As a dermatologist, one thing that I need to have every day is glowing skin.   While a solid skin care regimen is a crucial part (see previous post), the use of makeup to boost my baseline glow is helpful.  However, as a busy mom of two, my morning makeup routine usually consists of simultaneously applying makeup while balancing on one leg (my child has grabbed onto the other one) and hoping not to fall over onto the pile of shoes, clothes and jewelry that my daughter has quickly formed.

This is why I LOVE CC creams.  CC creams combine three key steps of my skincare routine – sunscreen,  color correcting foundation, and anti-aging ingredients –  into a single step!   I’m totally in love with Physicians Formula Super CC.  It goes on super lightweight but is pigmented enough to cover redness and brown spots.  After applying my CC cream, I swirl a shimmery blush on my cheeks (currently crushing on this one by Physicianss Formula, but my go-to choice is always NARS blush in Orgasm), and voila! Glowing skin in less than 5 minutes!
