Few people can forget the first time they noticed a crease across their brow that remained whether they smiled or frowned. Fine lines and wrinkles are some of first signs of aging to make themselves known, and even though volume loss and hyperpigmentation can take just as great a toll, it is often those pesky crow's feet and laugh lines that drive us crazy when we look in the mirror.
As a result, women (and some men) everywhere seem to constantly be on the hunt for ways to target these creases and achieve a more youthful appearance. Health magazine recently focused on an additional cosmetic product that could help alleviate this issue: Primer. Certain silicone-based primers, the source states, are intended to bounce light off of the skin by filling in creases, which in turn can lead to smoother foundation application.
"Primers, unlike moisturizers, have smoothing silicones that fill in and soften lines," explained celebrity makeup artist Sandy Linter in an interview with the publication.
Of course, no amount of cosmetics can take the place of healthy habits like staying hydrated, keeping stress in check and curbing your appetite for nicotine. In addition, should you find that no amount of primer or moisturizer can alleviate the appearance of fine lines and creases, consider contacting a Long Island plastic surgeon like Dr. James Marotta about your options. At Marotta Aesthetics & Laser, we specialize in dermal fillers, chemical peels and other targeted anti-aging treatments.
