    It blocks the sun from acting on my skin. It doesn’t repair my skin, rejuvenate my skin, or purport to change the cellular structure of my skin in any way.

    That said, I didn’t wear sunscreen until about two or three years ago. That is probably something I will be regretting at some point. And even then I was outside for hours on Saturday and forgot it.

    Primer doesn't repair, rejuvenate or change the cellular structure of the skin either. It smooths the surface by filling in small indentations in the skin.

    Possible exception of sunscreen because I'm really pretty neutral on it, many of the natural types which I've used (titanium oxide, zinc oxide) irritate my skin after a while so I question if they are really a positive or not compared to sun which also damages skin I guess. I do wear hats and sunglasses almost always. The optometrist also told me recently to wear hats in addition to sunglasses to protect my eyes, but I do.

    I’m not saying that primer is supposed to fix your skin —it is make up. It is a cosmetic improvement, of a temporary nature to make feel pretty. Perhaps it makes you look pretty, I don’t know. If it doesn’t irritate your skin, it is a neutral thing that just costs money.

    I think I had the wrong idea of what primer was. I thought it was something the skin absorbed kind of like a moisturizer!

    There are so many terms now, like BB, whatever that is, and tinted moisturizer--I think that is what I thought primer was, tinted moisturizer.

    Most potions and lotions today contain dimethicone or some other cheap silicone-based ingredient. Often it is the first or second ingredient. I can't use any of it because it irritates rather than helps my skin.

    Well after a recent removal of a spot of melanoma, I'm slathering on sunscreen, for sure! Good thing I'm not vain, as I have a lovely scar from the corner of my eye part way down my cheek. (I tell people its a dueling scar, lol)
