Primer creates a protective barrier over the skin, as well as seals in and protects any treatment products used during your daily skincare regimen, also it gives an effect of a glowy skin because it minimizes pores, it helps of getting a dewy finish look, it reduces redness and it acts like a sponge to absorb excess oils so skin stays shine-free and fresh looking all day (oil controler). Since it has all these benefits & it is a new product in the market, it is a little bit pricy & sometimes inavailable in some countries ( like mine) so that's why I came up with the idea of doing it myself at home with ingredients that I am aware of & which we all have in our vanity . So grab an empty container and these simple ingredients & start your magic :
1) Moisturizer :
Rather than putting a serum & moisturizer before makeup , what if we used it as an ingredient to do our own inexpensive primer ? Grab your favorite moisturizer or face lotion , add the amount that your skin need into a container or a spray bottle ( I used 2 tablespoons ) .
2) SPF cream :
Add an SPF cream to the container & mix it well ( use SPF 15 to 50 ). I used SPF 8 because I already added a bb cream that contains SPF 30 so I had just added that extra protection .
3) Sweet almond oil or Vitamin E :
Since I didn't have vitamine E capsulles I used 2 or 3 drops of sweet almond oil or argan oil ( or oils that contain vitamine E in it ) . Vitamine E is known for moinsture & radiation.
4) Foundation or powder :
(It's optional) If you want to add an extra coverage when you apply your foundation & for your primer to be as a tinted moisturizer , add a few drops of your foundation or a little bit of powder ( to have the matte finish) to your mixture.
Final results :
Every girl dreams about having the perfect healthy looking skin by buying expensive skin care products , having surgeries , getting injections ...
