Suffering from oily skin often feels like the ultimate complexion affliction, what with makeup running and cracking off, visible pores, erupting blemishes, etc. But, with the right primer, like Proactiv Smoothing Primer, even those with the oiliest face can have a matte complexion. It glides on with a gel consistency that minimizes imperfections, then morphs into a powder as it dries to absorb excess oil. Plus, its non-comedogenic formula won’t clog pores or cause breakouts.
Tell us: Do you use a primer? If so, why, and what’s your favorite?
