    “Silicone is a common ingredient in primers because it sits on top of the skin and fills in imperfections,” Arielle Kauvar, M.D., director of New York Laser and Skincare, told us. “Because it doesn’t absorb into the skin, it’s often used in sensitive skin care products.”  

    Although silicone is often blamed for breakouts, Dr. Kauvar says there’s no need to worry. “Silicone is non-comedogenic and shouldn’t clog pores.” Everyone’s skin reacts differently, of course, so you may need to experiment to see if silicone-packed products work for you.
