texture differs from person to person and some people have
very sensitive skin and thus are allergic to certain cosmetics.
However it is very difficult to determine what is actually
causing the allergy or irritation. True allergic reactions
are generally characterized by swelling and hive-like breakouts,
and sometimes red, raw skin. Sensitive skins may be allergic
to products like soaps and soap-like formulations (e.g., detergent-based
shampoos). Dyes, formaldehyde (released in the finishing process),
and polyester-blends in fabrics, such as clothing and bed
linen. Essential oils used for aromatherapy, condoms, Vegetable
plants, such as garlic, onion, tomatoes, ginger and carrot.
Cosmetics can also cause allergy to your skin.
Always check out the following things
before using any cosmetic:
too much cosmetics to your skin and using several new
products simultaneously can be one reason of cosmetic
Using used or dirty brushes or applicators also cause
skin allergies. Avoid trying new makeup products with
a brush or applicator still "dirty" from use with other
products. For best results, frequently used applicators
and brushes should be cleaned no less than 2-4 times per
month. Thus always clean and dry cosmetic applicators
before using them for any new products. If not taken care
then you might suffer from "cosmetic acne", including
blackheads, whiteheads and mild irritation.
Also check out each cosmetic product before using them
because they might be adulterated and contaminated causing
proper brush for the particular product that you use because
using wrong brush also causes skin irritation. For most
makeup, use natural-hair brushes for easiest and best
application. With cream-based formulas, however, best
results will come from using synthetic or nylon-hair brushes
because synthetic brushes hold less of the product, enabling
more controlled application.
Take the following precautions
If you have sensitive skin then always test the product
on your skin before using it.
Wash hands before applying cosmetics, especially to
your eyes because your hands contain bacteria that could
cause infection to the eye.
keep a check on the expiry dates of the cosmetics you
are using and throw the cosmetics that have expired.
