Primers are heaven sent for those with oily skin and if you don’t have one yet in your vanity, you’re missing out.
Primers can help create a smoother canvas by filling in pores and evening skin texture. They can also help make fine lines and wrinkles a lot less noticeable.
Take note, however, that not all primers can do the same thing. Similar with foundations and other makeup products, you have to find one that can match your skin type.
There are primers that are formulated to control oil so you’ll have to blot less throughout the day. Some are formulated to leave a matte finish to make your skin less oily.
You don’t necessarily have to invest in expensive primers. There are cheap and affordable options that can work as well as their high-end counter parts.
In choosing the best drugstore primer for oily skin, just pay attention to the ingredients. It should be oil-free, noncomedogenic and fragrance-free.
