A Primer for Moisturizing Your Skin

A Primer for Moisturizing Your Skin

Whether you’re a full-coverage fan or a bearer of natural skin, textural issues and dryness can keep you from enjoying a flawless finish. Plenty of skin care treatments and professional services can keep your skin looking more youthful than its true age, but those same concerns can reappear gradually between professional services.

Jessica Simone, APRN, is a skin care guru and offers a variety of customizable facials at Harmony Med Spa in Sarasota, Florida. Among the options are the relaxing Signature facial, the exfoliating LUX facial, and a facial just for teens. Harmony Med Spa also offers add-ons like microdermabrasion and collagen masks as a finishing touch. 

A facial can reset your skin so it’s nice and smooth with minimal texture and discoloration. After your custom facial, you may or may not feel inclined to cover your skin with makeup products. Jessica can help you develop and perfect your self-grooming routine with quality skin care products you can trust. Using professional-grade products, you can enjoy the results of facials and other luxury aesthetic services for as long as possible. 

Smooth your skin with a quality primer

A makeup primer is a product that you apply to your skin after cleansing and before applying your foundation and concealer. It acts as a base for your makeup to give you a smoother finish. It fills in your pores and can even absorb excess oil. Primer also makes your makeup last so you don’t have to worry about it thinning or smearing off toward the end of your workday or an evening on the town.

Large facial pores are a major concern among people who wear makeup as their texture is difficult to conceal using makeup products alone. You might see large pores peeking through your completed makeup look because of high oil production and increased skin laxity around your pores. 

Dry and flaky skin is another textural concern that a quality primer can smooth. Moisturizing primers hydrate your skin while making it into a smooth base for your concealer and foundation. Moisturization is a high priority for many skin enthusiasts in search of the right primer. 

How primer moisturizes your skin

Excessive oil production is a surprisingly texturizing skin feature. If your sebaceous glands produce a lot of oil, your pores look wide and you might experience acne and acne scarring. 

Believe it or not, many primers lend to a smooth finish because they reduce your skin’s production of oil. They smooth your skin without giving it a greasy or shiny finish even when it’s hot outside. 

You might notice that your skin feels sticky shortly after you apply your primer. This helps your primer grip onto the makeup that goes over it. Primers also temporarily fill in large pores and other divots because many of them contain silicone as a primary ingredient. Silicone fills the shape of a gaping pore to even out your skin’s texture, which makes it look like you have a real-life social media filter overlaying your skin.
