Why You Need A Moisturizer Under Your Makeup

Why You Need A Moisturizer Under Your Makeup

Moisturizer isn’t just great to help hydrate your skin and protect its moisture barrier, it can also be the perfect base for makeup application. That’s because cleansed and well-moisturized skin is a great canvas. With the right moisturizer your skin can look flawless and your make up will stay on all day. Find out what the right moisturizer can do for your skin underneath your makeup.


1. It Smoothes Your Skin

Makeup such as foundation or concealer can look a lot better when it goes on evenly and smoothly. That’s where the right moisturizer comes in handy. Use a gel-cream or cream that hydrates your skin and also give your skin a more polished appearance. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Moisturizer Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 makes your skin look smooth and polished-looking with a more radiant, even tone. Tinted products go on easily and blend well with your skin without creasing or flaking.


2. It Regulates Oil Production

Applying make up to oily skin can be difficult because it lacks staying power — it can dissolve off of skin without a trace. With the right moisturizer you can prevent this “slipping” of your makeup off your skin and mattify your skin prior to application. You are creating a shine-free foundation that will allow your make up to stay on longer.


3. It Can Cover Blemishes

BB cream is unique in that it provides skin care and makeup-like qualities in one. BB cream can conceal your blemishes before you put on makeup. Use BB cream to hide the appearance of blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, dark spots and skin unevenness. Try Garnier SkinActive’s 5-in1 Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream which controls shine, minimizes the appearance of pores, evens skin tone, hydrates and helps prevent sunburn. It’s a super fast way to achieve a shine-free, more even-toned complexion that hides blemishes.


4. It Can Protect You From The Sun

Many make up products aren’t formulated with SPF and you should never go a day without it. The sun ages and damages our skin. Protect it by using an SPF formulated moisturizer to shield your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays and apply it prior to foundation, tinted moisturizer or concealer. On top of protecting your skin Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Anti-Sun Damage Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 also helps reduce the look of visible sun-damage, revealing radiant, more even-toned, younger-looking skin. Use it to guard your skin from new sun damage and also manage previously sustained damage.
