1. Dullness:

Light-diffusing ingredients are now in nearly every primer on the market. When you apply foundation on top of these variants, the result is a glow that looks like it’s coming from within. They’re also pumped full of moisturising ingredients like glycerine and hyaluronic to give a dewy, radiant finish to the skin and instantly conceal dark patches.

2. Acne:

Acne-prone skin can often be shiny and raw. Luckily, there are now a variety of mattifying options on offer, spiked with anti-ageing and zit-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid, antioxidants and AHA’s.

3. Dryness:

For long-lasting hydration, go for primers that contain oils and vitamins. Both help to create a barrier, so you don’t lose moisture during the day, as well as giving skin an unbeatable glow. These formulas also help to ensure your foundation doesn’t start pilling or flaking off throughout the day.

4. Pores:

Primers are devoted to making large pores look less noticeable and the formulas have really evolved, many are now oil-free, which prevents any clogging. Whether you opt for silicone-based or water-based formulas – both will blend well with your other products – they fill indentations on the skin, preventing make-up from penetrating further and congesting open pores.

5. Oiliness:

If you’re someone who suffers from naturally oily skin, a mattifying primer is a must. Most now contain blotting minerals and pore-filling polymers to soak up excess oil both temporarily and in the long run. Look to ones with bacteria-fighting ingredients like niacinamide and natural exfoliating acids for a smoother, refined complexion overall.
