February 14, 2019What Is The Best Natural Makeup Primer For A Flawless Application? A primer is an absolute staple in any beauty guru’s makeup routine and it really comes as no surprise! When formulated well, primers do the job of smoothing the complexion and perfectly prepping the skin for any liquid or powder foundation. This helps making the application of foundation so smooth, it simply glides onto your skin without leaving any dry or uneven patches behind. There’s just one problem... If you’re using a conventional chemically-laden primer then you aren’t giving your skin the love it deserves. In this article, we’ll let you in on just why those conventional primers need to go and why our nutrient-infused option will really help you to up your makeup game! What’s the trouble with conventional primers? Apart from the fact that you’re exposing your skin (and your health) to harmful toxins when you apply any non-natural product to your skin, there’s a specific ingredient in most primers that can seriously clog your pores... and no one’s got time for breakouts, are we right? The ingredient in question is called silicone. It creates a seal on the skin to keep bacteria out, but it also traps dirt in the pores that may be trying to make its way out. Don’t even think of sweating while wearing a silicone-based primer either, because your sweat will be trapped in your pores and may end up as an annoying blemish, no thanks! What’s a gal or guy to do? Before you panic, take some deep breaths, because we aren’t telling you to ditch the primer! Phew! Instead, switch out your pore-clogging primer for active botanical and plant-based oils infused primer that will leave your skin a beautiful clear, canvas for your makeup, without contributing to breakouts. How will our natural makeup primer help your skin? Just two of our key ingredients in our Aloe vera Skin Perfecting Primer include: Aloe - did you know that the aloe plant is called the miracle plant?
