clog pores.
Erborian CC Crème High Definition Radiance Face Cream Skin Perfector is a high-definition skin-perfecting cream with two color-matching shades for luminous, soft-looking skin and a more even complexion.
The color-matching pigments help create a seamless match to a wide range of skin tones. Broad-spectrum SPF 25 helps to protect skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays, and the finished product is a complexion feeling soft with a non-oily yet radiant finish.
Moisturizing but lightweight, all physical, broad-spectrum sunscreen that provides daily protection from damaging UVA/UVB rays. The formulation is rich in antioxidants that shield against pollution induced damage, ingredients that improve skin hydration and has a natural hint of color compatible with all skin types.

If you're feeling really hurt and damaged, think of this...whenever a Bengal tiger gets into a fight and gets injured, it rolls and rubs its wounds into Centella Asiatica Leaft. The essence or sap released from rubbing it, heals the tiger's wounds and scar. This is how it became known as "Tiger Grass."
Cicapair™ Collection is inspired by the true legend of Asian Tigers, rolling in Centella Asiatica to heal their battle wounds. Also known as tiger grass, its medicinal use has been recognized for centuries. For generations, this active ingredient has also been recognized as a recovery system to help support wounded skin exhibiting inflammation, redness, or blemishes.
For ages, Chinese herbal medicine has used Tiger Grass in skin aliments.
Dr. Jart just made it more 21st-century, in it's latest CC or Color-Correcting Cream,
Dr. Jart Cicapair ™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30's grayish green cream in the jar, may appear off-putting.
However, it miraculously adjusts then matches to your surrounding complexion shade as it disguises your boo-boo, since it comes from foundation that heals and protects cosmetic/plastic surgery procedures.
A green-to-beige color-correcting treatment that corrects redness and helps protect skin from environmental aggressors.
Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment is the all-in-one treatment that includes a color-changing capsule within the formula to cover blemishes and restore the look of the skin's strength, health, and vitality. It provides SPF 30 protection from UV light, and it forms a dust barrier to protect the skin from the environment while enhancing the skin’s viability. It restores the strength of skin with the resurrection plants, houttuynia cordata and yarrow. It’s infused with sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium to help improve the skin’s moisture levels and restore fatigued skin for a healthy appearance.
If these BB and CC Creams and sunscreens can treat and heal dramatic cosmetic/plastic surgery procedures and scraps and boo-boos, imagine what they can do for the everyday people who wants to look attractive while it nourishes, as they jog and ski then run daily errands. Foundations with benefits.
