Have you ever had that moment when you’re walking down the aisle of your favourite makeup store and you come across new abbreviations that don’t make sense? We’ve had them too. And after decoding almost a new one every week, the latest one thrown at us was the DD cream.
What does DD stand for?
DD stands for mostly a “Dynamic Do-All” but sometimes also “Dermatologically Defining” and “Daily Defense”. The names are different for different brands but the function essentially remains the same. This product is like a lovechild of BB and CC creams put together that provides more coverage and anti-ageing benefits. Find out more about BB and CC creams here.
So think about this, it offers all the features of BB cream including priming, moisturising, SPF and those of a CC cream like colour correction along with anti-ageing properties like reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Does it sound like a miracle product to you? It sure does to us!
Where do I get DD creams?
Brands like Julep, DERMAdoctor, Ofra and Pur Minerals offer DD creams that may be available online for you to purchase or at a Sephora store.
