If you don’t already own a primer, we suggest you get one today! Primers are those magic wands that help your skin look flawless and also keep imperfections well hidden all through the day. It is the #1 reason behind that smooth, poreless skin that we all covet.
Picking a primer can be a tricky task as the wrong primer can wreak havoc on your skin. We’re here to help you understand what a primer looks like, what it does and which one will work best with your skin type...
People with oily need to be careful about the primers they pick. Ensure that you use a lightweight, silicone-based primer that specifically mentions that it is non-comedogenic. Since these primers have a thicker consistency, they help even out the skin tone by covering any acne scars and large pores. This protective layer also prevents your skin from environmental stressors.
For woman with dry skin, it is essential that you choose a primer with a creamy or oily texture. A primer with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, rosehip oil, almond oil and vitamin C help infuse some much-needed moisture into the skin and also helps your foundation blend beautifully. A primer with a pearly finish gives your skin a nice, dewy glow.
Normal or combination skin
If you have normal or combination skin, you’re very lucky, as most types of primers work for you. Use primers that are rich in antioxidants and vitamins to maintain the health of your skin. This will ensure that your skin looks extremely clear and glowing all through the day.
A good primer tends to fill in lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a beautiful dewy effect. Always look for primer that contains skin-nourishing and hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, AHA’s and retinol for maximum anti-ageing benefits.
