Best Makeup Primer For Oily Skin

March 31, 2017

To keep makeup looking beautiful, not oily, and to keep makeup from sliding off during the day, it helps to use a makeup primer under your foundation. There are many makeup primers for oily skin that you can buy in the drug store or department store, and even online. However, many of these primers aren’t made with natural ingredients. So, they could keep your makeup looking great, but they might be causing damage to your skin at the same time.

The best makeup primer for oily skin is an all-natural makeup primer, and it’s a primer that can pull double duty as a skin aid. Timeless Skin Care recommends that you use a hyaluronic acid serum as a makeup primer, applied sparingly over a hyaluronic acid cream.

What Does a Makeup Primer Do?

A good makeup primer will fill in pores, smooth out lines and wrinkles, and give you a soft canvas that you can apply makeup to. Good makeup primers even out skin tone, absorb extra oil, and ensure that your makeup looks fresh for longer – especially in warm months.

Why Hyaluronic Acid Serum as a Makeup Primer?

Hyaluronic acid serum is perfect for use as a makeup primer because it promotes smooth skin. It’s a natural ingredient that hydrates the skin, plumping it up and removing lines and wrinkles, and it hydrates without you having to use oily or greasy creams. When you apply hyaluronic acid serum over a hyaluronic acid cream, you have a perfect base for applying foundation.

The best makeup primer for oily skin doesn’t have to be something extremely drying. In fact, it shouldn’t be. Even though our hyaluronic acid serum is oil based, it’s a natural and gentle oil that’s good for oily skin – as it balances moisture levels in cells so that skin doesn’t dry out. Dry skin can often produce excess oils to try to compensate for low moisture, which can lead to very oily skin.

Timeless Skin Care carries hyaluronic acid serum that you can use as a makeup primer, and we sell other natural skin care products for oily skin as well. You can view some of our hydrating and oil-controlling serums and creams in our Timeless Skin Care shop.
